This is another CD player from NAD that really impresses with its sound quality and a budget price tag. If two channel stereo via a CD player is still your thing, don’t skip over this. Retaining its signature greyish blue finish and a simple front fascia layout, the C546BEE is a breeze to use straight out of the box. No massive manual to read through and figure out what each buttons are for. Just put in a CD, hit play and you are all ready to enjoy wonderful music. NAD did add a USB input on the front panel to bring it to the “modern era” of varying music sources where the onboard DAC will offer a sampling rate of 384 kHz via this input. Redbook CDs will go through the highly rated Wolfson 24-Bit DAC chip.
Cosmetically, the unit looks really good. Minor scuff marks from being used as a DEMO but nothing major. Remote is still wrapped in its original plastic wrap and never been used. We have the original box and manual too. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
