NAD T557 Blu-Ray Disc Player
NAD does it again with
the new lower cost T 557 Blu-ray Player. Experience NAD's renown sound
quality in a world class Blu-ray player.
Blu-ray is the latest version of the popular 5 optical disc format
that began with the CD. Blu-ray was made possible by the development
of a practical violet laser whose light wavelength is shorter than the
red lasers used by CD and DVD players. This allows for a more focused
spot that can read smaller and more densely packed pits that generate
the "digital 1s and 0s" that represent the picture and sound
that is then decoded by the player for viewing.
Blu-ray Disc has over 5 times the data capacity of DVD. HD programs
are protected by multiple layers of DRM (Digital Rights Management or
'Copy Protection') and can only be transmitted from Player to TV Display
by the encrypted HDMI interface.
High Definition playback requires that the entire signal path be capable
of digital bandwidth of 150 Megahertz. This means you'll need the very
latest TV and AV Receiver as well as Category 2 HDMI cables. Be sure
the entire system supports "1080p". Get it all right and the
result is stunning... especially on screen sizes 50 and larger!
