NAD VISO 1 Wireless Digital Music System (Playback 56)

AVguide
8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: When you first see NAD’s VISO 1 ($600), you might be inclined to dismiss it as “yet another iPod speaker.” This would be understandable, since the VISO 1 does indeed provide a readily visible and very nicely executed iPod dock. But the fact is that the VISO 1 is, by design, much more than a garden-variety iPod speaker: in fact, it just might be the most capable and best-sounding one-box audio system ever devised.

30 August 2012
  • Excerpt: NAD’s entry to the speaker dock market is remarkable in a number of ways. First, it is entirely digital, taking a digital signal, performing all its EQ and processing digitally, and even amplifying digitally, with only a simple HF filter circuit on the output. That doesn’t mean it’s good, of course, but it’s certainly a first,  here using digital amplification developed for the company’s latest $6000 digital amps, and operating at 35-bit resolution, so even at low...

NAD VISO 1

MacWorld
8 August 2012
  • Conclusion: This is our new favourite iPod docking system – it ticks all the boxes from simple to sophisticated. Sure, it’s a hair under $700 but there are plenty of systems that cost as much and don’t sound as good.
  • Pros: Fantastic, audiophile-quality sound; simple to use
  • Cons: Hassles changing from Bluetooth to dock

NAD Viso 1

What Hi-Fi?
9 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Given how popular iPod docks have become in recent years, it’s surprising that hi-fi specialist NAD has taken so long to launch one of its own – but its new Viso 1 system has been well worth the wait. In fact, it’s good enough to worry class-leaders such as the Geneva Model M , which is some achievement for a first-time effort.
  • Pros: Smooth, cohesive and hugely powerful sound, extensive specification, fine looks
  • Cons: Very little, save that it doesn’t include AirPlay support, unlike some rivals

NAD Viso 1 - langatonta ja kannettavaa äänentoistoa testissä

audiovideo.fi
7 February 2014
  • Summary: NAD:n esitteessa sanotaan vaatimattomasti, että Viso 1:n pointti on olla maailman paras Smart Music -laite. No, eipä ole ensimmäinen kerta kun valmistaja suitsuttuttaa omaa ratkaisuaan maailman parhaaksi. Tämän laitteen rahkeet vain riittävätkin hämmästyttävän pitkälle.
