NAD T758 V3i: AV Receiver worthy of consideration

NAD Electronics introduces the updated T 758 V3i AV receiver. The new product differs from its predecessor, the T 758 V3, by supporting AirPlay 2 technology. Along with it, the use of the Siri voice assistant has become available. Otherwise, the T 758 V3i remains an exact copy of the previous model, still maintaining the company’s “simpler is better” philosophy. As stated, this model is aimed at the needs of not only home theater lovers, but also audiophiles.

In the AV receiver, digital audio and video circuits are placed in separate modules, which in the future can be replaced with more modern options. The existing AM230 audio module supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD Master Audio processing, and is also capable of MQA processing. The PowerDrive circuit is responsible for amplification. The Speaker iQ auto-calibration system and included microphone allow the AV receiver to sound correctly in a specific room in a matter of minutes. The Dirac Live room acoustic correction function will also be useful.

The NAD T 758V3i output power is 2 x 120 W into 8 ohms in stereo mode or 7 x 60 W / 8 ohms into all channels. You should not compare these values ​​with the marketing indicators of such amplifiers as Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon, Marantz, Pioneer, etc., which in most cases claim very high power, but often these data are obtained with only one working channel and at a high level of harmonic distortion.

The model supports all HD audio formats, such as DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos (DTS: X will be added with a future firmware upgrade). This amplifier has a pair of assignable outputs in Zone 2, additional rear channels, but no additional channels for the Prologic IIz front height speakers (only ProLogic II and IIx modes are available). The VM130 video module’s capabilities include 4K video at 60 frames per second, 4:4:4 color space, and HDR. This model has three HDMI inputs with one output. The HDMI functionality of the AV receiver includes ARC and CEC return channel. There is also a USB input, and the remaining digital audio connectors offer a pair of coaxial and optical inputs.
