NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer
NAD’s CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer is an easy and affordable way to add audiophile-grade music streaming to any stereo or home-theater setup. Or you can combine the CS1 with a pair of powered speakers to configure a modern, low-footprint music system. Featuring Bluetooth® , Ethernet, and Wi-Fi connectivity, the CS1 supports the most popular network streaming and casting protocols, including Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, DLNA, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, and Roon. The CS1 can play high-resolution audio, up to 24-bit/192kHz and decodes MQA recordings for master quality listening.

Well Supported
There are a multitude of ways to play music through the CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer. You can use Bluetooth® to pair the CS1 with a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The CS1 is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles - A2DP 1.2, AVRCP 1.3, SPP, HFP, HSP, HOGP

You’ll get even better sound via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. You can use AirPlay 2 to stream CD-resolution audio from any app on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, or from an iTunes library on a Windows PC.

You can use Google Chromecast to cast music to the CS1 from any Cast-enabled app on a mobile device or personal computer, at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Spotify and Tidal subscribers can cue up music in the apps for those services, then easily transfer playback to the CS1. Roon subscribers can play music from their digital libraries and from streaming services supported by Roon.

Audiophile Grade
Regardless of how you stream or cast music to the CS1, you’ll love what you hear. Employing premium components throughout, the CS1 features an advanced differential digital section based on Texas Instruments’ PCM5141, a chip known for its extremely low noise, excellent dynamic performance, and immunity to clock jitter. The CS1 supports resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz.

Well Connected
You can connect the CS1 to your home network via Wi-Fi or hardwire its Ethernet port to your network router or an access point. The CS1 has a pair of RCA line-level analogue outputs for connection to a stereo receiver, integrated amp, preamplifier, or a pair of powered speakers. Alternatively, you can use the CS1’s optical or coaxial output to send digital audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution to powered loudspeakers with digital inputs, or to a home-theatre receiver or external DAC.

A compact, minimalist design, the NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer makes it simple to add streaming capability to any sound system—without the need for special apps. Choose the music you want to hear with apps you already know, then sit back and enjoy audiophile-grade sound.
