    TASCAM CD-RW 901 MK II vs. Naim 5 i

    I still have both of the CD players and tested them in paralel. Have to say that the sound quality is very close, may be the Tascam is deeper searching for details and the 3D image is more precise. I appreciate both, however I find the Tascam more practical because of the Digital Inputs enabling the use of its internal DAC , say for the connection of a Inernet Radio that I have.
