The wild child of audio visual receivers is a credit to the NAD lineage
Browse Receivers brands
Like many, I admire NAD's long-standing adherence to its 'music first' ideology, which basically boils down to putting performance before features that you might not use. In simpler times this was a clear signpost that the brand prioritised sonic integrity above all else. But advocating feature frugality is a harder sell in today's AVR market, particularly when it has become dominated by Japanese brands (notably Onkyo) which cram their receivers with every conceivable piece of tech going.
