In typical NAD fashion, they designed the NAD C 446 Digital Media Tuner as a very uncommon music player-a gateway to your digital music sources and to the world's best radio. Beneath the classic NAD chassis of the NAD C 446 lays a uniquely powerful digital media player with Internet radio, FM/AM and DAB/DAB+ (where available). Included in its uncommon bag of tricks is the ability to stream your music collection from multiple networked storage devices using DLNA and Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) standards. Other great features include USB playback, Wi-Fi, an easy-to-use Internet radio portal and support for cloud music services, such as Last.fm.

We love computer music but hate computer sound. Why listen to your digital music through computer speakers when the NAD C 446 can play it all on your performance HiFi system? The C 446 utilizes an UPnP client to allow you to play audio files wherever music is stored on your network*, such as your computer, Android phone, Apple iOS device, or network hard drive.

Browsing your media collection is not limited to the control panel of the NAD C446 Streaming device. Thanks to UPnP Digital Audio Renderer (DAR) technology, you can browse, create playlists, and change songs from anywhere in your home using a variety of networked devices. Simply connect your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or PC (with Windows 7) to the network and start selecting music.

Thousands of radio stations. All kinds of music. Plenty of Podcasts. The C 446 knows no boundaries when it comes to serving up great radio from around the world. An easy-to-navigate Internet radio portal allows you to browse and customise lists with all your favourite Internet radio stations.

An audiophile-quality 24 bit/192kHz DAC and high performance analogue audio circuitry extracts every ounce of detail from your favourite music. The NAD C 446 Streamer handily outperforms broadcast quality thanks to its finely tuned RF and IF sections when listening to FM/AM, and lovers of DAB/DAB+ digital broadcast will appreciate the improved audio quality compared to other radios.

The NAD C 446 has a chameleon nature. Analogue FM/AM can be decoded as SPDIF digital output. Likewise, digital formats can be listened to using a high quality analogue output. An RS-232 serial interface port allows easy integration with advanced home automation systems. You can also control and charge your iPod or iPhone by adding NAD's optional IPD 2 Dock for iPod.

The NAD C 446 Streamer supports all the popular digital formats-MP3, FLAC, WMA, WAV, and AAC-and offers a great opportunity for music lovers who want the quality found in high-resolution audio files. Streaming these large files to the C 446 is simple thanks to its networking capabilities.
