Hello everyone,

 

I own a Denon 2312, driving Jamo floor standing speakers. I wanted to upgrade my receiver. and I am considering the NAD T748 after reading several good reviews about it and it's high audio quality.

 

I don't need all the HDMI inputs the Denon has, as I have only BD Player, AppleTV and SAT TV, so the 4 inputs of the NAD are enough. 

 

Does anyone have experience with the NAD T748? Would it be a real upgrade from my 2312?

 

Tks in advance.

Thomaz

Don't know if the NAD has any room correction so its hard to say. Are the Jamo towers 4ohm speakers?

If so, the NAD might be better with 4 ohm loads.

I'm going to try and revive this thread, because I have essentially the same question. I have a 2312ci powering Energy Veritas 6.2s and a Hsu Research STF-2 for music (I always use Direct for music listening). In the same room, I have 3 in wall speakers below a TV that basically serves as a casual 3.1 system for watching TV. I need the assignable rear channels to power the V6.2s, and I need Zone 2 out for an external amp that powers outdoor speakers. I understand that the NAD T748v2 has both of these functions. I do not need Audyssey in this room. My main concern for this room is quality 2.1 sound from the V6.2s. I am redoing a second room for 5.1 and could move the 2312ci to that room. My question is, would I notice a big difference in sound quality from 2.1 setup if I switch to the NAD? If so, I'll go that route; if not, I'll probably get a Denon X2000 for the new 5.1 system I'm putting in a different room. The price difference is $200 between the X2000 and T748.

Beware of the nad 748. I did some research and found it to be bug ridden, low powered and no eq. For example.

I had seen some of that before, but I was hoping any issues would have been sorted out for the T748v2. Some features were added to the V2, so I'd hope they corrected any issues the first one had.

I've noticed that I can get a Marantz 5008 in the same price range, but I'm not sure how big of a step up on amp quality that would be.
