NAD Electronics has announced the launch of the T 758 V3i, a performance update to the T 758 AV surround sound receiver. The surround sound receiver will now come ready with Dolby Atmos, DTS Master Audio, BluOS high-res multi-room audio, Dirac Live, 4K UHD Video, and Apple AirPlay 2 all built-in. The T 758 V3i ($1499 U.S. MSRP) begins shipping later this month.
Most AV receivers available on the market today focus predominantly on the video and surround sound aspects. NAD firmly believes that there are many people for whom music will always come first.
Performance-minded enthusiasts want to embrace the ever-changing world of AV technology without destroying their original investment. So, NAD devised Modular Design Construction. Digital audio and video circuits are on replaceable modules. With MDC, the ability to upgrade the T 758 V3i to include future digital formats is totally unique and unprecedented.
Popular surround sound formats, including HD formats Dolby Atmos and DTS Master Audio, are decoded using the latest generation of high-speed multi-core DSP. Stereo source material can be converted to surround sound using NAD’s EARS surround mode. With full support for high-res audio formats like MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) included in the BluOS Player, the T 758 V3i also includes NAD’s PowerDrive amplifier, which features high current combined with high Dynamic Power to bring out the very best in any speaker.
The T 758 V3i offers high performance with the latest digital video technology, including Ultra video at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 pixels at 60 frames per second with 4:4:4 color gamut and High Dynamic Range support. Analog video sources are also supported on HDMI for simple one wire connection to a flat screen or projector. NAD leaves the video processing where it belongs, in the display, avoiding multiple format conversions. It also includes popular HDMI features, Audio Return Channel (ARC) and Consumer Electronic Control (CEC).
The automated setup of surround speakers, NAD Speaker IQ, is both accurate and easy with the supplied microphone and NAD remote control, according to the company. A second independent zone is included and can be powered by the internal back channel amplifiers.
