Hello, this is my first post here, though i have been loitering here for some time while I decide which receiver with advanced features might work best with a Totem Arro/Dreamcatcher speaker set-up. I have been very impressed by what I have heard about the T775.
But cannot, therefore, offer much of a contribution about the experience of owning a NAD. I can, however, testify to the fact that NAD's website is a little misleading, at least where it identifies NYC area dealers. One of three listed I have visited in the Lower Manhattan area does not carry them anymore (but may order them for a customer), another carries only a very small selection of separates, while a third carries a lonely T163 and has no idea when, if at all, it will sell the new line of receivers. I haven't identified them, since I'm unsure about forum etiquette, but it's getting very likely that since I can't even see one before I buy, much less hear one with the totems (which has an even smaller dealer network), I'm more likely to veer towards a Marantz/Arcam/Rotel receiver.
Anyway, it's been a pleasure reading all the comments, and my apologies for debuting with such a negative thought, but the lack of auditioning opportunities is a killer.
