NAD IN­TROS C 538 CLAS­SIC CD PLAYER FOR DISC EN­THU­SI­ASTS

SoundMag - - News - WRIT­TEN BY STEVE MAY

NAD Elec­tron­ics has in­tro­duced a new, ded­i­cated CD player. The C 538 fea­tures the lat­est gen­er­a­tion Wolf­son High Spec 24/192 DAC, plus a high pre­ci­sion clock for min­i­mal dig­i­tal jit­ter per­for­mance. Other man­u­fac­tur­ers may have ceased pro­duc­tion of CD play­ers, but NAD be­lieves there is a strong re­place­ment mar­ket for disc en­thu­si­asts - and it’s al­most cer­tainly right.

De­sign wise, the deck em­bod­ies the clean clas­sic lines so fa­mil­iar from NAD. There’s no high­fa­lutin High Res Au­dio sup­port, but the C 538 will play MP3 and WMA play­back from CD-R/CD-RW discs. Con­nec­tiv­ity in­cludes stereo ana­logue phonos, plus coax­ial and op­ti­cal dig­i­tal out­puts. Con­trol func­tion­al­ity is stan­dard; there’s no net­work func­tion­al­ity.

“Although mu­sic down­loads and stream­ing con­tinue to grow in pop­u­lar­ity, CDs are still the pri­mary lis­ten­ing source for mil­lions of peo­ple around the world” says Greg Stid­sen, NAD’s Di­rec­tor of Tech­nol­ogy and Prod­uct Plan­ning. “NAD con­tin­ues to in­no­vate and de­velop its CD play­ers to get im­proved per­for­mance while keep­ing prices af­ford­able. So, whether you are cre­at­ing your first home sys­tem, or up­grad­ing your cur­rent CD player, mu­sic lovers should choose one like the C 538 that de­liv­ers high qual­ity sound.”

Aus­tralian pric­ing and avail­abil­ity to be con­firmed.
