NAD Electronics announced the availability of the NAD T 748, an affordable surround sound a/v receiver that claims to put performance and simplicity first. The T 748 provides support for up to seven channels of all the latest surround sound formats and digital video technology, including 3D video.
The T 748 delivers 3D video at resolutions up to 1080p, as well as analog video, Audio Return Channel (ARC), and Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) are all supported on HDMI for simple integration with your digital video devices.
Popular surround sound formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio, are decoded using the latest generation of high-speed DSP. Stereo source material can be converted to surround sound using the company’s EARS surround.
NAD has designed a simple user interface that is both flexible but very easy to use. Each source component retains the same custom settings every time it is selected for viewing, and there are no ’empty inputs’. In addition, five AV Presets allow custom setups for different types of program material (drama, action, musical, etc.) tailoring the performance to the owner’s taste.
The T 748 can be customized for various systems or material (Blu-ray player, action movie, music, gaming, etc.) with specific speaker settings and surround modes.
The T 748 is available now with a $900 MSRP.
