Our take on the NAD T 758

Think your home theater receiver doesn't really affect how your speakers sound? Then NAD has something to show you. Connect your stereo or surround sound speakers to the T 758 and hear just how much better they can sound when driven by this powerhouse. Conservatively rated at 110 watts per channel in stereo mode, this receiver packs a wallop, bringing more punch and dynamics to music and movies than you may be accustomed to hearing outside of a movie theater. If you want a clearer idea of how your favorite musicians and movie directors intended for you to experience their work, fire up this receiver, sit back, and lose yourself for a couple of hours. You may rethink the importance of a receiver to your system's sound.

When it comes to receivers, choose wisely

Think your home theater receiver doesn't really affect how your speakers sound? Then NAD has something to show you. Connect your stereo or surround sound speakers to the T 758 and hear just how much better they can sound when driven by this powerhouse. Conservatively rated at 110 watts per channel in stereo mode, this receiver packs a wallop, bringing more punch and dynamics to music and movies than you may be accustomed to hearing outside of a movie theater. If you want a clearer idea of how your favorite musicians and movie directors intended for you to experience their work, fire up this receiver, sit back, and lose yourself for a couple of hours. You may rethink the importance of a receiver to your system's sound.

No frills, just thrills

While other A/V receivers may offer more features, NAD focused the T 758 on one mission: performance. This receiver is designed to deliver the very best sound and picture from all your audio and video sources. By eliminating signal-degrading and space-eating processing and seldom-used features, the T 758 achieves vanishingly low distortion. This is the music lover's A/V receiver, backed by NAD's decades of audiophile expertise, to deliver music and movie soundtracks with clarity and detail that lifts the "veil" off your speakers to reveal their full potential.

Designed with the future in mind

With rapidly changing developments in digital audio and video, it's sometimes hard to commit to new gear when something newer may be just over the horizon. That's why NAD developed Modular Design Construction. The T 758's digital inputs and outputs are built into a removable circuit board. So if something better comes along, you'll have the option to upgrade your connections without buying a whole new receiver. It's a smart way to future-proof your purchase with the benefits of clean, powerful amplification that will never go out of style.

Two assignable channels for a second room

With seven channels to play with, NAD has added one important feature over the previous version of this receiver. The "surround back" channels are reassignable. So if, like many people, you have five speakers in your home theater, you can power two additional speakers in a second room with the T 758. Or if you'd like to get more clarity from your front speakers, you can use those two extra channels to bi-amp your compatible fronts.

Customized presets for movies and music

All receivers are designed to perform double-duty for movies and music. This NAD receiver makes it easy to switch between a CD and a Blu-ray disc without having to reconfigure all your settings. The T 758 features five A/V presets which let you customize different functions for optimal playback. For instance, you may want to play movies from your Blu-ray player in 7.1-channel surround sound using your subwoofer for plenty of deep, rumbling bass. But perhaps you want to use only your front speakers and the sub for pop music. However, you'd prefer acoustic music to play only through your stereo speakers without the sub, though with a little bit of extra bass response courtesy of the receiver's built-in tone controls. With the T 758, you could create three presets to handle all of these situations with easy one-button selection.

    Amazing Sound!

    Robert from Newburyport, MA on 1/5/2017

    Recently replaced a Pioneer Elite AVR 65 (Note: it broke with a known issues for these models - I am done with Pioneer) with this receiver and could not be happier. As expected amazing NAD sound (pushing Totem Acoustics Tribe speakers), all the functionality I needed and none that I didn't. Music and movies both sound better with this receiver than the Pioneer. I find most Home Theater receivers today try to do all things for all people and end up doing none well while adding way too much complexity for what amounts to simple needs. using this to power a 5.1 home theater, a second zone via Sonos connect, and hi-res stereo via the fronts in the home theater room. Kills in all 3 areas.

    Pros: Simple, amazing sound, modular

    Cons: Requires some manual setup to get the best sound (unless you add a module)

    NAD T 758

    Anonymous from Griffin, GA on 9/7/2016

    I have had NAD 2 channel stereo receivers/integrated amps in the past and enjoyed their quality. I have a couple of issues though with this receiver: 1) the volume level has to be fairly high (I have Klipsch speakers which are very efficient) so that makes no sense at all to me ( I used a sound level meter to make my adjustments); and the cost of the MDC modules. I had to write NAD to get the upgrade coupon and was told back in February that the 4k module would be out in the 2nd quarter. It is now September and still no 4k module.



    Poor sound quality compared to lesser priced components

    pgoetz from Austin, TX on 6/23/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this unit to replace the lesser priced Cambridge Audio Azur 351R which had a number of quirks I couldn't live with (see my review of that product). The first thing I noticed right out of the box was that the NAD T758 didn't sound nearly as good as the Azur 35iR -- not even close. It was extremely noticable. Over time I've grown to hate this receiver (the poor sound quality is a constant irritant) but it also has the annoying feature that I will change channels (say from the blu-ray player to the Amazon Fire, or from the Fire to the Playstation) only to have it change the channel back on me or to refuse to go to that channel altogether unless I sit there pressing the button on the remote over and over again. Given the price, this is a very unsatisfying product. My hunch is that you're not going to get satisfactory audio from NAD unless you go all the way up to the NAD C 390DD. Otherwise, might as well save some money and go with Yamaha or Onkyo

    Pros: Basically works.

    Cons: Poor sound quality.

    Phenomenal reciever, best Ive ever heard for sound and overall performance!

