NAD C568

The NAD C568 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 NAD C568 the ideal companion to our C 368 amplifier, or any system in need of a performance upgrade.

Although CDs are often dismissed as relics of the past, we here at NAD recognize the pride and joy one feels when combing through their 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.

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.

    I’ve bought from Audologica before so had no hesitation in dealing with them again. Richard was most helpful in sourcing an ex display model of this CD player as there were delays with getting a brand new device. He kept me informed with the progress of my order and DPD did their usual efficient job of delivering on time. And I should add that I’m very pleased with the NAD C568 which has a much improved sound compared with my ancient NADC542 – greater clarity and separation.

    Great customer service! Thank you very much!

    I am so happy with both new NAD devices – the C568 and the 328. The difference in sound is astonishing. I’ve always liked NAD and it was time to get back to my favourite players. Richard was so helpful. I’m planning speakers already.
