C 546BEE CD Player
C 546BEE CD Player
It’s hard to mess with success. But following the superb performance of our 5-star rated C 545BEE, the C 546BEE
CD Player steps it up to the next level. Every aspect of sonic performance has been refined and enhanced, thanks
to an extensive update of the circuit layout and components. We’ve also given the C 546BEE a cosmetic makeover.
Comparable to more costly CD players, this is the perfect companion to our C 356BEE Integrated Amplifier or any system
in need of an upgrade. A new benchmark has been set.
> Musically Complete Audio
The C 546BEE features new circuitry and component choices
that dramatically improve low frequency slam and extension,
while maintaining pace and timing that you will surely
appreciate. Image depth and scale are further enhanced while
retaining timbral accuracy and lucid harmonic structure.The
result is a musically complete and rewarding performance.
> User-friendly
A number of thoughtful features promise to make the
C 546BEE more enjoyable to use. ‘RANDOM’ randomly
selects all tracks on the disc, and ‘REPEAT’ allows repeat
playing of either the entire disc or individual tracks. Individual
tracks can be quickly accessed using the SKIP function, and
the SCAN function gives an aural précis of individual tracks.
> More Music
The C 546BEE supports a wide range of program material,
including CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and unlike older CD players,
it will easily play discs encoded with MP3 and WMA
compression. The C 546BEE also features a USB Input that
supports external memory and audio rates up to 384kbps.
> Digital Outputs
Not all digital outputs are created equal, so we’ve paid
special attention to such details. The coaxial output is
buffered and isolated by a 75 ohm matching transformer
thus isolating the converter to ensure perfect matching.
This reduces jitter that could otherwise distort the digital data
stream. An optical Toslink output is also provided allowing
connection to supported devices.
> Inside Beauty
We isolated the analogue and digital audio sections electrically
by using separate power regulators to reduce interaction.
The C 546BEE uses carefully selected components, including
high quality OPA 2134 op-amps and a 24-bit high-resolution
Wolfson digital-to-analogue converter chip for excellent
low-level linearity and detail retrieving capabilities. We
also carefully laid out the PCB tracks around the digital-toanalogue converter to help optimize the audio performance.
> Simplicity and Control
The C 546BEE comes supplied with an easy-to-use NAD
CD-9 Full Function remote control, giving you direct and
complete control of the C 546BEE from the comfort of your
listening chair. The remote allows programming of up to
20 tracks, removal of tracks with a single click, and
effortless navigation.