    Pros: Just like a movie theatre sound!

    Cons: none


    Scott R from New York, NY on 4/28/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought the NAD to replace a Marantz integrated amp ....and as I'd hoped the results are on another level. The NAD has a much fuller sound and handles music with much more composure. It is also a far better pairing for my B&W 685 S2's. Highly recommended.

    Pros: Quality. Musicality. Value beyond anything else at this price.

    Cons: None.

    Desires Fulfilled

    BHen from Texas on 12/29/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I had my eye on this NAD for quite some time. With a simple 3.1 setup in the main room of my house, I was super excited to be driving power to my old Polk Monitor series speakers - it had been two years of no sound after my last unit died. Obviously I was looking for power with musicality. The NAD did not fail in that department. That is actually the best part about this unit and almost a flaw at some points. This setup is used for radio, music, streaming tv and movies - mostly digital formats. It's no fault of the unit that more often than not there are compression artifacts or lacking playback options. My biggest complaint is how music in movies and tv tend to greatly outshine the rest of the cinematic soundscapes. I would probably notice this less if I had a HT speaker setup.

    Pros: Simple, clean interface, good looking, easy to use, powerful enough not to need external amplification (yet.) Music really shines on the NAD.

    Cons: No fancy MultEQ, not that I was looking for that. Have heard there will be an expansion module for this unit and NAD was offering $200 upgrades for recent buyers. I did not get the paper notice in the box. Have not contacted NAD yet.

    Best Receiver, amazing sound

    Toddsters from San Antonio on 11/9/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just get this receiver; stop overthinking it and get it.

    Pros: Sound, ease of manually setting up.

    Cons: None

    Outstanding Customer Service

    Dan from New York on 7/24/2015

    This receiver replaced a Pioneer Elite VSX-32 AV receiver. I went with NAD because of their attention to sound quality, their FDP (Full Disclosure Power), and their MDC (Modular Design Construction) capability. I am very pleased with the sound quality of this receiver and would highly recommend it to all.

    Pros: Sound quality. Power. MDC.

    Cons: The only con I had was the Audyssey setup. When I first ran the setup it set my left front speakers distance at 0 feet. I later moved my sub and attempted to run the Audyssey setup again and had no success. I ran it five times and kept getting "Check Type" on the screen. I wrote NAD and they sent me the attached link: Tech-Tip Bulletin - TXX7-SB2013-04 (2).pdf. If you follow these instruction it will correct the problem. The factory reset for the T758 is the same as the T757.

    Still learning

    TomK from Texas on 7/15/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I like the clean power, the sound is very good so (I am still adding speakers to make a 5.0 setup in the living room, plus Zone B patio speakers). I don't like the menu system, I was hoping there would be some simplicity here, since it isn't a networked product. I like how the volume gets turned down when signal sources are changed. But people need to remember to turn it up to over -40 dB to hear what they're doing after they set it up. HDMI pass-through to listen to TV-originated programming is a bit dodgy still for me. Blu Ray and Media Center are fine, since they go through the NAD. Probably a learning curve thing for me.

    Pros: True DC power supply, not switching. I am soon to learn what details it lends to sound, have already heard some neat sound stage effects that I never heard in the same manner before.

    Cons: Takes some figuring out. I have compared the manual to Denon AVRX-3000, and they seem to have much better cross-referencing and links to help increase understanding and complete a task. The cover for Audyssey mic and front panel inputs is pretty cheesy for something in this price range. It is plastic, and gets pivoted out by pushing on one end. It is merely perched back into place when needed there.

    NAD t 758

    Tracy D from nv on 6/2/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I finally can hear my CD's the way they were meant to be heard. I have this going into 2 Emotiva monoblock amps into a set of B&W 683's and it sounds awesome at very high levels! ( I like it loud). I've only set up the front and center channels and movies already sound really good. Can't wait to get the sub and surrounds hooked up.

    Pros: Music sounds great. Pretty easy to set up.

    Cons: For 1K a better manual would be nice but like I said it was easy to figure out with out one.

    Awesome AV receiver

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Performs better than my Marantz and Denon. Quiet scenes are completely quiet. Full body sound when paired with my Klipsch ref prems.

    Pros: Fast source switching. No temporal and cluttering apps.

    Cons: App control would be nice.

    So Far So Good

    Mc from Illinois on 3/27/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Coming from a vintage Integra, the receiver is much less complex. It was easy to set up. It is all horsepower and no frills. Other reviews have complained about a lack of volume but mine will go painfully loud. The set up device was a failure in my case, but my situation is difficult Zone 2 is controllable only through the remote unless I am missing something. the Integra was much easier in that regard with controls on the front of the unit.

    Pros: Solidly built Easy to set up

    Cons: Set up device was a failure

    Great amp but upgrades costly

    Dtbach from Wisconsin on 3/17/2015

    Great sounding amp with spectacular 5.1 sound. I scored a great deal on some Paradigm Cinema speakers and the spatial sound playing Pink Floyd "Wish you were here" Blue Ray 5.1 remaster was absolutely Devine. It has a secondary amp that can be used in a 7.1 system or as a "B" speaker system which I use in our Master bedroom. It has the ability to play a different source than the primary. It also can be upgraded with a new module for future spec changes. This is nice but a new 4K module costs $$$!!! That is 60% of of the list price which is NOT cool.

    Pros: Good power, modular changes.

