Extensive research carried out over the last few years has been fully employed in producing the integrated CDX2 CD player. More recently the CDX2 has undergone some performance-enhancing modifications to offer additional flexibility and continue in its offering of as few compromises as possible to ensure complete musical satisfaction, rivalling that of the finest analogue turntables.


Notable among the modifications to the new version are the inclusion of a switchable S/PDIF output for use with external digital to analogue converters and a BNC connector for correct impedance matching, as well as performance-enhancing modifications to the internal boards.


The CDX2 is designed to be the best in its class, incorporating genuine technological advances to provide a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.

Full Description

Designed well, a product should have many years of useful life. The original Naim CDX debuted in 1999, and the revised CDX2 shares plenty of design DNA with its predecessor. Its radial arc disc tray is classic Naim. It’s different from the motorised assemblies used by other players, but better too, with superior isolation and resistance to resonance. In its latest incarnation, the CDX2 has incorporated some useful new enhancements, including a switchable digital output and extra low-noise clock regulation. After all, being able to do something well shouldn’t stop you from trying to do it better.



Technology & Craft

Integrity and stability of the signals read by the laser were prime design considerations for the CDX2's development. A suspended transport and low mass magnetic clamping system ensure that the disc spins accurately and silently, unhindered by mechanical resonance.

The mass of the custom-made glass reinforced front-loading drawer mechanism has been carefully calculated to optimise rigidity and isolation. Additionally, the internal shielding has been improved bringing about further upgraded performance and lower noise. Paths between critical components are as short as possible to preserve delicate signals and each stage of the circuitry is powered by a separate regulated supply.

The CDX2 has a fully double-regulated power supply with 20 low-noise, regulated power supplies on the main circuit board, plus a separate supply on the servo control board and another on the display board. The CDX2 is easily upgradable via the XPS ultra low noise power supply to provide a substantial improvement in sound quality.

All main control functions are handled by a microprocessor running Naim-written software. Every aspect of the servo controller/decoder functionality is under software control: Naim-written codes allow maximised performance in all areas. For example, the transport parameters are optimised for each disc as it is loaded.



Features

    Suspended transport with low-mass magnetic clamping mechanism to resist resonance
    Anti-vibration resonance-controlled feet plus cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis to further counter vibration
    Fully double-regulated power supply with 20 low-noise, regulated voltages on the main circuit board, plus separate supplies on the servo control and display boards
    User-selectable DIN and RCA analogue outputs, plus digital output (only functions when analogue outputs are disabled)
