Thank you for visiting The Audio Tailor.

We’re Stuart, Gabby, Nathan and Vaughan. It’s a pleasure to have you here!

The first question we get from customers usually starts with, “What’s the difference between...”

When you’re shopping for new speakers, a turntable, or even thinking of putting together that home theatre of your teenage dreams - you’ll likely be faced with stacks of comparisons.

Why would I buy the Bluesound Pulse 2i when the Flex 2i is half the price?

Is NAD the best?

Should I wait for a sale? Or get this now? What will I be missing out on when the new model comes out next year?

Endless questions. Lots of FOMO. Loads of hmm-ing and ha-ing.

And there SHOULD be.

Because you don’t go to a Hi-Fi store and drop $2000, $3000, or $15000 on something you're not 100%, positively, secure-in-your heart sure of.

It’s a lot of hard-earned money on the line.

Imagine doing hours of your own research. Reading up the suppliers’ websites, taking notes from Hi Fi blogs, categorizing the differing opinions as you trawl r/audiophile. You know what you’re getting. You’ve narrowed the online stores down to the final five. You’ve checked and re-checked that you’re getting the best deal. You’re sure you’re not getting ripped off by shipping.

You hit the “Checkout” button. Momentary relief!

That is...

Until your speakers haven’t arrived by the estimated delivery date and you have yet to hear a peep about its progress.

Until your new turntable arrives with a crack in the dust cover.

Until your long-awaited amp set-up fails to deliver the kind of sound you had in mind. Now you’re not even sure if you got the right one anymore, or how to troubleshoot it.

What could possibly be worse?

What about: No after-sales service. No phone number to call. And no one responding to your tickets.

Not to mention the hundreds of man hours you’ve already lost on reading layman opinions from the likes of Graham H. from Melbourne and Sarah D. from Perth; dutifully scrolling through pages and pages of reviews. Torturing yourself by looking for all the ones with less than 3 stars... when you could have been sitting back and diving into a whole new world of immersive sound and deliciously satisfying body vibrations.

Would it make sense to go to audio specialists that know brands, specs, and installation like the back of their hands?

Should you spend less time on weighing up pros and cons and more time enjoying good music?

Want to get the absolute best home theatre for your budget and surroundings without the weight of 100++ brand offerings bogging you down?

We like to think so!

And that’s why we’re here. Two things to know about us:

Thing 1: We were voted Australia’s 2021 Hi Fi Retailer of the Year (Yay! And THANK YOU!)

Thing 2: This is purely because we are sound specialists and audioheads - NOT salesmen.

We got into this business because we genuinely love audio and because we realized there was a lot of faceless dropshipping in the HiFi industry - and not enough expertise out there. People who keep coming back to us do so because they’re getting attention to detail and individualized solutions that they can’t find elsewhere.

Our clients don’t need to worry about budget, brand name, or size.

All they need to worry about, is talking to us.

Because, when you come to us, you’re in for a conversation.

We want to know the picture in your head.

That final portrait of you back from the flea market with Pearl Jam’s Ten, eager to place it gently upon a turntable you haven’t quite decided on yet.

A summer barbeque in your garden with the boys. Having a yarn around a beer-filled cooler while appreciating the crisp, clear, quality of sound streaming through the open doors of your listening space.

The kids having mates over - quiet for once - immersed in a good movie, lights out, in the comfort of the home theatre that is your pride and joy. “I wish we had one of these at our place!”

Once we know precisely what your ultimate scenario looks like, we’ll want to know what you’re working with.

What kind of budget have you set aside?

What’s the existing set-up look like?

How big is the listening room you have in mind?

How much ambient light is coming in?

Are you running drywall or wood panelling? Carpet or hardwood?

What about room resonance and reflection?

No idea what we’re going on about? No worries. We intend to talk you through all that. Our aim is that you get the absolute best sound system for your home, at a price point you’re happy with, and an aesthetic you can’t help but want to show off.

To get to this end goal, an unhealthy interest in all things audio simply isn’t enough. That’s why we spend countless hours behind the scenes sourcing products from only the most reliable brands and trustworthy suppliers - regardless of their branding and marketing.

We don’t rely on them to tell us what’s good about their equipment. We’ve developed our own proactive testing process to judge what’s what. So you get hands-on knowledge every single time. Coupled with our tight networks and stable supply chain meticulously refined over the years, we strive to ensure that the experience you get at The Audio Tailor is personal, seamless, and painless.