    Cons: High cost of new mods.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Absolutely impressed and loving it! Setup was easy and painless. I had to reluctantly replace my Cambridge Audio Azur 640R. I knew I would be sacrificing power and probably sound quality, but felt NAD would offer me the closest imaging and sound stage at a reasonable price. Boy was I surprised! I am highly recommending this unit to anyone who loves both music and movies.



    Best A/V for the $$ / Crystal Clear Sound / Powerfull

    Brian from Cincinnati, OH on 11/17/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had many top end Bose surround systems over the past 15 years, and the NAD sound is soooo much clearer. Well, that is, NAD with Definitive Technology DI series speakers all around. I'm hearing distinct background sounds I've never heard before in movies I've seen many times. Set-up and calibration was very easy. I don't miss or even know what bells and whistles weren't included - Who needs them? My blue-ray and TV connects to the internet, I do't need my A/V receiver to - I just want the best possible sound which NAD overdelivers on. Unexpected bonus - turns on and off when my TV turns on / off (senses through HDMI cable I think). Also controls blue ray player on / off through a switched receptacle outlet.

    Pros: Crystal clear sound, dialogue / voice is especially clear. Great surround sound effects. Clearest I've experienced in my home. More than enough power for my 14x21x8 home theater. I've not been able to see how loud it goes because the loudness is that painful - suffice to say....more than enough power. Automatically senses music or video and displays CODEC used, applies settings appropriately.

    Cons: I really can't think of one Con. Well, an owner's manual could have been included. Downloaded from Crutchfield's website, and set-up and calibration was so easy it was hardly needed. Still - I just like to have a hard copy.

    NAD T 758

    TrueColours from Tampa, Florida on 10/2/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    NAD T 758 : Magnificent preformance to price point. Much easier to use and install than my last NAD. Paid a small premium for Cruchfield service and got every penny of it! Super fast, friendly and dependable service.

    Pros: The NAD T 758 technology is greatly imporoved. Set up is easy and the technology much more streamlined. The footprint is smaller than my previous NAD and doesn't seem to get as hot. Sound is superior to all off the shelf Asian brands found at the box stores.

    Cons: I would prefer a little more driving power for my room as I operate the NAD T 758 at the higher end of the volume though it is sufficient with a little room left over. No other cons. . .I look forward to the audio enjoyment this NAD T 758 will give me and my family in the years ahead.

    Great Receiver

    Kyle W. from Richmond, Virginia on 8/14/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this receiver several months ago, and I'm 100% pleased. I had never heard of NAD beforehand, but I became aware through various av forums and Crutchfield's website. Sound: Very clear. It made a vast improvement to my crappy speakers. I listen to rock, classical and jazz. Lots of detail that was previously missing. I haven't scratched the surface of what this thing can do. I need better speakers. Power: I thought about buying the NAD receiver that is one level down, but I wanted to give myself flexibility when I buy speakers without having to purchase a separate amplifier. NAD has a reputation for actually providing greater wattage than what is listed, while many other companies provide less than what is listed. Simplicity: The NAD does not have many bells and whistles. I did not want this anyhow because technology will change over time, and I wanted something simple for wife, kids and grandparents to operate. NAD has a reputation for putting your dollars into the best quality sound, not features. I run my NAD through Apple Airplay, which allows me to control through my phone or computer. Price: it's expensive compared to your run of the mill receiver, but not nearly as expensive as what most audiophiles put into their system. I wanted the best I could get without going overboard. I hope to keep the receiver for many years (bought my last one in 1992), so for what it cost, it didn't seem so bad.

    Pros: Sound, power, simplicity and price.

    Cons: None really. If you are trying to get a good system and are starting with this receiver, just know that it will cost a lot more to achieve the sound you desire. You'll want good speakers next, so think about your overall budget. Maybe you end up with a less expensive receiver that's perfectly fine and much better than what you currently have.

    Great unit

    James I. from Mt. Pleasant SC on 7/16/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Love it sound is very good abandoned a recent Denon due to the sound just didn't cut it in my opinion now I get powerful bass and clear true to life sounds pretty awesome this thing is a beast 33.9 lb weight means I can use it to work out if I want... I've had NADs for years they're the best. If you love good sound

    Pros: Like the lack of tons of buttons on front of unit looks clean and simple. No frills just power and great sound. It has listening mode options which allow for changes to the sound tho haven't experimented too much with them yet. Main problem I'm having is it may blow the walls off my place when I crank it up I'll not make that a con.... Still building my system I don't even have a sub yet but it's still powerful enough sans sub I've had to tone down the bass in controls. Great unit

    Cons: Only con is Audyssey. I'm 100% sure I was in phase with the speakers. Audyssey claimed I wasn't. This is same problem I had with Denon Audyssey setup. Audyssey seems to not have a handle on determining who's in phase so technically not solely an NAD issue but since NAD has chosen to include the Audyssey I'll list it as a negative.


    El Gib from Sacramento, CA on 5/7/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Now that I've had the T 758 for three weeks and have got it all dialed in I can tell it's a great choice. I use it mainly for listening to music. It's easy on the ears and crystal clear with no distortion even at higher volumes. Several listening modes and tone controls offer enough versatility to adjust for preferences from any source. Highs from trumpets or Hammond B3s are warm and not blaring. It also excels in its secondary role as home theater. With the 7.1 surround I find having some control over the dynamic range helps to brighten up dialogue and tone down some of the less essential extraneous noise present in a lot of films. The modular design construction was a big factor in my final decision. Knowing that the current HDMI format will one day give way to some other connection and all I have to do is switch out a circuit board is a kind of insurance against obsolescence.

