Multiroom Audio Playback
80W x 7ch Amplifier (all channels driven): The power rating
of 80 watts (continuous) x 7 is taken with all channels driven simultaneously
into a 4Ω or 8Ω load, from 20Hz to 20kHz, at the rated distortion of 0.03% THD.
The T 777 V3 provides a dynamic power of 160W/ch into 8Ω and 260W/ch into 4Ω.
- NAD's Full Disclosure Power Ratings: NAD uses Full
Disclosure Power (FDP), the most demanding criterion for performance
measurement. FDP specifies distortion under the most extreme conditions of
low impedance loads and frequency extremes, rather than the simple and easy
1kHz @ 8 ohms test quoted by many of other manufacturers. NAD uses this
stricter performance criterion because it more closely matches the demands
of real music and real loudspeakers. Maintaining specified distortion at
4/8Ω and at 20-20kHz is a much more difficult achievement. The benefit of
NAD's Full Disclosure Power is the total elimination of audible distortion
at any listening level. This provides pinpoint imaging and realism with
music and movies alike.
- PowerDrive Amplifier Technology: The T 777 V3 uses NAD's
proprietary PowerDrive amplifier technology that provides high dynamic power and
low impedance drive capability. By adding a second high-voltage rail to the
amp's well regulated high-current power supply, the amplifier can nearly double
its continuous power on a short term dynamic power basis. This uniquely
efficient power supply topology provides the real world benefits of high dynamic
power that remains uncompromised by low impedance speakers. The PowerDrive topology allows the T 777 V3 to
deliver maximum performance under virtually any circumstance, independent of
the loudspeakers it is driving. The circuitry automatically senses the impedance
characteristics of the loudspeaker and will then adjust its power supply
settings to best cope with that specific load. PowerDrive topology is a
practical approach to enable an amplifier to easily deal with musical dynamics
and difficult speaker loads. PowerDrive not only makes NAD amplifiers
sound better, it makes them cooler running, with improved efficiency, leading to
greater reliability as well.
- NAD Soft Clipping: The T 777 V3 incorporates NAD's unique
Soft-Clipping circuitry in all seven channels. Any amplifier can be overdriven
if it is played too loud, exceeding the maximum output power. Under such
circumstances, amplifiers produce extreme high levels of distortion which,
besides sounding very unpleasant, can damage your loudspeakers. The Soft
Clipping circuit suppresses such distortion and minimizes the risk of damage to
speakers. This is particularly important with movie soundtracks which often
contain very dynamic outbursts in which, unlike music, it is difficult to hear
this potentially damaging distortion. The Soft Clipping LED on the front panel
illuminates when the Soft Clipping circuit is engaged. Soft Clipping can be
defeated with a rear panel switch.
Amplifier Assignment: The T 777 V3 supports up to 7.2 channels (Front
L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround Back L/R, and Dual SW) for surround playback. The seven amplifier channels built into the
receiver are typically used for 7.1 or 5.1.2 channel surround in the main room,
but there are various amplifier configurations to accommodate your home theater
- 7.2ch: The AV receiver's amplifier channels can be
configured as Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, and Surround
Back L/R for Dolby TrueHD & DTS-HD 7.1ch playback.
- 5.1.2ch: This amplifier configuration provides Dolby
Atmos 5.1.2ch playback with Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R,
and Overhead L/R speakers.
Bi-Amp: You can configure the amplifier for front bi-amp operation
to achieve a higher-quality 2-channel sound by connecting the receiver's
front and surround back channels to your main front speakers (if
compatible). Receiver will be limited to 5.2ch surround.
- Zone 2, 3, or 4: The receiver's amplifier channels can be
configured as Front L/R, Center, and Surround L/R in the Main Zone; while
the Surround Back amplifier can be re-assigned to power speakers in Zone 2,
Zone 3, or Zone 4. This setup allows for Dolby Digital & DTS 5.1ch playback
in the main zone and 2ch PCM playback in Zone 2, 3, or 4.
High Quality DAC & DSP: The NAD T 777 V3 AV Surround Sound Receiver employs a carefully selected, top-level 24-bit/192kHz Burr Brown DAC for
the ultimate audiophile performance. The T 777 V3 also uses the
latest high-speed Dual Core Floating Point DSP technology for popular surround
formats including Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, and
DTS-HD Master Audio.

Immersive Surround Sound: The NAD T 777 V3 AV receiver goes
beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats - like
Dolby Atmos & DTS:X (future firmware update).
