Actually, it can only play the CD layer of a hybrid SACD disc. While probably 90%+ SACDs are hybrid, there are some (I have about a dozen) that are SACD-only (though they tend to be early issues from about 15+ years ago) and they would not play in this player.

The CD-100 CANNOT play:
DVD-Audio discs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray discs.
Surround sound content recorded on any type of disc.
Audio files on pre-recorded or computer recorded discs other than those listed.
Non-hybrid SACDs (SACDs with only a DSD/SACD layer).
Audio files on computer-recorded DVD-R or Blu-Ray discs.

You are right, but for $299 it still is a good player, You can always jump to the CD-300 that have all the bells and whistles.
I can't vouch for CD playing anymore since I stopped using them 7 years ago.

The CD-300 doesn't play anything else that the CD-100 doesn't play. They are the same in that regard. The main thing is that it adds balanced connections.

Supercharged Song Towers, Oppo BDP-203, Anthem MRX-520, LG B6 OLED
Headphone Rig: Oppo BDP-95, Burson Audio Soloist MKII Headphone amp/ Sennheiser HD800S, Sennheiser HD650

I am looking to get a CD player and this one looks good for the price. I also have the opportunity to buy a used Rega Apollo for $450, any suggestions on which one to get? I am leaning towards the NAD simply because of price as i don't think i would use the CD all that much, but when I do I want good sound.

It will be paired with a Carver 806x amp and and Adcom GTP 600

Thanks,
Tim

I was in the same boat as some here a few years back with a trusted spinner crapped out, my Cambridge Audio unit (forget the model#), I went looking for a competent lower cost player and bought the NAD C516BEE. Very nice sounding unit, quiet, reliable (so far). For those of us who still like the shiny discs, with not a big investment, you have very good sound. As others have said, still plenty of cd's around new and they are a great value used as the hipsters pay way too much for LP's.
