Nova 73 HD


Set up, connect, and switch on. Anyone who chooses a Nova73 HD has clearly decided for cutting-edge technology, absolute serviceability and an easy-to-operate user interface. The HD technology offers everything you would expect from a modern router — 96kHz operation, Dolby-E compatibility, and clock-synchronised switching to video frames or internal DSP. But what makes the Nova73 HD really special is that all its features are deliberately designed to be easy to use — an enormous advantage both in day-to-day operation, during installation and maintenance.
