A trip down memory lane. Those 90's NAD cd players were so good.
Even hold up today as you find them in the marketplace.

Be interesting to hear a comparison of this with the Oppo players out there. To my ears, my Oppo-93 easily bests most players in that price range.

I still love several old(er) players and have a couple in different systems in my home. One system has an old Adcom GCD575 in it and it sounds terrific. I experimented with adding a GDA600 DAC to it for awhile but went back to just the stand alone player. In my main system I have an OPPO 95, which I love, but I also still have an old Rotel player that gets a lot of play time.
