NAD M5 - £1,600 Judged for its CD performance only, this multi-format player managed to hold its own Here’s a multichannel SACD player, competing on the strength of its CD performance. Although it should be noted that the M5 offers the full gamut of SACD replay, stereo and 5. 1, complete with bass management and a video output for use in setting up (though an external display’s not actually essential). That much will already make it appeal to lovers of true high-fidelity surround-sound, but there’s plenty more behind the attractive all-metal fascia.

Roksan Kandy K2 - £899 With a highly competitive price tag, Roksan pushes all the right buttons on this fine player Best known as a purveyor of all things analogue, Roksan has had a CD player or two in its catalogue for many years, the Kandy K2 being the cheaper of the two currently on offer. In essence it’s pretty much what you’d expect from a player at this price – straightforward with no frills. The look is distinctive, though, as is the display, which is indeed a bit of a throwback to the 1990s. We mean that in a good way, as it gives a little more information than most.
