The affordable CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer lets you add music streaming capability to any stereo or home-theatre system. Or you can configure a low-footprint music system for your home office by connecting the CS1 to a pair of powered speakers.

The CS1 supports the most popular network streaming and casting protocols, including AirPlay 2, GoogleCast, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect and Roon, so you can control playback with the music apps you use every day. There's also Bluetooth on board to keep things simple and convenient. The CS1 employs audiophile-grade components and can play high-resolution audio, up to 24-bit/192kHz.

Plug and Play

A compact, minimalist design, the NAD CS1 has a pair of line-level analogue RCA outputs for connection to a stereo receiver, integrated amp, preamplifier, or a pair of powered speakers. Alternatively, you can use the CS1’s optical or coaxial output to send digital audio to an AV receiver, external DAC, or a pair of powered speakers with digital input, at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution.

You can connect the CS1 to your home network via Wi-Fi or hardwire its LAN Ethernet port to your network router or an access point, or use Bluetooth to pair the CS1 with your mobile device.
