NAD CS1 Endpoint Bluetooth Network Streamer
About this deal
The London, England-founded, Canadian-based company, announced the compact audiophile-grade component today that allows you to add streaming capabilities to pretty much any music system. The CS1 is a departure for Lenbrook Industries, the Canadian company that owns the NAD, PSB, and Bluesound brands. If that’s you, know that any potential audible lift might be scuppered by the presence/quality of switching regulators inside the unit. The soundstage was more two-dimensional, and Mehldau’s touch on the piano was not as clearly conveyed.
The CS1 features an advanced differential digital section based on Texas Instruments’ PCM5142 DAC, a design known for its wide dynamic range, low noise floor, and immunity to clock jitter.At the time, the streaming music company was silent regarding pricing or the potential timing for the new tier's debut, but a recently spotted video suggests it could happen imminently. Upon termination you will destroy the program or documentation and all copies you have made of them.

YOU AGREE NOT TO MODIFY, ADAPT, TRANSLATE, REVERSE ENGINEER, DECOMPILE, OR DISASSEMBLE THE PROGRAM OR ONLINE DOCUMENTATION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THIS AGREEMENT OR UPON NAD’S WRITTEN REQUEST. NAD has used a metal chassis under the plastic skin, and I have no doubt that the internal components are equally robust, even though I can’t see them.

And according to NAD’s press release, support for DLNA/UPnP streaming is expected to be in place by the time the CS1 goes on sale in March 2023 — but BYO UPNP app.Your last hope for getting the CS1 to deliver its very best performance is to download an app like the excellent Bubble UPnP for Android.
Alternatively, you can use the CS1’s optical or coaxial output to send digital audio to an AV receiver, external DAC, or a pair of powered speakers with digital input, at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution.The bass performance is as I would hope for through this DAC pre and power arrangement that I am now very happy with. In fact, if you’re a Tidal HiFi Plus subscriber, you’ll get the best possible audio quality by using Tidal Connect to stream to the CS1 from within the Tidal app on iOS or Android.
