NAD C 516BEE CD Player
The C 516BEE CD Player represents an unbeatable combination of audiophile performance and cost conscious engineering, making
it the ideal companion to our popular C 316BEE Integrated Amplifier. Improving on our five-star rated C 515BEE design was no small
task, but the C 516BEE exceeded our expectations thanks to its latest generation 24/192 Cirrus Logic Delta/Sigma DAC for more
accurate dynamics. We also fine-tuned the C 516BEE analogue stage for even lower distortion compared to its predecessor. The
C 516BEE’s industrial design imparts a sleek new profile to our Classic NAD face. Standby power consumption is reduced to a tiny
trickle (<0.5 watts), saving energy while still allowing full remote control. Like many NAD CD players before it, the C 516BEE is set to
become the best in its class.
> Hear the Heart and Soul
> Beauty on the Inside
While this CD player may be light on the wallet, it certainly
isn’t light on sound! The C 516BEE gets the full measure of
NAD engineering experience with enhanced audio circuitry
to maximize performance, resulting in better stereo imaging,
tighter bass, and clean, accurate, distortion-free sound. The
painstakingly engineered circuit layout extracts the best possible
performance from audiophile-grade component parts for minimal
noise and maximum detail retrieval. This focused effort results
in a vivid, musically rewarding experience.
We have even paid special attention to analogue and digital
audio output stages, because they are not all created equal.
The analogue output has been fine-tuned for even better audio
performance. An optical Toslink output and one coaxial output
are buffered and isolated to ensure perfect matching and to
minimise ‘jitter’.
> More Music
From major label CDs to personalized CD-Rs topped up with
your favourite MP3 and WMA files, this NAD CD player will
make your music sound better than you thought possible. The
C 516BEE uses the latest and best-sounding decompression
algorithms for MP3 playback, while our superb D/A conversion
and analogue amplification stages ensure the greatest sound
quality for compressed music files.
> User-friendly Control
The C 516BEE is designed with a number of thoughtful features
developed for the music lover. Disc loading is smooth, quiet,
and fast, so you can sit back and enjoy your music even
sooner. You can also program selected tracks on a CD
for personalized listening, and the bright and clear VFD
display shows complete track and time information, as well as
user-programmed functions. Programming tracks for customized
playback is easy with the full function remote that includes handy
tools such as Repeat, Repeat A-B (for a section of a track),
Random, and Dim Display. Everything is at the tips of your
fingers without ever having to leave your listening chair.
