SOLD: FS: NAD M51 DAC


Recommended Posts

Item: NAD M51 DAC
Location: Sydney east
Price:  $700
Item Condition: As new
Reason for selling: Not needed
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Post - Bank deposit
Extra Info: I bought this last weekend to try out its digital pre-amp while my Boulder is getting serviced. Not a fair fight, but the M51 actually does pretty well—for anyone who shares my curiosity. 

 

I collected this from a very nice SNA member on the north shore; I've included his original ad below. This unit presents as new and functions flawlessly.

 

As to its capabilities as a DAC, here are my brief listening impressions. The M51 sounds fairly neutral with a 'smooth flow' in the mids and detail and clarity up top. Transients with solo piano are natural; rock music is dynamic with enough bass heft and excellent vocals; complex orchestral music is easy to follow due to a very well-organised soundstage. Overall, I'd describe the M51 as authoritative in its musical delivery.

Item: NAD M51 DAC
Location: Sydney
Price: $740
Item Condition: like new
Reason for selling: downsizing to active monitor set up
Extra Info:
  Well reviewed DAC. At this price IMHO this is a great sounding, fully featured DAC. 

 

The technical aspects are worth looking up, if you are reading then maybe you are aware.
 

It has pre-amp capability and HDMI  connectivity. Very clear easy to read display. Trigger on socket.

 

I bought this new from Len Wallis Audio and have carefully repacked it in all original packaging including the double boxing. 


Pick up preferred.
