NAD Electronics has unveiled a new wireless digital music system, the first in the company’s series of wireless music devices under its NAD VISO sub brand.
The NAD VISO 1 leads NAD’s new series of wireless music devices.
Leading this new series, NAD has announced the immediate availability of the NAD VISO 1 — a wireless digital music system that brings together the company’s direct digital technology, acoustic design by PSB’s Paul Barton, and cosmetics from noted designer David Farrage.
NAD VISO 1 offers not only docking and charging capability for iPhones and iPods, but also the new high fidelity aptX Bluetooth wireless capability. The included digital optical input allows an easy sonic upgrade with devices such as Sonos or Apple TV. NAD VISO 1 can also be the main playback device for a flat panel TV.
The NAD VISO 1 incorporates NAD’s highest-end Direct Digital DAC/amplifier technology. In fact, it uses the same Direct Digital technology that has revolutionized digital amplification, first seen in the company’s $6000 Masters Series M2 DAC/Amplifier. As a pure digital platform with no analog circuits, the NAD VISO 1 creates an absolute silence, according to the company — instruments seem to appear out of a totally black background, enhancing dynamics and imaging.
“The NAD VISO 1 is a true high-end sound system designed for those who demand the best in sound. Our audience isn’t defined by lifestyle as much as they are defined by their commitment to an exceptional, clean, vivid music experience,” said Greg Stidsen, NAD’s director of technology and product planning.
“The NAD VISO 1 will change the entire compact music system category in the same way that the NAD 3020 amplifier completely redefined performance audio for high fidelity enthusiasts in the late 1970s,” Stidsen said. “This is a revolutionary product for the next generation of Smart Music dwellers.”