- Dolby Atmos:
Dolby Atmos surround sound technology
dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based
coding, giving the soundtrack designer the ability to precisely place sounds
anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. Now you can enjoy this same
award-winning technology at home with the T 777 V3 that lets you to connect
a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2
Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for a 5.1.2ch home theater experience.
You can also create a 5.1.4, 7.1.2, or 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos setup by powering
the Atmos speakers with external power amplifiers using the T 777 V3's
- DTS:X (future firmware update required): The latest immersive surround sound system,
DTS:X features object-based audio
coding that lets the soundtrack designer place sonic elements anywhere in
the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a
stunning surround sound experience. Along with DTS:X decoding, the T 777 V3
features DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and other DTS audio technologies.
Post Decoding Formats: The NAD T 777 V3 supports Dolby
Surround & DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel
- Dolby Surround:
Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch and
multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 7.1ch or Dolby
Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving
the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It
does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control
over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can
be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and
greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer
and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the
entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
- DTS Neo:6: DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder that
takes any two-channel source (including television broadcasts, CDs and DVDs)
and expands it into five or six channels. It also provides separate,
optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion
picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 brings you a more revealing sound from
ordinary stereo and a more expansive home cinema experience.
Dirac Live Room Correction Technology: Proprietary
patented room correction technology is integrated into the T 777 V3. With Dirac
Live you can easily measure the acoustic characteristics of your loudspeakers
and room, plus calibrate the sound system to reproduce sound as intended.
Whether you use a PC or MAC computer, the Dirac Live Room Correction Suite
software offers a clear improvement of your audio system by analyzing your
speakers and room acoustics with the help of a measurement microphone that plugs
into your computer or the T 777 V3. The software then uses this data to build an
acoustic model of the listening environment and detects the deficiencies. After
careful analysis, Dirac Live corrects for both the timing and amplitude aspects
of the colorations in sound to deliver a uniquely pristine listening experience.
Dirac Live's digital room correction will help your loudspeakers reach their
full potential in any listening room. Dirac Live helps create a natural,
realistic and transparent sound with tighter bass and reduced room modes, in a
way previously not possible.
- System Requirements: Download the
Calibration Tool installer onto your Windows or Mac computer. Compatible
with Windows Vista, 7, 8,10; as well as Mac OS X 10.7 - 10.11. Both
your computer (Windows or Mac) and the T 777 V3 must be connected to the
same network. Make sure the T 777 V3 has the latest firmware/software update
- How It Works: It takes approximately 15 minutes to calibrate your
room with the Dirac Live Calibration Tool software. Test signals are sent
out from the Dirac Live Calibration Tool through your audio system and
loudspeakers. These signals allow the software to check the sound's behavior
across the entire audio spectrum. Measurements are taken in 9 different
positions to provide the best results over the entire listening area. The
speakers and room are optimized in terms of the frequency response and the
impulse response, both vital aspects of sound reproduction. Dirac's
auto-target function will automatically suggest an appropriate target
EARS: Two-channel recordings, whether stereo or
surround-encoded, are reproduced with proprietary NAD surround processing with
signals output to the front left/right, center and discrete left/right surround
channels, plus subwoofer. EARS extracts the natural ambience present in nearly
all well-produced stereo recordings. It does not synthesize any ambience or
other sonic elements and thus remains truer to the sound of the original musical
performance than most other music-surround options. EARS offers realistic,
stable "front-stage" sonic imaging and spacious but unexaggerated ambient
"virtual acoustics" that remain faithful to the original recording. Select EARS
for listening to stereo music recordings and broadcasts. EARS produces a subtle
but highly natural and believable ambience from nearly all "natural-acoustic"
stereo recordings. Typically, these include classical, jazz, and folk genre.
Stereo Modes: The NAD T 777 V3 also provides two-channel stereo
and multi-channel stereo playback, as well as an analog bypass stereo mode.
- Stereo: All output is directed to the front left/right
channels. Low frequencies are directed to the subwoofer if one is present in
the Speaker settings. Select 'Stereo' when you wish to listen to a stereo
(or monaural) production, such as music CD or FM broadcast, without surround
enhancement. Stereo recordings whether in PCM/digital or analog form and
whether surround-encoded or not encoded, are reproduced as recorded.
Multi-channel digital recordings (Dolby Digital and DTS) are reproduced in
"Stereo Downmix" mode via the front left/right channels.
- Enhanced Stereo: All recordings are reproduced in
stereo via the maximum speaker complement. Enhanced stereo can be useful for
maximum volume from all channels or for multi-speaker background music
(cocktail party) listening. For this mode, Front, Center, Surround and Back
speakers can be turned ON/OFF as desired.
