But most notable about the NX509 is its media flexibility. Unlike the NX409, it not only handles DVD/CD videos & music, but it is 100% compatible with MP3s, WMAs, AACs, and even DivX. This isn’t even including its inputs/outputs, per which users can hookup an iPod for video playback (CCA723 cable required) and an external MP3 player for music playback (USB). Note also that this device delivers higher-quality audio precision; it’s equipped with a 3-band parametric equalizer AND digital compression technology.
