NAD VM300 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Professional Installation Required: To avoid impacting the warranty, the VM300 should only be installed by an authorized service center.
Compatibility: The NAD VM300 4K video module works with the T187, T777, & T787 AV receiver; as well as the NAD M15 & M17 AV preamplifiers.
4K Video Module: The NAD VM300 allows you to upgrade select NAD AV receivers and preamplifiers that currently support 1080p video to ultra high definition 4K and HDR video. It supports 60 frames per second (4K@60 4:4:4) to fully support all current and future UHD formats. The VM300 also includes the latest HDCP 2.2 copy protection necessary for accessing all commercial UHD video releases.
Note: Installing the VM300 disables all analog video input decoding from Composite, S-Video, and Component Video sources.
BluOS-Ready: The NAD VM300 also adds the option of integrating BluOS Hi-Res multiroom audio into your NAD system. A BluOS kit (sold separately) is also required.
Modular Design Construction: The advantages of a pure digital system are many, but one drawback is the constantly changing delivery formats for digital content. Each of these formats typically requires specialized hardware and software, often with licensed IP and content copy protection. For this reason, NAD places all digital interface circuitry on easily upgradable modules. NAD calls this 'Modular Design Construction' or 'MDC'.

No longer have unit contact nad a Canadian company I am sure they can provide the best answers [ GUY W Apr 30, 2018 ]
1 answer Does the VM300 module support 4k UHD Dolby Vision? I have an Oppo UDP-203 player currently directly feeding my LG OLED65B7A TV. I would like to run the UDP-203 through my NAD T787 A/V recever if the VM300 module will support Dolby Vision like my Oppo player and TV will. [ Larry Nov 30, 2017 ]
It does not appear the VM300 module currently supports Dolby Vision HDR content via the HDMI input/output. For more details or to discuss further please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. [ Larry Dec 05, 2017 ] Staff
Yes and no. NAD told me that they were working on software updates that make it work with ARC universally, but to my knowledge, it only works with some manufacturers. I have a Sony TV. It doesn't work. [ Joseph Nov 30, 2017 ]
The card may not be compatible with older AV receivers. You should check with NAD directly. They were very helpful when I needed advice or contact an NAD dealer. [ Bruce Aug 28, 2017 ]
The NAD VM300 4K video module works with the T187, T777, & T787 AV receiver; as well as the NAD M15 & M17 AV preamplifiers. I'm afraid it would not work with the T775 though. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Larry Apr 07, 2017 ] Staff
Yes, the HDMI inputs/output are backwards-compatible with previous HDMI versions; and would all fully support 3D video at 1080p resolution. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. Hope that helps! [ Larry Feb 14, 2017 ] Staff
