If you have a home Wi-Fi network and a computer or smart phone running iTunes, just add the NAD D 7050 plus your favorite loudspeakers and you’ll have a state-of-the-art audio system in a stylish and compact package the fits anywhere in your home or apartment. Wireless access is universal, as the D 7050 also supports Bluetooth aptX for point-to-point streaming without a network.

A premium headphone amplifier output with a high quality volume control is also included for your personal listening. Downloads and streaming, instant access to all the music in the world, has been combined with audio excellence as never before.

Innovative technology
The D 7050 combines NAD's most advanced digital platform, Direct Digital (first introduced in the $6,000 award-winning Masters Series M2 amplifier) with Apple's AirPlay Wi-Fi streaming technology to create the ultimate plug 'n play solution for wireless music in your home. This modern amp doesn’t just speak Apple — it can also stream any UPnP audio content on your home network. Don't have a network? You can stream directly from your smartphone or laptop using the latest Bluetooth High Fidelity Codec, aptX. You can also play from a wired connection from your computer or from a USB Drive. It can even recharge a docked iPad while streaming.

Direct Digital
Direct Digital means there are no noise and distortion producing analog circuits in the D 7050; your music remains digital right up to the speaker outputs. NAD's Direct Digital technology performs all preamplifier functions in the digital domain, using sophisticated software to control all aspects of performance. Digital is converted to Analog by a simple passive two-pole reconstruction filter located right at the speaker outputs. This radical design is the worlds' first successful closed-loop digital amplifier. Closed-loop means that the D 7050 compares the output to the input, and then compensates for any differences to achieve a “perfect” result.

Small is beautiful
NAD has packed four times the amount of circuitry into1/4 the space of traditional analog receivers. High speed digital circuits perform better with very short signal paths, so the D 7050 employs large scale integrated circuits (LSIs) and multi-layer printed circuit boards to optimize speed and performance. The high efficiency of NAD’s Direct Digital amplifier technology significantly reduces the size of the heat sinks and power supply, which are physically large in high performance analog amplifiers, while offering improved sound quality. The result is a cool running, compact powerhouse with remarkable performance.
