SHARON, MA, May 8, 2009 — NAD Electronics, the highly regarded manufacturer of high-performance audio/video components, introduces the T 747 and T 737 AV Receivers, further enhancing NAD’S reputation for offering the latest high definition features and performance at very competitive prices.

The T 747 and T 737 possess everything needed to form the centerpiece of a high-definition Home Theater. Both boast satisfyingly realistic audio, top-notch video, NAD’s highly refined user interface, numerous advanced features, and superb build quality. Unlike brands that inflate their power ratings to impress the unwary, NAD’s Full Disclosure Power ratings clearly spell out the receivers’ capabilities under real world conditions.

The T 747 AV Receiver can fill an average size room with extremely pleasing, accurate sound levels, at up to 60 watts/channel, without the harsh, muddled sound common among lesser AV receivers. All seven channels offer the same high performance using high-current discrete output devices.

The T 747 includes the newest lossless audio CODECs from Dolby and DTS, including TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio, so that even discs lacking TrueHD will benefit from the higher bit rates and discrete 7.1 channels supported by Dolby Digital Plus. An Auto Calibration function using a special microphone and test tone makes speaker set-up easy and highly accurate.

High quality AM and FM tuners offer 50 station presets, and an XM Ready socket supports clear access to optional subscription-based XM digital broadcasts. The T 747 also supports NAD’s optional IPD 2 Dock for iPod, allowing audio, video and still images stored on an iPod to play directly on an NAD Home Theater.

On the video side, the T 747 fully support signals up to 1080p resolution from HD set-top boxes and Blu-ray players, and includes 4 HDMI inputs with a repeater function. It’s capable of ‘upscaling’ older analog video formats to digital HDMI output, and standard definition signals up to HD to 1080p using award-winning onboard Faroudja DCDi technology.

The T 747 offers a second independent A/V zone along with all the connections needed to integrate the receiver with advanced control systems. Two remote controls are included, one for the primary listening zone and one for the remote zone. The main remote also controls other NAD components, simplifying system operation.

The T 737 AV Receiver uses a system of ‘virtual inputs’ that allows each user to perfectly customize its set-up. Select an input, name it, associate it with any video and audio source, analog or digital, and carry on until there’s an input for each source in the system. Unused inputs can be tucked away. Additional customization can be added for different speaker set-ups, levels, tone controls and surround modes.t737web1.jpg

The T 737 delivers 40 watts to each of seven channels. Its three surround modes automatically cater to multichannel-encoded DVDs using Dolby Digital EX and DTS ES, encoded two-channel recordings with Dolby ProLogic IIx and DTS Neo:6, and NAD’s own EARS and Stereo Enhanced modes, which are perfect for creating convincing surround sound from unencoded sources like CDs.

All seven channels offer the same high performance using high current discrete output devices. An Auto Calibration function using a special microphone and test tone makes speaker set-up easy and highly accurate.

High quality AM and FM tuners offer 50 station presets, and an XM Ready socket supports clear access to optional subscription-based XM digital broadcasts. The T 747 also supports NAD’s optional IPD 2 Dock for iPod, allowing audio, video and still images stored on an iPod to play directly on an NAD Home Theater.

Video quality is also first rate, whether the source is the Composite or S-Video or higher performing Component Video. HDMI signals are simply switched without any extraneous processing or loss of quality.

Both receivers use less than one watt for standby power consumption, in keeping with NAD’s green initiative, and no heavy metals or hazardous chemicals in their manufacture.

The T 747 and T 737 AV Receivers are available from authorized NAD dealers at suggested prices, respectively, of $1,299 and $799 (US MSRP).
