Surround Sound Preamp Processor:
The NAD M17 V2 AV Surround Sound Preamp Processor is part of NAD's Master series
line-up and is the perfect companion for NAD's M27 seven channel amplifier (745M27,
sold separately) or other high performance multichannel power amplifier.
The M17 V2 is an excellent example of NAD's expertise in quality in the digital
decoding stages, the video processing section, and in the analog preamp stages
for the best overall performance.
24-Bit/192kHz ADC + DAC: With full 24-bit/192kHz
analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion, the NAD M17 V2 will make the
most of your best available source material. Analog audio inputs are converted
to digital signal by making use of M17 V2's superb circuitry called
analog-to-digital converter (ADC). NAD has employed multiple 2-channel DACs in a
dual differential mode, a configuration that yields superb sonic results. NAD
also tailored the circuit design to deliver a high level of technical precision
and audio performance.

Immersive Surround Sound: The NAD M17 V2 goes
beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats - like
Dolby Atmos & DTS:X.
- Dolby Atmos:
Dolby Atmos surround sound technology
dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based
coding, giving the soundtrack designer the ability to precisely place sounds
anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. Now you can enjoy this same
award-winning technology at home with the M17 V2 that lets you connect a
5.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound speaker system and 2 or 4 additional
overhead speakers or Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for up to a 7.1.4ch home
- DTS:X (future firmware update required): Te
latest immersive surround sound system,
DTS:X features object-based audio
coding that lets the soundtrack designer place sonic elements anywhere in
the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a
stunning surround sound experience. Along with DTS:X decoding, the M17 V2
features DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and other DTS audio technologies.
Post Decoding Formats: The NAD M17 V2 supports Dolby
Surround & DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel
- Dolby Surround:
Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch and
multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 7.1ch or Dolby
Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving
the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It
does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control
over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can
be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and
greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer
and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the
entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
- DTS Neo:6: DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder that
takes any two-channel source (including television broadcasts, CDs and DVDs)
and expands it into five or six channels. It also provides separate,
optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion
picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 brings you a more revealing sound from
ordinary stereo and a more expansive home cinema experience.
Dirac Live Room Correction Technology: Proprietary
patented room correction technology is integrated into the M17 V2. With Dirac
Live you can easily measure the acoustic characteristics of your loudspeakers
and room, plus calibrate the sound system to reproduce sound as intended.
Whether you use a PC or MAC computer, the Dirac Live Room Correction Suite
software offers a clear improvement of your audio system by analyzing your
speakers and room acoustics with the help of a measurement microphone that plugs
into your computer or the M17 V2. The software then uses this data to build an
acoustic model of the listening environment and detects the deficiencies. After
careful analysis, Dirac Live corrects for both the timing and amplitude aspects
of the colorations in sound to deliver a uniquely pristine listening experience.
Dirac Live's digital room correction will help your loudspeakers reach their
full potential in any listening room. Dirac Live helps create a natural,
realistic and transparent sound with tighter bass and reduced room modes, in a
way previously not possible.
- System Requirements: Download the
Calibration Tool installer onto your Windows or Mac computer. Compatible
with Windows Vista, 7, 8,10; as well as Mac OS X 10.7 - 10.11. Both your
computer (Windows or Mac) and the M17 V2 must be connected to the same
network. Make sure the M17 V2 has the latest firmware/software update
- How It Works: It takes approximately 15 minutes to
calibrate your room with the Dirac Live Calibration Tool software. Test
signals are sent out from the Dirac Live Calibration Tool through your audio
system and loudspeakers. These signals allow the software to check the
sound's behavior across the entire audio spectrum. Measurements are taken in
9 different positions to provide the best results over the entire listening
area. The speakers and room are optimized in terms of the frequency response
and the impulse response, both vital aspects of sound reproduction. Dirac's
auto-target function will automatically suggest an appropriate target
Direct Mode: Analog or digital sources are automatically
played in their native formats. All the source's audio channels are reproduced
directly. This mode recreates the original sound most faithfully, thereby
producing outstandingly high-quality audio.
