Let's cut to the chase here: this preamp/tuner/processor has so many features that we'll simply say that it will handle almost every entertainment source you can throw at it, and hand it back to you polished and ready for impeccable performance. 3D video over HDMI? Old school AM/FM radio? Digital audio from an Apple TV®? Yes, yes, and yes, and quite a few more options besides. With all this versatility, the sleek T 187 will serve as the cornerstone of your well-connected, high-end home theater system.
A future-proof modular design
NAD has continued to generate waves over the past few years because of the Modular Design Construction (MDC) philosophy permeating much of its product line. Essentially, the idea goes like this: why should you have to replace entire components of your home entertainment system every time the industry goes through a technological reset? It's expensive, and if you've enjoyed your current model and tweaked your setup to get the most from it, it's hard to face the hassle of swapping it out. So NAD places many of the input/output and signal processing functions on removable modules which can be replaced as new technologies arise. That way, you only pay for the feature updates you want.
Digital data, pure and clean
A modern home theater preamp/processor these days needs to be adept at handling HDMI signals. With 7 HDMI inputs and 2 HDMI outputs, the NAD T 187 stands ready to route the desired digital signal to your display devices with the touch of a remote button. NAD's "first, do no harm" philosophy with regard to the digital video signal ensures that the signal presented at the HDMI output will be identical in format to the one presented at the input, guaranteeing the integrity of the data stream. Analog video signals are seamlessly cross-converted, fed to the HDMI output, and faithfully reproduced at your display.
Attention to detail
Discriminating attention has been brought to bear on the audio side as well. Ample inputs for your music and home theater sources plus numerous surround decoding modes make this unit endlessly versatile. Audyssey MultEQ XT room correction allows you to custom-tune the T 187 to match your particular room and speakers. And the system can extend its reach across your home with its support for 3 additional zones in addition to your main home theater room.

Even if you have a very good, feature-packed AV receiver, one way you can upgrade in a meaningful way is to add a ballsy seven-channel amplifier. This brings me to the NAD T-975. Priced at $2,499, I will put this NAD's amp section up against any mass market receiver out there in terms of power, control and overall sonic heft. The NAD will kick it to the curb. NAD has loaded a lot of nice features into their seven-channel amp, including their soft clipping feature that I often used when I was teenager rocking out to Guns N' Roses (along with my cherry-flame-top Les Paul and a 50-watt Marshall amp) in my room. Today's crash-and-bang movies also keep this feature relevant, but NAD's conservative power ratings mean you will likely never push the amp to that level. The NAD amplifier sound is one of control. This amp has massive reserves of headroom and a wonderfully open midrange
• The NAD T-975 seven-channel amp has a lot of power for the dollar, as any NAD fan would expect.
• The binding posts are great on the T-975, whereas many other amps in the lower price class (and especially AV receivers) have crappy speaker binding posts.
The NAD T-975 is a very strong performer. With a modest yet feature-packed AV preamp or as an upgrade to a receiver-based home theater, you can expect to add a lot of spank to your system and open yourself up to the wonders of better speakers, such as MartinLogan, PSB, Bowers and Wilkins, or even THIEL or Revel, which can be harder to drive. The NAD T-975 has the current to drive them with ease and the control to make your happy with the mids and highs for years to come.
