Can u comment on that...
So long as you realize this is just my opinion.
First, I cannot find the review you refer to on Amazon.com, so I cannot comment directly to it.
However, in my opinion, I doubt the T747 is the real culprit; I would look long and hard at the HDMI cables, the television, and the blu-ray player involved first.
For example, some older TV's seem to have synch problems at 60hz, often needing a 59hz signal to stay stable. This usually manifests as a slow flashing on the screen. Though probably not exactly the same thing, this sounds like something along those lines to me.
Obviously, I cannot guarantee a T747, or any other receiver, is going to work flawlessly in your system. And in fact, the T747 and all the NAD gear above it is very revealing of flaws in a system. If there are any, you will probably notice them with a T747.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
The sound, the flexibility, the very low cost, and in my experience, the rock solid build quality all make the T747 a no brainer for me. In other words, even though it is the "low end" of NAD in terms of AVRs, it is an order of magnitude above the Pioneers, Denons, and such you find in the same price range.
By price range, I am talking about the < $1K price range it is selling for right now. I've seen T747's for $699.
YMMV, don't buy it unless you are comfortable spending the money on it.
But if you do buy one, I think you will be very happy with it.
If you run into issues, and you invariably will, take the time to troubleshoot them and get the facts. Chances are, it won't be the T747 at fault, and fixing or replacing whatever *is* wrong will almost certainly make a drastic improvement in your kit.
P.S. I do understand your concern. I am VERY lucky to have a high end shop in my area, and I can trust the people there to give me straight answers. I almost always take their advice too. It's a whole different world trying to use the internet to research opinion. Trust your ears and do what feels right to you.
