NAD MDC Upgrade Module Adds HDMI Switching MDC HDM-2 Module Adds Latest Technology While Future Proofing the Customer’s InvestmentBy RS Staff Published: December 18, 2017 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 NAD Electronics’ latest module in its Modular Design Construction portfolio, the MDC HDM-2, affordably adds HDMI switching and audio capability to five of NAD’s most popular models, the M12, M32, C 368, C 388 and C 390DD. The module is available now with a U.S. MSRP of $299. With NAD’s Modular Design Construction (MDC), adding the latest technology can be as simple as a software upgrade and adding a new hardware module into your stereo amplifier. Based on the latest 6GHz HDMI chip, the MDC HDM-2 includes full support for UHD (4K) video pass through to a video monitor. While no substitute for a full-blown AVR in a home theater setting, adding video capability to a stereo system is often the better solution for customers who prefer simplicity, but demand high performance. With Consumer Electronic Control (CEC), Audio Return Channel (ARC) and High Dynamic Range (HDR10) support, the MDC HDM-2 and its host NAD Amplifier, can be controlled by the TV’s remote control. Performance-minded enthusiasts want to embrace the ever-changing world of AV technology while “future proofing” their original investment. So, NAD devised Modular Design Construction. With MDC, all major digital circuits can be upgraded and replaced to keep the unit forever young and capable. This NAD innovation is a unique architecture that keeps pace with the fast-changing world of technology. With MDC, the ability to easily upgrade a component to include future digital formats is totally unique and unprecedented. “The MDC HDM-2 joins the MDC BluOS-2 High Res Network Audio Module, making NAD’s stereo amplifier line the most versatile on the market today,” explained Greg Stidsen, director of technology and product planning for NAD. From playing vinyl records, to streaming high res MQA, to making games and TV shows sound their best, NAD amplifiers are the complete solution to modern entertainment at the highest level.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
