The C 516BEE features the latest generation Cirrus Logic 24/192 D/A Converters for more accurate dynamics and a finely-tuned analog stage for lower distortion compared to its predecessor. Audio specific OP Amps assure accurate musical sound while standby power consumption is reduced to <0.5 watts. The C 516 BEE offers a choice of COAX or Optical digital outputs.

The new industrial design of the C 516BEE imparts a sleek new profile to the Classic NAD face and complements to the C 316BEE integrated amplifier. The C 516BEE plays both CD and CD-R/W and decodes MP3 and WMA files copied to CD-R for up to 10 hours of continuous play. For added convenience, the NAD player offers "Repeat" function for 1 song, 1 disc, or A-B repeat, "program play" with direct access from the remote control and "forward" and "reverse" skip and search functions. An informative VFD display gives complete information about tracks and time.

"While NAD is focused on the development of a broad range of wireless and streaming audio products, we also know music lovers still have collections of hundreds or even thousands of CDs. So there is still a need for a high performance CD player." commented Greg Stidsen, NAD's Director of Technology and Product Planning. "For those audiophiles where cost is a consideration, the C 516BEE will not disappoint. True to NAD's design philosophy, we've focused our investment in areas that will provide the most sonic benefit and avoided the frills that only add cost and complexity."
