Naim CD Players
World Class sound. Naim Audio, based in Salisbury, England, have been producing the world's finest CD players, amplifiers, loudspeakers, network players and all-in-one systems since 1973.
Since the birth of the CDS in 1991, Naim continue to demonstrate their capacity to make the finest sounding CD players possible.
This development programme culminated in the CD555, commonly accepted as one of the greatest CD players ever made. The technology used in the development of the CD555 has filtered down throughout the entire Naim range giving users the ability to upgrade through high quality products to reach the level of performance they expect, at a budget they can afford.
Every Naim product is conceived, designed and engineered entirely in service of the sound, revealing a pure experience of music that is as close as possible to its original live source.
Naim believe that the exploration of sound is an adventure that rewards you with a clarity and connection that becomes more powerful the deeper you travel within it. Which is why, every element within each Naim component is crafted to create a silence around the sound, reducing any interference between you and the intention of the artist.
Naim achieve this through tireless attention to four fundamentals in their engineering:
Naim design and build to give each of the critical components their own environment, omitting outside or ‘toxic’ interference, which means no compromise on the purity of sound.
Naim expertise in cuircuit board layout minimises any interplay between the internal levels, so that you can simultaneously enjoy both the quiet and the loud, as originally intended.
Naim only use materials that excel in performance, not just appearance.
Naim constantly strive for new and innovative ways to achieve their goals, integrating sophisticated electronic design and software development, with mechanical engineering and acoustics to deliver a truly advanced sonic experience.
By managing the relationship between these four pillars of engineering, Naim's listeners can hear every single note in equal measure and transcend from audio sound to musical performance. Naim call this unique and emotive transmission the ‘Voice of Naim’; it’s their signature, their calling card.
This ‘voice’ has been carefully engineered across the product portfolio and crafted to take you the listener deeper through this journey into music, from the excellent entry-level Mu-so wireless range, through to the ultimate listening investment in Naim's ‘Marque’ separates - Classic, 500 and Statement, their flagship amplification system.
Let the voice of Naim take you inside the music… Go Deeper.
Naim CDX2 CD Player
Designed well, a product should have many years of useful life.
The original Naim Audio CDX debuted in 1999, and the revised CDX2 shares plenty of design DNA with its predecessor. Its radial arc disc tray is classic Naim Audio.
It is different from the motorised assemblies used by other players, but undoubtedly better, with superior isolation and resistance to resonance.
In its latest incarnation, the CDX2 has incorporated some useful new enhancements, including a switchable digital output and extra low-noise clock regulation.
Naim CD5 XS CD Player
As Naim's premium entry-level player, the CD5 XS doesn’t just sound better than the CD5si: it also gives you more scope for growth.
You can make its sound even more expressive by adding a FlatCap XS power supply. Alternatively, you can use its transformer-coupled digital output to upgrade it with an external DAC.
Add an ND5 XS network player and Naim Audio amplification and you’ll have an accessible high-end separates system capable of delivering a seriously convincing sound no matter how you choose to listen.
Naim CD5si CD Player
The CD5si CD player, especially when partnered with the complementary NAIT 5si integrated amplifier, sets a thrilling new standard for musical performance at Naim's entry level.
With so much focus on audio streaming and downloads it might seem easy to forget the humble CD. But not at Naim Audio. After all, the CD is still by far the world's most popular music format and for millions of music enthusiasts compact disc collections still constitute the heart and soul of precious music libraries.
This outstanding machine, which replaces the previous CD5i, brings worthwhile performance benefits for users but retains the functionality and straightforward usability of the classic player. The CD5si is designed to be the best in its class, incorporating genuine technological advances to provide a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.
