NAD ELECTRONICS RELEASE C 558 BELT DRIVE TURNTABLE
Celebrating 45 years in business is a significant achievement, and NAD Electronics don't appear to be slowing down anytime soon celebrating the anniversary with a new belt-driven turntable.
Local NAD Electronics distributor Wildash Audio Systems have announced the release of the new C 558 Belt-Drive Turntable.
Designed for performance and budget-minded vinyl-lovers, the C 558 comes with an Ortofon OM10 phono cartridge pre-fitted.
Michael Wildash, Managing Director at Wildash Audio Systems who distribute NAD told StereoNET NZ:
The C 558 is a full-featured, belt-driven model targeted for the record enthusiast who is looking for exceptional value.
As with all NAD products, the C 558 turntable prioritizes the engineering investment where it provides the maximum ROI for the consumer.
The turntable features a belt drive with both 33.3 and 45 RPM speeds, uses a precision AC motor with an isolated AC power supply.
It also features a 10mm glass platter and felt pad, MDF plinth, rubber isolation feet, and comes supplied with a dust cover. The 9" tonearm also allows for adjustment of vertical tracking angle and azimuth while the phono leads are detachable.
Greg Stidsen, Director of Technology and Product Planning for NAD added:
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.
The NAD C 558 Turntable is said to begin shipping in November. Local pricing isn't confirmed yet but is expected to be around $1,210 RRP.
