NAD Elec­tron­ics has re­leased a new, high-per­for­mance, low-cost CD player, the NAD C538, that uses the lat­est gen­er­a­tion Wolf­son 24/192 DAC. NAD says its C538 has been en­gi­neered for mu­si­cal­ity, sim­plic­ity and value. ‘ Though mu­sic down­loads and stream­ing con­tinue to grow in pop­u­lar­ity, many con­sumers have a vast col­lec­tion of CDs and need a qual­ity player to en­joy them,’ said Ge­off Matthews, of Con­voy, which dis­trib­utes NAD in Aus­tralia. ‘ The ar­rival of the C 538 is par­tic­u­larly wel­come be­cause many man­u­fac­tur­ers have stopped build­ing CD play­ers, which has meant that de­mand amongst ex­ist­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers has in­creased, and since NAD has been at the fore­front of dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy for sev­eral decades, it’s in an ideal po­si­tion to sat­isfy this de­mand.’

In ad­di­tion to play­ing back or­di­nary CDs, the NAD C 538 can also play back CD-R/CD-RW discs with home-burned MP3 and WMA files, so those who want to use these for­mats can fit up to ten hours of mu­sic on a sin­gle disc. ‘ This is per­fect for party mixes or for am­bi­ent lis­ten­ing,’ Matthews told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine. ‘ And when you play back CDs, you can be guar­an­teed of su­pe­rior au­dio per­for­mance thanks to the high-pre­ci­sion clock de­liv­er­ing the low­est pos­si­ble dig­i­tal jit­ter per­for­mance and the lat­est-gen­er­a­tion high-spec Wolf­son 24/192 DAC.’

Play­back fea­tures on the NAD C 538 in­clude ran­dom play and pro­grammed play, and well as re­peat track, pro­gram, disc, and A–B func­tions. In ad­di­tion to the stan­dard stereo ana­logue out­puts, the NAD C 538 also has coax­ial dig­i­tal and op­ti­cal dig­i­tal out­puts.
