NAD's C 446 Digital Media Player supports all the popular digital formats - MP3, FLAC, WMA, WAV, and AAC. Aside from music stored on networked-devices, the C 446 allows the listener to enjoy Internet radio and FM/AM with reportedly improved audio quality in comparison to other radios. With 24bit/192kHz DAC quality and analog audio circuitry, the music enthusiast is able to enjoy their entire music collection.

However the C 446 Digital Media Player doesn't constrain the music lover to the limits of their own music collection. Through finely tuned radio (RF) and intermediate (IF) frequency, the user is provided with allegedly improved audio quality while listening to FM/AM radio broadcasts. The C 446 also allows the user to decode analog FM/AM as SPDIF digital output and likewise, listen to digital formats in an analog output.

Additional features of the C 446 include USB playback, Wi-Fi, an Internet radio portal, support for cloud music services, such as Last.fm, and an RS-232 serial interface port, which allows for easy integration with advanced home automation systems. The user can also control and charge their iPod or iPhone by adding the optional, IPD 2 Dock, for iPod.

The NAD C 446 Digital Media Player is available now with an $800 MSRP.
