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, we
here at NAD recognize 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

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.

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

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

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