Bottom Line:   
Great unit considering it is a receiver. Clean, clear sound. Volume increments are a bit broad but it has plenty of power. Able to pick good FM signal. Run it with some good cables and turn off clipping at rear and with tone defeat switched on and you will hear a lot of depth, just as music was recorded.
A good no fuss unit which has proved to be very reliable.

Went to Perth Australia Hifi shop, wanting to upgrade my Yamaha amplifier to a Yamaha or Denon receiver with remote control. Old Yamaha made my Mission speakers sound fantastic, but vol control was getting noisy, and I wanted remote control.

Sales guy talked me into NAD, and I was sucked in, mainly on NAD's previous reputation.

This receiver is a step backwards.

Remote voilume control is too coarse, ie, one press gets too loud or too soft.

No loudness setting, ie sounds very flat for low levels. No grunt.

Never again.

I have had a couple of middle of the road receivers and was looking to take a step up. The NAD C720BEE in my opinion, is a big step up from the middle of the road receivers. I think that if I was to take the next step up in sound, I'd be paying a lot of cash. The C720BEE does not get hot, barely even warm to the touch and that is after playing the unit for 4 or 5 hours. Although the receiver is rated at 50 watts, it is as loud as my 80 watt Yamaha stereo receiver. These 50 watts offer a great deal of head room. There are plenty of inputs. The remote is fairly simple and works well. The C720BEE has RDS, which is a nice feature. FM and AM reception is excellent. Tone defeat is also a nice option. The sound is smooth, clean and defined. Vocalists sound, well, real. Strings come out warm and detailed. I would have liked for the unit to have had a sleep timer, but no big deal. The other thing that I would have liked is an outlet that would turn off and on my cd player when the C720BEE is turned on and off. Nad says that the outlet is "switched". It is switched in the sense that the cd player can be turned off with a switch on the back of the unit. It is not switched in the sense that the outlet will turn the unit on and off when the receiver itself is turned on and off. Again, a minor inconvenience. I had to buy a new cd player anyway, so I just made sure that the new player can be turned on and off with a remote. Although the outlet and sleep timer would have been nice, the sound and quality of this unit make it pretty easy to overlook these things. If you like the convenience of a receiver and great sound, this receiver is for you. Highly recommended.

I purchased the NAD C720BEE Reciever from a local hi end dealer about a week ago. I went in to purchase a NAD C521BEE cd player but after hearing the NAD C720BEE receiver for a short period of time through a nice pair of Dynaudio floor standing loudspeakers I was amazed. I have always liked a high quality receiver that sounds close to seperates and this baby does that. My main reason for buying this was I was using my son's tuner along with my Cambridge Audio 340A Int Amp in a bedroom and was going to have to turn the tuner back over to my son and I wasn't that happy with the Cambridge. When I got the receiver home and heard it in my bedroom I was shocked how it just blew away the Cambridge Audio. The Cambridge 340A is 40 watts per channel and the NAD is 50 watts per channel. Let me say there is no comparison in the amplifier section between the two. The NAD is in a different league all together, it sounds much more like 100 watts per channel than 50. Build is great as is the build on the Cambridge but the NAD has more way more balls, Dynamics, better soundstage, more 3-D to the sound. At first I thought $600.00 was way too much for a 50 watt per channel receiver but I was wrong. I've owned a few receivers over the years and this one is a keeper. By the way, it is now in my living room with the NAD C521BEE cd player, NAD T514 DVD player ,Buggtussel Mirac Floor Standing loudspeakers & Athena AS-P4000 Subwoofer. It sounds damn good but I'm getting ready to buy a different pair of speakers so I'll be back at Sounds Terrific soon...
