NAD C 546BEE CD Player

5-Star rated CD Player. Every aspect of sonic performance is enhanced and refined making the C 546BEE the ideal companion to our C 356BEE amplifier or any system in need of a performance upgrade.

With the worldwide acclaim and numerous awards for the C 545BEE’s outstanding performance and value, it is fair to ask why NAD would “mess with success”. However, NAD has never rested on its laurels and development is ongoing at the NAD Lab. We launch new models when we feel a significant improvement has been achieved. Such is the case with the C 546BEE. Besides more refined cosmetics, the circuit layout and component choices have been extensively updated. The cumulative effect of these changes is dramatic, improving low frequency slam and extension, while maintaining the pace and timing for which our CD players are so lavishly praised. Image depth and scale are further enhanced while retaining the timbral accuracy and lucid harmonic structure of its predecessor.
