Naim CD5i-2 (used)

Post by Tubeezator on Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:36 am









The most successfull Cd player of all time, the fabulous naim CD5i-2(MK2). Although the "i "Series represents Naim's introductory electronics range, but these products sound far too sophisticated to be considered 'entry-level'! They have a sense of musicality, rhythm and sheer verve that other makes can only dream of affraid .


Designed by the same team that produced the world's finest CD player at salisbury,the fabulous Naim CD5i-2 benefits both from technology and the passion to extract every last grain of music from the disc that it's playing.
Although audio streaming and downloads it might seem popular easy to use, After all, the CD is still the world's most popular music format and for millions of hifi enthusiasts,a good cdp like Naim CD5i-2 always  sounds far superior then audio streamers.
And all great recording still based on compact disc formats and commonly used in hi-end musics playback system .

Naim..

There's plenty of detail,
Tone colors? I'd say the Naim is again right on par, and you'll recall I believe this is one of the latter's strong suites, but with the Naim there's something hard to describe that gives it an edge in instrumental texture. I think it has to do with the more open, clear presentation of the Naim.

As for sound stage and imaging, the width is somewhere in between the rather extreme cases, and therefore probably closer to reality than either. The soundstaging is big and wide enough, but not to the point where you're questioning how true-to-life the reproduction of the source recording is. Imaging is very strong, with players and instruments positioned precisely and clearly, with the sought-after "air" and "space" around individuals. In this regard I can imagine better, but it's still among the best imaging I've heard, falling short only when compared to the best Analogue LP setup.

When the Naim was dropped into place all the things I've described above breathed life into the music, plus something else I haven't yet noted. This CD player seems to have an iron grip on the music, so much control and tautness, it never sounds overwhelmed or disorganized even when challenged. In the end, I had a more emotional connection to the music when it was played back through the Naim combo (Nait 5 Si).

If you know anything about Naim as a brand, it's probably their reputation for a house sound that does timing very well, which results in a quick, lively sound. What you get with the CD5i-2 is a more up front, or forward presentation. You're closer to the action, in other words. CD5i-2  brings everything to life in a big way. The music is more exciting,you feel more involved. Is there a bigger compliment than that? Maybe, but that's a big one. 

As for the pace and timing thing, it's all true, and your foot will be a tappin', trust me. You can really hear this with percussion and bass lines. Transient response is fast and clean, there's no blurring whatsoever, and this makes the beat and rhythm sound more realistic and enticing, which we know of course to be vitally important. 

There's plenty of detail,
Tone colors? I'd say the Naim is again right on par and you'll recall I believe this is one of the latter's strong suites, but with the Naim there's something hard to describe that gives it an edge in instrumental texture. I think it has to do with the more open, clear presentation of the Naim, LOUD & CLEAR! 

I've been doing a lot of listening through headphones lately, but not long ago I did a direct comparison between the Naim and Marantzee players through my secondary system, using normal speakers. When the Naim was dropped into place all the things I've described above breathed life into the music, plus something else I haven't yet noted. This CD player seems to have an iron grip on the music, so much control and tautness, it never sounds overwhelmed or disorganized even when challenged. In the end, I had a more emotional connection to the musics.

The CD5i -2 provide an affordable beginning to Naim ownership and thus represent the first steps on the pathway that ultimately leads to audio nirvana