EARS: Two-channel recordings, whether stereo or
surround-encoded, are reproduced with proprietary NAD surround processing with
signals output to the Front, Center, Surround, and Surround Back speakers, plus
subwoofer. EARS extracts the natural ambience present in nearly all
well-produced stereo recordings. It does not synthesize any ambience or other
sonic elements and thus remains truer to the sound of the original musical
performance than most other music-surround options. EARS offers realistic,
stable "front-stage" sonic imaging and spacious but unexaggerated ambient
"virtual acoustics" that remain faithful to the original recording. Select EARS
for listening to stereo music recordings and broadcasts. EARS produces a subtle
but highly natural and believable ambience from nearly all "natural-acoustic"
stereo recordings. Typically, these include classical, jazz, and folk genre.
Stereo Modes: The NAD M17 V2 also provides two-channel stereo
playback, including an Enhanced mode and an Analog Bypass mode.
- Stereo: All output is directed to the front left/right
channels. Low frequencies are directed to the subwoofer if one is present in
the Speaker settings. Select 'Stereo' when you wish to listen to a stereo
(or monaural) production, such as music CD or FM broadcast, without surround
enhancement. Stereo recordings whether in PCM/digital or analog form and
whether surround-encoded or not encoded, are reproduced as recorded.
Multi-channel digital recordings (Dolby Digital and DTS) are reproduced in
"Stereo Downmix" mode via the front left/right channels.
- Enhanced Stereo: All recordings are reproduced in
stereo via the maximum speaker complement. Enhanced stereo can be useful for
maximum volume from all channels or for multi-speaker background music
(cocktail party) listening. For this mode, Front, Center, Surround and Back
speakers can be turned ON/OFF as desired.
- Analog Bypass: All analog signals remain in the analog
domain without analog-to-digital conversions. At Analog Bypass, the DSP
circuitry is bypassed but full tone control functions remain. 'Bass
management' or Speaker settings are also not in effect as these are DSP
Audio Enhancements: The NAD M17 V2 provides various audio
enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.
- Tone Controls: The M17 V2 has three Tone Control levels;
Treble, Bass, Center Dialog. Bass and Treble controls only affect the low
bass and high treble leaving the critical midrange frequencies free of
coloration. The Center Dialog control boosts the 'presence' of the midrange
region improving intelligibility of speech. Tone Defeat gives one the choice
of varying or completely bypassing the tone control section of the M17 V2.
- Enhanced Bass: When the subwoofer is set to 'On' and
your front speakers set to 'Large', the option 'Enhanced Bass' becomes
available. Normally, with speakers set to 'Large' the subwoofer is not
active. The Enhanced Bass option allows full range operation of the speakers
with the additional bass contribution of the subwoofer. This feature is
particularly useful when one wants to experience maximum bass output. Please
note that due to acoustic cancellation effects, the bass response may be
uneven when using this setting.
Level Adjustments: The NAD M17 V2 AV Surround Sound Preamp
Processor provides the following level adjustments.
- Gain Adjustment: Gain adjustment (+/-12dB) allows all
sources to play back at the same volume level so you don't need to adjust
the volume every time a new source is selected. It is generally preferable
to reduce the level of the loudest source rather than making louder the
- Dynamic Range Control: You can select the effective
dynamic range (subjective range from soft to loud) for playback of Dolby
Digital soundtracks. For fully cinematic effect, always select 100% (the
default). Settings of 75%, 50%, and 25% progressively reduce dynamic range,
making soft sounds comparatively louder while limiting the peak loudness of
Balanced & Unbalanced Outputs:
The M17 V2 AV Surround Sound Preamp Processor offers both balanced (XLR) and
unbalanced (RCA) outputs to connect to NAD's M27 power amplifier or other high-end
- Balanced XLR: Balanced XLR jacks are used for Front Left/Right,
Center, Surround Left/Right, Surround Back Left/Right, Front Height
Left/Right, Rear Height Left/Right, and Mono-Subwoofer channels.
