Aside from offering outstanding sound for the dollar, NAD makes hardware-upgradeable equipment. Sure, software updates are common and NAD equipment has those. But, such updates usually address functionality rather than fidelity. When such updates do address fidelity the hardware can be a limiting factor. Consider the emergence of HDMI cables. Lots of folks can’t connect HDMI cables to their old stereo equipment. NAD offers stereo equipment with changeable cards–like a computer tower– including cards that accept HDMI audio and video.
NAD makes receivers, preamps, amps, integrated amps, CD players, internet music players, a turntable, headphones, and wireless music systems.
Pure Fidelity’s founder, John Stratton, combines the best attributes of high mass, low mass, and acoustic suspension turntables. Every key design decision is based on hours of listening through familiar reference systems with familiar records.

The turntable here on display regularly fleshes out the sound the way our reference digital system (i.e. Roon Nucleus, Bryston BR-20 DAC/Pre) seldom does.