    Pros: Versatile and powerful. Upgradeable. Crystal clear sound reproduction. Plenty of DSP options.

    Cons: Weighs as much as a Buick Skylark. Audyssey took several attempts to get right. Does require some know-how to operate, but not too hard.

    Really good so far !!

    Great receiver - very clear. The silents are silent, and sound amplifies without distortion.

    NAD T758 receiver was very easy to setup and sounds great. I have it hooked up with cable tv box, Apple TV, DVD player, and a computer for music. Everything works and it sounds great.

    Pros: Ease of setup and great sound.

    Cons: Auto speaker setup doesn't work correctly.

    5 stars, if Audyssey worked!

    Rey from North Charleston, SC on 1/14/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Replaced a recently purchased T-748V2. The sound was better due to better build, higher wattage and, of course, higher price. Awesome receiver in every respect. Audyssey did not work after 4 attempts. Got results like 'Check Type' and 'Check Polarity'. It gave me the Check Polarity on four different speakers. One at each attempt. Checked polarity. Positive to positive, negative to negative. Not sure about 'Type'. Gave up. Set my Polks manually based on the settings on my T748. Sounds spectacular. I'm curious to see if Audyssey can do better. I will contact Crutchfield and NAD about my issue (seems I'm not the only one). As always, kudos to Crutchfield. The best.

    Pros: Superb NAD sound!

    Cons: Audyssey does not work correctly.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this as a replacement for a Yamaha RX-V3900 which died after only 4 years. WOW - What a difference !! The NAD T-758 has the cleanest sound I have heard. I listen to mostly classical and jazz and the quality is excellent, especially the mid-range. It also excels watching the TV through it. I love it. Great customer service, both from Crutchfield and NAD.

    Pros: Superb quality Easy set up Not loaded up with unneeded "bells & whistles"

    Cons: None

    Great A/V Receiver

    Frank from Pitman, NJ on 10/4/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great A/V receiver. Compared to my last two receivers, Onkyo and Denon, this unit is exceptional. Lows are more pronounced, the midrange, (vocals & movie dialog) is just superb and the highs sweet, not bright! The surround sound is so much more detailed and content rich. In fact I now hear detail in both movies and music CD's that I was missing perviously. Perfect fit with the Definitive Technology 8040ST floor standing speakers. Quality built and simple to set up and use. Well worth the money. I highly recommend to compliment any home theater system. The only negative comment I can make is when directed to the NAD website, per the enclosed documentation, the owner manual was not available. After calling, NAD emailed me a copy. Crutchfield customer service is the best. I had a question after my purchase and they promptly responded with helpful tips.

    Pros: Great, great sound, quality built, easy setup and priced right.

    Cons: The auto speaker set up doesn't work after several attempts. Not a big deal for me as Definitive Technology recommends a manual set up.

    Audio Features

    Assignable 7-Channel Amplifier: The T 758 is rated using NAD's Full Disclosure Power; 60 watts continuous output x 7 channels with all channels running simultaneously from 20-20,000 Hz into 8Ω loads with no more than 0.08% THD. The stereo output is 110 watts continuous x 2 channels under the same conditions. The seven amplifier channels built into the receiver are typically used for 7.2 channel surround in the main room, but there are various amplifier configurations to accommodate your home theater setup.

    • 7.1ch: Provides 7.1ch surround (with front left/right, center-channel, surround left/right, and surround back left/right channels along with a preamp subwoofer output) in your main zone.
    • 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). In this configuration, the receiver will be limited to 5.2ch surround.
    • Zone 2: The surround back channel amplifier can be reassigned to power stereo speakers in Zone 2. The receiver will be limited to 5.2ch surround in the main zone.
    Note: 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 manufactures. 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.

    MDC (Modular Design Construction): MDC ends the frustration of having to replace your entire AV surround sound receiver just to keep pace with the ever-changing world of AV electronics. NAD's most important recent innovation, MDC battles technology obsolescence by allowing you to upgrade the T 758 with new connectivity and features as new technology becomes available. MDC places all the input circuitry on easily removable plug-in cards; your investment is protected because a single card, rather than the entire receiver, can be replaced when a new format is introduced.

    Audyssey Auto Calibration: The Audyssey auto setup and calibration feature uses the included microphone, along with sophisticated digital electronics to automatically setup and calibrate the T 758 to the exact speakers and speaker placement of your unique home theater. The receiver automatically checks what speakers are connected (5.1 vs 7.1) and their polarity, measures and adjusts each speaker's distance (delay time), relative level (volume), and size (crossover point). The speakers can also be adjusted manually if you prefer.

    Listening Modes: The T 758 offers decoding for all the latest surround formats including Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, and DTS-HD Master Audio; as well as Dolby Pro Logic surround processing.

    Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the A/V receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.

    Listening Mode Parameters: The T 758 provides the following Listening Mode Parameter adjustments for Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS NEO:6.

    • Center Width (DPL IIx): Modifies the "hard-centeredness" of the center image, by gradually mixing mono center content to the Front left/right speakers as well. A setting of 0 retains the center-channel-only default while a setting of 7 yields a fully phantom center channel.
    • Dimension (DPL IIx): Adjusts front-rear emphasis of the surround effect independently from the relative channel levels.
    • Panorama (DPL IIx): Adds a "wraparound" effect by extending some stereo content into the surround channels.
    • Center Gain (DTS NEO:6): Adjust for better center image in relation to the surround sound channels.

