The NAD C 565BEE, at the top of NAD's Classic Series range, has performance that is very close to NAD's vaunted Masters Series M5 CD Player, yet costs half as much. You'll notice right away from the newly refined cosmetics and solid construction that this is one very serious high end component

The NAD C 565BEE CD player applies the very latest in semiconductor design to make an all new CD player with performance that must be heard to be believed. One of the major shortcomings of CD playback has always been the relatively low 44.1 kHz sampling frequency. The sampling frequency is how many times the analogue sound wave is measured or 'sampled' creating a staircase like replica of the original waveform. This is what is stored on the CD disc

Later these digitized waveforms are smoothed out by the circuitry of the CD player. But if the number of steps could be made much smaller - twice as many or even four times as many - the waveform would be much smoother to begin with and the processing in the CD player could be simplified and improved. This is exactly what we have done with the C NAD 565BEE by adding a Sample Rate Conversion circuit that bumps the 44.1 kHz sampling frequency up to 96 kHz or even 192 kHz.

The NAD C 565BEE's superb digital and analogue performance can also be applied to other types of media besides CD. The front panel USB port allows MP3 music files (up to 320kbs/VBR) stored on a USB Memory Key or USB Hard Disc Drive (FAT 16/32 format) to be played back using the superior performance capability of the C 565BEE. The rear panel optical digital input caters to a wide variety of digital playback devices such as digital tape or mini-disc. Source inputs are easily selectable from either the front panel or via the supplied IR remote.

NAD has responded quickly and responsibly to the new awareness of environmental damage caused by human activity. The NAD C 565BEE CD player is manufactured without the heavy metals that have been identified as harmful to the environment and manufacturing processes meet the latest stringent international standards. Standby power consumption is best in class at <1 watt.

Purchasing the NAD C 565BEE, with its expanded capabilities, is much more than just buying a new CD player. Not only does it make an instant improvement in the sound of every CD in your collection, but also it allows the introduction of new media into your stereo system via the USB input.
