New from NAD is the T747, a £1000 AV receiver said to offer "the very latest high definition features and performance at a very competitive price". The 7x60W design has decoding for all the current high-definition audio formats, four HDMI inputs and 1080p video upscaling and upconversion.
Automatic set-up and calibration are provided, and the receiver has five 'Custom AV Presets', storing speaker settings, listening mode and tone settings. There's a built-in FM/AM tuner, and the T747 has the option of adding a DAB module or, for North American versions, an XM satellite radio receiver.
Finally, the receiver has a Data Port, to which NAD's iPod docks can be connected.
In addition to the four HDMIs, the receiver also has two optical and two electrical digital inputs, six stereo analogue inputs and a 7.1-channel analogue in.
More after the break
There's also a 7.1-channel preout set, and the receiver can also run a second listening zone, with two remote handsets being provided along with infrared remote input and output, a 12V trigger output and RS232 control socket.
The T747 is available now.