    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 758 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 functions.

    Audio Settings: The NAD T 758 offers a variety of audio adjustments to tailor the unit to your preference.

    • Tone Controls: Bass & Treble can be adjusted from -10dB to +10dB.
    • 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.
    • Dynamic Range Control: You can select the effective dynamic range (subjective range from soft to loud) for playback of Dolby Digital 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.
    • 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.

    Audio Inputs/Outputs: The NAD T 758 offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.

    • Analog Inputs/Output: There are four analog audio inputs (3 rear/1 front) and one record output. There are three stereo RCA inputs and stereo RCA output on the rear-panel, plus a single 3.5mm stereo minijack input on the front panel.
    • Digital Inputs/Outputs: There are three coaxial digital inputs and four optical digital inputs (3 rear/1 front)). The inputs accept digital audio signals from a digital TV, Set top box, Blu-ray player, compact disc, DVD, LD, or other digital source components; each can be assigned to a specific source using the on-screen menu. There are also digital outputs, one coaxial and one optical. The digital outputs can be connected to MD recorders, CD recorders, DAT decks, or other similar components.
    • 7.2ch Preamp Outputs: The T 758 features Front left, Front right, Center, Surround left, Surround right, Surround Back left, Surround Back right and Subwoofer preamp outputs to connect the receiver to external power amplifiers. The Surround Back preamp outputs can also be used for Zone 2.
    • 7.1 Channel Input: The T 758 features a 7.1 Channel input (Front left, Front right, Center, Surround left, Surround right, Surround Back left, Surround Back right, and Subwoofer) for connecting an outboard processor or multi-channel analog source. The 7.1 channel input can be assigned to eight of the nine inputs (source 5 is fixed).
    • Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding post speaker terminals for the front, center, surround, and surround back channels. The surround back speaker channels can also be used for Zone 2 speakers. The binding posts can accept bare wire, pin connectors, and single banana plugs. The terminals are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs and a collar surrounding the terminals prevents the use of spade connectors.
    • Headphone Output: The 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 connected.

    Video Features

    HDMI Inputs/Output: The NAD T 758 receiver is fitted with four HDMI (v.1.4) inputs and 1 HDMI (v.1.4) output to deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video signals. The HDMI 1.4 jacks support 1080p video signals; as well as 3D video, Auto Lyp-Sinc, and ARC functionality. The AV receiver's HDMI jacks support 2-channel and multi-channel linear PCM (up to 8-channel) and Bitstream (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc) digital audio formats.

    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): HDMI (1.4) also features an Audio Return Channel, which allows both audio and video content to be sent through a single HDMI cable. This eliminates the need for separate audio and video cables running from your TV to the receiver.
    • 3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that passes 3D video signals. The T 758 is able to pass 3D signals from your Blu-ray player to your TV via the HDMI connection.
    • HDMI Pass-through: When the T 758 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.
    • Lip Sync Delay: Video signals may take longer to process than audio signals, depending on the connected video equipment. The audio signal can be delayed up to 120ms to synchronize with the video signal.

    Analog Video Inputs: The T 758 offers Component, Composite, and S-Video inputs. These analog video inputs can be assigned to specific sources using the on-screen menu. There are three component video inputs and one component video output. There are three composite video inputs (2 rear/1 front) and one composite video monitor output. There is one S-video input.

    Video Conversion: The T 758 takes each analog video input (composite video, S-video, and component video), digitizes it and sends it out through the HDMI monitor output (the S-Video input is also output through the composite video monitor output).

    Convenience Features

    On-Screen Menu: The AV receiver's on-screen text-based menu provides quick information about your system's settings. You can easily make settings for your home theater system while viewing menus on the TV screen. These menu displays can be output to your TV via HDMI, Component, Composite, or S-video.

    Zone 2: The Zone 2 feature allows you to set this receiver to reproduce separate analog input sources in the main zone and the second zone (Zone 2). The receiver has dedicated stereo RCA outputs for Zone 2, or the receiver's Surround Back channels can be configured to power speakers in the second zone. By using the RCA outputs on the AV receiver you can connect an external receiver or integrated amplifier in a second room, allowing you to listen to 7.1ch surround in the main room and play a different stereo audio source in another room of your home. By using the speaker-level outputs on the AV receiver you can directly connect a secondary pair of speakers in another room of your home, allowing you to listen to 5.1 surround sound in your main room and play a different stereo audio source in the other room. When the receiver is powering speakers in Zone 2, the surround back speakers in the main room are turned off (limiting you to 5.1ch in the main room). The volume of Zone 2 can be controlled by the NAD receiver using either configuration or from your add-on integrated amplifier when using the line-output.

    • Compatible Zone Sources: Analog audio inputs, AM/FM Tuner (you cannot select different AM/FM radio stations for each zone)
    • Incompatible Zone Sources: Optical/coaxial digital and HDMI audio sources are not output to Zone 2. You cannot output any video signal to Zone 2.

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The NAD T 758 features an internal AM/FM tuner that offers high-quality sound from your local radio broadcasts. You can store up to 30 FM and 30 AM station presets. The Radio Data System (RDS) permits sending small amounts of digital information using conventional FM radio broadcasts. The T 777 supports two RDS modes; Program-Service Name (PS mode) and Radio-Text (RT mode). Not every FM station incorporates RDS in its broadcast signal. In most areas you will find from one to several RDS-enabled stations, but it is by no means impossible that your favorite stations will not be broadcasting RDS data.

