BluOS Makes the M10 Something Special

BluOS is the most advanced network streaming and multiroom operating system available. Part of a growing ecosystem of compatible products, BluOS tightly integrates hardware and software for an unbeatable user experience. The only wireless High Resolution multiroom system available today, BluOS supports the new standard for High Res streaming, Master Quality Authenticated (MQA). BluOS also supports over 15 free and paid subscription services as well as supporting locally stored music libraries. Adding additional rooms is easy and affordable using Bluesound all-in-one speakers, or you can add premium components from NAD, DALI, and others to provide amazing sound throughout your home.

Understated Elegance

With Industrial Design by award-winning design firm DF-ID, the M10 takes a minimalist theme to a new level of elegance. The svelte proportions are enhanced by authentic materials; solid brushed aluminum, and smooth glass. Completely operable by Wi-Fi con­nection to the BluOS App, you never need to touch the M10. But as you approach the M10, the high resolution touch screen beckons as the graphic changes from ‘now playing’ to ‘control panel,’ allowing many operations directly from the front panel without opening an app. It also shows what’s playing and what is next in the Play Que.

Unmatched Performance

The M10 uses NAD’s most sophisticated Masters Series technology to create a sonic performance that is second to none. HybridDigital amplification featuring the remarkable HypeX nCore amplification stage offers state-of-the-art performance along with the ability to drive any loudspeaker. Highly efficient and remarkably powerful, the M10 can render even the most subtle musical details with ‘you are there’ realism. Effortless dynamics and a complete absence of electronic noise are hallmarks of this advanced technology.

Easy Smart Home Integration

NAD has spent considerable effort to make the M10 fully compatible with all the leading smart home systems from leading companies like Apple, Crestron, Control4, Lutron, and many others. This means that along with your lighting, shades, HVAC, and security, you can seamlessly control your BluOS multiroom music system from a common interface. All NAD integrations are certified for reliable operation. There are also custom BluOS Apps for iOS and Android tablets and phones, as well as desktop control from Windows and Apple OS.

Music Meant to Be Heard, Not Seen

The NAD Masters M10 represents a new kind of High End Audio system that is luxurious and smart, but very discreet. It can perform the same function that required a rack full of components just a few short years ago and in many ways is superior. The ele­gant form factor takes up very little space and can even be hidden away. But the beautiful design and colorful display will encourage you to place the M10 front and center!

Hands-Free Voice Control with Alexa

Add the BluOS Voice Skill inside the Amazon Alexa app and enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music collections, streaming services, and more using a list of simple streamlined commands. Using an Echo device you can ask Alexa to play popular songs from Tidal, queue up saved playlists, adjust the volume in different rooms, or ask what’s playing in the Kitchen. No Echo device and want to try it out? No problem. Download the Amazon Alexa app, activate the skill, tap the speech bubble in the bottom drawer of the Amazon Alexa app, and say anything from the list of commands.

Great way to stream MQA and HiRes music
Took a chance with this and am pleased. Have had much more expensive “hi-fi” components in the past but circumstances have dictated a more reasonable approach and to be able to play all my CD’s that I have on my Sony HAP Hi-Res player as well as stream hi-res and MQA songs make this ideal for just listening and enjoying anything at any time . Perhaps a turntable next, lol
This review was collected as part of a promotion
Nice analog meter effect
Great display
Sounds fine analog input
Even CD streams are palatable
Never have to wonder what’s this song?

Has anybody tried it with ATC speakers? How is the sound compared with any of Naim Uniti models?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2019
  While I've not listened to it with that brand speaker or compared it to the Naim side-by-side, the M10 is an astonishing sounding piece.
