The NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer is a simple and cheap method to add streaming music to your existing stereo or home theater system. Connecting this gadget to a set of powered speakers creates a compact audio system, perfect for a den or home office.

It is compatible with common network streaming and casting protocols so you can use your favorite music applications to manage playing. These include Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, DLNA mobile and PC apps*, and Roon.

High-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz is playable on the CS1, thanks to its use of audiophile-grade components. The PCM5141 DAC from Texas Instruments provides the foundation for the high-end differential digital section, which excels in terms of dynamic range, noise floor, and clock jitter immunity.

Playing Tidal’s Master Quality tracks requires MQA decoding and rendering, both of which are fully supported. This device makes it simple to stream your favorite tunes. You may use it to play audio from your favorite applications on your mobile device or over your home network after you’ve paired the two.

The line-level analogue RCA outputs on the CS1’s tiny, simple design allow it to be wired to a stereo receiver, integrated amplifier, preamplifier, or a set of powered speakers. Digital audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution may be sent from the CS1’s optical or coaxial output to an A/V receiver, external DAC, or powered speakers with digital input.

This device may be easily linked to a private network at home. It has a LAN Ethernet connector for wired or wireless connection to a router or access point. You may also connect it to your mobile device through Bluetooth.

Playing music with the NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer doesn’t need any third-party software. With Bluetooth, you may play music from your PC, tablet, or smartphone. Wireless or wired Internet connection, however, will provide superior audio quality.

With this device, you can play CD-quality music from your iOS device, Mac, or PC’s iTunes collection through AirPlay 2. In up to 24-bit/96kHz quality, Chromecast allows you to stream music from any Cast-enabled app on your phone, tablet, or computer to the CS1.

Users of Spotify and Tidal may queue up songs on their respective applications and stream them to this device for listening on the go. Subscribers to Roon may listen to music from their own digital collections as well as through Roon-compatible streaming providers.

The NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer is equipped with a LAN Ethernet connector, Bluetooth, and dual-band Wi-Fi, in addition to its excellent streaming capabilities.
