The NAD VISO 1 is inspired design married to some of the most sophisticated audio technologies in the world today. The result is a new way to experience your mobile music collection. With the VISO 1, every detail of your digital music is clear with all the warmth and emotion of a live musical performance. This immersive musical experience must be heard to be believed.
Easy as 1, 2, 3
The VISO 1 is compact and easy to enjoy right out of the box. No messy wires or complicated setup. The innovative precision 'ring' design allows you to operate your iPod in a completely natural way, without compromising Apple's well thought out ergonomics. After plugging in the power cord to a household outlet, simply dock your iPod in the rotating cradle, select your music, and press 'play'. The supplied remote handset allows you to start or stop the music, skip tracks and adjust the volume from your listening chair.
Integrated Bluetooth reception allows any Bluetooth enabled device to seamlessly integrate with the VISO 1. This allows wireless integration of the iTouch, iPhone and iPad, as well as Android and Windows-based smartphones and tablets. Virtually any handheld device can stream music to VISO 1 for great convenience.
VISO 1 not only will play louder than other iPod docks, it plays with an uncanny smoothness and accuracy. Music seems to float in 3 dimensional space with vocals and instruments clearly defined and true to life. You've never heard your iPod sound this good!
NAD Direct Digital
VISO 1 includes NAD's Direct Digital technology first introduced in our groundbreaking top-of-the-line Masters Series M2 Direct Digital Amplifier. The VISO 1 offers two major advances in iPod music systems: it plays the music stored on your iPod in its native digital form, completely bypassing the limiting audio circuits of the iPod, and the processing power inherent in Direct Digital technology allows the speakers to be optimized for sonic performance. Renowned speaker designer Paul Barton (on loan from our sister company, PSB Speakers) used Direct Digital's remarkable set of tools to give the VISO 1 the same musical authenticity and acoustic performance that has set his award-winning designs apart from all others over the last 40 years.
The VISO 1 will be available in Australia ($699) and New Zealand ($999) from December 2011.
