Summary: I've owned the T748V2 for only a short while but the set up of it and operation of it so far has been great and light years ahead of my prior receiver, though admittedly it was quite dated. I want to comment on the manual since that was listed as a negative or difficult from several other reviewers.
Summary: I did considerable researching before deciding on the NAD and after having it for a couple weeks I think it was a great choice. I was a little leery of the initial set up after reading other reviews but it was really quite easy once My brother and I started into it.
Summary: Well, Im on the fence here with the NAD T748v2 that I purchased for Christmas 4 weeks ago. It has everything that I want for the price I wanted which was: A Quality Unit with no-frills and great 5.1 Quality surround sound.
Pros: No-Frills, Easy Menu to follow and trouble shoot, great 5.1 Surround
Cons: Manual comes in CD which is unusual, (I ended up reprinting the whole thing on paper.) Sound switching between Sources isnt working correctly
Summary: Very pleased with NAD receiver. Love the simplicity of controls as well as the great audio. No issues with video switching. I have a 25 year old NAD 7000 receiver that still sounds wonderful for music. Highly recommend this receiver. Suggest spending the time to understand the features.
Pros: Sound. Simplicity. Function.
Cons: Some might complain about the low tech graphic interface but I could care less about that.
Summary: So far the unit has been excellent. I agree with the other reviewers the sound is superb. I thought the setup was relatively easy with the exception of the listening modes. The cd manual is confusing in that regard. If not for this I would have given 5 stars.
Pros: great sound, helpful easily reached tech support, clean look
Summary: After much research on a sound source for my home theater, I decided the NAD 748V2 fit the bill. I saw it's potential as a fabulous unit, however that potential may never be realized. Why? I can only get 2 of it's 4 HDMI sources to recognize my equipment.
Pros: Steady power throughout viewing. Wonderful natural sound, and ample bass through sub-woofer. Unit does not over-heat when use for several hours of music or movie viewing.
Excellent unit, but you better know what you're doing...

Summary: I'll start by saying I've got about 10 hours into setting this unit up and paying with it. I wanted a unit known for it's sound, and not it's bells and whistles. Documentation is worth about as much as the paper it's printed on - BUT, in all the receivers I researched before I bought this, and in...
Pros: Sounds awesome, looks "high end", and has everything one could want.
Cons: Documentation is written just a little too advanced for someone who hasn't been around audio equipment that much. You'll figure it out, just keep reading!
Summary: If you desire pure sound quality, then this a home theater receiver for you. My primary focus is on Blu-Ray and satellite TV sound quality. The 748V2 delivers such sound quality and is very powerful. It is driving 8 speakers and subwoofer and there is plenty of volume.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, especially HD sound and excellent video processing. I heard sounds when listening to a football game that I never heard before such as all the background noise that the microphones in the booth picks-up. Both amazing and annoying.
Cons: Set-up manual and menu is cumbersome to navigate and I had to call Crutchfield a couple of times for assistance. Crutchfield was able to resolve my issues. Be prepared for center channel sound that has no bass as it direct without any enhancements; it may sound like too much treble at first.
Summary: Amazing sound and simple setup however the digital optical audio inputs do not work. My old receiver works and this one doesn't. After long conversations with support the issue was never resolved.
