I had this conversation With AG:
Congrats on purchasing the Strada 2’s, A’Diva SE’s & TR-3D. The Strada 2’s and the A’Diva SE’s all should connect to the NAD AV receiver. The TR-3D should connect to the NAD via subwoofer interconnect. The NAD will control the crossover for the speakers and the sub. Make sure to select bypass on the back of the sub. It should sound excellent. Please contact me with any further questions.

Subject: Advice on speaker connection
I recently bought myself some of your excellent speakers.
My setup is 5.1, mains 2x Strada 2, Center and surround 3x A’Diva SE, Sub TR-3D. All are driven by a NAD T787.
I mostly stream from my NAS via an Oppo 105D, the NAD and Oppo are connected 3 ways (5.1, 2.0 and HDMI) to get most out of my sources, especially from the great DAC in the Oppo. In order of importance these would be my priorities:
1. Classical music, stereo (40%) & quadraphonic (10%)
2. TV (30%)
3. Movies (10%)
4. Anything else (10%)
In a general sense, would you advise me to directly the Strada 2’s to the receiver or would connecting them via the TR-3D be a better idea? The internet suggests driving mains separately in general seems to be the best suggestion your A’Diva SE booklet states a preference for driving them via the subwoofer.
I don’t understand the pro’s and con’s so a little help and explanation is really welcome.
Thanks in advance!
