Highly affordable dvd player improves performance and playback capabilities
NAD introduced the new T 514 DVD Player their most affordable progressive-scan player during CES 2005 in Las Vegas.
The new entry level T 514 provides audiophile performance supporting up to five channels capable of reproducing 24-bit, 96kHz audio resolution. It supports most popular disc formats, including MP-3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), JPEG and Kodak Picture CD. The DVD-R recordable DVD format is also fully supported. Other DVD recording formats, such as DVD+R and DVD-RAM, may also play properly, depending on which DVD Recorder and blank media are used.
The new slim chassis of the T 514 is stylish and attractive, a perfect partner to one of NAD’s high performance A/V Receivers. It offers progressive scan with 3:2 pull down (film detection mode) via the Component Video outputs (Y, Cr, Cb) for the highest resolution with today’s high-end digital video monitors and projectors. The 4×10-bit, 54MHz Video DACs keep signal paths short and direct to minimize interference and are capable of reproducing the finest picture details, as well as true blacks and vivid colors.
The player features three video connection options — component, S-Video and composite — and four for audio — coax, optical, 5.1 analog and stereo analog — assuring complete compatibility with any Home Theater set-up supporting all popular surround formats.
For fast and efficient integration into the most demanding whole-house installations, NAD provides 12V triggers for remote on-off switching. Additionally, the T 514 offers a broad array of capabilities, including Multi-Angle*, Multi-Sound*, Multi-Subtitle*, Frame, 100x Zoom, Marker Search, Smooth Scan, Slow Motion, and Repeat. All these functions can be easily accessed with the supplied remote control.
The T 514 will sell for a suggested retail price of $299 and is currently shipping.
