Description

A hybrid of NAD’s renowned M50 and M52, the M50.2 Digital Music Player offers everything you need to hear the music you love in the best quality possible. Harnessing the power of BluOS®, the NAD M50.2 allows you to organize and store your music library, while making it easily accessible via the BluOS app.

A high resolution network music player, the M50.2 was designed to house 24/192 files whether it be from a CD or music download site. The M50.2 CD transport can playback or rip to internal storage, and ripping is completely automatic. You can also connect to the M50.2 via Bluetooth®, opening the doors to virtually any music streaming service. The M50.2 brings you closer to your favourite music and makes it remarkably simple to access it. A wondrous integration of hardware and software, the M50.2 has 2TB of storage and a mirrored backup, ensuring you’ll never have to sacrifice any music or worry about losing it.

Digital Music Player
The M50.2 is a “software defined” product, meaning that much of the functionality of the system is defined by software not hardware. This means that new cloud services or audio codecs can be integrated at a future date by simply updating the software of the M50.2. This software upgrade potential means that there is a software ‘roadmap’ that allows the M50.2 to live on and maintain its cutting edge functionality.

Hands-free Voice Control with Alexa
Add the BluOS Voice Skill inside the Amazon Alexa app and enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music collections, streaming services and more using a list of simple streamlined commands. Using an Echo device you can ask Alexa to play popular songs from Tidal, queue up saved playlists, adjust the volume in different rooms, or ask what’s playing in the Kitchen. No Echo device and want to try it out? No problem. Download the Amazon Alexa app, activate the skill, tap the speech bubble in the bottom drawer of the Amazon Alexa app and say anything from the list of commands.

Remarkable Performance
The hardware of the M50.2 includes the latest generation of low power, super high performance ARM processors that one can find. These have more computing power than a PC, yet run cool and do not require noisy fans. Many different digital outputs are supported in the hardware including SPDIF and HDMI.

The Choice is Yours
There is a choice of wired or wireless network connection using standard Wi-Fi protocol IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. While it is possible to stream 24/96 music wirelessly, we recommend a wired connection or local storage for HD music to avoid any possibility of dropouts. The Wi-Fi capability does offer the option of control from a smartphone or tablet with Wi-Fi, which is a fantastic way to enjoy your music collection. The M50.2 CD transport can playback or rip to internal storage, and ripping is completely automatic. The BluOS app with a network connection to the Internet, allows this music management software to fetch metadata and cover art; organized and instantly available for playback without the need for a computer. You can browse your music collection using album art or category listing, and easily create playlists on the fly.

Master Quality Authenticated
Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into every Bluesound Player that captures and delivers master quality audio to any room in your home. All Bluesound Players include a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the MQA system. The MQA logo shown in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.
