Dolby® TrueHD™, DTS® Master Audio™ and NAD’s innovative EARS™ (stereo-to-surround) circuits deliver hyper-realism, capturing every dimension of a performance. Add bit-perfect video processing and the M17 delivers the most accurate sound and image experience you’ve ever had.
Thanks to MDC, the M17 guarantees that your home system is ready for all future upgrades, ultimately ensuring that you’ll never fall behind the curve when it comes to the latest features. Designed to broaden your home viewing and listening experiences, the M17 lives up to its moniker as a masterful preamp.
Modular Design Construction (MDC)
With MDC all major digital circuits can be upgraded and replaced to keep the M17 forever young and capable. This NAD innovation is a unique architecture that keeps pace with the fast changing world of digital formats by allowing connectivity and feature upgrades as new technology becomes available. Future video formats and surround sound decoders can be easily accommodated with our exclusive MDC,
allowing critical digital hardware and software to be upgraded. MDC defies premature obsolescence, so you can keep pace with the latest
developments in high performance AV through dealer-installed modules.
Your M17 can be upgraded as your needs and tastes develop, and you only need to replace the module you want to upgrade, not the entire AV
Fully Featured Surround
The M17 carries on the enviable task of representing NAD’s finest surround sound performance. It offers full HDMI video switching and
surround sound decoding along with 7.1 balanced outputs. Brimming with a full complement of sophisticated features like the high resolution
lossless surround formats from Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio decoding, NAD’s own renowned stereo-to-surround EARS (Enhanced
Ambient Recovery System) circuit optimized for 7-channel surround, and Audyssey MultEQ setup and room correction, the M17 provides
the highest levels of performance. The surround mode of the source material is automatically detected via the digital inputs of the M17, and
the most advanced form of decoding, based on your setup, is switched in. Conversion of the encoded digital bitstream is performed with high
resolution and extremely linear D/A converters carefully selected for their performance capabilities.
Fully Balanced Audio with Separate Linear Supply
Like all professional recording studios and sound stages, the M17 offers fully balanced audio outputs for all seven channels. Locking connectors and special interface electronics allow long cable runs without noise pickup or signal loss. The silent black background and explosive dynamics afforded by the balanced line stage amplifier adds drama and excitement to your music and movies.
A full suite of video switching caters to all the popular video formats (HDMI, Component Video, S-Video, and Composite Video). Digital inputs and outputs are available in both coaxial and optical formats to make it easy to attach all your digital sources. Digital inputs are converted to analogue for use in Zone 2, and you can choose to convert unused tape outputs for Zone 3 and Zone 4 use with independent source selection and volume control. We have also made it easy to add more speakers for listening to music in additional rooms. IR repeaters, 12V triggers to automatically switch amplifiers on and off, and an RS-232 data port makes it easy to connect to highly advanced automated control systems, such as Savant and Control4. Thoughtful features like discrete On and Off codes, direct access to inputs and FM station presets facilitates the integration of the M17 into elaborate remote control systems.
Customize with AV Presets
The M17’s sleek TFT touch panel display makes setup and control easier than ever before. Unique features like AV presets and a completely
flexible input setup allow unprecedented flexibility and ease of use. The M17 offers five independent AV presets that store speaker level and tone control settings for instant recall, making it easy to custom tailor your system for different types of program material. Encoded surround modes like Dolby Digital and DTS are automatically selected if the program is so encoded. The M17 also remembers your last used settings when switched in and out of Standby mode.
Complete and Compact
The M17 combines all the control and decoding functions in one compact chassis, giving up nothing to the convenience of the receiver, yet by
separating the power amp stages gives a big jump in performance and flexibility. Match it with our M27 Seven Channel Power Amplifier with
the latest advancement in hybrid digital amplification. The M17 is an excellent example of the NAD Design Team’s expertise in quality in
the digital decoding stages, the video processing section, and in the analogue preamp stages for the best overall performance. Along with
the new touch screen and ergonomic refinements that simplify operation, the M17 will be the dream command centre of your home cinema.