- Analog Bypass: All analog signals remain in the analog
domain without analog-to-digital conversions. At Analog Bypass, the DSP
circuitry is bypassed but full tone control functions remain. 'Bass
management' or Speaker settings are also not in effect as these are DSP
Direct Mode: Analog or digital sources are automatically
played in their native formats. All the source's audio channels are reproduced
directly. This mode recreates the original sound most faithfully, thereby
producing outstandingly high-quality audio.
Tone Controls: The T 777 V3 has three Tone Control levels; Treble, Bass,
Center Dialog. Bass and Treble controls only affect the low bass and high treble
leaving the critical midrange frequencies free of coloration. The Center Dialog
control boosts the 'presence' of the midrange region improving intelligibility
Note: Tone Defeat gives one the choice of varying or completely
bypassing the tone control section of the T 777 V3.
Enhanced Bass: When the subwoofer is set to 'On' and your front
speakers set to 'Large', the option 'Enhanced Bass' becomes available. Normally,
with speakers set to 'Large' the subwoofer is not active. The Enhanced Bass
option allows full range operation of the speakers with the additional bass
contribution of the subwoofer. This feature is particularly useful when one
wants to experience maximum bass output.
Note: Please note that due to acoustic cancellation effects, the
bass response may be uneven when using this setting.
Gain Adjustment: Gain adjustment allows all sources to play back at
the same volume level so you don't need to adjust the volume every time a new
source is selected. It is generally preferable to reduce the level of the
loudest source rather than making louder the softer sources.
Dolby & DTS Setup: The T 777 V3 offers the following audio
settings specifically relating to Dolby Digital & DTS soundtracks.
- Dynamic Range Control: You can select the effective dynamic range
(subjective range from soft to loud) for playback of Dolby Digital & DTS soundtracks.
For fully cinematic effect, always select 100% (the default). Settings of 75%,
50%, and 25% progressively reduce dynamic range, making soft sounds
comparatively louder while limiting the peak loudness of loud ones.
- Center Spread: The Center image is spread into the Left and Right
speakers. It is designed to complement musical content or to spread the
dialogue of a Dolby Digital soundtrack. It can be turned On or Off.
- Center Gain: The Center Gain adjusts for better center image in
relation to the surround sound channels of a DTS soundtrack. Adjustable from
Gold-Plated Binding Posts: The nine pair of gold-plated binding
post speaker terminals (Front A left/right, Front B left/right, Center, Surround left/right, and
Surround Back left/right) will accept banana plugs (single only), pin
connectors, and bare wire (up to 10 gauge). The receiver supports A-B front
speakers and Bi-amping of Front A speaker.
- A-B Speakers: The T 777 V3 offers Front A and Front B
speakers. These speaker connections are wired in parallel inside the
receiver. You can connect 4Ω speakers, if you are only going to drive one
pair of speakers (A or B) at a time. You will need to connect 8Ω speakers,
if you are going to drive Front A and Front B speakers simultaneously.
- Bi-Amping Front Speakers: The Surround-Back speaker
terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to
bi-amp the front speakers, providing improved bass and treble performance.
When bi-amping the front speakers the receiver is limited to a 5.2ch speaker
system in the main room.
7.1Ch Input: The T 777 V3 features a 7.1 Channel input
(Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround Back L/R, and Subwoofer) for
connecting an outboard processor or multi-channel analog source.

and Dual Sub) to connect the receiver to external
Headphone Output: The NAD AV receiver features a 1/4" stereo
headphone jack on the front-panel for connecting an optional pair of headphones.
The unit's speaker outputs are automatically muted when a set of headphones is
Front-Panel Inputs: The NAD T 777 V3 includes a 3.5mm Aux input and a
stereo RCA input on the front-panel, as well as a HDMI input.
HDMI 2.0b: The NAD T 777 V3 has six HDMI 2.0b inputs (5
rear/1 front), one HDMI 2.0b output and one HDMI 1.4a output. The HDMI 2.0b
jacks support for UltraHD 4K video, HDCP 2.2, 4:4:4 color
gamut, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support. The HDMI 1.4 a output only supports
up to 1080p. The two HDMI outputs are parallel,
so the same video signal is output through both and can be used simultaneously.
- 4K/60Hz: The T 777 V3 supports up to 4K (3840x2160
pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on
all of its HDMI inputs and output (pass-through only - no upscaling). It
will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI.
