Listening to vinyl is a unique experience unlike any other. NAD’s C 556 Turntable accentuates this experience by producing a phenomenal sound that both grips and moves vinyl lovers everywhere. Building on past designs, the C 556 reduces speed variations thanks to a precision main bearing and low vibration motor. Employing NAD’s compression-molded Phenolic Resin platter, the C 556 releases every last nuance of energy present in your valued LP recordings. By diminishing the size and number of mechanical joints in the newly designed tonearm, energy-absorbing mass is kept at a minimum. Less mass allows the C 556’s tonearm to accurately track vinyl records and limit the amount of perceptible distortion. The included cartridge is aligned at the factory for perfect tracking and easy setup, resulting in a turntable that will have you falling in love with your vinyl collection all over again.


  • The platter of the C 556 uses a special phenolic resin that is pressure molded to create the ideal properties of being both massive and inert.
  • A precision synchronous clock motor keeps the platter spinning at exactly 33 1/3 RPM
  • C 556 uses a hand-built arm featuring an alloy tube and precision bearings at the gimbal pivot.
  • vibrations are carefully isolated from the platter by a synthetic rubber belt and from the base by rubber isolation mountings.
