VISO Award Roundup
April 19, 2009
Some of the world's most influential consumer-electronics/audio-visual publications have given awards to the VISO Family of products. There where so many we decided to compile them in one easily accessible place.
The NAD VISO FIVE DVD/CD Surround Sound Receiver received a stunningly positive Five-Star review in What Hi-fi? Sound and Vision. After that, it went from strength to strength and received the distinction of the "Best home cinema system £750+" in the latest edition of the magazine.
"The unit is solidly constructed, and everything from the front panel controls to the chunky remote handset has the feel of something designed to last years." - NAD VISO FIVE, What Hi fi? Sound and Vision, Nov 2008

"No disrespect intended but all-in-one-components can be self-serving bummers. The NAD VISO TWO integrated DVD-receiver is the rare exception. To begin with, it's drop dead gorgeous. And ergonomically everything seems to fall to hand, including a good remote control. Its features set doesn't miss a trick from the discrete amplifier output stages, the progressive-scan DVD player (with upsampling 1080i via HDMI output) to provisions for an XM module or iPod docking station or headphones. It even offers the hi resolution DVD-Audio format. The two-channel version (there's a five channel one as well) sports 50Wpc of NAD's conservatively rated power. Sonically the VISO TWO hews to the NAD philosophy of maintaining tonal accuracy tempered with a mellow character near the frequency extremes. Dynamics and transient speed are top-notch. And it's never less then excellent at capturing the life and energy of music in all its many formats. Suddenly saving space doesn't seem lake a sacrifice."
The Award-Winning NAD VISO FIVE DVD/CD Surround Sound Receiver wins a coveted 'Best-Buy' honour in the latest edition of Home Cinema Choice, the UK's leading home entertainment magazine. "NAD VISO FIVE ...a superior system solution"
"The FIVE is beautifully-built and simple to install. If you want a high-quality introduction to DVD-Based home cinema, and are seeking a superior alternative to a complete system that arrives in one carton, then this NAD product might just hit your target ... The VISO FIVE has a greatly-reduced footprint, genuine hi-fi credibility, and unexpectedly punches above its weight to deliver a most satisfactory performance." - NAD VISO FIVE, Home Cinema Choice, Feb. 2008
NAD VISO FIVE DVD/CD Surround Sound Receiver also won another award this time from one of Russia's most respected Audio Video Magazines DVDXPERT.
