NAD C 538 Compact Disc Player

The NAD C 538 CD Player is a product that offers a slim design and impeccable quality of sound. Listen to your favourite CD’s with the same crystal clarity as a vinyl record, thanks to NDS’s innovative engineering. The sleek, light weight design can fit on any shelf or table and easily be put away when it’s not being used. This product relies on a combination of mechanical, digital and analog technology extract a modern sound from a classic medium. This player is ideal for those who aren’t ready to get rid of their old CD collection but want a product that can live up to today’s standards of audio clarity.

Many of the techniques NAD has perfected for Hi-Res Audio playback have been applied to the venerable CD format, including a high precision clock for lowest possible digital jitter performance and the latest generation Wolfson High Spec 24/192 DAC. The C 538 outputs include Stereo Analogue along with Coaxial and Optical Digital Outputs.

The C 538 supports MP3 and WMA playback. In addition to playing CD discs, it is also compatible with CD-R/CD-RW discs, allowing you to play customized CDs burned from a computer. Because these songs are encoded in MP3 or WMA, the user can fit up to 10 hours of music on a single disc which is perfect for party mixes or ambient listening. There are also both optical and coaxial digital outputs that allow connection to an external DAC or digital component (like an AVR) to provide the most efficient and best sounding system setups. The C 538 comes supplied with an IR remote and detachable AC cord.

The NAD C 538 includes many desirable features that enhance listening experiences. Front panel controls are duplicated on the handheld remote allowing Play, Pause, Skip, and Scan functions. In addition, many more features are available from the remote handset, such as Random: Tracks/files are played at random mode, Program: Enter or exit program mode, Repeat: Track, file or whole disc is repeated, and RPT A-B: Playback sequence is repeated. The dimmable dot matrix display shows tracks and total playing time. Track time, disc time and remaining time are all clearly viewable.
