NAD D 1050 USB DAC
MAGIC FROM A DAC, THE D 1050
The NAD D 1050 USB DAC is the best way to add Computer Audio and HD
Digital to your component hi-fi system. Both the digital and the analog
circuits are highly optimized and based on techniques developed over
40 years of NAD audio engineering excellence. The digital inputs cater
to many different digital sources. SPDIF inputs support balanced AES/EBU,
coaxial and optical connectors. The USB input is very special; its asynchronous
operation mode uses the D 1050s high precision clock to control
the output of the connected USB device for lowest possible jitter. It
also supports USB Audio Codec 2.0 allowing 192kHz signal transmission.

The digital processing of the
D 1050 features Delta/Sigma architecture with active oversampling filters.
This technique effectively reduces out of band noise while maintaining
linear phase response and virtual elimination of filter ringing in the
pass band. This assures detailed and extended high frequency response
while taking full advantage of the extended response of recordings sampled
at 88.2kHz and above.
We pack a lot of premium high spec parts
inside the D 1050. But premium parts need optimal implementation to
get the actual performance they promise. This is where NAD expertise
with both digital and analog circuits shows its true value. Ultra short
impedance-controlled signal paths are made possible by multi-layer circuit
boards and micro-miniaturized surface mount components soldered with
lead-free high silver content solder. These details all contribute to
the remarkable performance of this advanced DAC.
Analog outputs are fixed and include
both balanced and single-ended connections. We also include a premium
quality headphone amplifier output that includes a high quality volume
control. Output impedance is extremely low, minimizing the effect of
connecting cables and keeping noise vanishingly low.
