NAD M17 V2i, surround yourself with perfection

The M17 V2i performs the enviable task of representing NAD's best surround sound performance.

Endless possibilities await thanks to the M17 V2i's most impressive feature, Modular Design Construction (MDC), NAD's proven method for preventing premature obsolescence.

Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X and DTS-HD™ Master Audio combine with Dirac Live® Room Correction to deliver hyperrealism that captures all dimensions of cinema.

Add in bit-perfect 4K UHD video processing and the M17i V2i delivers the most accurate sound and picture experience you've ever had. The M17 V2i is the cutting edge in flexibility and next-generation digital technology.

100% Surround

The M17 V2i offers full HDMI video switching and surround sound decoding along with 11.1 balanced outputs.

Brimming with a full complement of sophisticated features such as Dolby TrueHD high-resolution lossless surround sound formats, DTS:X and DTS-HD Masters audio decoding, and now object-based audio with Dolby Atmos, the M17 provides the most high levels of performance.

The surround sound mode of the source material is automatically detected via the M17 V2i's digital inputs, and the most advanced form of decoding is activated, depending on your settings.

Conversion of the encoded digital bitstream is performed with high-resolution, extremely linear D/A converters, carefully selected for their performance capabilities.

Flexible configuration

The latest HDMI features, including HDCP 2.2, 4:4:4 color resolution, high dynamic range video support, and CEC/ARC, are all included. Digital inputs and outputs are available in coaxial and optical formats to facilitate the connection of all digital sources.

Digital inputs are converted to analog for use in Zone 2, and you can choose to convert unused tape outputs for use in Zone 3 and Zone 4 with independent source selection and volume control. With BluOS® we've also made it easier to add more speakers to listen to music in additional rooms.

Infrared repeaters, 12V triggers to automatically turn amplifiers on and off, and an RS-232 data port make it easy to connect to highly advanced automated control systems, such as Crestron and Control4.

Thoughtful features such as discreet on/off codes, direct access to inputs and FM station presets make it easy to integrate the M17 V2i into elaborate remote control systems.

MQA Quality

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into every BluOS Enabled amplifier to capture and deliver MQA music to your speakers in the purest quality.

All BluOS Enabled players and systems include a powerful audio decoder and renderer for the millions of MQA-encoded songs.

The MQA logo displayed in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.

The world's most sophisticated digital room correction system

Dirac Live® and its powerful room correction software is integrated into the M17 V2i, including its own calibrated measurement microphone and Dirac Live Pro.

Advanced users can create the perfect listening environment that corrects for both timing and sound colorations, including the ability to create custom target curves for room response and the option to choose from a variety of third-party calibrated microphones.

The BluOS® advantage

A unique among high-end AV processors, BluOS®, the advanced operating system and music management software shared with NAD's sister brand, Bluesound, is included in the M17 V2i.

When connected to the Internet via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, the M17 V2i has access to thousands of Internet radio stations and more than a dozen high-quality music services, including Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer and many more.

With full support for Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology, the M17 V2i has the highest resolution audio performance available combined with the highest definition video performance.
