The CD5 XS CD player has probably seen the most changes on the journey from its CD5x predecessor within the XS Series.
Almost every element, with the exception of the mains transformer and the disc mechanism, is new or significantly revised.
Fundamental elements including critical analogue circuitry have been updated to extract yet more music from every CD.
Also new in the CD5 XS is the inclusion, for the first time on a Naim CD player seperate, of a transformer-coupled digital output that provides the choice of digital or analogue signal output.
Improving on the award winning CD5x was a tough ask, but through scrutiny and refinement of every last engineering detail, the class-leading Naim CD5 XS delivers newly dramatic and vibrant music.