    A/V Presets: Five A/V presets can be stored with customized settings for listening mode, DSP options (lip sync delay), tone control, speaker setup, and front panel display.

    Optional iPod Dock: The optional IPD 2 iPod dock is no longer available.

    Auto Power Down: The T 758 can be setup to automatically go to standby mode if there is no user interface interaction within the allocated time (4hrs, 8hrs, or 30 mins).

    Remote Controls

    Dual Remotes: The T 758 includes an IR remote (AVR 4) for wireless operation of the AV receiver and other NAD audio/video components. The included Zone 2 IR remote (ZR 7) controls the Zone 2 features of the T 758; it allows control of the Zone 2 volume and source selection, as well as other applicable functions. The ZR 7 remote 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 758).

    HDMI-CEC: The NAD AV receiver supports the HDMI control function, which allows you to operate external components via HDMI. If your TV or other external components support HDMI control, you can use the remote controls of those devices to operate some of this unit's functions, and to synchronize this unit with the operation of those devices. You can use the following operations with the remote control of any of the connected HDMI Control compatible devices.

    • Power synchronization (On/Standby)
    • Volume control, including Mute
    • Changing the volume of the audio output signal device (either the TV or the receiver)

    Remote Connections: The NAD T 758 is fitted with the following custom remote inputs/outputs.

    • DC Trigger: The 3.5mm +12 volt output trigger is programmable and can engage when the receiver is turned on, when Zone 2 is turned on, or when a specific source is used. The output can also be delayed up to 15 seconds.
    • IR In/Out: These 3.5mm connectors (one input and two outputs) allow you to connect the T 758 to an infrared repeater and other components with IR inputs.
    • RS-232C: The RS-232C port is to be used in conjunction with an external controller; AMX, Crestron or a compatible PC using NAD's proprietary PC software.

    Switched AC: The maximum output on the 3-prong switched AC outlet on the rear panel is 120 watts/1 amp.

    Q & A

    Customer Q&A

    Crutchfield asked  
    Why did you buy this?

    CJ advice [ Sina  Nov 25, 2016 ]
    I like NAD [ Crystal  Jun 17, 2016 ]

