Introducing CD5si

Today Naim Audio has launched its new entry-level CD player the CD5si. The CD5si is a step forward in performance from its predecessor the CD5i with improvements to several key areas to significantly improve sound quality.

The new CD5si design includes the Burr Brown PCM 1793 DAC, which is similar in performance and architecture to the DAC used in Naim Audio’s award-winning network players such as the NDX but is more optimised for the fixed sampling rate of CD (rather than the many sampling rates from streamed music). A new higher precision clock supports the new DAC, reducing jitter even further. The analogue output filter has also been improved which together with the new DAC delivers a ten times reduction in distortion.

A new high-performance transport mechanism has been fitted to the CD5si giving improved consistency and longevity. The new mechanism is mounted in Naim Audio’s unique improved swing drawer tray giving it the ideal low resonance, stable platform in which to operate. The internal power supply voltage has also been increased, to improve the linearity of the output signal for greater sound quality.