- Unbalanced RCA: Unbalanced RCA jacks are used for Front
Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, Surround Back Left/Right, and dual
discrete Subwoofer channels.
Note: Balanced XLR connectivity offers superior sound quality with
greater noise reduction versus unbalanced RCA connections.
HDMI 2.0b: The NAD M17 V2 AV Surround Sound Preamp Processor
has five HDMI 2.0b inputs, one HDMI 2.0b output, and one HDMI 1.4 output. The
inputs are assignable using the AV surround sound pre-amplifier's on-screen
menu. The two HDMI outputs are parallel so the same video signal is output
through both and can be used simultaneously.
- 4K/60Hz: All of the HDMI inputs and the HDMI 1 Output
support up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @
60 frames per second on all of its HDMI inputs and output (pass-through only
- no upscaling). It will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video
signals via HDMI. The HDMI 2 output is only 1080p/HDCP 1.4 compatible.
- HDCP 2.2: All of the receiver's HDMI jacks support HDCP
2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for
4K video transmission.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All of the receiver's HDMI
inputs and the HDMI 1 output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and
YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling,
luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate;
resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a
video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. The
HDMI 2 output only supports YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling.
- High Dynamic Range (HDR): All of the receiver's HDMI
inputs and the HDMI 1 output support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video. High
Dynamic Range (HDR) provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously
enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR
reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels,
creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle
nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest
whites and colors, plus greater depth. The receiver supports HDR 10 (no
support for Dolby Vision or HLG). The HDMI 2 output does not support any HDR
3D Ready: The NAD M17 supports 3D HDMI pass-through from
connected 3D-compatible Blu-ray, games and broadcast devices to 3D-compatible
HDTVs (all 3D components must be connected via HDMI. 3D provides a more engaging
audio and video consumer experience. Note that special eyewear may be required
for viewing 3D content.
Lip Sync Delay: Video signals may take longer to process
than audio signals, depending on the connected video equipment. The audio signal
can be delayed up to 120ms to synchronize with the video signal.
Audio Return Channel (ARC): If the connected TV has an HDMI
ARC Input, the audio signal can be transferred from the TV (when its internal
tuner is used) to the M17 through a single HDMI cable, so a second cable isn't
No Analog Video Decoding: Because NAD's VM300 4K MDC module
is pre-installed, all of the M17's analog video input decoding from Composite,
S-Video, and Component Video sources is disabled.

Note: The NAD AV Remote App is not supported by Android.
Main Remote: The Main remote control is pre-coded with
controls for other NAD components. It will also learn commands from other
remotes, controlling up to eight components. The remote's buttons are backlit,
but an ambient light sensor keeps the light from engaging when you don't need
it. The light sensor and lighting duration are both adjustable. Up to 64 macro
commands can be programmed using the function keys. A mini USB Type B port on
the remote (cable not included) allows you to upload and download the remote
configuration through a Windows PC using NAD's Proprietary programming software
(availible on NAD's website).
Zone 2 Remote: The secondary remote control is a
discrete compact remote for controlling the Zone 2 features of the M17 V2 (not
zones 3 or 4), it allows full control of the Zone 2 source selection and other
applicable features. The remote will work from a different room using an IR
sensor and hub or the IR sensor of a compatible NAD component in the second zone
(either must be wired back to the location of the M17 V2).
HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronic Control): Consumer Electronics
Control (CEC) is a set of commands that utilizes HDMI's two-way communication to
allow for single remote control of any CEC-enabled devices connected with HDMI.
A CEC command will trigger the necessary commands over HDMI for an entire system
to auto-configure itself to respond to the command.
- Power: The M17 V2 will automatically go to standby
mode if it receives a CEC standby command. On the other hand, if the M17 V2
receives a CEC power up command, the M17 V2 will correspondingly switch ON
from standby mode.