Personal, because it’s uniquely you in musicality, design, and taste. Your options are hand picked by us from amongst some of the world’s biggest, best, and most dependable brands.

Seamless, because we’re only small. You get one of us. Not one of dozens of salesmen milling about the place, working for commission and pushing the most expensive products.

Painless, because we don’t recommend anything until we’re clear about your needs. We follow up with you to make sure everything’s arrived in one piece. For us, the transaction isn’t over until your equipment is safely installed and fully satisfying.

TL;DR

Some of the big things we feel are missing in the HiFi world are:

  • The need for expertise before, during, and after the sale
  • A vast wealth of comparative knowledge, and
  • A commitment to end-to-end service.

At The Audio Tailor, we hope we’ve made it clear that service doesn’t shut off when a problem pops up. It’s an opportunity to tighten the ship we run, bolster our 5-star reputation, and most importantly - make someone’s day.

Hi! We see you’ve actually made it to the end of this page. Love it!

We’d like to end this by giving a shout out to all the enthusiasts and audiophiles we’ve been fortunate enough to work with over the years. It has been a privilege to share our desire, passion, and journey for the purest sound and finest entertainment solutions for your homes and businesses.

Thank you to all our customers - past, present, and future - for helping us chase after something above the ordinary.

To make your audio dreams come true - call, email, or hop on down to our Brisbane store.

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Product Description

Combining a sophisticated music streamer and powerful 100-watt-per-channel amplifier in one super-stylish component, the NAD M10 V2 BluOS Streaming Amplifier is made for the way people listen to music today. The M10 V2 is based on the acclaimed BluOS multi-room music platform, which has integrated support for dozens of streaming services. You can queue up any music you want using the intuitive BluOS app, and hear it in glorious high fidelity through your favourite loudspeakers.

Just Add (More) Speakers

Like the original M10, the M10 V2 exemplifies the “Just Add Speakers” revolution in hi-fi. But it takes that revolution a giant step further. Along with audiophile-grade speaker terminals, it has two independent subwoofer jacks, whose output settings are adjustable from the BluOS app. The M10 V2 adds Dolby Digital surround-sound decoding. Home-theatre fans can configure a pair of BluOS surround-enabled wireless speakers or amplifiers to play the surround channels, while the main speakers handle the front channels, so that the M10 V2 serves as the hub of a 4.1- or 4.2-channel Dolby Digital surround setup. The M10 V2 transmits the rear channels wirelessly, with very low latency, so you don’t have to run wires around your room to connect the surround speakers.

>Complete Control

There are many ways to operate the M10 V2. Use the BluOS app on a smartphone, tablet, or computer to cue up music from your favourite streaming service, or music stored on USB and network drives. Choose some songs from the Spotify or Tidal app on your computer or smart device, then shift playback to the M10 V2. Stream music to the M10 V2 from an iPhone, iPad, or iTunes library via AirPlay 2. Select music by voice using the Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, or Google Assistant voice protocol. The M10 V2 is Roon Ready, so you can stream music from a Roon Core server. The M10 V2 can be integrated into Apple, Control4, Crestron, Lutron, and other home-automation systems, so you can control music playback, along with other home systems like lighting, shades, HVAC, and security. Use the supplied remote control to adjust volume, skip tracks, and activate preset commands. Or choose tracks, select sources, and adjust volume and other settings from the M10 V2’s touchscreen. In addition, the M10 V2 can learn commands from your favourite IR remote control.

The Power and the Glory

Created by the award-winning design firm DF-ID, the M10 V2 features a solid brushed aluminium chassis, Gorilla Glass top and front panels, and a bright 7″ touchscreen, with purer colours and wider viewing angle than the screen on the original M10. Behind that gorgeous display lies a sonic powerhouse that delivers thrilling dynamics and exquisite detail. Based on the renowned nCore technology, the M10 V2’s Hybrid Digital amplifier is conservatively rated at 100 watts per channel. Its updated gain algorithms allow higher output levels with inefficient speakers. The subwoofer outputs also have higher gain, allowing for a wider range of subwoofer-main speaker combinations. The ESS Sabre DAC can accept streams up to 24-bit/192kHz. The M10 V2 can stream lossless and high-resolution audio from services such as Deezer, Qobuz, and Tidal; and has full MQA hardware decoding and rendering capability.

