Summary: I was shopping for a single cd player in this price range and came across the NAD 516BEE. What impressed me the most was the looks of the player, the price and the technical specifications. None of the other brand cd players in this price range have 118db signal to noise ratio or a 2 year warranty.

Summary: I Replaced my Arcam Cd player after 7 years in finally give up on me. My Budget was low but wanted a Good player to replace the Arcam. I recently purchased the C516BEE player After 3 days of Listening the verdict is WOW.
Summary: I had to send the first NAD C516Bee back because of a thumping noise that neither NAD nor Crutchfield could solve. But with that excellent customer service exchange plan of Crutchfield I promptly returned it and in a few quick days received the new and improved version. It was worth the wait.
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction. Much better than streaming music. Remote allows multiple ways of enjoying music.
Cons: Remote is very limited, but it is the sound quality I wanted and it delivers!
Summary: First time buyer of NAD product. I have been using my blu-ray dvd player for my music and I was totally ignorant about a dedicated player for CD. After reading a number of audiophile magazines, I became better informed about CD players and selected this NAD 516 player.
Pros: Great sound quality. Simple, easy to use. Modest price for a quality product.
Summary: A simple, easy to use, great sounding CD player. It did everything it was advertised to and I really like its small size. Out of the box and playing in 5 minutes. The owners manual was a disk however and to go over some of the other functions I had to stop and use my computer. I prefer a paper copy.
Pros: Good signal to noise ratio. Quality look and feel. Simple and easy to use remote. Low profile. Power on off on the remote..
