Summary: Now that I've had the T 758 for three weeks and have got it all dialed in I can tell it's a great choice. I use it mainly for listening to music. It's easy on the ears and crystal clear with no distortion even at higher volumes. Several listening modes and tone controls offer enough versatility to adjust for preferences from any source. Highs from trumpets or Hammond B3s are warm and not blaring. It also excels in its secondary role as home theater.
Pros: Versatile and powerful. Upgradeable. Crystal clear sound reproduction. Plenty of DSP options.
Cons: Weighs as much as a Buick Skylark. Audyssey took several attempts to get right. Does require some know-how to operate, but not too hard.
Summary: Replaced a recently purchased T-748V2. The sound was better due to better build, higher wattage and, of course, higher price. Awesome receiver in every respect. Audyssey did not work after 4 attempts. Got results like 'Check Type' and 'Check Polarity'. It gave me the Check Polarity on four different speakers. One at each attempt. Checked polarity. Positive to positive, negative to negative. Not sure about 'Type'. Gave up.
Summary: Love it sound is very good abandoned a recent Denon due to the sound just didn't cut it in my opinion now I get powerful bass and clear true to life sounds pretty awesome this thing is a beast 33.9 lb weight means I can use it to work out if I want... I've had NADs for years they're the best.
Pros: Like the lack of tons of buttons on front of unit looks clean and simple. No frills just power and great sound. It has listening mode options which allow for changes to the sound tho haven't experimented too much with them yet. Main problem I'm having is it may blow the walls off my place when I crank it up I'll not make that a con.... Still building my system I don't even have a sub yet but it's still powerful enough sans sub I've had to tone down the bass in control...
Cons: Only con is Audyssey. I'm 100% sure I was in phase with the speakers. Audyssey claimed I wasn't. This is same problem I had with Denon Audyssey setup. Audyssey seems to not have a handle on determining who's in phase so technically not solely an NAD issue but since NAD has chosen to include the Audyssey I'll list it as a negative.
Summary: I purchased this receiver several months ago, and I'm 100% pleased. I had never heard of NAD beforehand, but I became aware through various av forums and Crutchfield's website. Sound: Very clear. It made a vast improvement to my crappy speakers. I listen to rock, classical and jazz. Lots of detail that was previously missing. I haven't scratched the surface of what this thing can do. I need better speakers.
Pros: Sound, power, simplicity and price.
Cons: None really. If you are trying to get a good system and are starting with this receiver, just know that it will cost a lot more to achieve the sound you desire. You'll want good speakers next, so think about your overall budget. Maybe you end up with a less expensive receiver that's perfectly fine and much better than what you currently have.
Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for a Yamaha RX-V3900 which died after only 4 years. WOW - What a difference !! The NAD T-758 has the cleanest sound I have heard. I listen to mostly classical and jazz and the quality is excellent, especially the mid-range. It also excels watching the TV through it. I love it. Great customer service, both from Crutchfield and NAD.
Pros: Superb quality Easy set up Not loaded up with unneeded "bells & whistles"
Summary: Great A/V receiver. Compared to my last two receivers, Onkyo and Denon, this unit is exceptional. Lows are more pronounced, the midrange, (vocals & movie dialog) is just superb and the highs sweet, not bright! The surround sound is so much more detailed and content rich. In fact I now hear detail in both movies and music CD's that I was missing perviously. Perfect fit with the Definitive Technology 8040ST floor standing speakers.
Pros: Great, great sound, quality built, easy setup and priced right.
Cons: The auto speaker set up doesn't work after several attempts. Not a big deal for me as Definitive Technology recommends a manual set up.
