Anyone using the new NAD AVRs? It has Dirac live!

Just realised the NAD receivers are using Dirac live!  :o :o and can store 5 sound profiles/house curves. Nice.

And the parts are modular. Nad designed it to be upgradable by parts, e.g. for hdmi version proofing. Quite smart

Anyone using the t758 and t777? The online reviews are quite good

Personally, I would't want a "middle party" to "interfere" with video signals from the source origin to final display device, without any knowledge on what are the pros and cons that may affect the video quality in final presentation.
Hence my current setup is straight feed of HDMI from players to the TV. 2 HDMI for video, 1 for HDMI Audio(?)... that's fine...

How much ? NAD should be quite VFM...but will you want to settle for a mediocre hardware for the sake of getting the Dirac Live?

Have you heard of it or just based on specification? Or impression of NAD?

GP aka KEF agent has HT setup using NAD AVR with Dirac Live (not sure enabled or not). Go and have a listen. Good or not in one’s ears are subjective. It is paired with Oppo 203 as BRP. Speakers used are either Q/R series ones.

No Bro. U r right, I should not have come to a conclusion when I did not even hear the NAD in action in person. The impression I had derived from some of the past sources I read about NAD gears. My apologies to the NAD owners if I have offended anyone with my remarks. Agreed that one should not discount immediately after one have actually "hear" the sound performance first.

I take back my words...it is wrong of me to pass a negative remarks on NAD products when I personally have not experience it myself. My advice, go and have a listen and you will be the judge for yourself.
