The New NAD T765 HD is a versatile 7.1-channel A/V surround receiver that supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding
The NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver offers remarkable performance and flexibility in a compact and simple to operate package. This multi-channel powerhouse will bring your favourite music and movies to life in your home entertainment room with an absolute minimum of fuss and a maximum of pure enjoyment.
The NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver is heir to many generations of award winning NAD designs. This exceptional pedigree is evident in both the look and the feel of the NAD T765, and it is unmistakable the moment you listen. It is NAD's insistence on creating products with remarkable sound quality at sensible prices that has made NAD the first choice among the most knowledgeable listeners from around the world. NAD's "Music First" philosophy dictates that we endow our Surround Sound products with the same warm involving sound quality that makes music listening so rewarding with our stereo components. This stands in stark contrast to our competitors who view Surround Sound components primarily from a "content" point of view, with sound quality far down the list of priorities. Yet the NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver is second to none in terms of flexibility and up-to-the-minute digital technology.
Today's advanced Surround Sound receivers require quality in the digital decoding stages, the video processing section, and in the power amplifier design for the best overall performance. The T765 is an excellent example of the NAD Design Team's expertise in all three areas. Not only that, but we have made many ergonomic refinements to simplify operation and make it more enjoyable to get all the performance this magnificent receiver is capable of delivering.
Using the latest 32 bit Dual Core Floating Point DSP technology, NAD was able to include the expected surround formats from Dolby and DTS, as well as including NAD's own highly regarded music surround mode; EARS. Unlike, the typical artificially enhanced DSP modes like "Club", "Stadium", and "Church", EARS uses DSP technology to extract the natural ambience of the recording. This is redirected to the surround channels to create natural surround sound from any 2 channel source. This induces a warm natural reverberant effect without the artificial "BOING" of artificial reverb. The surround mode of the source material is automatically detected via the digital inputs of the NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver, and the "highest" or most advanced form of decoding is switched in. Conversion of the encoded digital bitstream is performed with high resolution and extremely linear Burr-Brown 24 bit/192kHz D/A Converters carefully selected for their performance capabilities. The T765 uses five two-channel DACs rather than the usual single 8 channel DAC favored by many of today's surround sound receivers. We have found that the sonic performance of the two-channel DACs used in a dual differential mode, is well worth the extra cost of this configuration.
NAD's reputation for producing power amplifiers that are both potent and musical is upheld in fine manner with the T765. Boasting a minimum of 80 watts continuous power per channel, the NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver can easily fill a room with lifelike sound levels. Credit for the sound of NAD's components rests squarely with our unique design approach and our experienced and very talented design team. Most companies design their products to a technical specification and a price point. While this sounds logical enough, it does not address the way the product will actually be used by the eventual owner. You don't listen to specifications; you listen to music and sound. While NAD products exhibit excellent technical measurements, we have relied on our own ears and listening experience to determine the final design of our products. Because of our unique design approach, NAD's sound is simply more "real" sounding, adding enjoyment and excitement to your favourite films and music recordings.
The NAD T765HD AV Surround Receiver has all the flexibility required to serve as the command center for even the most sophisticated Home Theater and multiroom systems. A full suite of video switching caters to all the popular video formats (HDMI, Component Video, S-Video, and Composite Video). Digital inputs (including a handy front panel input) and outputs are available in both coaxial and optical formats to make it easy to attach all your digital sources for playback and recording.
