|I've bought this deck over a year ago and its the best one I've ever had, especially when its combined with a full Nak reference series amps and speakers. The only draw back is the cd player needs to be taken apart and cleaned at least once a year or else serious skipping occurs, but I've found that normal in any high end equipment and have the know how to do it myself.|

|I had the CD-45Z for 5 years before selling the truck it was in. I installed a CD-500 in my new truck and it sounds very good. The CD section failed after a few weeks and the unit was replaced where I purchased it. This unit really is nice looking (it looks a lot like a stock unit) and has good control. Very nice unit and I highly recommend Nak stuff.|

|I purchased my nak cd500 oversea when it first available in 2005. The sound is very clean and easy to use. Unlike my alpine 9833, I have to carry the manual. Nak Looks amazing. If you like good SQ, this is the one with 24 bit/DAC CD and Radio. I normally crank the volume up high, the sound is still very crisp and clean. That is why I removed my Alpine 9833 the first place. Once you try Nak, you won't look for anything else.|
