Is the NAD M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier a Keeper or Too Good to be True?

Is the NAD M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier a Keeper or Too Good to be True?

The M10 appears to be a proverbial Swiss Army knife. The onboard touchscreen is beautiful and takes up the entire front of the unit. The M10, however, begs to be front and center on a pedestal I further intuited setting up the Dirac Live Room Correction using the included microphone. I love this feature, and it made me feel like the listening sweet spot is really dialed in with so many measuring points.

The sound is amazing. I tested out a few MQA files from TIDAL, and they all blew me away. Other users have commented on the M10's ability to expose flaws in the content, and I found this to be the case. Even at low levels, the sound is full and round with a sense that you're in the music If you have a single room and a nice set of speakers, the NAD M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier checks a lot of boxes. You'd need three to four separate components to accomplish what this streamer/amplifier does in a single box. You get what you pay for. I've searched for years trying to find a single component that can deliver on my 2-channel high resolution audio addiction, and I finally found it. The M10 is a keeper!
