Product Description

The C516BEE CD Player is a top choice when it comes to combining performance with price. It represents the very best of audiophile performance and cost conscious engineering, making it the ideal companion to NAD's popular C316BEE Integrated Amplifier or in fact any amplifier.


Improving on the five-star rated C515BEE design was no small task, but the C516BEE exceeded NAD's expectations thanks to its latest generation 24-bit/192kHz Cirrus Logic Delta/Sigma DAC for very accurate dynamics. NAD also fine-tuned the analogue stage for even lower distortion compared to its predecessor. The C516BEE’s industrial design has also been refined 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 C516BEE is set to become one of 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 C516BEE 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.

More Music: 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 C516BEE uses the latest and best-sounding decompression algorithms for MP3 playback, while the 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.

User-friendly Control: The C516BEE 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 personalised 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.

Our Take

The C516BEE's front panel looks very clean, and gives you easy access to basic functions without a lot of extra stuff getting in the way. You'll enjoy playback from a variety of discs, ranging from regular CDs to home-burned CD-Rs filled with MP3 and WMA files. And with the included full-function remote control, you'll have command of popular features like repeat play and direct track access without getting off the couch. Great sounding unit, simple and easy to use, compact and stylish. Exactly what you would expect from NAD. Recommended!
