No photos of the internals. But a number of NADs specs for this unit are line item reproductions of the CSRA6000/CSRA6001 specs. See, for example, THD+N. The functions built into this chipset are ideal for producing an amp with the features of the D7050--e.g. unused amplifier outputs can be used for headphone or line level analog outputs (D7050 has one of each, and is on the low end of the available power range for this IC), and bluetooth streaming. I would wager good money this is what's inside. Is anyone else making such a good fit for this product?

NAD D 7050 Network Receiver with Bluetooth®

Well, now, it appears CSR is advertising that their direct digital technology is in the D7050, so I guess that clears it up...

Default NAD drank the Apple juice

I was just about to by the 7050. It looks like a great product. I am sad to say, unless you own an Apple product (iphone or ipad) you really can't use this amp. You need one of these devices to configure the wi-fi or adjust the subwoofer output. NAD won't support any sort of android interface. There are probably reasons for this. The obvious one is that not only does one need to drop $999 for this amp but you also need to find spare cash to buy an ipad or iphone. Seems like a mistake to me. I really want this amp but not on those terms.

My hunt for the right FDA continues.

Default Android app now available

NAD finally got around to it and made an android app available. I bought the d7050 and am enjoying it. It needed to break in over the course of a month. It sounded very good out of the box but doing even better now.

As for the app it is identical to the apple version which means not much. I suspect there's more functionality lurking in those chips than we are allowed to see.
