NAD T 747 A/V Receiver

510nad
True, NAD isn’t the first name that you think of in connection with surround electronics. Its well-known two-channel pedigree is almost a liability in our neck of the woods. But the T 747 prioritizes what a home theater listener really needs. Chiefly, it delivers impeccable amplification that can tell a cinematic story and weave a musical spell. The NAD’s one serious omission, largely for movie listening, is one of the new low-volume listening modes. However, in practice, the sound was so sweet that I didn’t fiddle with the master volume except in extreme cases. For music, and with speakers of appropriate sensitivity, this product does the job like a master. Pull your socks up and give it a listen.

NAD C 165BEE and C 275BEE

NADC165BEEnC275BEE

NAD C 165BEE / C 275BEE – “If sonic muscularity and outright scale are important to you, buy this NAD pairing. We can’t think of another amplifier at this price level that delivers so much authority with such ease”.

FOR

Sonic muscle, authority and scale; [good] feature list; well-judged presentation.

VERDICT

A likeable brute of an amplifier. For those who want plenty of sonic muscle without having to sacrifice subtlety too much.
