The NAD C 658 is a new type of stereo component, one that changes prejudices at once and opens new opportunities for audio display. You can see that there has never been a component that offers such a rich palette of both new and proven technology.
Define the architecture of HiFi display
As we penetrate deeper into the 21st century, the way in which music is distributed and video is evolved from physical media to streaming evolve. It also went from analog for digital. The C 658 has processed these fundamental truths to create a completely new type of component that a Network streamer, a state-of-the-art DAC And many aspects of the traditional preamplifier combine into a very cost -effective package. And thanks to NADThe exclusive Modular Design Construction will keep pace with the latest technology, not yet introduced, but inevitably in the future. In fact, an optional HDMI 4K switch module is now available that offers the best sound of each of the many available HDMI sources (such as game consoles and video STBs). Although the C 658 your streamer, DAC And preamp immediately replaces (or adds), it also adds many new functions that you may not be aware of, such as a Bluetooth APTX HD channel to use with your wireless headphones. The very flexible outputs ensure a truly balanced connection to reinforced speakers or amplifiers. Single-ended connections for amplifiers and subwoofers are also present and include an adjustable subwoofer-Rossover that is perfectly executed in the digital domain. A very advanced mm Phono-Sendang is also included, together with line inputs for older analog components.
BluOS™ switched on
Is also on board BluOS, the most advanced high-res streaming system that is available. BluOS Supports more than 15 streaming music services as standard and indexes more than 250,000 songs from local network sources. The C 658 will be a junction in it BluOS-Ecosystem which makes network connections with high resolutions to 64 zones and control options for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac OS telephones, tablets and desktop devices can be streamed. BluOS Also supports all the important smart home controllers and is available in a wide range of products, making it easy to create an audio system for a complete house with the C 658 as a core point.

If you want a sturdy block of handmade aluminum with gold -colored accents, you have to search somewhere else. If you want state-of-the-art performance and functions in a sturdy no-nonsense package, you have the right address.
High resolution in every detail
Most NAD-Components have been High Res for 45 years with a very wide bandwidth, low distortion and ultra -ruis. We have never had a high res source material to play. With high res digital recording and streaming, combined with advanced technology such as MQA, record companies open their safes and release studio Master Quality recordings. MQA decoding is available via BluOS Streaming content. The C 658 is pure high res from input to output and is equipped with the ESS Sabre 32bit DAC, one of the best performing DACToday's market with its 118dB dynamic reach and incredibly low Jitter specifications. All pre-reinforcement functions are performed in the digital domain, including the same wide non-building digital volume control that is used in our Masters Series components. This offers an incredibly short analog signal path that, quite unique, is identical for all volume settings. Advanced active power supplies ensure super clean voltages for all circuits to keep noise and distortion on the edge of the measurability.
Let the speakers disappear. (It's not magic)
The C 658 is also the first NAD-stereocomponent that can be seen Dirac Live Room Correction *, the most advanced and effective room correction available. Dirac corrects the impulse response of your speakers, in addition to the frequency response of your room, for a truly transparent window in the musical performance. When the resonances are tamed in the room and the temporary response is corrected, the result is magical. You've never heard that you speakers This is invisible or so good!
* Note: The C 658 contains a license for Dirac Live with the option for advanced users up to upgrade to a Dirac Live full frequency version to upgrade to frequency version
Head quality verified
Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that is built into each BluOS Enabled amplifier to capture MQA music and deliver it to your speakers in the purest quality. All BluOS Enabled players and systems contain a powerful decoder and audio display for the millions of the MQA-Coded songs. The MQA logo that in the BluOS-App is displayed, indicates that the device is busy decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and let you know that you hear exactly what the artist has recorded and approved in the studio.
