NAD M15 HD
Released January, 2005
The Pros:Very solid, high-quality build--made from quality materials. Modular design allows for simple upgrading, makes the M15 HD practically future proof. Four times the processing power of the original M15 including 2bit floating point DSPs and 128x oversampling ADCs.
The Cons:Lacks THX certification--something present in most similarly priced alternatives.
The NAD M15 HD is an HD audio/visual surround-sound preamplifier featuring a Sigma VXP image processor that can access over a billion colors for high-quality, realistic video reproduction. This allows it to process 1080p HDMI digital content, as well as upscale analog (s-video, component) content to HDMI.

And on the audio end, the M15 HD uses a 24-bit/192kHz DAC (with upconversion supported) and offers 4x the processing power of the original M15. Unfortunately the M15 HD is single-sided only, so it doesn’t offer balanced (XLR) inputs or outputs. There are however four sets of L/R two-channel analog inputs. Also supported is multi-room audio/videio options, and a remote that provides direct access to all system components.
