Listen to music on your smartphone or tablet? Stream it wirelessly to the NAD VISO 1 AP and enjoy detailed, lifelike sound. This modern-looking system features both Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth wireless audio streaming technologies, which means it's compatible with most smart devices out there. Whether you own an iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ smartphone or tablet, you can experience accurate, room-filling sound from your favorite audio files, music apps, and even video or game soundtracks.
The system is a composition of curved, flowing lines and surfaces, giving the VISO 1 a beautifully organic look while enhancing the acoustic performance of the speakers.
The VISO 1 AP contains an array of sophisticated electronic circuitry. The system bypasses the audio circuitry in your portable device, handling the incoming digital music signal with its own precise, audiophile-quality DAC (digital-to-analog converter). Each of the two high-performance full-range drivers has its own amplifier, ensuring accurate, robust sound quality. And the two drivers are housed in separate internal enclosures to prevent acoustic cross-interference, keeping the sound clean and clear.
The system was co-designed with NAD's sister company PSB, known for their high-performance speakers. Their expertise went into the VISO 1 AP's carefully constructed woofer. It handles the low frequencies, delivering full, musical bass. A special circuit compensates for clipping, so even at maximum volume there's no harsh distortion with your music. You'll enjoy a spacious soundfield that has real presence.
Another key to the VISO 1 AP's exceptional wireless sound quality is aptX® audio coding, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that retains virtually all the detail of the audio signal it carries. And if your Bluetooth device doesn't have aptX, don't worry — the VISO 1 AP is also backwards-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth. So you can wirelessly stream your music from almost any portable device and still enjoy great sound.
The convenience of Apple AirPlay
Are you an Apple fan? AirPlay technology lets you wirelessly connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch® or computer running iTunes® to the VISO 1 AP via your Wi-Fi® network. Stream audio from your Apple portable directly to the system. Or stream music from the iTunes library on your laptop or desktop computer and use your Apple portable as a remote to make selections, as well as adjust volume. (Requires Apple's free Remote app.)
Even more playback options
The VISO 1 AP has an optical digital input, so you can make a direct connection from your compatible media server or disc player and enjoy exceptional sound. A USB port on the back lets you make a direct connection with your Apple portable device for playback and recharging.
