Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Denver CO, October 5, 2017– NAD Electronics, a leading manufacturer of premium home audio and video products, introduced the C 558 Turntable for the resurgent vinyl market. The C 558 is a full-featured, belt-driven model targeted for the record enthusiast who is looking for exceptional value. Pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 phono cartridge, the C 558 is $499 U.S. MSRP and will be shipping this month.
As with all NAD products, the C 558 turntable prioritizes the engineering investment where it provides the maximum ROI for the consumer. For example, the turntable features a Belt drive (playing 33 and 45) for maximum noise isolation, a precision AC motor with isolated AC power supply with universal voltage. Other important features include a glass platter with felt pad, a MDF plinth (base) and a low resonance dust cover.
For extra value, the C 558 is pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 phono cartridge in a 9” tonearm that offers vertical tracking angle and azimuth adjustment. The phono leads are detachable with a separate ground and a high quality stereo RCA cable is included.
“NAD continues to be at the leading edge of the high-res digital revolution however we also recognize that there is an equally enthusiastic market for vinyl playback”. stated Greg Stidsen, Director of Technology and Product Planning for NAD. “Staying true to the company’s roots, NAD’s formative years always revolved around quality vinyl playback as the source. At $500, the C 558 delivers on our longstanding philosophy of outstanding performance and value.”
NAD will be exhibiting at the RMAF in Denver, Colorado October 6-8, 2017. Along with sister brands PSB and Bluesound, they can be found in Room 8021 in the Tower and in A03 of the Atrium section of CanJam.
