First time post but wanted to thank all of you. I have been reading this forum and others (Onkyo, Yamaha, Marantz, Sherwood Newcastle)since June while trying to decide which receiver to put my money into. I have auditioned several units and finally bought the NAD 787. I purchased it in early January and have had it now for a few weeks. I think I was the first unit delivered in the States.I am very impressed with the quality and overall sound reproduction.
Only one quirk was the Audyssey setup, at first it didn't like the mic that came with the unit, so I used an old one. That mic would not go over 4 speakers before giving a "to much noise" message. I put the new mic in and it worked flawlessly. Go figure? The XT is not as good as the trinov in the Newcastle, but works well enough.
No clipping, no dropouts, flawless integration with other components.
It has the VM150, VM150X and the AM200. I don't have a 3D set but the picture quality is an improvement over the old Onkyo it replaced. Did I need all of the inputs and extras? No, but I wanted the watts and may add afew things over the years.
Thanks again for all the posts and information over the last months.
