Benefits of NAD M12 Digital Preamp DAC:
NAD DirectDigital™ Innovation
DirectDigital™ amplification delivers a remarkable performance. The 35-bit data path with 24-bit coefficients and 62-bit accumulation, and dithered truncation back to 35-bits after DSP functions guarantee the overall 24-bit accuracy. With this degree of resolution, the entire preamp functionality is achieved with unmatched precision in the digital domain. Because of the super high resolution, even 24-bit files are processed eliminating common problems like truncation or loss of information.
Standard inputs include AES/EBU, Asynchronous 24/192 USB, coaxial and optical digital inputs and balanced and single-ended line-level inputs including a high-performance MC/MM phono stage. Rounding out the picture, a pure Class-A buffer utilizing the latest generation of Super OP Amps provides low impedance balanced and single-ended connections to power amplifiers or active loudspeakers. Remote control all functions and IR repeaters, 12V triggers, and a serial port to make integration with state-of-the-art control systems in a snap.
