The NAD T 557 is a high-end Blu-ray Disc player, released in late 2009. This player is a step up from the manufacturer’s NAD T 587, as the T 557 offers improved audio decoding with proprietary technology from NAD. However, this model remains in the middle of NAD’s product line-up, as the T 577 player offers additional functionality such as built-in Wi-Fi with video streaming and DivX HD support. The T 557 supports Blu-ray Profile 2.0, meaning users can watch online BD-Live video content over the built-in Ethernet port. Deep Color over HDMI and xvYCC extended color space are also supported, allowing for the best possible video reproduction. Additional features include a 24 fps mode for movies, and a USB port for media playback. The NAD T 557 is available in black or silver.
