Naim's CD5 XS doesn’t just sound better than the CD5si, it also gives you more scope for growth. The performance of it can be improved upon by adding a Naim FlatCap XS power supply. Alternatively, you can use its transformer-coupled digital output to upgrade it with a Naim DAC. Add an ND5 XS network player and Naim Audio 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.
The CD5 XS shares some of its core components with more advanced Naim Audio CD players. Its low-resonance radial arc disc tray and transport suspension is a unique Naim Audio 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.
Its extruded and anodised aluminium casework is classic Naim Audio. As with all Naim Audio products, it doesn’t just contribute to the premium aesthetic, it’s an integral part of the overall design.
