CD555 CD Player

  • Massive aluminium chassis to minimise resonance and vibration
  • Critical electronics suspended on a brass sub chassis via coil springs
  • Low-resonance CD clamping system using rare-earth magnetic puck
  • Non-reflective coatings used around the CD mechanism to reduce interference and noise
  • Shielded enclosure to isolate DACs, plus separate low-jitter clock circuit with its own power supply
  • Separate high-performance power supply (555 PS) to isolate sensitive electronics from electromagnetic interference (not included)
  • Hand-built from carefully selected components

The CD555 is Naim's and our reference CD player, the finest ever made in our opinion. It is a statement of engineering excellence and a showcase for Naim's core beliefs and it avoids features that don’t contribute to its performance. It is the ultimate expression of everything Naim know, so it uses a top-loading transport mechanism and a heavyweight brass sub-chassis which suspends critical electronics away from interference. A carefully designed, low-resonance CD clamp avoids the vibration-induced errors that afflict conventional CD mechanisms while its digital-to-analogue circuitry is shielded in a dedicated enclosure, ensuring superior isolation from electric and magnetic fields. 

Of course, it’s a fast, detailed and dynamic-sounding performer: anything less would be fundamentally at odds with what Naim do. But more than any one particular aspect of its presentation, the CD555’s genius is the way it brings each disparate strand of your music together into one fluid, natural and involving performance. This, we believe, is how music should sound from a home system.

As with many Naim Audio products, its power supply components are housed in an entirely separate unit, the 555 PS, for ultimate performance. 

Grahams recommend you partner this CD player with the following components as part of a complete system:
