Summary: Sounds ok in stock form.I opened mine up and was shocked at the site of cheap deplorable Chinese capacitors Cambridge loaded on the main,dac,and servo board.Well,I replaced over 90% of the capacitors with much better quality brands.The player now sounds like it should in my opinion Bass is much...
Summary: As I readsome of the reviews for this player by the so called professional reviewers, I read comments like shallow soundstage, with somewhat harsh highs, and tonally thin. I guess that’s why reviews are subjective because I don’t get that with this player, my NAD C272 integrated amp, and my...

Summary: I have listened to many cd players under $1000. I was looking for a cd player to replace my aging Marantz 63SE, it has a magnificient musical mid band and excellent deep soundstaging. I have B&W speakers, rotel and nad power amps, and a valve pre.
Summary: I have owned the V2 version of this CD player for 7 months. I have experienced no difficulties with it at all. I bought it to replace my Yamaha CDC-705 that was about 12 years old. The sound quality was immediately apparent and amazing.
Summary: This is for the version 2 of the 640c. Right of the batt I will state that I have a very high-end system consisting of a New Bryston B100 SST integrated Amp, Totem hawk speakers, Purist Musaeus interconnects, and Kimber 8TC speaker wire.
Summary: It requires a thorough break-in period. Mine had some quirks with skipping tracks, refusing to play some older CD's. These annoyances slowly disappeared as the unit approached and passed 36 hours of operation. Great piece of audio equipment.
Summary: I bought a new NAD C541 new in May 2001 and realized just a couple of months ago it's over three years old. The way I think about components - that's not really old, but it wasn't the greatest build quality to start off with so was thinking it might be time to replace it.
Summary: ive only owned this player a short time and have not fully broken it in yet. but it already out performs my last player.it reads cds very quick.has nice detail.very mellow not the harsh treble i used to have.i must admit ive not compared this to alot of expensive players but am very pleased.my...
Summary: Good player, in my opinion definitely better than its Rotel competitor, which downright sucks. I heard this CA also beat the best NAD Cd players in a head to head comparison. Overall Rating (4)= very good product, can't say it was more than I expected but it was very very good at this price All in...
