This listing is for a literally unused Naim CD5si in the box. Purchased new from an auth dealer, opened and tested at the dealer for 5 min to verify correct operation, put back in the box and stored in a bedroom closet ever since. Guaranteed to be as described.
This unit does not have the optional external power supply, it comes with the factory thick power cord. It has outputs for both RCA and Naim DIN, and can be used with any normal preamp or receiver. Orig msrp is $1699, offered for $1000 plus $60 domestic shipping. We guarantee this unit has 5 min of use total. Look at the reviews for this CD player, many claim it is the best CD player they have ever heard.
The CD5si is designed to be the best in its class, incorporating genuine technological advances to provide a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.
The CD5si digital to analogue converter chip has been upgraded to a Burr Brown PCM1793 - a device very closely related to the one used in the NDX high-end streaming player. The CD5si also benefits from a more stable DAC clock, higher voltage power supply rails, a revised analogue filter design and a brand new CD transport and laser optics.
All these changes were driven by a relentless search for engineering reliability and sound quality, and the benefit of each change was confirmed after many hours of listening.
However, just as change can bring improvement, there's often nothing wrong with sticking to your guns, so the CD5si retains all of its predecessor’s best features and Naim Audio trademarks. The unique Naim Audio swing-out CD drawer, laser tracking and digital error correction software, discrete analogue output electronics, and a die-cast, non-magnetic enclosure construction that helps ensure the electronics within can extract the most music possible from every CD.
The fine print...
