Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

NAD M12 system. Purchased 4K TV and new card, HDM-2, was needed to pass 4K picture. Updated the software and then was basically plug and play. Better than having to buy a new processor...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased the HDMI-2 mdc board for my NAD C368 and new 4K TV. It's not entirely plug and play. I had to update the C368 software before the new card was recognized. Another software install to load the HDMI-2 software. You need a usb thumb drive for the updates. Works well with the ARC HDMI on my Sony TV. Only the board is limited to PCM 2-channel audio.
