    Hi Thomas

    The answer to all your questions is YES... with one clarification - if you are looking to add 1 FLEX it will playback what the M10 is playing when connected to your TV which is fine for another room, but if you are looking to create a Home Theatre Experience you will need a second PULSE FLEX to act as rear speakers to your NAD M10v2 as the front speakers.

    Thank you for the information. For now at least, I'm just looking to put the PulseFlex speaker in the breakfast area so we don't have to turn up the main speakers as much.

    Eventually, I may add another PF speaker for surround capabilities!

    ...or what we jokingly call 1980s style Multiroom here at The Support Crew...

    One more question: would the Bluesound Powernode perform the same functions as the M10 for what I asked earlier?

    My floor speakers are Focal 826s. The current Cambridge  amp pushes 60 watts per channel;  hopefully the Powernode @ 80 watts would perform even better.

    ...less watts than the M10v2 and a few less inputs. The POWERDNODE still supports HDMI though. You will not get DIRAC Room Calibration in the POWERNODE as this limited to NAD products.

    More inputs really wouldn't be an issue, as my current system consists of a Sony TV, Cambridge Audio receiver, & Vault 2i streamer. If I go for the NAD or Powernode, that will eliminate the Cambridge and Vault.

    I read where the V2 of the M10 has a smoother volume. I find that the remotes sometimes ramp up / down the volume greatly with a minimal push of the control. Hopefully this would not be the case with the M10?

     

    Just to ask, how  would  the NAD c770 work with my system?

    The new NAD C700 will function much like a POWERNODE but does not have the ability to be part of a Home Theatre Group if you decide to do so later. Unlike the NAD M10v2, it does not offer DIRAC room calibration.

    Last question (promise):

    I mentioned that I don't like the volume to ramp up or down very quickly with a small press of the remote's button.

    The M10v2 claims there is a smoother more accurate control. Does that apply to the C770 and/or the Powernode too?

    Hi Thomas

    All BluOS Players use a very similar algorithm for controlling volume but will vary based on the amplifier used. This is really a subjective question but we think you will be satisfied with all three models

    Sorry, I lied about no more questions.

    Do all of these 3 units allow the input to default to the HDMI ARC  so when I turn on the TV, the input is set to that?

    All support CEC in HDMI ARC

    That wasn't what I asked - can any or all default to HDMI inputs so when I turn on a TV, I don't have to choose the input

    Yes - All support CEC in HDMI ARC so provided your TV supports CEC over HDMI ARC - the TV will interrupt and take over control. Most TVs sold today do...

    Let me chime in from a user's perspective:

    There is a "auto-sense" setting on the inputs.  If it is turned on, whenever a signal is detected on an input, the source on the BluOS device will switch to this source.

    In other words, when you turn on the TV, a signal is sent to the corresponding input, the BluOS device will react to it by switching to the TV input automatically, without any user involvements.

    Ok, thanks. I believe I understand now.
