Product 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 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.

A lot has changed since we introduced the original Masters Digital Music Suite, but the M50 has kept abreast of these changes because of the incredible power of BluOS. This proprietary music-only operating system can be remotely updated to include new features and access to new sources of music. BluOS brings all your music together, from timeless CDs to cutting edge 24/192 downloads; all are organized and easily accessed via the BluOS app.

Now, high-res music listening, multi-room wireless streaming, 24/192 storage and CD ripping can all be found in one beautiful component: the M50.2. With 4TB of internal redundant storage featuring programmable RAID backup, this is a complete music solution that does not require a computer and is not prone to the viruses and program conflicts encountered when using a multi-purpose computer for music storage and playback. The M50.2 is a noise-free component that offers state-of-the-art digital performance and requires no additional programs to buy. Just add the DAC of your choice and enjoy.
