Advantages: excellent sound quality - all over the genres
Disadvantages: none apart from the price for non-HiFi buyers
Now, for those of you who are looking for a good Hi-Fi system from separates but don't want to end up spending a fortune; this is your CD Player.
Costing £175 the enigmatically styled NAD C520 reproduces music beautifully when coupled with any speakers and amplifier of this or even slightly lower standard.
Here is a CD player that will really pay justice to your music collection but wont ruin it by picking up every little imperfection in the recording as do some CD players of this price range.
The versatile NAD sings sweetly with any genre of music; pumping out your favourite dance and drum and bass keeping it crisp and keeping the dynamics just right, whilst it will pick out each instrument in a full symphony orchestra and never overdo it.
Very functional with a remote and compact display and controls. Clear and precise Delta/Sigma Digital to Analogue conversion with a coaxial output. Though there is no headphone socket (not really a drawback!) and no programming option.
If you have a casual £500 burning a hole in your pocket, this CD Player will be best suited with the superb Rotel RA-931MKII (£180) and the pounding KEF Cresta II speakers (150) which will guarantee an amzing listen for anyone that'll last for many many years.
An excellent all rounder.
