NAD M51 Direct Digital DAC Impressions - Page 4

post #46 of 1156

Wow.. the dollar is less than  canadian. I remember when (I have family in Ontario) Id go to Canada and get like 1.50 for $1.00US.

Thanks... M

The Canadian and US Dollars float around parity lately. One day one is worth .01 more, they other, the other is up. MSRP here is $2k as well.

I picked up my own for $1760 USD, including shipping.

I managed to get my M51 at a very attractive price here in Singapore. Here are some impressions of mine that I posted in another forum.

Just look at the long post at the top of the page. Anyway, a quick summary would be that I am extremely impressed with this DAC.

Nice review!

I'd love to try it but I just got a new DAC and I'm happy with it so there's no reason for me to order one and compare.

Oh hush. Posted so I can keep up with the thread (because I am interested).

Edit: Better yet send me yours so I can compare. biggrin.gif

If it weren't for the border issue, I would have no problem loaning it.

 

Unfortunately I'm not willing to pay tax on it again when it (presumably) returns.

Though you are of course welcomed for auditions, you can even sit in my chair.beerchug.gif

 where you bought? I enquiry that said only Aug have stock.

post #57 of 1156

Picked one up... the last one! They said they will be out for months...I wanted to wait for the Anedio, but I have no freaking patience! lol

Should be here middle of next week. Got it for 1759 USD. Not too bad. Wife is going to chop certain parts off me. I will have a high voice.

Psyched.

 

I can compare it to my Bryston BDA-1 DAC which costs more actually.

Nice! Looking forward to your comparo.

Ive got a good question... Will the Balanced and unbalanced outputs work at the same time? If I use it on 2.1 and as a preamp instead of just a DAC will both outputs work for speakers and sub.

M

post #60 of 1156
Yes, both balanced and SE outputs work simultaneously. I am driving my sub via the SE out and my amp balanced.
