NAD T 758 V3
7.1-channel home theater receiver with Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and Dolby Atmos®
Our take on the NAD T 758 V3 by Crutchfield's Deia Z.
A receiver for anyone who's serious about sound
NAD's T 758 V3 home theater receiver packs a wallop. Conservatively rated at 110 watts per channel, it brings more punch and dynamics to music and movies than you may be accustomed to hearing from an A/V receiver.
If you want a clear 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 hours.
Immersive home theater thrills
The T 758 V3 has full support for 4K and HDR video, so it works perfectly with the latest Ultra HD TVs and Blu-ray players. Dolby Atmos decoding gives you the most lifelike, multi-dimensional surround sound you can experience at home.
Designed with the future in mind
Clean, powerful amplification never goes out of style. But with rapidly changing developments in digital audio and video, it can be hard to commit to new gear when something newer may be on the horizon.
That's why NAD developed Modular Design Construction. The T 758 V3'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.
A world of wireless music at your fingertips
Connect the T 758 V3 to your home network for easy access to your digital music library and internet radio streaming. Bluesound's proprietary BluOS operating system lets you enjoy lag-free multi-room wireless music with compatible Bluesound speakers and components.
Built-in Bluetooth lets you stream music from your computer or a compatible mobile device for a nearly limitless selection of music. You can also use it to stream audio from connected sources to a pair of Bluetooth headphones.
A free app with advanced control options
Operate your system via Wi-Fi using the BluOS Controller app with your Apple® or Android™ device, or your Windows® or Mac® computer. It gives you flexible control over your music system, letting you access, control, and stream music to different Bluesound speakers and other BluOS players around your home. Synchronize multiple audio zones, or stream different music to different zones at the same time. You can even use your Apple Watch to control your system.
A wealth of high-resolution streaming options
BluOS can send 24-bit high-res music to any room in your home, without any loss of sound quality. Stream music from your personal library or from internet streaming services. The selection of supported services — including TIDAL, Spotify®, and Rhapsody®, among others — is one of the most impressive we've seen.
Two assignable channels for a second room
The T 758 V3's "surround back" channels are reassignable. So, if you have five speakers in your home theater, you can power two additional speakers in a second room. You can also use those two extra channels as height channels in a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos system, or to bi-amp your compatible front speakers for clearer sound.

Thanks for submitting your review
Features and Specs
Full Disclosure Power (FDP): 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.
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: The AV receiver's amplifier channels can be configured as Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and Surround Back Left/Right for Dolby TrueHD & DTS-HD 7.1ch playback.
- 5.1.2ch: This amplifier configuration provides Dolby Atmos
5.1.2ch playback with Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and
Overhead Left/Right 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 5.1ch surround.
- Zone 2: The receiver's amplifier channels can be configured as Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and Zone 2 for Dolby Digital & DTS 5.1ch playback in the main zone and 2ch PCM playback in the second zone.
Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The NAD T 758 V3 AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.

Immersive Surround Sound: The NAD T 758 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 758 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 the ultimate home theater experience.
- 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 758 V3 features DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and other DTS audio technologies.
Post Decoding Formats: The NAD T 758 V3 supports Dolby Surround & DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel decoding formats.
- 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.
Speaker & Room Calibration: The T 758 V3 utilizes NAD's SpeakerIQ speaker setup & the Dirac Live Room Correction Suite to calibrate the receiver to your loudspeakers and room. Future firmware update via a wireless network connection is required (available summer of 2017).
- NAD SpeakerIQ: NAD SpeakerIQ is an easy way for you to set up your home theatre within minutes. Using the supplied microphone, and with the push of a button on the included remote control, NAD SpeakerIQ sends test signals to the various speakers in the room and makes any necessary adjustments to the AV receiver based on measurements of the distance between speaker and listening position, loudness, and frequency response of audio signals from each speaker.
- Dirac Live: With Dirac Live, a state-of-the-art digital room correction technology, you can build the perfect listening environment that corrects for both the timing and colorations in sound using the supplied microphone and its powerful software.
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.
7.1Ch Input & 7.1ch Preout: The T 758 V3 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 T 758 V3 also features Front left, Front right, Center, Surround left, Surround right, Surround Back left, Surround Back right and Subwoofer pre-outs to connect the receiver to external power amplifiers.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The AV 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 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 connected.
Front-Panel Inputs: The NAD T 758 V3 is outfitted with an optical (toslink) digital connector and stereo analog RCA jacks on the front-panel for easy connection of external analog & digital audio devices.
HDMI 2.0b: The NAD T 758 V3 is equipped with three HDMI 2.0b inputs and one HDMI 2.0b output with supports for UltraHD 4K video, HDCP 2.2, 4:4:4 color gamut, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support.
- 4K/60Hz: The T 758 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 (no support for Dolby Vision or HLG).
Audio Return Channel (ARC): This feature of the AV receiver's HDMI monitor output 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 television.
HDMI Pass-through: When the T 758 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.

