NAD Electronics has released the improved Masters M10 V2 streamer amplifier, positioned as a universal music device that only needs speakers in addition. The novelty is based on BluOS, is capable of delivering up to 100 watts per channel and supports Dolby Digital Surround sound to create a home theater on compatible wireless speakers.

In addition, wired switching is available to the user: RCA, optics, coaxial connector, HDMI eARC and USB. There is also a preamp output and a subwoofer jack. The main speaker terminals are equipped with a Bridge Mode switch.
The company paid special attention to the support of current technologies. For example, the Masters M10 V2 is AirPlay 2 and Roon compatible. There is support for voice assistants and the ability to integrate into control systems like Crestron, Lutron and Control4.
According to NAD Electronics, the new device is equipped with top-end components – including an audiophile ESS Saber DAC with 32-bit / 384 kHz quality and nCore-based amplifier modules. The system supports almost all lossless formats, it is also compatible with MQA. In addition, the device received built-in sound correction technology from Dirac (you can save up to five profiles).