- HDCP 2.2: All of the receiver's HDMI jacks support HDCP
2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for
4K video transmission.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All of the receiver's HDMI
jacks support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color
subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance
(brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in
an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image
with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- High Dynamic Range (HDR): High Dynamic Range (HDR)
provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail
for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater
dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast.
This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from
detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater
depth. The receiver supports HDR 10 & Dolby Vision.
Audio Return Channel (ARC): This feature of the AV
receiver's HDMI 1output allows audio to be sent from your compatible TV
to the receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and
video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your
HDMI Pass-through: When the T 777 V3 is in standby mode
(power off), the HDMI source signals will continuously pass through the receiver
to the TV. The HDMI Control (CEC) feature must be enabled in order for HDMI
Pass-through to work.
3D-Ready: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to
own a receiver that passes 3D video signals. The T 777 V3 is able to pass 3D
signals from your Blu-ray player to your TV via the HDMI connection.

NAD AV Remote App: Download the free
NAD AV Remote App from the Apple Apps Store to control the T 777 V3 from
your Apple iOS 6.0+ device (including iPod touch, iPhone, & iPad). Control,
adjust and select basic functions - including power, volume, source, and
listening mode for all zones with the touchscreen of your compatible iOS device.
Note: The NAD AV Remote App is currently not compatible
Dual IR Remotes: The NAD T 777 V3 comes with two IR remote controls -
one for the Main Zone and one for Zone 2.
- Main Remote: The HTR 8 IR remote controls the T 777 V3 and is
pre-coded with controls for other NAD components. The IR remote also features a
"learning function" which allows you to teach commands to the HTR 8 from another
remote controller, regardless of brand. The HTR 8's key-illumination can be set
to remain lit for 0-9 seconds. A 'macro' command is a series of two or more
remote codes issued automatically from a single key-press. The HTR 8 can store
one macro on each of its function keys.
- Zone 2 Remote: The included ZR 7 is a discrete compact
IR remote for controlling the Zone 2 features of the T 777 V3; it allows control of
the Zone 2 volume and source selection, as well as other applicable functions.
The ZR 7 will work from a different room using an IR sensor and hub or the IR
sensor of a compatible NAD component in the second zone (either must be wired
back to the location of the T 777 V3).
Note: The ZR 7 remote control will only control Zone 2
applications. Zone 3 and Zone 4 can be configured and managed at the
appropriate Zone OSD menu using the T 777 V3's front-panel navigations buttons,
as well as the corresponding keys on the HTR 8 remote control.
HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronic Control): Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is
a set of commands that utilizes HDMI's two-way communication to allow for single
remote control of any CEC-enabled devices connected with HDMI. A CEC command
will trigger the necessary commands over HDMI for an entire system to
auto-configure itself to respond to the command.
- Power: The T 777 V3 will automatically go to standby mode if it
receives a CEC standby command. On the other hand, if the T 777 V3 receives a
CEC power up command, the T 777 V3 will correspondingly switch ON from standby
- Source Switch: The T 777 V3 will automatically switch sources if
another CEC device requests a Source change. For example, if Play is
pressed on a BD Player with CEC, the T 777 V3 and TV with CEC will
automatically switch to their respective input connections; the T 777 V3
switching to the HDMI input where the BD Player is connected while the TV
will switch to its input where the T 777 V3's HDMI Monitor Out is connected.
- Audio System: The T 777 V3 will broadcast a CEC message indicating
it is an active audio system. A CEC compatible TV will usually mute its
audio output when this happens. When this option is enabled, the T 777 V3 will
also respond to CEC volume and mute commands. For example, a CEC TV may
forward the volume commands from its remote to the T 777 V3.
Custom Integration Remote Options: The NAD T 777 is fitted with the
following custom integration remote inputs & outputs.
- +12V Trigger Outputs/Input: The three +12V trigger outputs (3.5mm)
let you turn on/off other devices along with the T 777 V3. The +12V trigger input
lets you turn on/off the T 777 V3 from another device.
- IR Input/Outputs: There is an IR input (3.5mm), used to
control this unit using an optional infrared repeater or the IR output of
another component. There are also three IR outputs (3.5mm) used to control
another compatible component.
- RS-232 Port: The rear-panel RS-232 port allows connection to
a compatible PC or external whole-house control system from companies such as
AMX or Crestron. NAD is a certified partner of AMX and Crestron and fully
supports these external devices.
- Ethernet Port: The T 777 V3 is fitted with a Ethernet Port (RJ-45) to
connect to your home network for IP control. With your PC and the T 777 V3 on the
