Life without labor is guilt; Labor without art is brutality.

The Masters Series concept is to produce the highest expression of NAD engineering and performance. For the M5 CD player NAD dropped in an audio stage taken directly from the M3. They went to the very top shelf for the M5's audio DACs, which have about 7-8 dB better noise performance, and the audio stage has a separate linear power supply.
The M3 dual-mono integrated amplifier, one of the NAD's new 'Masters Series' products. It contains seven line inputs (including one balanced XLR).
Hi-Res audio player. Supports virtually every audio format and sample rate on the planet, including WAV, FLAC, AIFF and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format. The internal 1TB hard drive makes it self-supplied audio component.
This is a limited edition of Mirage Omnipolar floor speakers. Frequency range is 28Hz to 22kHz, room efficiency is quoted at 90dB and impedance, 4-6ohms. Probably it is the weakest link in the whole set, but it still an ideal choice for the living room.Perfectly balanced - there're no harshly-etched sonic projections, the midrange and treble melding fluidly into the picture. Yet, instruments and vocals in these spectrums are clearly placed towards the forefront of the soundstage, with layering detail and texture obvious in the background, but never intrusive.
The Monster Power HTS 1600 PowerCenter features exclusive Monster T2 technology. T2 is an active electronic microprocessor-controlled circuit that sits in front of the surge protection circuitry in select Monster Power products. T2 monitors the line, neutral and ground lines and automatically disconnects the PowerCenter from the AC power line when a long duration low-voltage sag or high-voltage swell occurs (continuous voltage below 70Vrms or above 132Vrms).When the voltage sags or swells to these potentially damaging levels, ultra-fast T2 auto-disconnect protection circuitry shuts down the Monster PowerCenter for 15 seconds. When the under-voltage or over-voltage condition returns to normal, T2 reconnects the PowerCenter to full operation after 15 seconds. If the fault condition does not clear, the T2 comparator circuit keeps the unit shut down.
