Bottom Line:   
This is the worst receiver that I have ever owned.

I have always had a good opinion of NAD products until I bought this NAD T 743 as a replacement for my old NAD receiver that perished in a house fire.

There is a highly audible buzz emitted by the amplifier, at any volume, that is very distressing. Even the cheapest amps that I have ever listened to sound better than this piece of junk.

I brought it back to the dealer to have it "repaired" and was told that is the way it was designed and there was nothing they could do about it.

Now that the front right channel only works when I thump the receiver up and down several times, I am looking forward to replacing it with a mass market brand that will probably sound much better and cost a lot less.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this NAD-743 second hand. Overall I a m very pleased with stereo sound reproduction.
Hoever when it comes to DTS, 5:1 (SACD) DTS or even Dolby there is a very annoying tone coming from the cenrter channel -INDEPENDENT- of volume, in other words the sound is there form -68dB all the way to +6 dB at the same intensity,but completely gone at volume at -00. It seems this is a common flaw in this model and corrected in the NAD-743-v2.

Too bad for all these T-743 owners like me.

Workaround for this problem:

use low-sensitive center speaker or use a L-PAD (or e.g. 24 ohm 20Watt resistor in series) to reduce the power to the center and then adjust teh indivdual center speaker volume setting accordingly. The tone is then dimmed, but still audible from listing position...

Bottom Line:   
Bought used off Ebay a year ago. Excellent sound. Warm and clear with great depth. Sounds like more than 50 watts a channel in Stereo Mode. Makes my Harman Kardon sound cold and without body. Reminds me of some Carver seperates I had years ago. I am using this with some modified B&W CDM 1's. In a small to medium room this reciever has plenty of power unless you are really into SPL's. All the functions work well and is easy to set up. Unit does not run as hot as most of the recievers I have had. Over all hard to beat. I believe this reciever won product of the year several years ago when it came out. I can see why. If you can get a good deal on a used one you will be very pleased.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this a few months ago along with a Nad DVD player and Wharfedale 5.1 speaker set. I'm very pleased with its performance.

The receiver is heavy and seems to be well-built. I have my 37" LCD TV, DVD player, and iPod dock connected to it. The front inputs are great for connecting a camcorder or video game console (such as a PS2). The sound quality is exactly what you'd expect from Nad gear-- amazing. Everything Nad says about this thing is bang on: phenomenal home theater performance without sacrificing musical performance. There's plenty of power available for most users. I live in an apartment building but that hasn't stopped me from pushing the receiver a few times. In addition, the remote is excellent (an area that attracted some criticism in the past) and the receiver has an attractive, clutter-free appearance.

The only criticism I have is with the optical inputs. They're spaced so close together that it's difficult to have both connected simultaneously. One cable gets in the other's way making the plugging-in process a little frustrating. (Perhaps I could have shopped around for cables with smaller ends.) Other than that, a great piece of gear that truly exceeded my expectations.

Using NAD C352 As a Power Amp with NAD T743

Wondering if I can use my NAD integrated C352 to power my fronts and let my NAD T743 receiver power all other channels? Any one know how I would go about connecting the C352 to the T743 to accomplish this? Thanks!Read More »

Help needed with NAD T743
