NAD is pleased to launch their new flagship Masters M33 BluOS Streaming DAC Amplifier. The M33 can serve as the heart of a reference whole-home audio system. In its simplest form, the M33 ($4,999 US MSRP), is an ultra-high-performance streaming amplifier with superb audiophile sound and outstanding flexibility. Or it can be combined in a BluOS ecosystem of wirelessly networked music players and speakers throughout the home for an outstanding whole-home audio system. The M33 will be available in August 2020.
With the employment of the new HybridDigital™Purifi Eigentakt™ amplifier technology, the M33 follows NAD's long-standing tradition in identifying and developing cutting-edge amplification technology. With a minimum of 200W per channel of amplification on tap and its high current power supply, the M33 can fully exploit the performance of the most sophisticated speaker systems resulting in lifelike performance, exemplified by ultra-low distortion and noise. The measured performance speaks for itself, and the correlation to sound quality is immediately apparent. This is an amp that just gets out of the way and lets the music flow.
Unusual in a class of products often associated with complexity is the M33's intuitive operation, courtesy of the 7" inch touchscreen colour display combined with BluOS. NAD considers it the most advanced network streaming and multi-room operating system available.
BluOS, the pioneer and innovation leader in true wireless high-resolution multi-room systems has a growing ecosystem of compatible products that tightly integrate hardware and software for an exceptional user experience.
With BluOS, the M33 retains all the audiophile features and further adds a range of facilities that will expand its capabilities yet simplifies ease-of-use at the same time. Operable with the BluOS app, the supplied remote control or through hands-free control with any Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant device, the M33's front panel doesn't actually need to be touched. To expand the multi-room locations, adding additional rooms is both easy and affordable.
The inclusion of room correction is somewhat unusual in stereo components, but we believe it is a technology that can improve the performance of almost any listening room. Dirac, one of the most highly regarded Room Correction systems available, not only adjusts for frequency response, but unlike other room correction systems, it also optimises the impulse response. The result is substantially improved musical staging, clarity, voice intelligibility, as well as a deeper and tighter bass. The M33 also supports independent subwoofer outputs, compatible with Dirac's advanced "Bass Control" (Available via a future software update).
