C516BEE Compact Disc Player
The C 516BEE CD Player represents an unbeatable combination of audiophile
performance and cost conscious engineering, making it the ideal companion
to our popular C 316BEE Integrated Amplifier. Improving on our five-star
rated C 516BEE design was no small task, but the C 516BEE exceeded our
expectations thanks to its latest generation 24/192 Cirrus Logic Delta/Sigma
DAC for more accurate dynamics. We also fine-tuned analogue stage for
even lower distortion compared to its predecessor. Weve also refined
the C 516BEEs industrial design imparting a sleek new profile
to our 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.

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 favourite
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 our superb D/A conversion
and analogue amplification stages ensure the greatest sound quality
for compressed music files.
Beauty on the Inside
We 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.
