NAD AM 17 Add-on Dolby Atmos® module for M17, M15 HD, M15 HD2
Modular Design Construction, first introduced by NAD in 2006, keeps your home audio system up to date by allowing cost effective hardware upgrades as new digital technologies are introduced. NAD’s innovative MDC technology has revolutionized the way audio systems are designed, eliminating early obsolescence due to unforeseen technological advances. Built for our Masters Series M17 AV Processor, the AM 17 features Dolby Atmos®, a technology that produces a soundstage that is both enveloping and expansive. This is achieved by adding a third dimension of height to surround sound, and evolving the 7.1 channel M17 into an eleven-channel surround processor supporting the Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 sound field. Utilizing Dirac Live™, the most advanced room correction technology around, the AM 17 is the perfect component for your audio system.
AM 17 Audio Module featuring Dolby Atmos®
Dolby Atmos provides the biggest step forward in surround sound since Dolby Digital® debuted in the 1990s. Using object-based decoding and additional overhead speakers, the movie director can place objects firmly and believably in three-dimensional spaces, creating the most realistic and immersive audio experience ever developed for the home. Of course DTS:X, DTS TrueHD, HD and Neo:6 are also fully supported. Although the AM 17 slots into NAD’s M17 chassis, it can support up to a 7.1.4 Atmos speaker configuration. This is accomplished with four channels of line level outputs used to connect to additional external amplification, like NAD’s CI 940 Amplifier. The AM 17 can also be configured to use the internal amplification to create a 5.1.2 setup.
