Anyone have any experience with Naim CD Players?
What is your opinion on the CD5i, x, x2 line? (These are players in the $1700-$5200 price range.)

Have you compared them to other CDPs? I compared it to the Rega line of CD players and found Naim to be higher in detail and accuracy.


Thanks,

Vince

I read that article after I bought the CD5X & know about the upgrade. That's what makes it nice. I have the CD5x now. Upgrading the power supply bumps it up to the next level. It's like buying the CDX2 w/out the external PS. I'm not ready to spend the $$$ on an X2. I never bought an A/V piece that cost this much before. I hope I made a good choice. My ears think so.

I auditioned CDPs without reading any reviews. I picked the 5X due the quality of the sound. My concern is should I have listened to other brands besides Naim, Rega, Music Hall or Cambridge? Krell makes a CDP in this range, but I heard the transport is noisy and slow, but could have been an isolated incident.

thanks for the reply,
