As the first model in the Reference 7 Series which is a flagship product range, the NR-7CD Network CD player/ Integrated amplifier has received major awards since its launch.
From high-resolution master audio sources, including DSD, to the classic albums sleeping in the corner of your CD library and the vast collections of music that can be accessed online, this unit can handle them all.
Despite being multifunctional in nature, this is a no-compromise device. Every stage, from the D/A converter to the power amp, uses a ‘dual mono’ configuration, fully-balanced from beginning to end. Highly-experienced craftsmen undertake the entire process from soldering to assembly. With a "Made in Japan" label comes immense attention to detail, as well as a level of sound quality that’s appropriate for the flagship of TEAC's Reference Series.
The TEAC sound, which has been recognized in professional audio environments over the decades, and a design that embraces this accumulated history, have been successfully fused into this Network CD player/ Integrated amplifier for a new era.

Versatile support for a wide range of sources
Stream from NAS devices and USB flash drives
High-resolution playback is supported from NAS and high-capacity USB storage devices. As well as 2.8/5.6MHz DSD and 384kHz/32-bit PCM,* numerous other formats (DSF, DSDIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless, WAV, AIFF, MP3, AAC) are supported. In addition, gapless playback is supported for every lossless format, allowing uninterrupted playback of live performances that span multiple tracks.
* 384kHz PCM is downconverted to 192kHz PCM, 352.8kHz PCM to 176.4kHz PCM and 32-bit to 24-bit.
* Playback of high-resolution formats from NAS requires a compatible audio NAS.
Full support for Spotify, TIDAL and Qobuz
There’s comprehensive support for the Spotify, TIDAL and Qobuz subscription music streaming services. Spotify enables you to enjoy 50 millions of music at free* over Internet, while TIDAL and Qobuz provide huge collections of music of high-resolution (or CD-equivalent lossless quality) at flat rate.
Owners can use the TEAC HR Streamer to select and enjoy tracks seamlessly from their own NAS and USB storage as well as from Spotify/TIDAL/Qobuz’s vast collections in the cloud.
* The "Spotify Premium", an on-demand service is a paid service.
LDAC-compatible Bluetooth® receiver enables wireless high-resolution transmission
In addition to LDAC, which enables high-resolution audio transmission, the NR-7CD’s Bluetooth® receiver also supports Qualcomm® aptX™, AAC and SBC codecs. Using a compatible device, you can easily enjoy wireless high-quality audio listening.
LDAC can transfer data at rates about three times greater than existing technologies.* You can thereby enjoy high-quality sound wirelessly from devices that support LDAC, including high-resolution and CD-quality audio sources.
* Bluetooth® A2DP SBC (when 328kbps, 44.1kHz) (See http://www.sony.net/Products/LDAC/)
TEAC HR Streamer
TIDAL qobuz The TEAC HR Streamer is an OpenHome-compatible network control app with user-friendly interface.
The app provides quick and stress-free operations such as scrolling a huge playlist, sorting the list by issued years, composers or categories, and magnifying album artworks, by caching tag information and album artworks in the app.
The operation screen including playlist and library has well-organized layout enabling even users unfamiliar with the app to operate it intuitively, while allowing users to create and playback playlists via an Android phone/tablet wirelessly.
* To operate a TEAC network player from the app, the Android phone/tablet and the network player must exist on the same network. Wireless LAN is also necessary. App Store Google Play
Optical/coaxial digital inputs enable DSD transmission
Two optical digital inputs and one coaxial digital input allow you to enjoy high-quality audio from TVs, universal players, portable audio players and many other digital sources. Transmission of high-resolution signals is supported, and PCM signals up to 192kHz/24-bit and 2.8MHz DSD signals can be input.*
* The DoP (DSD Audio over PCM Frames) format is used for transmission.
TEAC-made CD drive mechanism, provides high performance and reliability
The audio CD drive mechanism used, one that we have designed and manufactured ourselves, has a proven track record, having been used in many professional CD players. You can easily continue to enjoy your CD collection together with that format’s traditional ease of use.
In addition, upconversion with RDOT-NEO interpolates analogous data for frequencies above 20 kHz, which is not recorded on CDs, allowing you to enjoy smooth and rich sound that is closer to the original source.
