NAD Electronics announced that their highly anticipated 9 channel flagship AVR, the T 778, is available.

NAD’s newest reference model builds on its legacy with an expansion of their unwavering philosophy of real world performance, simplicity of operation, and future upgradeability. The T 778 is shipping with an MSRP of $2999. The T 778 features the latest developments with NAD’s HybridDigital technology to create 9 high current/high power channels of amplification with improved efficiency. Designed with the company’s full disclosure approach to power ratings, the NAD AVR conservatively delivers 9 X 80W FDP and 9 x 160W FTC with all channels driven at rated distortion.

For flexibility, the amp channels are configurable to be used for surround or second zone audio. The silent black background and explosive dynamics afforded by this amplifier technology add lifelike realism, drama and excitement to all your music and movies. A low profile 3U rack mount chassis and TFT touch display combine with certified driver support for all major control systems to make the T 778 the perfect choice for advanced custom home theatres. The T 778 is second to none in terms of flexibility and up to the minute digital technology.

Only NAD offers Modular Design Construction (MDC), the company’s proven method for preventing premature obsolescence. 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos, DTS Master Audio combine with Dirac Live room correction to deliver hyper realism that captures every dimension of a performance. Add bit perfect 4K UHD video pass through and the T 778 delivers the most accurate sound and image experience you’ve ever had. Musical performance is outstanding with High Res Multi room streaming via BluOS.

As with all NAD components, the company’s latest offering continues their ‘simple is better’ design philosophy. This sensible approach contributes to ease of use and maximizes performance where it counts. A perfect example is the striking new touch screen and ergonomic refinements that simplify operation and ease of access. The T 778 features NAD’s legendary sound quality along with complete compatibility with all the latest features and formats to ensure lifelike music and movie enjoyment.
