NAD's Masters Series Digital Music Suite is a family of components designed to deliver audiophile sound with your digital music collection. These components let you get away from the PC environment and enjoy your digital music on a more traditional hi-fi audio system. The M52 Digital Music Vault is a safe, reliable massive storage solution for your library of audio files. Three separate 1-terabyte hard disc drives are configured in a "redundant array," which means the system automatically backs itself up so you won't lose data. Total available storage is 2 terabytes, which equals approximately 18,000 high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz music tracks, or 45,000 songs at CD quality.
The M52 sports a streamlined look and a durable steel chassis. The internal disc drives feature low-RPM operation, which means they stay cool and ultra-quiet. Front-panel LEDs display the status of each drive, and an automatic power-saving mode helps reduce energy usage.
Access files on your network or rip music from CDs
The M52 Digital Music Vault connects with NAD's M50 digital music player, which acts as the brain of the system. The M50 gives you access to your existing library of tunes stored on a networked-attached PC or storage drive. It also has a built-in CD slot that automatically rips discs to the Music Vault, using lossless FLAC compression for pristine sound quality. Built-in music management software fetches song metadata and album art automatically using your Internet connection. Speaking of album art: the coolest and most convenient way to browse your whole music library from the comfort of your favorite seat is to download NAD's control app for your iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod touch®. (You'll need Wi-Fi to make that work.)
