NAD M51 Direct Digital DAC Impressions - Page 45
Gear mentioned in this thread:
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.
I have since sold the NAD.
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.
