Item specifics

Condition: Used Brand: NAIM
Playable Disk Types: CD (Audio) MPN: CD3
CD Capacity: 1 Type: Single Disc Player
Naim NA CD3
Immaculate condition
Comes with original manual, remote, puck, transport bolt and naim interconnect!

This has been very well looked after and I expect it would be very hard to find one as good as this (see below for reason why).

Cash on collection is preferred or you can use a courier of the buyer to collect and avoid insurance claim issues if issues in shipment.  I am happy for international buyers or to ship it to Naim or Avondale Audio for a service or modification if this is the preferred route.  I do know Les at Avondale has transports to service these as this is his top CD player that he modifies.

Reason for sale: I now have an Avondale Audio modified NAIM CD3 which is absolutely superb.  Quite a few years ago I originally bought this player off someone locally with the plans to get it to Les (Avondale) to update the player as it has the very sort after TDA1541 AD converter chip within it which can be tweaked to sound amazing by DIYers and professional audio tuners. The player as standard sounds good but once modified sounds special.

Reason for sale and limited use of the CD3: I had been using a NAIM CD2 which I was using as I collected funds for the Avondale modification, things changed and my CD3 plan went in the loft.. Recently luckily I managed to get a NAIM CD3 already converted by
Avondale Audio secondhand (this modification is £1600 + the player), this meant my completely standard and unmodified NAIM CD3 was no longer required and is now for sale.  The NAIM CD3 I bought a fair few years ago and it has remained sealed and boxed since ~5-6 years+ virtually un-used and it therefore in an extremely good condition as you'd expect a CD player which has been boxed and stored would be.

Thanks for looking


As promised the box weighs 8kg and is 510mm x 460mm x 160mm and my postcode is CM2 for foreign bidders who wish to get shipping quotes.

Hello foreign ebayers,

My preference is for the purchaser to pay for the shipping so the agreement is with them and the courier. I will however sort out a cost effective shipment to Italy or where ever, if you don't feel confident with this. Using the company transglobal I just got a quote ranging from ~£25 to £75 (for Italy) depending on speed of delivery and courier used: my post code is CM2.

If however there is no way for you to do this and to get collection from mine then I am sure I could sort this out IF this was the only way for it to work out.  Please bid with confidence that if you are the winner you will be able to get the player one way or the other.

This also applies for other foreign bidders if they can get quotes at the link given then this is I have found one of the most cost effective shipment companies.  The insurance amount for the above quotes were for £400.

Kind regards,

John Shore
