For what it's worth, I finally made my decision and picked up a NAD t763 this weekend. While some things could be a little clearer in the documentation, setting it up went pretty smoothly. I got all my wiring switched over in short order and was up and running. It sounded great and none--repeat NONE--of the problems that many have commented on here. The next day I spent the extra time with my sound meter to get things calibrated, and all I can say is WOW! What a sweet machine! Definitely the right choice for me and my listening tastes. Rest assured that not all NADs have hum, hiss and pops. As a lurker here, it was very helpful to hear all of the insights shared on this site while making my decision. Thanks to all.
Hey Craig,My 763 was working great until I switched surround formats from DTS to DD 5.1.The surrounds would quit working.If I shutdown and repowered they would work again.Everything else worked great and the sound was excellent with no hiss or hum.It's being shipped back today and hopefully a new one will be on the way.Enjoy your new toy.
Craig, What speakers are you using ? It'll help other 'lurkers' like me who are torn between the T753 or 763 and the Marantz 7400.
Hi dabluz ,
I got the same thing on my T763, a loud pop sound when I switched from DD to DTS the first time and only that single time. I just turn it off and then back on again and sins then I haven't have any problem at all with my T763.
I think you can avoid this problem if you do a "REBOOT" command as soon as you turn on your new T7x3 receiver.
