NAD C568 Compact Disc Player

Douglas HiFi NAD C568 Notes : Many people are still after a good, musical sounding CD player that is reliable but also has a USB port to read off USB drives. The NAD C568 CD Player is engineered to a level normally reserved for far more expensive players. NAD is upholding a long tradition of delivering high quality, good value HiFi products that are easy to use, look good and sound musical. The C568 improves the sound over the C538 by using better Op-Amps as well as higher grade internal components. The coaxial digital output is transformer isolated for improved connection to external DACs. This is the CD player to go for if you listen to CDs as one of the main sources of music or you need a CD transport to connect to an external DAC.

It’s All About the Detail

In the case of the NAD C 568, careful attention has been paid so that best use of the ever-increasing number of products now available with digital inputs (outboard D to A converters, AV Receivers, etc) can be made. The coaxial output is buffered and isolated by a transformer from the converter itself, and the output impedance has been carefully tailored to produce a precise 75 Ohm impedance to ensure perfect matching. This attention to detail reduces the timing errors (jitter) that could otherwise distort the digital data stream. An optical Toslink output is also provided allowing connection to devices that only provide this option.

The 24-bit high resolution Wolfson WM8741 DAC chip of the C 568 was chosen for its excellent low-level linearity and detail retrieving capabilities. Furthermore, a high precision Crystek Clock Module reduces digital jitter to unprecedented levels, making the C 568 a great platform for adding an exotic high-end DAC. Metal film resistors and polypropylene capacitors are also used in key areas to ensure a highly accurate frequency response.
