Cary Audio Design Ships New CD-500 CD Player

Although a lot of the market has switched over to digital downloads, the variables in all the components involved mean that CDs are still the way to go for a lot of audiophiles. Cary Audio Design is still here for those consumers, bringing forth the CD-500 CD Player.

 While the general CD market has diminished significantly, the need of audiophiles for a superb disc player has never been stronger. Disc-based systems may not be as convenient as digital files but formats like SACD provide truly great audio quality. Even CDs provide better sound quality than the compressed digital files that are most commonly available.
