NAD Master Series M5 SACD Player
NAD (New Audio Dimensions) has been producing amazing quality audio components for over 40 years. Founded by Dr. Martin Borish in 1972, one of the company's first product major success was the Model 3020 receiver. NAD utilized a patented "Power Envelope" design to essentially store energy in a bank of capacitors which could then be fed into the output signal when needed for peak power transients. This allowed the transistor compliment to utilize highly sensitive, high fidelity components, with modest RMS power ratings, but still power some very demanding speakers.
Fast forward a few decades to when NAD introduced the Masters Series, a group of components made with the highest quality parts and to exacting manufacturing and testing standards; fit for playback of Master recordings of both the analog and digital age.
The M5 SACD player is one such component that has stood the tests of time. It's a classic NAD design, simplistic with only a few buttons gracing the grey and silver front face. The clearly visible digital display and single disc tray are positioned front and center so there is no question what this machine is intended for. The M5 is packed with technical wizardry, and plays both standard PCM CDs and SACDs with clarity and precision. Although disc players don't tend to age gracefully, we have had zero issues with this one and enjoyed some wonderful music as a result.
This M5 comes with the original box, manual, remote, and packing materials and can be shipped easily and safely.
