T773 - $1799

T763 - $1399


Differences are in power output and 7 channels instead of 6. T773 had 5 low speed fans on the bottom, T763 has 4. I think the T773 weighs almost 55 lbs. Not bad considering they don't put it in a heavy box. My NAD amp box had a sticker claiming 85 lbs shipping weight. That was painful to move.

Say I have a new T763 at home. I must say it sounds great! I had been listening to Directv music channels from the analog output of a E86 Hughes. With the NAD I used a toslink from the E86. The difference was remarkable,almost like a new set of speakers. I would guess most of the difference is in the (high quality) D to A converters used in the T763.

On the downside on first impression there seems to be a noticeable loss of HD picture quality when using the component switching built into the receiver. As it stands I will not consider using the receiver to switch any component sources. Somewhat disappointing. Anyone else confirm this. Thanks Dallas

I use my T762 for switching S-video, I have seen other threads claming that no loses are seen in the Pic while using Component in on the NAD.


The manuals states that the components installed are capable of piping through an HD signal, with no loses

I am not using scientific methods,but over a couple hundred hours of mostly HD viewing I am familiar with the performance of the Sony VPL HS20 projector on a Stewart 110" diagonal screen. I was definitely not expecting it but as I was viewing an HD basketball game(after feeding signal through NAD) it seemed softer than usual with the color slightly off. As soon as I hooked the signal direct to HS20 the picture became sharper with better color.

I do have a JVC DVHS machine and DVE so an quick comparison with HD test patterns is probably in order. I am pretty confident that at least with this particular T763 that some loss of bandwidth or resolution occurs. Good luck Dallas

ddingle: This is using component cables for both connections, or component vs. DVI? May I ask what resolution the source material was in? I'm looking forward to using my T163 to switch component signal, so I'm quite curious...

Thanks
No intrusion. You guys can do whatever you want with this thread.


fsckd, Thanks for the manual it helped alot. One thing missing in it though was the power consumption. Any ideas? I've looked and can't find it.

I was using component video(only) from a Hughes E86 HD Directv sat receiver. I was using ESPN HD basketball coverage to compare the signal with and without the T763 in the component path. As mentioned I am using a 54" by 96"(110"diagonal) image at about 15 feet. It may be difficult to notice this problem on a smaller screen. I will keep this thread informed on any further testing I do. Dallas
