Naim CD5 XS CD Player
As Naim’s premium entry-level player, the Naim CD5 XS CD player doesn’t just sound better than our CD5si: it also gives you more room for growth.
You can make its sound even more expressive by adding Naim’s FlatCap XS power supply component. Alternatively, you can use its transformer-coupled digital output to upgrade it with Naim’s external DAC. Add an ND5 XS network player and Naim 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.
Technology & Craft
The Naim CD5 XS CD player shares some of its core components with more advanced Naim CD players. Its low-resonance radial arc disc tray and transport suspension is a unique Naim feature. Designed to provide a rigid and stable platform for the CD, it sits on an independent suspension system to isolate it from mechanical energy and maintain sound quality. Creating a unique loader also brought other advantages: it meant Naim could control important factors such as the reflectivity and composition of the drawer surface which also has a significant effect on sound.
Its extruded and anodized aluminum casework is classic Naim. As with all Naim products, the Naim CD5 XS CD player doesn’t just contribute to the premium aesthetic, it’s an integral part of the overall design. It provides the perfect platform for the internal electronics to perform at their very best by negating external interference and resonances. The Naim CD5 XS CD player is the perfect stage to let your CD collection shine.
