 "The Verdict"

"The new NAD T778 distinguishes itself with a refined sonic character, one that’s equally at home dishing out the sonic goodies as it is with more subtle fare. It has more than enough dynamics to create an expansive home theatre experience. At the same time, the ability to deliver effects with pinpoint precision ensures the action’s delivered not only with a sense of impact but credibility. Coupled with its modest dimensions and downright cool styling, this box brings flagship performance to a range of spaces which may have dictated a compromise in the past. Highly recommended, then."

 NAD Electronics T 778 Reference AV Receiver Review

"Value for money is what makes NAD stand out from the crowd, and that doesn’t mean dozens of superfluous functions, gizmos and gadgets. Instead, the company has always offered a measure of useful features allied to fine sound and decent but understated build quality."

"The T778 is a gutsy AV receiver that’s equally at home dishing out the sonic mayhem of action blockbusters, as it is revealing the nuances of subtler fare. Pinpoint location of effects gives the T778 a tightly focused soundstage."

BluOS Enabled 4K Ultra HD Receiver with Immersive Sound

NAD's reference Audio Video Receiver (AVR) is a cutting-edge powerhouse for state of the art music and home theatre. Well known for their high value/ high performance reputation in the AVR category, NAD's reference model builds on that legacy with an expansion of unwavering philosophy of real-world performance, simplicity of operation, and future upgradeability.

Efficient Distortion-free Amplification

The T 778 features the latest developments in NAD's Hybrid Digital technology to create 9 high current/high power channels of amplification with improved efficiency. Designed with NAD's full disclosure approach to power ratings, the NAD AVR conservatively delivers 140W FTC and 9 x 85W FDP, all channels driven at rated distortion. For flexibility, the amp channels are configurable to be used for surround or second zone audio. The silent black background and explosive dynamics afforded by this amplifier technology adds lifelike realism, drama and excitement to all your music and movies.

Undistort Your Listening Room

DIRAC Live room correction is now featured and offers a remarkable increase in fidelity by correcting both frequency response and time domain impulse response. When properly calibrated, DIRAC Live improves clarity, naturalness, and pinpoint imaging.


Flexible Setup 

The latest HDMI features, including HDCP 2.2, 4:4:4 color resolution, High Dynamic Range and Dolby Vision video support, plus CEC/ARC, are all included. Digital inputs and outputs are available in both coaxial and optical formats to make it easy to attach all your digital sources. Digital inputs are converted to analogue for use in Zone 2 with independent source selection and volume control. With BluOS™ it is also easy to add more speakers for listening to music in additional rooms. IR repeaters, 12V triggers to automatically switch amplifiers on and off, and an RS-232 data port makes it easy to connect to highly advanced automated control systems, such as Crestron and Control4. Thoughtful features like discrete On and Off codes, direct access to inputs and music presets facilitates the integration of the T 778 into elaborate remote-control systems.

Complete and Compact

As with all NAD components, the company's latest offering continues their "simple is better" design philosophy. This sensible approach contributes to ease of use and maximising performance where it counts. A perfect example is the striking new touch screen and ergonomic refinements that simplify operation and ease of access. The T 778 features NAD's legendary sound quality along with complete compatibility with all the latest features and formats, to ensure lifelike music and movie enjoyment.
