One might put the app’s intermittent behaviour down to the fact that NAD are still in the process of full accreditation for DNLA/UPnP. Unfortunately, Bubble did not recognize the CS1 as a DLNA-compatible device, so it defaulted back to Chromecast. Our friendly UK based team are here 9am to 5:30pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am to 4pm Sunday to help you complete your purchase. My jaded ears cannot distinguish between WAV and FLAC (and there is academic evidence to suggest that the vast majority of people can’t), so I can sit back and enjoy the music, rather than fret over the barely discernible technical differences.

Bubble lets you browse your private library of digital music as long as it’s accessible on a DLNA or UPnP server, and then stream those tracks at full quality to the CS1. Those already in possession of an external DAC – either fully outboard or located inside an integrated amplifier, home theatre receiver or a pair of powered loudspeakers – can make use of the CS1’s coaxial and TOSLINK outputs where PCM up to 24bit/192kHz is supported. It worked the same way if I used the Wi-Fi Settings menu in iOS’s Settings app, except for one thing: the CS1 did not appear in Google Home. ELAC Discover Z3 Wireless Speaker with 140 Watts of powerful built-in amplification means all you do is plug it in and listen! As I said in the intro, it can be tough to get a sense of a network streamer’s sound quality, because it ultimately depends on the gear to which it’s connected.Passages in the upper octaves had excellent clarity and sparkle, and those in the lower octaves had solid authority. The CS1’s network streaming support is entirely driven by third-party streaming solutions: Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Roon and GoogleCast (which will likely handle the CS1’s network onboarding and configuration).

You can’t use it as a way to pipe an external source like a turntable into your system, something both the Port and the Wiim Pro can do. Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect users 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.

The NAD T 778 is a next-generation AV amplifier featuring 9 channels of Hybrid Digital amplification. Being new to this, I had a lot to learn and I couldn’t find a comprehensive primer on the topic, so I kept notes. It supports resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz and has MQA pass-through support for both digital outputs, enabling full decoding and rendering by a compatible external DAC for playing Master Quality Authenticated music. In my review on Simplifi, I described the Node as “an affordable, painless way to add streaming and other 21st-century capabilities to a legacy audio system.

IMPORTANT – DOWNLOADING ANY SOFTWARE AND/OR PROGRAM, OR DOCUMENTATION ONLINE, INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. When it doesn’t, the app won’t respond to commands, meaning that the only solution is to kill the thread and restart the app until it does work, which may take several attempts.

They would have to pair their phones to the Kin Play system, and perhaps re-pair them from time to time. PICKERING, ONTARIO, CANADA, JANUARY 24, 2023 – NAD Electronics, the highly regarded manufacturer of high-performance audio-video components, today announced the NAD CS1 Endpoint Network Streamer, a compact, minimalist design that makes it easy to add streaming capability to any music system. As an endpoint device, it’s designed to work with a variety of third-party apps and services, and will faithfully follow the commands issued by those apps. However, for other music services, or for listening to your home collection of digital music, you’ll be relying on yet more apps to complete your listening experience.
