Available for immediate purchase is a Rare, classic Naim CDS serial no. 73016 in superb cosmetic and sonic condition.One of the best CD players ever made.
Recently serviced by authorized Naim dealer.
Fully functional --no skipping or searching for tracks.and the sound is very dynamic,rythmical,and natural. Selling because it is no longer being used I rated it 7 because there is a small section of the faceplate with a chip but it has no affect on the sound.
Please note: Pictures of the interior of the player are not mine and are used to give you an idea of the state of the art engineering achieved by Naim designers.
This player definitely deserves it's almost legendary status. Two box player with separate power supply. The main unit is built around Philips parts: CDM 4/25 mechanism hung on a spring suspension and electronic PCB with Philips parts, including a superb DAC TDA1541A S1 Single Crown.
Construction is from circa 1989 and it uses 4 op-amps in the output stage. It is a non conventional two-box approach, where the bottom box contains raw power supply. Yes, the CD player which consumes something like 10 watts of power has 15 kilograms of - 500 VA power supply, bigger than most amplifiers have.
Where this machine excels constructionwise is the PCB layout. The grounding, the regulation, the capacitors, the layout, - everything is from the best league, head and shoulders above the Philips / Marantz machines of that time.
