NAD is releasing a new Blu-ray player in today's market, which is no slouch in the build quality arena.  The unit is housed in a steel chassis with a die-cast aluminum front panel, including vibration dampening feet.  Currently there is no word on the video scalers and DACs used in the player.

The unit has a 7.1 analog output, which bests most Blu-ray players containing only a 5.1 analog output.  The HDMI input and output support bitstream lossless DTS and Dolby formats.  The player can internally decode or output the bitstream audio.  The M56 also contains a USB 2.0 port for playback of music and photos.  There does not seem to be any support for DVD-Audio or SACD at this time.

The play is Profile 2.0 and supports BD-Java and BD-Live events.  The unit is available now from authorized dealers for a retail price of $1,999.
