I still play CD's....

M. Hamilton, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I've had the NAD C515BEE long enough to appreciate it. The matching amp I purchased is the C315BEE...currently, I'm using MISSION 771 speakers,(but am awaiting a pair of AXIOM bookshelf speakers...they handle more bass). AudioQuest interconnects and Dayton pre-terminated speaker cables round out the system. My collection is quite eclectic...from 60's Rock to World Lounge music, Brazillian easy listening, classical...on and on..

NAD C-542 - Fussy and Slow Operation

Scott Mcgredy "srelay", Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: This review is for the NAD C-542 single-disc player, a model very close in performance and appearance to the above listing. Excellent sound quality as far as I can tell, though my older - and in a few cases less expensive - players including Denon and yes Sony, had equivalent sound and far better operating systems.

Excellent CD Player...

Jack, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I'm an audiophile novice and so I spent much time on stereo websites and forums trying to narrow down my home CD player choice. I wanted something better than what I could buy locally (Walmart, Target, etc) but under $500.00. My choices came down to this player and two others (both Cambridge Audio products). I purchased the NAD because it was more affordable. I am very pleased with the NAD player. It sounds great, runs quietly and looks sleek.

Second Choice

Herman G.LaMont, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I intend to enjoy this purchase. However, I was really hoping to own the C546BEE on which I had done extensive research. I will grow to love the C515BEE.

I wish I had never bought the NAD C-515BEE CD player

MSom "Dissapointed", Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: The NAD C-515BEE CD player was a big disappointment from the moment I received it. The first unit I received could not open the CD shelf at all. The second unit I got was slightly better, but the electronics appear to not be working properly. The player will randomly open and close the CD shelf without me pushing any buttons, which has destroyed multiple CD's of mine.

Audible Difference

Daniel Bal, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I have a nice sound system in my shop with two big Klipsch speakers mounted on the wall, two smaller ones on a side wall and two 15" subs. I have three amps with an active crossover set at 100 Hz. The point of all this is that the system sounds good enough to hear differences in some equipment. I was using a Pioneer ($89 four years ago) DVD player that also had the capability to play MP3s recorded on a CD.

Good sound, decent looks, not sure of the market

M. Levi "mmmarcel", Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this CD player basically as an extra, inexpensive model, and I'm going to figure out where/how to set it up later. I immediately hooked it up to my highish-end system for a head-to-head. This consists of a Rega Mira3 integrated amp, driving a pair of Paradigm Studio 20's - comparison is to a Rega Apollo CD player.

User Review

nandito a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
15 February 2011
  • Summary: I got this unit to replace a Sony CD player CDP 491 from the eighties that finally died after a couple of mayor repairs. Well, I think I prefered the Sony. I am not a fan of CDs sound, but I think the old sony sounded more relaxed, with better staging and a more pleasant presentation. Well, the diferences not big but noticeable. Not to mention the display and remote also better with the sony.To my ears this Nad sound a bit agressive on high frecuencies.

NAD C515BEE CD Player

Citizens Against A Tidy World, Amazon
11 September 2010
  • Summary: I've owned the C515BEE for over a year and never had a problem with it. It probably doesn't have as robust a power supply as NAD's more expensive models, but NAD allocated good parts where they mattered most. The sound is outstanding at this price point. Highly recommended. (Note 1/25/2013: The C-515BEE still functions perfectly and sounds great. Hats off to NAD for taking budget hi-fi seriously with this outstanding product.

NAD T571 DVD/CD changer

gdlive622, Ebay
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this player as a CD changer basically because it plays HD cds and because I love NAD products. It also is supposed to play MP3 cds. Likes: HDCD's and regular CDs sound great. No problem playing home made CD's too. Dislikes: I don't have it hooked up to a TV so I think I'm missing out on some of the "onscreen" programming you can do with the remote. It doesn't seem to like the MP3 cds I've been trying to play.
