Bottom Line:   
If you are the least concerned with good sound and on a budget, this player or it's corresponding successor should be on your shortlist.

Plays music with fine musicality, good sense of room/airyness as well as autorative lows.

Hook this up with either the C352 or a fine tube amplifier to bring out the best.

Picture quality via the progressive component cables is also impressive for this price range with "bang-for-the-buck" picture quality and natural colours.

I just purchased a Panasonic DVD-S99 that is supposed to be "top-of-the-range" for Panasonic. It was purchased because I'm planning to buy a HD-ready LCD soon and thus needed a player with the HDMI out. BUT the Panasonic was totally "floored" compared to the NAD in the sound department. The Panasonic sounded flat, lifeless and compressed compared to the NAD. All I can say is that if this is the best the Panasonic engineers can come up with in the sound department - then I feel sorry for them...

It was a true relief to go back to the NAD sound when playing CD's or mp3's (Surprisingly the S99 did not accept mp3's on DVD either, something that the NAD accepts.)

Bottom Line:   
The NAD 514 DVD/CD Player just like all NAD products is awesome. They are truly a high-end product maker that produces what Audophiles like myself like. Theres always better products, but when it comes to true build, sound, and user quality, NAD is hard to beat in any of the products they maker. Point Blank!

Bottom Line:   
So far - awesome. Bought it refurbished and have had no problems. This is replacing an old Sony. I saw that most of the new Sonys are getting bad reviews or that they only reccomend viewing on fixed pixel TVs using digital connection (HDMI). That means that Sony is putting no effort into their analog outputs - even component. So I went with a good name at a reasonable price. I will update as I go through my DVD collection. Only complaint is the layout of the remote - frequently used buttons are at the very bottom and the search and seek buttons are up and down style.
