USB, Optical & Coaxial Inputs From the maker of the M51 DAC…

The new D series components by NAD (two amplifiers and this DAC) share a unique physical design which allows horizontal or vertical placement. The latter is handy for use as a desktop system, being very space efficient. The D1050 DAC is built with reference to the superb M51 DAC, regarded by many as the best buy in high-end DACs on the market. The obvious giveaway detail on the D1050, indicating how serious NAD are with this product, is the balanced XLR output option on the back panel. This is only found on upmarket, full-width models, but here it is on a DAC costing less than half the price of those full-size component DACs.
There are five inputs, including the Asynchronous USB, 2 x Coaxial and 2 x Optical. The USB and Coaxial digital inputs will support sampling rates up to 192kHz, while the Optical does, as is normal, up to 96kHz.
As NAD themselves say: 
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 88.2 kHz and above.
NAD packs 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.
