Upgrade to HDM-1 for NAD M12 [ Wayne  Jun 21, 2018 ]

Making my stereo integrated into a mini-AVR, the perfect device for my setup. [ Gregory  Apr 30, 2018 ]

Q
Does HDMI sound better than optical output to the NAD amplifier?
[ Shawn  Jan 22, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
HDMI cables can transmit more audio formats including the ones used on Blu-ray discs than optical cables. My reason for adding the HDMI module to the NAD amplifier was to add HDMI switching and control options for my system similar to those available with AV receivers. Whether HDMI cables are better than optical cables for those audio formats that both are capable of is a question for better ears than mine.

Q
I'm trying to connect my Roku Ultra and Blu Ray player to the MDC HDM-2 and can't seem to get it to work. I have a Samsung TV with a one connect box and the only thing connected to it is the arc in to the hdmi of on the MDC HDM-2. What am I doing wrong? Obviously, I need help. Thank you for your time

Q
Can anyone tell me if the hdmi out is the port used to connect to hdmi arc on my one connect box? I have a Samsung TV with a one connect box that has an hdmi arc in port. Thank you for your time

HDMI OUT is the ARC channel. Works very well!
[ Stephen  Aug 30, 2019 ]
A
Yes, the HDMI IN will support ARC, and CEC. Keep in mind that this device only supports Stereo decoding, and will not function with Surround encoding. This caused some frustration for me, as I was unable to force certain applications on my Android TV (such as Netflix) to output in Stereo mode. This resulted in *no* audio output at all from those applications.
[ Garett  Aug 29, 2019 ]
Q
Can I use an HDMI splitter to connect this to universal disk player? Any recommended?
[ Greg5  Jul 19, 2019 ]

A
This HDMI circuit board i for use with specific NAD stereo receivers. This allows you to have HDMI switching capabilities in the NAD receivers that did not have it to begin with. You can connect a disc player to these HDMI ports when used in a compatible NAD receiver to transmit audio and video signals. If you want to discuss this further or want more specific information, one of our friendly advisors would love to help you out! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
