NAD Electronics previewed its new 9-channel flagship AVR, the T 778, at the CEDIA Expo. The AVR features 9 high current/high power channels that were designed with NAD’s full disclosure approach to power ratings, meaning the T 778 delivers 9 X 100W FTC and 9 x 80W FDP all driven at rated distortion. Each channel is configurable to be used for surround or second zone audio.

“The T 778 packages that sound quality with the most compelling digital technologies such as BluOS, MQA, Bluetooth aptX HD, AirPlay2 and Dirac Live in a user-friendly format.” commented Greg Stidsen, NAD’s Chief Technology Officer. “NAD firmly believes that there are many people for whom music will always come first. With NAD’s reputation for high value/high performance, it was apparent that the T 778 would have to please the most demanding Audiophiles and Videophiles. MDC then helps protect their investment for years to come.”
The T 778 uses a low profile 3U rack-mount chassis and TFT touch display combined with certified driver support for all major control systems. Including the CI friendly- RS232 Serial Control Port, trigger in/out, and IR In with learning function, the T 778 is the perfect choice for advanced custom home theatres.
As is customary for the company, NAD prevents premature obsolescence on the T 778 with Modular Design Construction (MDC). The T 778 can handle 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos and DTS Master Audio, and combined with Dirac Live room correction, you’ll be simply immersed in every dimension of a musical or theatrical performance. Add bit-perfect 4K UHD video pass-through and the T 778 delivers the most accurate sound and image experience you’ve ever had.
The new NAD T 778 will be on display at CEDIA Expo, September 12-14, in the Lenbrook Booth 2520, Hall F at the Colorado Convention Center and will be available this November at a MSRP of $2999 U.S.
