With NAD’s Modular Design Construction (MDC), adding the latest technology can be as simple as a software upgrade and adding a new hardware module into your stereo amplifier. The MDC USB DSD module allows users to experience the convenience of computer music playback and streaming, in high resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz PCM and DSD up to DSD256, combined with the music performance of their NAD hifi system. It adds USB Audio 2 for both PCM and DSD playback capability to six of NAD’s most popular stereo (pre-) amplifiers – M33, M32, M12, C 388, C 368 and C 658*.

Asynchronous USB Connection

Thanks to the Asynchronous USB connection with the MDC USB DSD module, computer sound has been eliminated so music flows freely. The module bypasses the computer’s low-quality DAC, clocks and associated circuitry that cause jitter and distortion by using the higher quality DAC in select NAD amplifiers.

* C 658 support is expected in April 2021.
