NAD M51 Direct Digital DAC Impressions - Page 45

post #661 of 1156

That's exactly what I'm planning to do today after I get my new piece. Will let you know!

post #662 of 1156

So I've compared the 2 and I will be selling my NAD M51 - I will put an ad in the For Sale section soon. You can also send me a private em.

 

It's not that I don't like the NAD, I do, but I can't keep both pieces, and my new player's DAC will do me OK.

Subtle has a cost many choose to refuse as too expensive a value. I respect that.

I have since sold the NAD.

Just curious, did you ever use your NAD as a preamp?

Yes I did - when I first got it. Worked OK, but felt something was lacking, so I purchased a used Ayre K-3x 2-channel pre and never used the NAD as a pre again.

Which is the newer version? 1.41?

Yes I did, didnt like the sound and reverted back to 1.39.

 

I wonder if there is a newer version than 1.41?

Does anyone have firmware version 1.39, I like to go back to this version, a few posters here have reported different SQ after loading 1.41, I think I have discovered something has been altered as my M51 has lower dynamics. If you can also direct me to the site for the boot loader.

 

Was anyone able to find a source for 1.39?

Mine came loaded with 1.39 and I went to 1.41 shortly after getting it home. After reading some replies regarding 1.41 I just wanted to take a listen again.
