TEAC CD-P800NT is a versatile CD player that has conventional CD playback and also offers built-in network audio capability with DLNA 1.5 high-resolution audio formats such as 5.6MHz DSD and 24-bit/192kHz WAV/FLAC playable from PC or NAS.
CD-P800NT features two USB ports, one each on its front and rear panels, supporting high-res audio files as well as MP3 and WMA read from USB Flash memory. Via the front USB port, up to 5.6MHz DSD and 24-bit/192kHz WAV/FLAC are supported, while the rear USB port supports up to 2.8MHz DSD and 24-bit/96kHz WAV.
CD-P800NT also lets you listen to online music streaming services such as Pandora and Sirius XM, as well as conventional free internet radio stations (more than 24,000 stations worldwide). Another useful convenience feature is that favourite internet radio stations can be memorised (via PC) so that you are able to quickly recall them without first having to scroll through long lists of stations.
TEAC Remote App
A DLNA-based App "TEAC AVR Remote" for iOS/Android devices can be downloaded from Apple Store and Google Play free of charge. Using this gives you the ability to control the playback of music files via wi-fi as well as key functions such as play and skip.
The front USB port supports iPod/iPhone digital direct connection so music files travel to the CD player digitally then are processed via the high-performance DAC. Finally, line-level signals are delivered via high-quality analogue audio stage to your hi-fi amplifier. The USB port also supplies DC power charging your device.
The high-performance BurrBrown PCM 1795 D/A converter is one of the key reasons the CD-P800NT sounds so good. It comfortably processes high-resolution audio files such as 5.6MHz DSD and 24-bit/192kHz WAV/FLAC, files which contain a huge amount of data compared to conventional CDs.
A pair of JRC's NJM8901 op amps are employed in the analogue circuit. This 'exclusively designed for hi-fi' op-amp is also used in the Reference 501 series and delivers excellent bass definition, a wide soundstage, and impressive clarity. A Schottky barrier diode is employed in the power supply section to supply clean current. Compare to conventional diodes, the Schottky barrier diode eliminates much more noise and supplies a cleaner and more stable current to every section of the CD-P800NT.
An easy to use, large control knob is employed for convenience allowing you to easily select internet radio stations or a particular song/album from lists of music files on NAS (Network Attached Storage). The CD-P800NT has conventional CD playback, as well as built-in network audio capability compatible with DLNA 1.5. High-res audio formats such as 5.6MHz DSD and 24-bit/192kHz WAV/FLAC can be played back from PC or NAS.
A straightforward, dimmable fluorescent display that shows artist names and song titles is fitted on the front panel. In auto power save mode (user defeatable), the CD-P800NT automatically goes into Standby mode if hasn't detected an incoming audio signal for more than 20 minutes.
- 'Some would say it's a CD player that can stream music. Others would call it a high-res network player that plays CDs. Either way, it's a versatile device and a great way into the world of hi-fi separates, especially if you've not yet committed to a single format.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
- 'Want to go hi-res? You can play WAV and FLAC files up to 24bit/192kHz. The Teac is even compatible with DSD up to 5.6MHz.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
- 'Detail levels are good. A clear sense of texture is afforded to vocals and instruments, along with well-defined leading edges to notes. This definition is maintained even with complex rhythms.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
- 'The Teac CD-P800NT is a feature-packed box of tricks and it sounds good too... If you're after a single solution that does the job of many, this deserves an audition.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
