NADThe expertise in the field of both digital and analog engineering is fully shown in this flexible and affordable amplifier.
High Res is for audio, what High Definition is for video. It is more lifelike and natural, and a much nicer listening experience. With functions such as Master Quality Authenticated (MQA), the D 3045 can reproduce the full spectrum of sound that has been encapsulated in the Studio Master, faithful and accurate reproduction. Until now, music lovers were only allowed to hear a processed version of the complete loyalty, because our delivery systems, whether it was tape, vinyl or CD, were unable to keep all information in the Studio Master recording. With high res downloads and streaming we can now enjoy the exact same experience that the artist heard in the studio when the recording was first made.
We recognize that just because there is a new, better format available, it does not mean that your current music collection will be thrown away - far from that. So we have recorded all the inputs and circuits that are needed to listen to all your current music, while we also have the opportunity to fully utilize the best high-res sources of today. In particular, the Asynchronous USB input for connecting a computer that makes high resreaming possible with the help of one of the various high-res programs such as Roon, Jriver and Amarra. Asynchronous effect uses the precision clock of the D 3045 (instead of the computer clock) to minimize Jitter and to have the USB format work ideal for audio. For the convenience of everyday life we have recorded Bluetooth wireless streaming with APTX HD, the latest 24-bit High Res version of Bluetooth that is supported by more and more phones and tablets. If you also have a Bluetooth headphone, you can also stream your non-Bluetooth sources wirelessly to your headphones or you can connect your wired headphones to enjoy the exceptional performance of our low impedance, high electricity, headphone amplifier.
