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 5 out of 5 by from Great value and excellent sound I bought a Tangent mkII CD player and despite its low price the sound quality has been nothing less than stellar! A great buy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little CD When I first looked at this I thought mmm just looks like a CD rom drive of old being that small, BUT its perfect as it fits in places that a standard size would not. Ok so it has not got a display but for the price I was not fussed. I wanted this more also to the fact that the CD is slide in/slide out and its really quick too. I have a small tier unit which holds my main amp on and this sits under it and no one can see and I get "but you haven't got a CD player" but I can which I love as its not in your face its discreet. Comes with remote control which controls a whole Tangent stack system. I am really happy with it. Does the job its supposed to. Even better that I found it on another website for cheaper and Richer Sounds didn't only match it, they beat it too. Well done again RS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're delighted with it. We bought it a fortnight ago to add to our Tangent Amp and new record player/speakers assembly. It fits in beautifully (stacks with the Amp) and now we can listen to our CD selection with brilliant sound through the speakers. No more annoying glitches and sticks as with the little portable discman I had been making do with. Don't know why I waited so long !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tangent CD 11 This little unit does what it say's on the tin. I bought it to run through my Majority Fitzwilliam tuner and it works very well as long as you are happy to scroll through tracks without the use of a screen . The build quality is also good

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small footprint I was looking for an inexpensive CD player with a small footprint. The Tangent CD II is just that. My only grievance with it so far is the lack of any display. You don't notice the track number display until there isn't one. I thought that since even the most basic ones have this, they all would. But alas not this one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound for money Needed a small form cd player due to available space, richer sounds matched the price I'd found elsewhere on the Internet and it was delivered very quickly, I'm very pleased with the cd ,great sound from a little unit ! My cds are now getting played again !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value for money I bought this to replace a much older CD player that had started to hum and am impressed with the quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for what it does This does not have a digital track display but that has not bothered me. It has a wonderful sound, takes very little space at the side of my stack and looks wonderful. I guess that if you are a sound engineer you may find fault with this but I'm never likely to test this to the max, and for the stuff I'm playing and the volume I'm playing it at, this is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from C.D. Player Review If you want a compact well built c.d. player this fits the bill.
Date published: 2021-07-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality CD player I bought this along with the tangent II amp as a 2nd system - I’ve only tested the player with a pair of Bose bookshelf speakers so far (I will be linking up a pair of substantial floor standing B&W speakers that are currently in storage) but the sound is excellent. I like the compact and sleek design and the lack of a digital display doesn’t bother me. For the price, I think this unit takes some beating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from David Gilmour all over - Tangent CD II Reading some of the other reviews, I’m on my third system. Working from hime, I have a Panasonic no-fuss CD-and-DAB unit with an unusual speaker system that I use in my home office. Another system has been migrated to another house en masse. That left a gap. Cambridge amp with just a Fisher turntable (Richer purchase from student days) connected. I’ve just invested in a number of David Gilmour’s CDs and DVDs from various live concerts. The DVDs are sorted but still had the issue - what do I play the CDs on? The unit I chose was marked ‘supply erratic’ (you don’t get that from most hifi outlets) so it was add a bit to the budget and go for the (unheard) Tangent. Easy to install. Already a permanent fixture. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things...small packages, etc. So...I had my brilliant Sony amp which was originally intended for vinyl-only play, and then I thought, “wouldn't it be nice if I could play cds through this as well?” Originally, I was looking at a Denon machine but budgetary considerations made the tangent’s price rather appealing. What swung it, I think, was realising that this compact unit was made in Denmark, because I have very fond memories of the Beocentre that served me so well for over two decades. No display window, but since I’m one of those fogeys that’s forever forgetting to wear his specs, this really wasn’t such a big deal. The unit has no cd tray, just a simple slot so there are fewer moving parts. Very simple to install and it comes with a manual which covers the important information and is written in very clear English. The sound is a revelation, crisp, punchy and detailed, with a real presence, capable of handling a wide range of frequencies. (The Cambridge Audio Series 300 interconnecting cables, which RS recommended, have a lot to do with the incredible sound, I’m sure. I definitely want another set of those, and a Y splitter, but will need to seek advice from the team). So, altogether, the unit plus cables cost me just over £200 and I am over-the-moon with my purchase. As ever, delivery was very prompt indeed, with the usual, excellent communication between RS, their courier service and myself. Might I be permitted to express my thanks to the Prestwich team, whose expertise, patience and support shall always make shopping at Richer Sounds such a pleasant, stress-free experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great CD Player I purchased this CD player in January as part of a turntable, active speakers and CD player set up. The Tangent CD player is simplicity itself and the build quality and sound are excellent for this price point. Only thing it lacks is a digital display, otherwise a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality basic CD player My last CD player died 4 years ago but I didn't see the need to replace it. Decided to go back recently but didn't want to spend too much. Good build quality and sounds great. You need to be sure the lack of a display or very basic nature of this player isn't an issue for you. It works well for me but might not be for everyone. The 1st one I bought wasn't working which was a bit of a surprise these days, but Richer Sounds had a replacement with me next day. Great service as always.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If it's what you need I bought this (complete set up of CD, radio and amp) because I had limitations on the available space, I wanted a working CD player (my old TEAC had died!), and I wanted DAB radio. Bluetooth connection is a bonus. This met all the needs at a reasonable cost. I am using my existing Mordant Short speakers. In addition, I bought an optical cable (£20ish) although, NOTE, these are supplied with the unit (although obviously not high quality). The sound from the CD player (using optical connection) is superb. However, I am yet to be convinced about the quality of the radio. This may be a reception issue, but the display is very small, so it is difficult to find the stations (many of which are repeated). Coupled with the complete lack of instructions, I am still trying to work out how this works. The amplifier has a limited number of inputs; it is necessary to use one optical link to free up the RCB terminals. The more I write, the more I convince myself that this set up is a disappointment. However, I will persevere. It is one of the few options for a small, multi-component hi-fi. I guess it would have been earlier if I had been able to see the unit beforehand, but this was obviously kyboshed by Covid. I should say that the interaction with the sales team on the phone was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CD Player Hi, bought some separates a few years ago from the Stoke store, this time I went to Chester. Got great telephone advice from Joe. Jumped in the car and went to get my CD player. Joe was really knowledgeable and helpful, customer experience was first class. Well done Richer fanatastic service in Chester.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I bought this a few weeks ago to replace an ancient cd player that had finally given up the ghost. It was simplicity itself to fit into my system and is producing a much improved sound. I am so impressed by the sound quality I get from it - it is bringing my cd collection back to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uncomplicated with great sound I had been looking for a CD player for some weeks, I didn't want lots of facilities just something to play CDs, so after comparing units in my price range I decided on this Tangent unit, there's no. track display or other twigly bits which suits me. It's very easy to use - put a CD in the slot and it plays and the bonus is the sound is brilliant. Just what I wanted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound and looks It is a high quality construct - Danish simplicity. I wanted a player with no frills and this was just the ticket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice little disc spinner. Although I was initially sent the wrong item, an exchange of emails quickly rectified this, and I was pleased to set up the Tangent CD II on my limited shelf space. I haven't had a CD player for a few years, preferring to stream stuff via various platforms, and the increase in sound quality was unexpectedly noticeable from the start. Five stars.

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!
