Considerable interest in NADAC has come from the professional community that has been Merging’s main market for 25 years. In recognition of the need to service that market with continuity, Independent Audio of Portland, Maine will add NADAC to its existing portfolio of Horus, Hapi, Pyramix and Ovation.

“Getting master quality audio into the home is the holy grail.” commented Merging’s President, Claude Cellier. “Our professional customers including artists, sound engineers, singers and producers have won hundreds of Grammys® over the years. NADAC makes their great sounding music accessible anywhere and allows these amazing recordings to be presented as the artists and producers intended.”
On a Higher Note’s Founder and President, Philip O’Hanlon, is excited about the first-to-market advantage Merging Technologies’ new integrated network DACs possess. “There is no doubt that the NADAC performs exceptionally well, offering high fidelity multi-channel analog to digital music conversion with the highest sampling rates and formats. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this smart DXD and DSD compatible whole-home audio streaming solution to our dealer base. For the first time, music lovers can enjoy superb sonic transparency along with the convenience of being able to expand into a multi-zone, multi-source networked environment.”

The RAVENNA/AES67 network technology was specifically designed for audio use and removes traditional clocking and jitter problems between the host and the DAC. It also removes any cable length limitation allowing complete multi-room and multi-zone control with multiple hosts and multiple DACS being simply connected. Merging realised the potential of this technology and worked with the RAVENNA developers to ensure that DSD and DXD sampling rates could be easily handled with sufficient channels for the new immersive sound formats as well as the existing catalog of surround files.
