Nad C516BEE vs Nad C546BEE as a transport

Hi All,

Was wondering if anyone had any feedback or opinion on which player would make a better CD Transport. The other choice I had was using the Tascam CD-200 or CD-500.

Thanks for any and all feedback!

I can't find anything that would motivate me to buy either one, let alone one over the other.
Virtually any Blu-Ray player will play the same formats, play a lot more formats and even cost less.

I was doing the same comparison at first and then realized what was just said. I run music from a USB thumb-drive from the front of my Blu-Ray player (Sony). I run the output of the S/PDIF, and sounds better than any other method I have tried so far, and that includes direct USB to the Integrated Amp (NAD 390DD). I just hate having to use a method that I find a convoluted solution and wanted something more streamlined. I like those Bluesound Vaults, it will accept CDs, store them for you, and also has a DAC if you need it and a good GUI.

The short answer is neither.
