AV Receiver NAD T 775

In surround, even in HD, it seemed the NAD T 775 (3250 EUR) with his tendency to clean almost to exaggerate. As a result, he was somewhat simpler than the brighter Denon.

  2. Data sheet

In principle, also NAD, similar to the Harman, asked once to configure its inputs. Succeed, because the device display is refusing to provide meaningful information from the outset only with the help of a monitor, which makes accessible the simple control runes white on blue. Because the NAD as the Harman or not – can link the inputs – “Defeat” presets with DSP options, control is worth here too.

Really much there but on the T 775 can’t be adjusted. It also the new plug-in modules do not change much in the 200 and 100 VM. With them, NAD brought his for about a year sold Multicultural updated, now including HD decoder, Audyssey auto setup and video conversion. T-775 users who buy module combo for 750 euro, may there is a plug-in module called VM 200, who works with a professional Sigma VXP video processor for 200 euro charge. In contrast to the simpler ADV 7802 in the VM 100 de-interlaced and scaled this then also HDMI signals.

More important in the eyes of the tester: that the NAD all channels (including those for the adjoining rooms) with fine individual PCM 1791 D/A converts and that its seven amplifiers with power-drive technology proven in all amplifiers work fan frozen in case of emergency (C 375 BEE 6/09).

ERGO Chiseled, molded, fine was the great-sounding at radio NAD an incredibly pure, by ore-strong bass CD done out – also where AVR of 4810 from Denon fogged have this or that.

In surround, even in HD, it seemed almost to exaggerate the NAD with its propensity to cleanliness. As a result, he was somewhat simpler than the brighter Denon. Who takes stereo in the shields and only occasionally Surroundet, but knows how he has to decide.

Review
Short conclusion With its particularly strong power-drive power amplifiers, the NAD occupies a special position. For many fans it makes up for its facilities poverty by faves surround and excellent CD sound.
