User Review: T 747 A/V Surround Sound Receiver, HTR 3 Remote Control - Ideal upgrade to audiophile home cinema sound

March 28, 2011

Products: T 747 A/V Surround Sound Receiver, HTR 3 Remote Control

I've just purchased this unit together with an HTR 3 system remote as an extra item. About the receiver: I've got everything that was "promised" - nice detailed sound even at low volume levels (with full dynamics of course), tight and controlled bass at high volume levels, enhanced soundstage. New details appear that I couldn't hear on my Onkyo 797 earlier. Easy handling, excellent A/V presets for each source which can further configure the pre-programmed listening modes. I also benefit from the component video upscaling function since my 720p projector is hooked up via component cables. BDs are seen in the same quality as so far but DVDs look much better: no zigzags and shades around contours and edges, the image onscreen is less "digital". This less digital characteristic also applies to the sound of the 747. About the remote: Onkyo remotes have been the benchmark for me for years. I was excited to see whether this one could learn the functions of my naughty IPTV set-top box. And it COULD!!! So now I control 8 appliances with the HTR 3 flawlessly and a bunch of remotes sleeps in the garage in a plastic bag (batteries removed). I also like the blue illuminated buttons on the remote controller (blue for me means audiophile). Now I see 4-5 blue leds when I watch movies including NAD's power ON indicator.

Summary: nice & simple looking unit, excellent sound performance. Thanks NAD, I am sure that the future NAD products will be as good as these ones (receiver + remote)! I miss one little feature however: a "childproof" max. volume limiter together with a power on volume control function in order to prevent the receiver from potential damages.
