Product Specifications

The NAD T785 is heir to many generations of award winning NAD designs. This exceptional pedigree is evident in both the look and the feel of the T785, and it is unmistakable the moment you listen. It is NAD's insistence on creating products with remarkable sound quality at sensible prices that has made NAD the first choice among the most knowledgeable listeners from around the world. NAD's "Music First" philosophy dictates that endow the surround sound products with the same warm involving sound quality that makes music listening so rewarding with the stereo components. This stands in stark contrast to the competitors who view surround sound components primarily from a "content" point of view, with sound quality far down the list of priorities. Yet the T785 is second to none in terms of flexibility and up-to-theminute digital technology.