After chatting and talking with 2 different Crutchfield techs, I am convinced that this is the best choice for me. I already own a NAD T758 and this was the obvious choice. [ Rey Jun 16, 2018 ]
NAD audio quality. [ Scott May 03, 2018 ]
I am a big fan of NAD equipment, having some of their electronics for over thirty years. [ David Mar 22, 2018 ]
Looking for a well engineered AV receiver, with support for DTS-X. I have some NAD gear already, and I like it. I do care a lot about the audio performance. I wanted a receiver that gracefully allowed the video to perform without becoming a future constricting dependency. I think this gear is positioned to be most of that, and the possible bonus that future MDC upgrades may accommodate some unexpected future tech changes. On board BluOS streaming is a plus. [ Gene Feb 12, 2018 ]
I was going to spend the money on a miniDSP with Dirac which would have been $1000 and required amplification. I'm impressed with the modularity of this unit. I'm assuming they will release an HDMI 2.1 module. My marantz SR7010 has been giving me nothing but issues, so I'm gonna sell that at a loss and help to pay for this (minus the Dirac). [ Joseph Feb 12, 2018 ]
Was in the market for a new receiver and all the reviews raved about the sound quality in NAD products [ Oscar Feb 02, 2018 ]
Best affordable AVR with Dirac Live in the market. [ Yoelvis Jan 16, 2018 ]
5 questions already asked
The Zone 2 outputs on this receiver will only play analog audio when setup as Zone 2 speakers. You could reassign those zone 2 speaker level outputs to be used for bi-amping the front main speakers. This works with both digital and analog audio inputs. Technically, this would let you power 2 sets of speakers. Just keep in mind that they will play at the same volume level since they bi-amping setup causes those amp channels to output the exact same audio.

Joel, I am not sure about this as, although I have had the unit for a few months, my schedule has not allowed me time to install it. If you like I will see if I can find an answer. David [ David Jul 02, 2018 ]
HDR10 yes, Dolby Vision no ( or not yet according to some, and don't know about HLG [ JAMES Jul 02, 2018 ]
You could, but its a fairly powerful amp to just be doing 4 height channels. It might be a lot cheaper to have the separate amp doing the surrounds. [ JAMES Mar 14, 2018 ]
You can only power the front height channel with the t758 if you use the rear surround speaker outputs to do so. It may be easier to use a separate amp to power all height channels using the t758's pre outs. As a side note I really love the NAD 758v3. It works great with my 4K television. I also am impressed with the Dirac Live feature. It can really overcome shortfalls in room acoustics. The BluOS music streaming is amazing and the app is easy to use on my iPhone.

The height speakers require their own amp no matter what. I'm considering getting a 7ch amp to power the top 4 and my front 3. [ Joseph Mar 14, 2018 ]
Unfortunately you can not reasign the amps so you would need a separate amp for 2 of the heights [ SCOTT Mar 14, 2018 ]
The software issues have largely been resolved. The receiver would have random audio dropouts, issues with bass management, and some quirks with Dolby Atmos, but these have all been fixed by NAD through software updates after vigilant work by the enthusiast community continuously informing NAD of issues. To their credit, NAD has worked to correct all issues brought up by owners and members of popular online audio forums, and this receiver is ready for primetime. [ Sean Jan 22, 2018 ]
I don't know how to answer your question, since I don't know what the other issues were. One issue which may affect some people, is that the HDMI output on the 758 is not compatible with some older HD TVS (720p). Which means you will get no on screen display (OSD). And you have to have OSD to operate the 758. If you have a newer TV you should have no problem. [ Richard Dec 21, 2017 ]
The NAD provides two channels that can be used to power an overhead Atmos pair. The receiver also features a multi-channel RCA pre-amp output so, you can add an external amplifier to power any of the channels. Hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan Oct 18, 2017 ] Staff
