The C 568 takes the superb performance of our 5-star rated C 565BEE and steps it up to the next level. Every aspect of sonic performance is enhanced and refined, making the C 568 the ideal companion to our C 368 amplifier, or any system in need of a performance upgrade.
 

Every aspect of sonic performance, enhanced and refined.

Although CDs are often dismissed as relics of the past, NAD recognises the pride and joy one feels when combing through a personal CD collection. Whether it’s peeling away the plastic or marvelling at the album artwork, the process of buying and opening a CD is both intimate and sacred. With our C 568 CD Player, your CDs finally get the attention they deserve. Whether it’s a newly bought CD or a personal mix you made for yourself, the C 568 will seamlessly play the disc without any skips or glitches. Building on the success of our C 565BEE, the C 568 includes all the features you need for an easy and joyous CD-listening experience. Complete with the new NAD CD-8 remote control, the C 568 delivers a high level performance worthy of your music library.

Modern and Refined

Besides the new, more refined cosmetics, the circuit layout and component choices of the C 568 have been extensively updated since the C 565BEE’s reign. The cumulative effect of these changes is dramatic, improving low frequency slam and extension, while maintaining the pace and timing for which the C 565BEE was so lavishly praised. Image depth and scale are further enhanced while retaining the timbral accuracy and lucid harmonic structure of its predecessor.

Features and Circuitry

Creating one’s own favourite compilation CD-R and CD-RW’s on a CD ripper is becoming ever more popular, and unlike older CD players, the C 568 will easily play these discs, even those encoded with MP3 and WMA compression. Nearly 10 hours of music can be recorded onto one CD-R when using 128kps compression allowing ‘all day’ background music listening. We have also included a number of additional features to make your listening more enjoyable: RANDOM gives the listener a random selection of all tracks on the disc in play, and REPEAT allows repeat playing of either the entire disc or individual tracks. Individual tracks can also be quickly accessed using the SKIP function (Forward and Back), while the SCAN function (Forward and Back) gives listeners the opportunity to reach specific sections of the track.

Moreover, the Vacuum Fluorescent Display provides clear and comprehensive information to the listener. The track number is displayed, and for those who regularly record CDs, the button displays the current time elapsed or remaining for complete CDs or individual tracks.

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.

Supplied with the new NAD CD-8 full function remote control, the C 568 offers all the features described above from the comfort of your listening chair. On top of that, the remote control handset gives you direct track access and programming facilities, saving the user’s time when they’re storing preferred song titles. Up to 20 tracks can be programmed with the ability to delete tracks without using the program function by simply using the DELETE key.

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.

Delivering a rewarding and outstanding performance, the C 568 has set a new benchmark in the world of CD players.
