NAD T757 7.1 A/V Receiver

Introduction to the NAD T757 Receiver

Like most people I have some pet peeves. When I shop for televisions, I am always hoping to find one without speakers. I have a dedicated theater with speakers and electronics that are leaps and bounds ahead of what I could possibly get in a TV. I don't need speakers; I'll never turn them on. I don't want them! Simply having them adds cost, complexity, and size to my TV. I don't want to pay for what I won't use! Give me the best picture for the buck possible so I can a get real monster of a TV so I really feel like I am in a theater. OK, deep breath – rant over. But the reason I bring this up is that I think the folks over at NAD would have been nodding as they read my rant.

NAD, started as New Acoustic Dimension back in 1972, has a reputation for offering premium performance in their gear at attractive prices. They do this by focusing on getting the core features on each of their products absolutely correct. They do not throw in doodads that do not contribute to the performance of the product. This review will look at how this philosophy was applied to one of their latest receivers, the NAD T 757.
