The multinational company had waited long before it ventured into the realm of the blue laser. You comforted fans for months on the site on the grounds that new technologies would have to prove themselves before they are likely to move into a NAD player.

But when you wanted to, give up almost all hope to see beyond the Japanese and Korean corporations even adorn a purebred HiFi name on a Blu-ray player NAD the T 587.Die was surprise also for the national distributor surprised so big, that it came to a few misunderstandings in the equipment list. As analog multichannel outputs and a DTS-HD Master decoder built-in were announced. Indeed, shows slightly less luxurious T 587 in his graphitgrauen robe. The analogue multi-channel output conspicuous by absence, and the note “DTS-HD Advanced Digital Out” reveals Insider that 587 can by no means present a real decoder of T; only the DTS core contained in the DTS-HD Master stream is decoded and converted if necessary in PCM – but of course data reduced. Who wants to experience the soundtrack uncompromisingly high resolution, so desperately needs an AV receiver, which decodes the incoming via HDMI stream. The NAD not necessarily resembling an audiophile Super player at first glance. The scheduled 1400 euro noticeable in a chic glossy armor nor in a particularly intricate inner workings. Of course, the device (like almost all other to players with blue laser) is built somewhere in Asia. Compared with the almost organic interior of the pioneer PDB LX__91 or the Sony BDP S_5000_ES NAD acts however strange empty. But the companies typical blue boards give an idea that maybe the engineers from the West had the finger in the game. And not every airy built Player do without as the T 587 on an annoying fan.

The large, protected by a fixed bonded heat sink processor undetected though, but should be a chip of Marvell video professionals according to NAD. This takes as the heart of the player to nearly all relevant functions – the processing of the video signal via the scaling and de-interlacing up to the decoding of all sound formats (up to the aforementioned DTS-HD) and even the control of network traffic. With an Internet connection can the T 587 one of its trump cards play out: the Blu-ray profile 2.0, so the ability to download bonus material for appropriately labeled, high-definition discs from the Web. “BD-Live” is called this desired by many, but still not really widely used option. In addition, the NAD is a Sprint star. Just ten seconds he needed to read a Blu-ray disc. Ver offset with the sleepy competition he acts like Olympic champion Usaine bolt on speed. This also applies to the lightning-fast response to the remote control or the hurtig sliding out drive tray. Along with the clearly structured menu shows: Here you should can lose no time, but just enjoy.
