NAD L53 DVD Receiver

NAD L53 stereo DVD/AV receiver


Hi-fi all-in-one systems are back in vogue, thanks in part to the so-called ?John Lewis customer'...

Excellent introduction to an A/V all-in-one with strong performance and superb value for money. Flexible, well made, and enough to keep users contented for years

Product Specifications

Many customers today are looking for a compact and simple alternative to "surround sound" in offices and other rooms where multiple speakers aren't necessary. There are many "bookshelf" systems on the market today, none of which can compare to the powerful audio performance of the NAD L53 and few of which also combine a DVD playback. Don't be fooled by its compact size, the L53 is a full-featured DVD player which derives its enveloping 2-channel sound through premium grade digital to analog converters and SRS (Sound Retrieval System) technology. Multimedia playback includes DVD, VCD, SVCD, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3, Jpeg and WMA playback. Additionally the L53 offers connectivity with virtually all audio and video types including Component, Composite and S-Video as well as digital audio including coaxial and optical. The built-in AM/FM receiver and learning remote control rounds out the package making it one of the best compact home entertainment values money can buy.
