Product Research


Modular Design Construction: The advantages of a pure digital system are many, but one drawback is the constantly changing delivery formats for digital content. Each of these formats typically requires specialized hardware and software, often with licensed IP and content copy protection. For this reason, NAD places all digital interface circuitry on easily upgradable modules. NAD calls this 'Modular Design Construction' or 'MDC'.

DD HDMI-1 HDMI Module: The NAD DD HDMI-1 is a HDMI upgrade module for the NAD C 390DD direct digital integrated amplifier (745C390DD, sold separately). The  DD HDMI-1 offers three HDMI inputs and one output with video pass through. This opens up the possibility of using the C 390DD  as the heart of a "Video 2.0" system using the mandatory two-channel linear PCM soundtrack (up to 24-bit/192kHz) from Blu-ray or DVD to make a compelling two-channel high definition theatre presentation. Many Symphony Orchestras and some specialty music labels are also released in HD recordings on Blu-ray or DVD. The DD HDMI-1 is 1080p & 3D video compatible, but there is no surround sound decoding or video processing.

Note: This module should be installed by a NAD-authorized dealer or service center; not intended to be a user-installed accessory.
