NAD 514


Not all digital outputs are built equal. In the case of the NAD 514 careful attention has been paid so that best use can be made of the ever increasing number of products becoming available with digital inputs (DAT,DCC,MD recorders etc).

The output is buffered and isolated by a transformer from the converter itself and the output impedance has been carefully tailored to produce a precise 75ohm impedance to ensure perfect matching.

A basic player but the engineering is where the money went. Astonishing sound that punches well above it's weight. Timeless.
