Compact, stylish and sparkling-sounding, the Tangent CD II is the perfect CD player for enjoying your disc collection.

Quality CD sound

High quality components are used by Danish company, tangent, to deliver a smooth and detailed sound. The robust slot-load mechanism uses fewer moving parts than a draw system, giving improved reliability.

Compact size
Narrower than most Hi-Fi separates, the compact Tangent CD II fits tighter spaces. The matching tuner and amp make up a neat system that has the convenience of a mini system with the sound quality of separates.

System remote control
The supplied remote control doesn’t just operate the CD player, it also controls a full tangent system, including amplifier and tuner – making the full Tangent system every bit as convenient as an all-in-one system.

Fully featured
Desirable features include an optical digital output – perfect for connecting to a higher quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) or digital amp. The player is also compatible with MP3 files, making it ideal for playing back your MP3 mix CDs.

Get the best from your CDs, with the stylish Tangent CD II.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Track display and annoying track gaps Firstly, I was aware of the lack of display before I bought this cd and didn’t think it would be a real issue... surprisingly it is actually more annoying not to have one than you realise so be sure if you go for this player that it’s not so something you need. Secondly, and most importantly, the small gaps in optical output mode at the beginning of most commercial cds does drive you mad - a quick switch to analogue and a good rca cable and you can work around it but it does defeat the object IMO. However, if you can get past these petty annoyances, the sound quality for £100 or just over is terrific and well worth the money. It almost feels like a record player having to work out which track is playing when you listen to something new. Be wary of the flaws but still for the price, worth considering but I would not recommend to most without the amp to go with it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rather pleased with this but not perfect. I've had this player for about a week. Based on 12/15 hours of listening here's my 10 pennyworth. I'm very limited for space in my cabinet. My amplifier and pre-amp run on valves which need a lot of space if they aren't to cause the cabinet to burn down due to the heat output. This limits the space for other devices. The Tangent CD ii and Tuner ii both fitted into the space previously occupied by the CD player alone. Plus point. I'm not completely convinced that the colour on the CD is the same as the tuner. I can't pin it down. A couple of friends commented about this without prompting too. The jury is put on this. The tuner needs a good external aerial. Use it without or with the included mini cable aerial and you'll be disappointed. The Radio 3 classical concerts on FM with an external aerial are stunning. DAB holds signal without a rescan. Plus point. Correction to other reviews. The remote will allow more than the first six tracks to be easily selected, sort of... For example to jump straight to track 14 simply type 1 followed by 4. Not sure how to shortcut tracks that have a 7,8 or 9 in them as the buttons only go up to six. A unit of this level and price really needs a display and 10 track buttons on the remote. Negative point I feel. However, the remote has a good range and is responsive. Plus point. I like the way the CD player sounds given my listening patterns (Latin rock, Celtic Rock, Jazz, Opera) it's very punchy and stereo separation is exact which is essential in a classical world. My previous player was a Teac PD-H01 reference which is/was considerably more expensive. The Tangent player is there with it, just about, for my ears there's not enough difference to get at all bothered. The Joan Sutherland recording of the Doll Song from the Tales of Hoffman on Decca is a challenge for most players ( I gave up on this recording on vinyl) and is one of my favourites, I'm pretty happy with the rendition from the Tangent. Plus point. In summary. The size works for me. The sound works for me. I'm not at 100% with the handling. Would I buy it again knowing what I do now? Probably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic, no frills with great sound. Had this up and running for about a week now. I chose this CD player because it was just a CD player without any flimflan, bells or whistles. I tend to listen to CDs in the same way as my vinyl, put it on, sit and listen. Therefore perfectly suited for my requirements. Looks stylish and sounds fantastic all for sub £200. You can't go wrong, highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lucky bag quality remote My Tangent CD11 was to make up for a failed CD drive in my Cambridge Audio One. Service from Richer Sounds was superb. First impressions of the Tangent were good. Nice aesthetic design with the feel of good build quality. Sound was good but it can be a bit late jumping in to play a track which can be unsettling. The otherwise good product is badly let down by its programability and its pathetic remote control. There is no track shuffle or track program function. For some bizarre reason the numeral buttons only go from 1 to 6, if you want to play a higher track it can only be accessed by continuously pressing the forward button. There is no visual indication for the number of the track being played. The unit itself has the look and feel of a cheap toy. The appearance of the controls indicate the it is primarily intended for different unit and it was adapted to work the CD player as an afterthought. As to whether I would recommend this to a friend? I would give an honest description and let him/her make their own decision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent entry level CD player Really happy with the CD player, but the lack of gapless playback make for a slightly frustrating experience with some albums.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A compact compact (disc) The CD11 almost proves the saying that less is more. Dressed in black finish metal casework it certainly looks the part and it draws a CD into it’s innards with a super smooth action. Right out of the box it provides a warm inviting sound with little in the way of rough edges...a better sound than it’s cost suggests. My only mild disappointment isn’t so much the absence of a display as I knew that when I placed the order, but with the remote control. I am sure that a dedicated remote could have been sourced to go with this machine, or at least increase the numerical keys to enable access to track numbers with a value of more than 6. Nonetheless this player appears to be a genuine bargain and one I look forward to listening to.