    12 questions already asked sounds amazing. Wish you luck on your search. [ JOSEPH E  Dec 18, 2016 ]
    No there is not one that I'm aware of [ JOSEPH E  Dec 18, 2016 ]
    The 758 does not turn a stereo signal to mono. You can connect mono signals to the unit. The question is somewhat perplexing. This is a 7.1 channel home theater unit and you want it to downgrade to mono? If the source is mono, the unit will play the mono signal through all the speakers just fine. [ Kevin  Dec 17, 2016 ]
    That's a good question. I haven't come across it if it is there. I would call NAD tech support. They are excellent [ Warren  Dec 16, 2016 ]
    No [ Michal  Dec 16, 2016 ]
    Don't know I just turn it on and play I have a Tech friend that comes over and shows me how the system works. They need to make it more simpler to play with and set up like the Sony and Yamaha Tuners. [ FRANK  Oct 09, 2016 ]
    Matt, the RS232 port uses simple commands to control the receiver. I would recommend going to the NAD website and you can download the command specification. It's a simple but powerful way to control your receiver. If you have experience with any programming it will be very simple. Good luck! [ Kevin  Oct 06, 2016 ]
    Matt, I absolutely love the receiver but have not used the RS232 port. I'm sorry to not be much help on this one. [ JOSEPH E  Oct 06, 2016 ]
    Last I read it was spring 2016 that the new video module was expected. Buyers of the t758 would be able to purchase the card at a discount of $199 but an authorized service center must install the card. [ Daniel  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    It's exasperating. I have been all over NAD about this. I chose this receiver because it was advertised with the 4K 'coming Fall 2015' - and it never did. I built my whole home theater around it; SVS Primes and 75" Samsung 4K - and I am ticked. Nice audio setup, yes -- significantly outdated and lacking for home theater. Feeling cheated, honestly. [ JASON  Mar 28, 2016 ]
    Zone 2 can be adjusted independently. There are a few key setup steps needed like set the zone 2 controls on and zone 2 volume setting needs to be set to variable. Then you can use the supplied ZR-7 remote to independently adjust the zone 2 volume level. Note that "only analog audio connected through a source's analog audio input can be associated as an audio source for zone 2". This is from the owner's manual pages 18-19. Look for the zone controls section. [ Kevin  Sep 18, 2015 ]
    I do believe but I don't have mine hooked up that way. [ DAVID  Sep 18, 2015 ]
    Jim, The batteries, "AA" installed in a narrow door sliding them in front to back. The batteries are slid in end to end vs. side by side. I have balanced my remote on a pencil and it really is neutral, neither tipping forward or back. Hope this helps. [ ANDREW  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    The batteries are toward the bottom. The remote is beefy and won't slip out of your hand. Do not let this deter you from buying this awesome receiver. Crutchfield gives you 30-60 days to try it out. You will not be disappointed. I hope this helps. [ Rey R  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    The batteries are towards the top in my AVR 4 remote. [ NICHOLAS T  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    The battery door is in the upper portion of the remote. The balance point is not at the center of the remote but is slightly toward the top, under the volume toggle switch. I find that I use the buttons on the upper half of the remote the most. [ skipapple  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    Sorry, i do not own this receiver anymore and i do not remember where the battery compartment was on the remote. [ ROBERT  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    No, no USB port on the receiver, however most BlueRay and DVD player have one these days, and I sometimes use the one on mine to listen to music or run photos I have taken. This receiver may have less bells and whistles than some, but the sound is terrific. [ GUY  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    Unfortunately, no it does not. Your alternatives are to buy a stereo RCA-to-mini cord and plug it into the iPhone's headphone jack or use an AppleTV or similar device. [ EUGENE  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    This unit has only RCA inputs on the front panel. We own two of these receivers and have them both connected to a Sonos device. My wife and her girlfriends love to connect to Pandora, Spotify, or their iPhones through Sonos. We use the infrared port on both the Sonos unit and the receiver. This way the sound quality is much better and the music selection is unlimited. The way you want to use the unit is old school. [ SAL  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    No. It does not. [ Rey R  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    It has no USB ports, but there's a much better solution. If you are willing to spend $99 for an Apple Airport Express, which is a mini-wifi access point, it has an optical output which you can plug into this unit. Then you connect the iPhone via "Airplay" to the Express, and the music will channel wirelessly. I just tested it and it works great. Of course you can also stream the music off your laptop, iPad or Mac with the Express in the loop. I have had the 758 for 7 months now and am very happy with it. [ JYRI  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    yes. It will pass the signal undoctored. [ Rey R  Jul 15, 2015 ]
    I only have a 3d tv and it works fine. However I don't watch anything in 3d. Does your tv not have upscaling? What about your cable/satellite box? I would assume if it runs off HDMI, whatever goes in will come out the same via the HDMI cable. I'm not sure about that though. [ DAVID  Mar 16, 2015 ]
    I did have it hooked up to a Samsung, but mine was not a 4K. I actually did not keep the receiver as I found it more than I needed plus it did not have universal remote features. It is an awesome receiver, however, just not the right fit for my purposes. [ PETER D  Mar 13, 2015 ]
    Yes. Use the second HDMI output from the 4k BD player and connect it to the T758 for audio only and the main HDMI output from the BD player connected directly to the TV for video. [ Rey R  Mar 13, 2015 ]
    Yes. It does not have upscaling, but it does have pass-through. I have the Samsung curved 4K... all video sources pass through the 758. Works nicely. [ MATTHEW  Mar 13, 2015 ]
    Make sure surround setting is on "enhanced stereo" or "EARS" for best audio sound. -30 db is about the same to hear on replaced yamaha I had. Sound is better with NAD. [ STEVE  Apr 21, 2014 ]
    Alejandro Z, The NAD T758 is my first NAD purchase. That being said, the short answer to your question is "I don't know what is normal for NAD products". I can tell you I'm very pleased with my purchase. Not being a pro I can't offer a "walk through". Let me start by suggesting you may want to reset the audio signal on the internals of DVD player and TV (see your owners manual). My mains are old Polk RT's bookshelf loudspeaker's and the surrounds are old Polk Mini-Monitor's (neither are very efficient, but I love them anyway). The results of my first attempt at the setting up the unit was very disappointing (probably my own fault). So, I did a complete set-up several times before I became aware with the quality of this unit. I am running the signal input 'DIRECT' (no enhancement)and set the speakers manually (not using the Audyssey feature). Depending on the source I find that my output ranges from -34db to -24db, streaming (Netflix) being the strongest signal. CD's and DVD's all sound much better (this is where the signal varies the most) than they did with the Yamaha this unit replaced. The uncompressed audio is impressive. I have not used the tuner, so I cannot comment on the radio signal. I would try a complete restart and see if you notice a difference. I hope it works for you because I don't think you will be disappointed. By the way- I'm still tweaking. Good luck. alf [ ALAN L  Apr 18, 2014 ]
    I've had two NAD receivers and can say this is accurate. I have Klipsch towers and surround sound. To watch TV I'm usually between -30 and -20. For music it is loud from -30 to -40. Music approaching -20 gets really loud. The sound on a NAD is better than any other receiver I've heard at the price. If you like the sound I wouldn't concentrate on where the setting needs to be for the volume. -10 is very loud! [ DAVID  Apr 16, 2014 ]
    I have noticed the same issue or not an issue? Especially in the Dolby digital mode. I am driving Klipsch speakers. Forte's in the front, large center speaker and in ceiling rear speakers (Klipsch). In the stereo or enhanced stereo mode with music, I don't notice this. I did notice that this unit has much better separation than my old Onkyo and the dynamic sound in movies is much better with the NAD. I think that this sound db level depends on the input and the type of sound or mode you are in. Try changing the inputs from a dolby digital source and a stereo source at the same volume. I notice an increase in sound level due to the speakers being used. Most conversation in movies is only from the center speaker. [ BRETT  Apr 15, 2014 ]
    Hey Alejandro - Same thing with my unit. What I have noticed is it seems to depend on the source. I have direct tv and normally listen around -32 to -30. If I'm listening to a cd through my blu ray player then it's usually somewhere in the 40s. Either way, I've been very pleased with my NAD. Much better sound quality than my older Denon. Hope this helps! Kenny [ KENNY  Apr 15, 2014 ]
    I can't speak for all NAD products. For reasonable listening levels I usually would have the volume around -45db. The volume set to -30db would be loud enough to be heard well over a room full of people talking. [ JOHN  Apr 14, 2014 ]
    I recently installed the NAD T 758 to replace an older Denon AVR 3805 which had developed problems with the video - but still worked well on audio. I have a 5-1 speaker system - all PSB speakers. My main speakers are Stratus Golds, the others somewhat lesser quality but still deliver good sound. I have excellent hearing, and normally run the NAD T 758 at -37db for most TV channels. My wife has some hearing problems, so I increase volume to around -30db for her. It depends somewhat on the particular channel. However for programs like Cosmos which offer striking sound, I increase volume to circa -25db to better enjoy the experience. And I also run at about that level when listening to high quality audio. The NAD T 758 is less powerful (100 Watts/Channel) than the Denon it replaced (160 W/C), so I've had to up the volume with it to get good audio with it - and it still isn't as good as the old Denon. But it's quite satisfactory in terms of delivering audio I enjoy. To replace the old Denon in kind would have been significantly more expensive. Hope this helps. I will add that I've been well satisfied with my dealings with Crutchfield. Earlier I bought a Panamax M5-100 power conditioner from them to replace an older Monster that had been damaged by lightening. [ BARRY M  Apr 14, 2014 ]
    I think its normal for there avr's, as I have found -30 to be about normal listening level. And when I get near the -20's its gets really loud. but Some DVD's & Blu-rays seem to like near -25 or more through my oppo player. but if switch to another source at this volume makes me think I could clip my tweeters. I added a Adcom 5503 AMP to my HT set-up and it puts out 200watt x3 so it powers my front 2 speakers and center channel leaving the NAD to just power my 2 rear speakers. but it still seems to use the same volume level's or just a little less.