Room-Friendly

With its compact form factor and elegant minimalist design, the M10 V2 will blend beautifully into any living space—not just visually, but sonically as well. Like the original M10, the M10 V2 has built-in Dirac Live Room Correction. Using the supplied calibrated microphone and intuitive Dirac app, you can correct peaks and dips caused by your room’s acoustics, up to 500Hz (a full-bandwidth version is available through Dirac). That way, you hear movie soundtracks and music as they were meant to be heard, free of anomalies caused by the listening environment. The M10 V2 can store up to five Dirac profiles for different listening positions, surround setups, or room conditions—for example whether the drapes are open or closed.

Thoroughly Modern

The M10 V2 is the perfect amplifier for the Internet era. With the user-friendly BluOS app, you can play music from your favourite streaming service, as well as locally stored music. But the M10 V2 also plays nicely with external components. It has RCA analogue, optical and coaxial digital, HDMI eARC, and USB Type A inputs, for connecting disc players, game consoles, external drives, media adapters, flat-panel displays, and other components. It also features two-way apt-X HD Bluetooth. With the M10 V2, you can listen through wireless headphones, stereo loudspeakers, a surround-sound setup, or up to 63 BluOS-capable wireless speakers arrayed throughout your home. Hi-fi doesn’t get more modern than this.

Brand Description

Welcome to The Audio Tailor’s NAD range.

If you’re looking for a turntable for your records or a good receiver to connect your input and output devices, then we’ve got a couple of sweet selections here.

But, if you need an amplifier, then don’t move. You’re definitely in the right place.

We have quite possibly the most comprehensive selection of NAD amplifiers in Australia at brilliant prices.

Know exactly what you want? Then head straight over to our list of pre, phono, power, integrated, or multi-channel amplifiers.

If you’re still trying to sort out which one is which, and deciding on what your hi-fi set-up needs; then you may have already gone down the Google and Reddit research route.

These are great places to start. By now, you most likely have an idea that NAD is a brand worth checking out for a few main reasons. Its pure, clean, powerful sound production is a given. Award-winning technology and design released year after year over the last five decades isn’t anything to overlook either.

You’ve skimmed through dozens of articles about the huge range of amps to suit all usages. You’ve whistled at the most technical “I finally found the perfect music set-up” blogs sporting two-box whozits and multi-channel whatzits. You might’ve weighed up just going for the easiest integrated plug-and-play solutions. Maybe you’ve taken it one step further and even watched the Youtube reviews comparing future upgrade pathways if you get that thing or the other one.

Either way, here you are.

At the core of it, NAD is a brand that prides itself on offering a kind of quality never seen before at its price point. Before NAD came on the scene, we audiophiles had The Super Expensive Good Stuff and the Mass Produced Knock-Offs, which while not the stuff dreams are made of, at least could be purchased without taking out a bank loan. To be honest, NAD has opened up a whole new world for seekers of unadulterated sound. One that we don’t need to sell a kidney for, which is lowkey, a huge plus.

If you’re still not 100% certain on what works best for you, there are two roads to take at this stage depending on the kind of person you are:

You’re an “After” person: Of the she’ll-be-right variety. Then, scroll on down and pick out whatever you need. Checkout is a breeze, and we’re always available on email or through the phone on 1300 308 711 if you have any questions while you’re setting up, or even after you’ve had it a while. We’re here in case anything goes wrong or could’ve gone better. We’ll do our best to sort you out if, and when you need us.

You’re a “Before” person: If you enjoy peace of mind before handing over your hard-earned cash, then sound advice and years of technical expertise is what you’re looking for. In that case, pop on by our Brisbane store and come talk to us in person. That’s the best way to ask a bunch of questions, look at the actual products, and listen to some of it in action. Not a people person? No worries. We man our email inbox regularly and are always available over the phone on 1300 308 711. Give us a yell before purchasing. We’ll help ensure you’re making the best choice out of tons of available NAD options. 

Once we get you set up with the perfect amplifier for your set-up, then it’s time to tackle your wireless speaker game. Because, what’s the point of getting that crisp, clear sound if you can’t fill every nook and cranny of your living space with it? See you over at the best bluesound in Australia!
