Naim CDS3 - refurbished 12 month warranty

Naim CDS3


Not so many years ago, this was the top Naim CD player and it still ranks as a very fine source indeed. 

As with next model up, the flagship, CD555, the CDS3 is a top-loading machine and it has to be used with one of Naim's power supplies. In this case either the XPS2 or 555PS. The XPS2 comes with the relevant connecting 'Burdy' lead as standard, the 555PS does not.  Either way, sound quality is exceptional with high resolution and refinement going hand in glove with Naim's trademark musical flow and timing. Predictably, most would regard the 555PS power supply as being better, although some prefer the softer charms of the XPS. In this case, only the CDS3 head unit is offered for sale. You would need to talk to us separately about an XPS or 555PS

This particular example has s/n 199XXX. It was built in 2003 and supplied by The Cornflake Shop. As far as we can fathom, it has had two owners and, when traded in to us, it sounded great but looked a little dog-eared. We have had Naim completely replace the outer sleeve (main body of the casework) and acrylic lid assembly. The protective foil was removed for the photograph.

Since Naim already had it dismantled, we decided to have it fully serviced too (32 capacitors replaced). The CD mechanism had already been replaced in 2007 and it is now supplied utterly pristine with a 12 month warranty. It comes boxed with grey interconnect, handset and a fresh puck. Paperwork for the most recent work is supplied with the player, together with its previous history, is logged on the Naim computer in Salisbury.

The only aspects that betray the age are:

1) the serial number
2) the transfer on the back panel which has yellowed slightly.
3) the fact that is uses Puck3 on its VAM1205 transport.

Beyond that, this is the same as a new unit, which now uses the cheaper VAM1202 transport, with a current retail price of £6795. This CDS3 comes boxed with grey DIN interconnect lead, handset, puck, manual and the peace of mind of a proper 12 month return to base (to us in the UK) warranty.

It is offered by Signals, a Naim dealership of repute near Ipswich, Suffolk.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
