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.

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
- 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
Post Decoding Formats: The NAD T 758 V3 supports Dolby
Surround & DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel
- 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
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
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 & Dolby Vision.
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.
3D-Ready: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to
own a receiver that passes 3D video signals. The T 758 V3 is able to pass 3D
signals from your Blu-ray player to your TV via the HDMI connection.
Lip Sync Delay: Video signals may take longer to process
than audio signals, depending on the connected video equipment. The audio signal
can be delayed up to 120ms to synchronize with the video signal.
