NAD Announces T 778 A/V Receiver (2019 Flagship)

The NAD T 778 9-channel A/V receiver is designed to please the most demanding audiophiles and videophiles.

Home Theater Receiver for Audiophiles

NAD Electronics just announced a new flagship A/V Receiver, the T 778. This $2999 9-channel AVR is designed to please the most demanding audiophiles and videophiles. It features 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 9 X 100W FTC and 9 x 80W 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 add lifelike realism, drama and excitement to all your music and movies.

A low profile 3U rack-mount chassis and TFT touch display combine with certified driver support for all major control systems to make the T 778 the perfect choice for advanced custom home theatres. The T 778 is second-to-none in terms of flexibility and up-to-the-minute digital technology.

Only NAD offers Modular Design Construction (MDC), the company’s proven method for preventing premature obsolescence. 7.1.4 Dolby® Atmos™, DTS® Master Audio combine with Dirac Live™ room correction to deliver hyper-realism that captures every dimension of a performance. Add bit-perfect 4K UHD video pass-through and the T 778 delivers the most accurate sound and image experience you’ve ever had. Musical performance is outstanding with High Res Multi-room streaming via BluOS.

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 maximizes 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.

“The T 778 packages that sound quality with the most compelling digital technologies such as BluOS, MQA, Bluetooth aptX HD, and Dirac Live in a user-friendly format,” commented Greg Stidsen, NAD’s Chief Technology Officer. “NAD firmly believes that there are many people for whom music will always come first. With NAD’s reputation for high value/high performance, it was apparent that the T 778 would have to please the most demanding Audiophiles and Videophiles. MDC then helps protect their investment for years to come.”
