NAD T533 DVD-player

To get quite a long time NAD happen to be renowned for 2 reasons: they make excellent sounding sound products plus they've kept basically the same "battleship grey" appearance to the majority of the products for quite some time now. This is my first actual look in an NAD merchandise, and I'd welcome it back after having it within my house for the previous couple of weeks.

The NAD T533 DVD player is in a demanding market section. It is not expensive enough to be high end, but definitely not in the supermarket mount that is inexpensive either. At $699 it is not unlikely to appeal to those who will willingly cover a little premium because of it and favor brand recognition.

For outputting an RGB video signal the T533 additionally contains a scart connection. This attribute can allow it to be incredibly easy for owners of European TVs, which favour Scart connectors compared to the component inputs of Japanese TV makers.

The T533 styling is quite much in line with the conventional battleship grey of NAD, with all buttons on the front fascia. There's a justification by some that if it isn't huge and it isn't heavy, then it can not be any good.

Warm tones

NAD have for a very long time been well respected for the musicality of the parts as mentioned before, as well as the T533 is not any exclusion. I used to be impressed with all the warm tone the DVD player created although left to the finish of my testing.

Music stayed simple to listen also and yet had great dynamics, enough to let me leave away the subwoofer. Bass was tight and completely expanded, as well as the highs of Sarah Brightman at high volume did not turn horrible. I discovered no actual favourite and examined most types of music. This must be a great thing as it is going to fit in with the preferences of anyone.

The sound from DVDs was remarkable as CD playback. Musical scores seemed verdant and rich with a lot of dynamic expansion, voice tones were clear and crash of action movies, the obligatory whiz, bang carried lots of impact.

One oddity that was little, was that although this unit is progressive scan capable, it's for NTSC only, PAL pictures are interlaced. Weird to get a nation whose native video format is PAL but aside from that, for video performance I located the T533 to be reasonable. The image presented all the detail anticipated from DVD, colours were energetic and shadow detail was okay (even the tent scene in Gladiator). It'd a "me too" feel to the graphic, nothing fundamentally wrong, only not "wow".

As mentioned previously, the NAD T533 is in a price bracket that is rough. Based entirely on its DVD sound performance or its video performance, I'd be fighting to advocate this over a player at the price that is doublle from a lot of the opponents. Nevertheless, throw to the mix the extra price unexpectedly appears not only justifiable, as well as the NAD's top-notch CD playback operation, but in addition a rewarding investment.

In case you spend any quantity of time listening to CD's through the one system (lets face it, few can afford the fee or space of two different amusement systems) and do not need to go down the route of a different CD/DVD player (again price and/or space constraints) subsequently demo one of these players as a genuinely workable all in one option.
