Summary: I made a mistake a few years ago by giving in and crossing over the "quality/convenience line", drank the Kool Aid and got an upper-mid-range Swiss Army Knife AVR. While the bells & whistles seemed great at the time, the bottom line was that I was really passing through very average sound from a lot of sources. The NAD T787 is at the opposite end of the spectrum.
Pros: Incredible Sound, Built like a tank, Intelligent Video design (eliminates double-processing), MDC upgrade options, more intuitive and flexible operation than expected, quality connections -- with so much clean power in reserve, is excellent in small or large rooms, at low or high volumes
Cons: not really a con, but actually seems even heavier than it is because the weight all on one side, so careful with racks/stands -- the headphone jack a bit disappointing, not much oomph compared to the rest of the unit -- more flexibility with Zones would have been a nice touch
Summary: Re: my criticism below about the headphone amp -- User error -- I missed the instruction about needing to switch to a preset which uses front speakers as Large, so I was missing out on the bass below the crossover, and my subs were merrily playing away, unheard :) -- the headphone amp is very good
Summary: Helt otroligt kraft i denna jämfört med min gamla NAD T753. Det var tydligt att mina Dynaudio högtalare behövde lite mer kraft. Det enda jag har att anmärka på är den lite dåliga radiomottagningen. Jämfört med den gamla receivern så har denna väldigt svårt att spela brusfritt och hittar inte svaga stationer alls. Kan väl hoppas det har med antennen att göra, skall labba lite med denna. Därav 9/10 i betyg.
