NAD D 1050
Our D 1050 USB DAC is the best way to add Computer Audio and HD Digital to your component hi-fi system. In fact, all digital sources will get a boost when the D 1050 takes over for the inferior digital circuitry found in everything from Blu-ray, DVD and CD players, to music streamers and set-top boxes. Both the digital and the analogue circuits are highly optimised and based on techniques developed over 40 years of NAD audio engineering excellence. There is no reason to sacrifice audio quality for convenience, as our D 1050 so vividly demonstrates.
The D 1050’s digital inputs allow you to connect many different digital sources. SPDIF inputs support both coaxial and optical connectors. The USB input is very special—its asynchronous operation mode uses the D 1050’s high precision clock to control the output of the connected USB device for lowest possible jitter. It also supports USB Audio Codec 2.0 allowing 192kHz signal transmission via USB.
Analogue outputs are fixed for highest resolution and include both balanced and single-ended connections. The D 1050 also includes a premium discrete headphone amplifier output with a high quality volume control. Output impedance is extremely low, minimizing the effect of connecting cables and keeping noise vanishingly low.
