Product Description

Innovative Technology
The D 7050 combines NAD's most advanced digital platform, the Direct Digital technology first introduced in our $6,000 award-winning Masters Series M2 amplifier, with Apple's AirPlay Wi-Fi streaming technology to create the ultimate plug 'n play solution for wireless music in your home. We don't just speak Apple, we can also stream any UPnP audio content on your home network. Don't have a network? You can also stream directly from your smartphone or laptop using the latest Bluetooth High Fidelity Codec; aptX. You can also play from a wired connection from your computer or from a USB Drive. The only thing missing is an analog input; you see there are no analog circuits in the D 7050! The uncompromising performance of the D 7050 is made possible, in a large part, by the elimination of noisy and resonant analog circuits that can obscure musical detail and soften musical transients.

Direct Digital
Direct Digital means there are no noise and distortion producing analog circuits in the D 7050; your music remains digital right up to the speaker outputs. NAD's Direct Digital technology of the D 7050 performs all preamplifier functions in the digital domain using sophisticated software to control all aspects of performance. Digital is converted to Analog by a simple passive two-pole reconstruction filter located right at the speaker outputs. This radical design is the worlds' first successful closed loop digital amplifier. Closed loop means that we compare the output to the input, and then compensate for any differences to achieve a 'perfect' result.

Small Is Beautiful
We've packed 4 times the amount of circuitry into ¼ the space of our traditional analog Receivers. You see, high speed digital circuits perform better with very short signal paths. For this reason we use large scale integrated circuits (LSI's) and multi-layer printed circuit boards to optimize speed and performance. The high efficiency of our Direct Digital amplifier technology significantly reduces the size of the heat sinks and power supply, which are physically large in high performance analog amplifiers, while offering improved sound quality. The result is a cool running, compact powerhouse with remarkable performance.

Spotify Connect Spotify connect

You get the electronic crossover function for perfect subwoofer integration, as well as PerfectPitch™, a custom EQ library that fine tunes the response of your D 7050 when used with supported models of PSB Speakers. This integration of amplifier and speaker is a unique capability made possible by the powerful DSP engine inside the D 7050.

Mean, Green, and Clean
NAD has taken amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, lower noise, and lower power consumption. Compact and cool, the D 7050 can power and control expensive high-end loudspeakers while playing them at life-like levels! The D 7050's pure digital amplification highlight's NAD's major focus on finding new technology that can improve musical performance while consuming less power to operate. Plus it uses fewer non-renewable resources in manufacturing. The D 7050 packs a mean musical punch that would make any music lover proud.

  • "the D 7050 immediately exhibited the kind of qualities that have endeared audiophiles to its Direct Digital brethren: an ultraquiet background, tight control of the music, and a neutral tonality that let the music do the talking." "To my ears, NAD is producing some of the finest amplifiers available at any price." - SoundStage editor Colin Smith 

    Source/Read full review: SoundStage, October 2015, D7050 awarded SoundStage Product of the Year - Exceptional Value Award

    The way people listen to music has changed drastically over the last 10 years, but home audio components have been surprisingly slow to keep up, refusing to slim 

    down and offer basic wireless connectivity that's standard on other devices.

    That's the thought NAD had in mind when designing its latest slate of digital-audio components. The company has announced three new models, the D 1050 USB DAC ($500), D 3020 integrated amplifier ($500), and D 7050 network receiver ($1,000), each sporting a sleek, compact look that's in sharp contrast to the bulky boxes home audio components usually come in. All three models feature built-in Bluetooth (with support for the better-sounding apt-X codec), with the D 7050 also adding Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and Internet radio support.

    All of the models are relatively similar, with the features breaking down as follows:

    Each of the components are designed to be used in either the vertical or horizontal orientation, and the OLED screen on the D 7050 actually changes its orientation depending on how it's aligned. The front panels are noticeably free of the button clutter that plagues most mainstream AV receivers, with just a knob for volume and a few status lights, plus an additional knob for input selection on the D 7050. The boxes themselves are lighter than they look, which isn't too surprising considering they all use digital amplifiers.

    The D 3020 (named after the classic 3020) sticks out as the sweet-spot model of the line, as a basic small amplifier for a stereo or 2.1-channel setup that still delivers the convenience of wireless audio streaming via Bluetooth. It's especially attractive if you use your TV as a switcher, making it a suitable replacement for a full-size AV receiver in a much more attractive package.
