Not really comparing an NAD to Trinnov
, as the Altitude is in a class by itself for its feature set, if you want it and can justify at least the Altitude 16 price point. My point is that outside of that, an NAD with built-in Dirac and Atmos/DTS:X supercedes or no worse equals what you can get from D&M (other than the flagship that can now do 7.1.6 or 9.1.4, but uses minimum phase Audyssey XT32), Yamaha or Onkyo for room EQ, immersive audio/upmixing and basic functionality with HDMI sources.
There's a few processors that have higher channel count competitive with NAD, but Emotiva's RMC-1 is still a work in progress with bugginess and odd quirks (see the audible DSP chirp), StormAudio's native 9.1.6 Elite ISP is closer to Altitude 16 pricing than NAD, and the Monoprice pre/pro is still not in the hands of consumers. Pricewise it's a bit less than a Lyngdorf with RoomPerfect. So at least in my opinion, a fully featured 758 is a reasonable value for the money and makes using Dirac Live with a 7.1.4 system much easier as it's built into the pre/pro; no need for multiple MiniDSP 88As or only EQing the mains. For what that's worth.
