Nakamichi DVD 15 Multiple DVD Players

DVD 15

Nakamichi invented it...Nakamichi perfected it...and now it is available to videophiles in the Nakamichi DVD-15 DVD Changer. What is it? Why, the world-renowned MusicBank disc-stocking mechanism! MusicBank stores and plays five DVDs or CDs in whatever order you wish. It occupies less space than a carousel changer, is more convenient and precise than a magazine changer and faster acting than either. Nothing touches the playing surface of the disc so MusicBank is safe and reliable. Operation is intuitive; discs are loaded into the stocking mechanism through a simple slot. MusicBank then stores the discs on an internal elevator so they're available for quick automated loading into the player.

The DVD-15 uses a selectable-wavelength twin-focus laser head that can read just about any optical disc on the market - CD-R included! Of course, the DVD-15 also handles commercial CDs, video CDs, and single-and double-layer DVDs.

Strength:

High resolution picture quality. Loads cd's or dvd's fast. Smooth changer operation. Built well and solid. Not a bunch of stupid bells and whistles, just the important stuff.

Weakness:

Many receivers' universal remotes won't control this unit. Movies sometimes pause briefly in the middle, layer change? The neighbors.

So far so good. I have had the DVD-15 for about 7 months now. This is my first DVD player, and I like it a lot. I have owned Nakamichi cassette decks in the past, and have loved Nakamichi ever since. The build quality of this machine is of true Nakamichi fashion. This unit has it's own Dolby Digital decoder, so if you have a cheaper receiver with 6 channel input, you could use the higher quality decoder of this unit. Has optical out, coaxial out, component video out, and s-video out. I hear this machine's retail price is $1200.00, but you can get it cheaper online. Here's some info on my setup: my receiver is a Denon AVR-1802, Cerwin Vega 15" main drivers, DCM front and down firing twin 12" sub's, DCM center, and Infinity surrounds. Sound and picture quality are awesome, sounds like a big theater. I don't think you could go wrong with this unit, you can trust Nakamichi's reputation. It's even made in Japan, too.

Strength:

Sound and Audio are on the top of the charts, both are diffinately up to the audiophile standard.

Weakness:

Just a little hot on top, not too bad.

I purchased this DVD at an excellent price from a dealer selling goods on ebay. I must say that it performs wonderfully. The Picture quality is excellent, and the 5.1 decoding for the audio is definately up to par. The "MusicBank" system is also a very big plus, and not to mention the disc changing speeds and spin up times. Best loading time versus any multidisc storing DVD player I've encountered or tested. It does however run a little hot on top, but it isnt like a grill or anything, about the same as other players. All in all you will still get your moneys worth paying retail for it. I've seen prices around $800 on the net and I would diffinately recommend getting this DVD Player.

Similar Products Used: I tested this player vs. Pioneer Elite's and Toshiba's best with my friends.
