Lenbrook Canada, the Canadian distributor of numerous high-performance audio/video brands, has just introduced the new NAD C 446 Digital Media Player. This new component enables music lovers to network and stream popular digital formats from their computer, Android phone, Apple iOS device, or network hard drive, while providing high quality Internet radio, FM/AM, and DAB/DAB+ (where available).
NAD’s C 446 Digital Media Player offers the latest technology in digital media networking, supporting all the popular digital formats – MP3, FLAC, WMA, WAV, and AAC. Aside from music stored on networked-devices, the C 446 seamlessly allows the listener to enjoy Internet radio, FM/AM, and DAB/DAB+, with improved audio quality in comparison to other radios. With 24bit/192kHz DAC audiophile quality and high performance analogue audio circuitry, the music enthusiast is able to enjoy every single beat of their music collection.
With the capabilities and features of the C 446, the listener is not restricted by any means. The C 446 is able to stream music collections from all networked devices using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standards. The UPnP Digital Audio Renderer (DAR) technology allows the user to browse, create playlists, and change songs from anywhere in the home using a range of network devices.
On the other hand, the C 446 Digital Media Player doesn’t constrain the music lover to the limits of their own music collection. The C 446 outperforms broadcast quality radio and improves the sound quality of DAB/DAB+ digital broadcasts. Through finely tuned radio (RF) and intermediate (IF) frequency, the user is provided with improved audio quality while listening to FM/AM radio broadcasts, compared to other radios. The C 446 also allows the user to decode analogue FM/AM as SPDIF digital output, and likewise, listen to digital formats in a high quality analogue output.
The C 446′s additional features include USB playback, Wi-Fi, a user-friendly Internet radio portal, support for cloud music services, such as Last.fm, and an RS-232 serial interface port, which allows for easy integration with advanced home automation systems. Also, you can control and charge your iPod or iPhone with ease by adding our optional, IPD 2 Dock, for iPod.
MSRP – $800.00 CAD
