NAD T778

The NAD T778 is a next-generation AV amplifier featuring 9 channels of Hybrid Digital amplification.

The NAD T 778 features the latest developments in NAD’s Hybrid Digital technology to create 9 high current/high power channels of amplification with improved efficiency. Designed with NAD’s full-disclosure approach to power ratings, the NAD AVR conservatively delivers 9 X 100W FTC and 9 x 80W FDP, 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 NAD T778 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 NAD T778 features NAD’s legendary sound quality along with complete compatibility with all the latest features and formats to ensure lifelike music and movie enjoyment.

Most A/V receivers available on the market today focus predominantly on the Video and Surround Sound aspects, leaving audio circuitry almost as an afterthought. NAD firmly believes that there are many people for whom music will always come first. With NAD’s reputation for high value/high performance, it was apparent that the T 778 would have to please the most demanding Audiophiles and Videophiles.

“The NAD T778 packages that sound quality with the most compelling digital technologies such as BluOS, MQA, Bluetooth aptX HD, and Dirac Live in a user-friendly format,” commented Greg Stidsen, NAD’s Chief Technology Officer. “NAD firmly believes that there are many people for whom music will always come first.

    This is a second review in a week and again I am left completely satisfied with the attention to detail and personal interest shown by Richard and Audiologica. Rest assured that should I require any further audio equipment Audiologica will be my first stop?

    WRT the NAD T778 I have not had a chance to fully appreciate all of its potential; what I can say is that it was straightforward to set up, and even out of the box both stereo music and surround films sounded superb. Will be interesting to compare when I have had the chance to employ Dirac. I am at this point very happy with the NAD.

      Russ – so glad that you are happy and thanks again for the kind feedback. With the DIRAC it will sound incredible!

      Kind regards,
      Richard

      Kind regards,
      Richard

    Amazing service and communication would definitely recommend and use again!

  4. Christopher (verified owner)

    As an AVR it sounded great straight out of the box (despite poor instructions), blowing my current Denon atmos system out of the water (without even setting Dirac up) and in two channel mode, giving my Arcam A39 a run for its money, though maybe not quite as refined.

    Looking forward to setting it up properly (Dirac) once room is recarpeted but so far would thoroughly recommend this.

    ps even the ‘other half likes the look of it!!!!

  5. William (verified owner)

    Excellent service from Richard. Unfortunately my unit was faulty (dreaded bang and blue smoke!). Less than 24 hours after it happened my replacement unit had arrived and the faulty one collected. Could not have asked for better customer service! Oh, and the amp is incredible!

  6. John Murray (verified owner)

    My first purchase from Audiologica and it was excellent. From Richard’s confirmatory phone call within 30 minutes of my order, to the next working day delivery, everything was excellent. Good old fashioned personal service. Highly recommended.

  7. Martin Best (verified owner)

    The first thing to say is that Richard at Audiologica is tremendously friendly and knowledgeable – I have to say, I am delighted with my purchase as well. Service was fantastic with next day delivery and great communication throughout the whole process. Can’t ask for anything more.

  8. Jeremy B. (verified owner)

    An excellent purchasing experience. Richard has selected a wide range of quality products which he supports in a helpful, efficient and knowledgeable manner. I can highly recommend Audiologica.

  9. Robert K. (verified owner)

    Richard answered all my questions, shipped the AVR ahead of time and now I’m very happy with my purchase.

  10. Paul Snelling (verified owner)

    Excellent prompt customer service. Much appreciated. Thanks

    This is a long time coming I have had the NAD T778 AVR for nearly a year and all I can say that it is my most favourite piece of audio equipment I have ever brought i enjoy the sound quality music & movie appreciate it every day and especially once you have mastered Dirac . One thing I have learned with the NAD T778 and this would go for any other new modern equipment for audio/visual is a good WIFI connection for Dirac & BluOS and even if you have got good HDMI leads replacing them i think is must when you invest in new AVR .
    Richard was very helpful in my purchase and very knowledgeable…and his after sales lets just say he was very patient when I could not work something out.. and help me through it..
    I would recommended AUDIOLOGICIA if I was buying anything Audio Visual..
    Thank you Richard and Audiologicia

    Having worked my way through AVRs from Yamaha, Denon & Marantz over the past 20years, I updated to the NAD T778 and all I can say is ‘WOW’ what a difference.

    Out of the box, the sound is cleaner and more precise and, once Dirac has been run, the surround effects are streets apart from the other brands.

    If there is a downside, it has a few quirks (nothing major) and in those 20yrs, whilst none of the mainstream amps failed, the NAD did.

    On the upside the problem was sorted by Richard who arranged for the NAD to be fixed & back to me in a week.

    On a company front, Richard was absolutely fantastic at getting things sorted and I cannot recommend him enough. It’s a pity other retailers can’t take a lesson out of his book.

    5* for the NAD & I’d give 6* to Richard if I could
