NAD C658 Blue OS streamer DAC

I’ve been looking at one of these myself and went to my local dealer but they do not have any yet. World Wide Stereo and Music Direct have them in stock.

World Wide Stereo - http://www.worldwidestereo.com/prod...aming-dac-c658

Music Direct - http://www.musicdirect.com/more-bes...C-Preamplifier


There’s also the NAD M10 - http://nadelectronics.com/product/m...ing-amplifier/

The NAD10 looks very nice... but I do not need the power
and on the C658 I don't need the Phono pre-amp
I use the AirPulse Model 1 powered monitor speakers with XLR cables
I also have a set of JBL LSR 305 mk1 that I will have some fun with when I get the C 658 up... Dirac, do yo stuff ¡!¡!

I am curious which ESS chip is being utilized in the C 658... the M10 says:
32-BIT/384kHz ESS Sabre DAC

Is that the Pro 9038?

edit: The C 658 is pure high resolution from input to output and features NAD’s Direct Digital 35 bit 844kHz DAC, one of the best performing DACs on the market today with its 130dB dynamic range and incredibly low jitter spec.

The c658 Looks like an awesome preamp
Like an m51 or c510 but with analog inputs and built in BlueOS and DSD support.
I have the c510 and it’s great. Perfect digital volume control.

I wish they had decided to go direct digital in the new M10 steaming AMP

I might add this to my system, really like the built in room correction.
