MDC - Modular Design Construction


MDC is NAD's Modular Design Construction. It gives many of their new amplifiers the ability to be upgraded by adding a module to increase functionality; hence the name.


From NAD's Website:


"A Modular Design Construction places all input circuitry on easily removable plug-in cards. This superior construction technique protects your investment via the capability for easy upgrades, fast and easy service and improved sound and video performance due to the neat internal layout. For example, if and when the Dolby True HD and/or DTS Master lossless multi-channel formats become fully useful standards of high-definition discs or other recordings, NAD will make upgraded processing available. With modular construction (and since HDMI 1.3 pipelines are already in place), this can be practical and affordable."