    I like immersive sound, so my unit typically runs -30 to -20, which is a fairly large jump. I have noticed that different sources will require different settings, so you may need to try another source and see if your volume setting changes (an mp3 player/smartphone will work quite well, as you can vary output to the receiver).

    Alejandro I think there is a typo in your question. Did you mean -30 to -20? I listen to the receiver in the -20 db region so in line with your experience. My understanding is that this is as the manufacturer intended. But system limits are set artificially low. It should be possible to override factory limits if you want to go louder. Not sure I understand your concern. I am very happy with the receiver. Sounds great for the money. Sal [ SAL  Apr 14, 2014 ]
    Hi, I am having the same issue with my receiver. I also had the unit turn off after playing it too loud (at about 90% volume) then it would take a few minutes to turn back on, so I called customer service about this issue and we came to the conclusion that it was a faulty unit and Crutchfield happily sent an exchange unit. I really didn't want to go through the hassle of unplugging everything and putting it back in the box, but after having the unit out of my cabinet, I continued to test it without anything else hooked up to it and turning the volume to maximum and it turned off three more times, having to unplug the unit and wait a few minutes to be able to turn back on. Even with my newly exchanged receiver, I also don't like the fact that you have to turn the volume way up, compared to other receivers, which at half volume are almost too loud. I am not sure if this is normal for NAD receivers. [ Alejandro  Apr 13, 2014 ]

    I had a high end technician do a manual setup. He wasn't too impressed with the Audyssey's capabilities. [ BARRY M  Apr 14, 2014 ]
    I finally got Audyssey to work (somewhat). It went through the entire process and got some weird settings. 6 of my speakers are identical (Polk TL3) and I have a Polk TL3 center. The front three are the exact distance from where I set the mic (on a tripod) yet the distance measurement was identical for center and right, with left being 3 feet further (19'/16'/16'). My rear four were a little better. It also showed my sub as being 11' away. My sub is no more than two feet from the wall where the TL3's are. My frequency settings were also screwy. I had one (center) at 90hZ, LF at 110hZ, RF at 120hZ and my rears as follows: RR@120hZ, SR@110hZ, SL@ 90hZ and LR @ 100hZ. I manually set them at 120 at the advice of Polk Audio tech support. Sounds awesome. I would have expected a better set up system with a near-one-thousand-dollar receiver. Shame on you NAD. [ Rey R  Feb 08, 2014 ]
    After at least 6 attempts, Audyssey did not work. We positioned the microphone in several different locations and Audyssey failed to work properly. My friend who owns an audio and video services company for over 20 years could not get the Audyssey to perform properly. He will be calling NAD directly to report the Audyssey failure. Has has performed the Audyssey process for literally hundreds of his clients, never encountering this problem. Perhaps the microphone itself is faulty. I don't really know what version is used in the T 758. How can I determine that? Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you, Anthony C. [ ANTHONY  Dec 31, 2013 ]
    I cant really tell, I had to get the manual from web page as they don't give you one and it doesn't say in the manual I downloaded. I did find a web page that compared it to Denon & Onkyo and they both were listed as audyssey multEQ XT & MultEQ where the t758 just said audyssey. I tried it but didn't have a lot of luck with it so I just manually set it up. but I did not put it on a tripod (I have 1 but didn't use it) also it said it could not pick some of my speakers though I could hear the test tone just fine myself. I may re-try the audyssey again. but I have listen to some Blu-ray Music audio that was awesome but sometimes I felt I gave up some many bells & whistles that I could have got with the Denon or Onyko. The set-up is weird and sort of a pain to use compared to a older Denon I use to have. [ DARRYL  Dec 30, 2013 ]
    I'm not certain which version of Audyssey is used. I thought it worked well enough. I would point out that the Audyssey software in this unit measures and makes adjustments for speaker distance, volume levels, large or small speaker (frequency range), and polarity from one listening position. It does not have the option to make measurements from multiple listening positions and there are no frequency adjustments (equalizer) - that I know of - for room acoustics. You have the option of 'tone control' independently (bass and treble). However, I think the unit sounds great and I like the simplified tone control. I hope that helps. [ MATTHEW  Dec 29, 2013 ]
