NAD M23 Hybrid Digital Stereo Power Amp Launched
NAD Electronics M23 Hybrid Digital stereo amplifier promises to deliver state-of-the-art engineering at an affordable price.
NAD's M23 is powered by the same Purifi Eigentakt Class-D amplification technology first introduced in the company's upper tier M33 BluOS Streaming Amplifier. Therefore, this unit features what NAD describes as a “once-in-a-decade amplification innovation” that all-but-eliminates distortion and promises extraordinarily low noise.
So, NAD is pretty confident, then? Looking at the spec sheet, the M23 does have plenty going for it. Firstly, boasting “a minimum of 200W per channel” of continuous power into 8 ohms and “amazing reserves of dynamic power at lower impedances”. Additionally, we see that two M23 amplifiers can be paired together as mono amps with an option to combine the M23 with the M33 for 700W per channel (in bridged mode).
Around the back of the M23, you'll find RCA and XLR balanced inputs, a switch for bridge mode, three selectable gain levels, and a 12v trigger.
All of that is wrapped up in attractive all-alloy casework that's as practical as it is good-looking, with the rigid panels and magnetic iso-point feet providing a solid foundation for the multi-layer circuit boards and intricate internal construction.
The NAD M23 is expected in Australia from March 2022 and will sell at $5,999 AUD
