C 516BEE CD Player
The C 516BEE CD Player represents an unbeatable combination of audiophile performance and cost conscious engineering, making it the ideal companion to their popular C 316BEE Integrated Amplifier. Improving on NADs five-star rated C 516BEE design was no small task, but the C 516BEE exceeded expectations thanks to its latest generation 24/192 Cirrus Logic Delta/Sigma DAC for more accurate dynamics. The analogue stage was fine-tuned for even lower distortion compared to its predecessor. NAD has also refined the C 516BEEs industrial design imparting a sleek new profile to the Classic NAD face. Standby power consumption is reduced to a tiny trickle (<0.5 watts), saving energy while still allowing full remote control. Like many NAD CD players before it, the C 516BEE is set to become the best in its class.
C 516BEE Features:
Hear the Heart and Soul
- While this CD player may be light on the wallet, it certainly isn't light on sound! The C 516BEE gets the full measure of NAD engineering experience with enhanced audio circuitry to maximize performance, resulting in better stereo imaging, tighter bass, and clean, accurate, distortion-free sound. The painstakingly engineered circuit layout extracts the best possible performance from audiophile-grade component parts for minimal noise and maximum detail retrieval. This focused effort results in a vivid, musically rewarding experience.
- From major label CDs to personalized CD-Rs topped up with your favorite MP3 and WMA files, this NAD CD player will make your music sound better than you thought possible. The C 516BEE uses the latest and best-sounding decompression algorithms for MP3 playback, while their superb D/A conversion and analogue amplification stages ensure the greatest sound quality for compressed music files.
Beauty on the Inside
- They have even paid special attention to analogue and digital audio output stages, because they are not all created equal. The analogue output has been fine-tuned for even better audio performance, while digital outputs are buffered and isolated to ensure perfect matching and minimal 'jitter'. An optical Toslink output and one coaxial output are also provided for connection to supported devices.
- The C 516BEE is designed with a number of thoughtful features developed with the music lover in mind. Disc loading is smooth, quiet, and fast, so you can sit back and enjoy your music even sooner. You can also program selected tracks on a CD for personalized listening, and the bright and clear VFD display shows complete track and time information, as well as user-programmed functions. Programming tracks for customized playback is easy with the full function remote that includes handy tools such as Repeat, Repeat A-B (for a section of a track), Random, and dim display. Everything is at the tips of your fingers without ever having to leave your listening chair.
