As our premium entry-level player, the CD5 XS doesn’t just sound better than our CD5si: it also gives you more scope for growth. You can make its sound even more expressive by adding our FlatCap XS power supply component. Alternatively, you can use its transformer-coupled digital output to upgrade it with our external DAC. Add an ND5 XSnetwork player and Naim Audio amplification and you’ll have an accessible high-end separates system capable of delivering a seriously convincing sound no matter how you choose to listen.
Stiff, extruded aluminium casework provides excellent resistance to external vibration
High performance drawer and transport mechanism as with our premium CDX2 model, providing low resonance, low-inertia disc operation
BNC digital output for connection to external DAC
