NAD C568 CD Player
The flagship classic series CD Player deserves your attention. Yes, it has all the 'must-haves' you demand on a player of this calibre. What makes the difference is that NAD have included close tolerance components and these easily justify the higher price-tag.
NAD CD Players and including the C568, have always delivered a smooth and very palatable sound more reminiscent of some of the finest "analogue" sounds. The C568 enjoys the NAD's signature CD sound at the usual great price.
The C568 CD Player takes the superb performance of the 5-star rated predecessor C546BEE and has raised the performance bar to the next level. Every aspect of sonic performance is enhanced and refined making the C568 the ideal companion to any amplifier or any system in need of a performance upgrade.
This CD player also delivers a new, fresh and more refined look than its predecessor. However, more importantly its new circuit layout and updated components, including metal film resistors and polypropylene capacitors in key areas, help squeeze even more performance from your treasured CD library. You'll experience even greater bass extension and dynamics, while enjoying enhanced sound staging. NAD even gave it a front-panel USB port so you can play MP3s from a portable thumb drive through your home audio system with ease.
Updated Circuits Further Enhance Listening: With the worldwide acclaim and numerous awards for the C546BEE’s outstanding performance and value, it is fair to ask why NAD would “mess with success”. However, NAD has never rested on its laurels and development is ongoing at the NAD Lab. NAD launch new models when they feel a significant improvement has been achieved. Such is the case with the C568. Besides more refined cosmetics, the circuit layout and component choices have been extensively updated. The cumulative effect of these changes is dramatic, improving low frequency slam and extension, while maintaining the pace and timing for which their CD players are so lavishly praised. Image depth and scale are further enhanced while retaining the timbral accuracy and lucid harmonic structure of its predecessor.
Versatile Performance: Enjoy playback from a variety of discs, ranging from regular CDs to computer burnt CD-Rs filled with MP3 and WMA files. If your CD library includes albums with CD Text, the NAD C568 can show information such as song titles directly on its front-panel display. The full-function remote gives you command of the basics like "play" and "stop," plus access to repeat, random, and program modes from the comfort of your favourite chair.
Digital Outputs: Not all digital outputs are created equal, so the friends at NAD have paid special attention to such details. The coaxial output is buffered and isolated by a 75 ohm matching transformer thus isolating the converter to ensure perfect matching. This reduces jitter that could otherwise distort the digital data stream. An optical Toslink output is also provided allowing connection to supported devices.
You'll enjoy playback from a variety of discs, ranging from regular CDs to home-burned CD-Rs filled with MP3 and WMA files. If your CD library includes albums with CD Text, the C568 can show information such as song titles directly on its front-panel display. The full-function remote gives you command of the basics like "play" and "stop," plus access to repeat, random, and program modes from the comfort of your favorite chair. Great sounding unit, simple and easy to use, compact and stylish. Exactly what you would expect from NAD. Recommended!