- Source Switch: The M17 V2 will automatically switch
sources if another CEC device requests a Source change. For example, if Play
is pressed on a BD Player with CEC, the M17 V2 and TV with CEC will
automatically switch to their respective input connections; the M17 V2
switching to the HDMI input where the BD Player is connected while the TV
will switch to its input where the M17 V2's HDMI Monitor Out is connected.
- Audio System: The M17 V2 will broadcast a CEC message
indicating it is an active audio system. A CEC compatible TV will usually
mute its audio output when this happens. When this option is enabled, the
M17 V2 will also respond to CEC volume and mute commands. For example, a
CEC TV may forward the volume commands from its remote to the M17 V2.
Custom Integration Remote Options: The NAD M17 V2 is fitted with the
following custom remote inputs/outputs.
- DC Trigger: There are four 3.5mm +12 volt trigger
jacks, one input and three assignable outputs. The input allows the M17 V2
to be turned on by an external component; the outputs allow the M17 V2 to
turn on other components. Each output is individually programmable and can
engage when the AV surround sound pre-amplifier is turned on, when a
specific secondary zone is turned on, when any secondary zone is turned on,
or when a specific source is used. The outputs can also be delayed up to 15
- IR Input/Outputs: There is an IR input (3.5mm), used to
control this unit using an optional infrared repeater or the IR output of
another component. There are also four IR output (3.5mm) used to control
other compatible components.
- RS-232 Port: The rear-panel RS-232 port allows
connection to a compatible PC or external whole-house control system from
companies such as AMX or Crestron. NAD is a certified partner of AMX and
Crestron and fully supports these external devices.
- Ethernet (LAN) Port: The M17 V2 is fitted with a Ethernet
Port (RJ-45) to connect to your home network for IP control. With your PC and
the M17 V2 on the same network, it allows remote control of the M17 V2 via
compatible external controllers.
Un-Switched AC: The maximum output on the 2-prong
un-switched AC outlet on the rear panel is 120 watts/1 amp.
Modular Design Construction (MDC):
With MDC all major digital circuits can be upgraded
and replaced to keep the M17 V2 up-to-date. This NAD innovation is a unique
architecture that keeps pace with the fast changing world of digital formats by
allowing connectivity and feature upgrades as new technology becomes available.
Future video formats and surround sound decoders can be easily accommodated with
NAD's exclusive MDC, allowing critical digital hardware and software to be
upgraded. MDC helps to prevent obsolescence, so you can keep pace with the
latest developments in high performance AV through dealer or do-it-yourself
install modules. The M17 V2 can be upgraded as your needs and tastes develop, and
you only need to replace the module you want to upgrade, not the entire AV
The M17 V2s "AV Presets" allow you to customize your audio/video
playback, and recall them with a single key-press (up to 5 AV presets can be
configured). The parameters Listening Mode, DSP Options and Tone Controls,
together with Speaker Setup and Display Setup are stored together as a single
AV Preset. You may create one AV Preset optimized for pop music and another
for classical. One more AV Preset can be set up to recall each family member's
favorite setting or one for fully cinematic home-theater playback, and yet
another one for late-night movies; with each AV Preset fine-tuned to a
particular scenario or preference.
Front-Panel + On-Screen Display: The M17 V2 features a
front-panel vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) which displays visual information
about the current settings like the active Source, volume level, listening mode,
audio format, and other related indicators. In addition to the unit's
front-panel display, the M17 V2 employs a simple, self-explanatory on-screen
display menus system which will appear on your connected television. The OSD can
be output through HDMI only.
Sleep Mode: The Sleep Mode timer will switch the M17 V2 to
Standby mode automatically after a preset number of minutes (15-90 min.).
Smart Power: By using separate analog and digital power
supplies, the M17 V22 can provide maximum audio performance. A high power
switch mode for the digital and video section, and linear power supply for the
ultra high-speed audio processing, provides the required high current and stable
voltages to maintain audio precision. Analog and Digital sections are kept
completely separate for maximum sonic performance. Standby power consumption is
also ultra-low at <0.5W.
