NAD Unveils New Entry-Level DVD/CD Player with HDMI compatibility


NAD’s most affordable DVD/CD Player is compatible with all 2-channel DVD and CD formats including DVD-Audio

CEDIA EXPO 2006, DENVER, CO., Sept. 14, 2006 – NAD, the highly regarded manufacturer of high-performance audio components, further expands their Home Theater products with the affordable T 515 DVD/CD Player with HDMI compatibility.

Audio performance has always been the hallmark of NAD components and that is what sets their DVD players apart from the competition. While some manufacturers seem to be giving away their DVD players at prices well below $100 it’s expected that certain performance corners be cut. However, NAD never compromises performance over price, especially when it comes to audio. That is why the T 515 makes for an exceptional CD player in addition to providing state-of-the-art video performance. The T 515 provides full support for all the new CD and DVD formats including DVD-Video, DivX and DVD-Audio (2-channel only) and is compatible with all current blank media formats.

Both MP-3 and WMA decoding is reproduced using the same 24 bit, 192kHz DACs and associated circuitry for CD playback ensuring the sound quality of these highly compressed sound files is far superior to the performance heard on media players or computers. Bass is full and tight, mids and highs are detailed and smooth with a stereo image that has depth and scale. And if it can do that with compressed files, just think what it will do with standard CDs and 2-channel DVD-Audio discs.

The T 515 supports DTS and Dolby Digital playback. Keeping signal paths short and direct to minimize any interference, the 6 x 14-bit Video DAC running at 108MHz is capable of reproducing images with extremely vivid colors. The T 515 includes an HDMI with HDCP encryption output, which can transmit encrypted picture data at rates up to 5 gbps second (gbps). This allows direct transmission of uncompressed HD video and audio in a pure digital format.

Standard 480i and 576i (480/576 lines interlaced picture) can be “upsampled” to resolutions as high as 1080i for use with today’s HD projectors and flat panel displays that offer HDMI w/ HDCP inputs.

The T 515 provides three additional video connections (Composite, S-Video and Component) aside from HDMI and three audio connection options (Analog RCA, Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical-Toslink), ensuring complete compatibility with all current Home Theater equipment.

The T 515 offers a wide range of features such as Multi-Angle*; Multi-Sound*; Multi-Subtitle*; Frame; Zoom and Repeat. The Frame Advance feature advances the picture one frame at a time and the 6 step Zoom function highlights and enlarges a particular area of the frame. All features are easily accessed with the supplied remote control.

The T 515 DVD/CD Player will sell for a suggested retail price of $399 and will ship in 4th Qtr. ’06. The T 515 can be seen with all the other new NAD products in Booth #122 at the Colorado Convention Center during the CEDIA EXPO 2006.
