Question about NAD T743 Receiver

1 Answer

Using NAD t743 with Panasonic DMP-BD55

I'm considering purchase of a Blu-ray player and it appears Panasonic DMP-BD35 or 55 offer great value - and have Dolby True HD & DTS HD which is essential IMHO. My only question is which would be best compatible with my NAD T743. The BD35 only has digital optical out, while the 55 offers analog 7.1 audio out as well as optical & coax audio. Looking at my NAD manual it appears it has optical digital in. Will this allow me to connect audio from 35 (or 55) while inputting the video via component. Of course, maybe I don't need to pass the video through the NAD at all.
Any thoughts on how to best hook up? Anyone have experience with this setup?
Thanks!

The reciever you have has 5.1 inputs at the backof it.The only way to get Dolby True HD and DTS HD is to run the 7.1 analog out from the bd55 to the nad. You'll have to leave the 2 rear surround open on the bd55 leaving the remaining 6 connected to the nad. The digital coax and the optical will not transmit the hd data, only the analog out will. Run a hdmi right to your HD tv for picture bypassing your amp. this will workfine and you'll have the audio you want. You,ll have to change the input settings for dvd in your amp to 5.1 to recieve the audio.

Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei


The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

My NAD T743 will not switch on. I haven't used for a couple of months and it was working just fine before. Now I tried switching it on using both the power button on the amp itself and the remote, to no...


Hi, have you checked the power button in the back to see if it got pressed by accident? It's a round button located right under the speaker inputs in the back.

My Panasonic DMP-BD55 Blue ray won't palt together. Each works great by themself.


You might want to try re-setting the receiver. This will delete all of your settings... but helped me when I had a very similar issue w/ DMP BD35 and my onkyo sr606. After turning on the receiver, hold the VCR/DVR button and the on/standby buttons down simultaneously, until the display says "Clear". Now you will just have to set up all of the settings again

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference


Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player


Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

Turns itself off


NAD Technical Bulletin T743-H2005-06 describes the problem "Unit may shut down, shortly after turn on".  Reason: There is a diode on the standby board that maybe operating intermittently.  Solution: Locate and identify D756 on the standby board.  Change only if the diode is a 1N4148.  Change from a 1N4148 to a 1N4004 or equivalent.  
It is located near a transformer and some fuses.

Does not respond to remote control


I have had the T743 for about three years now. The first unit which I got from the local shop was doing exactily like your described after couple of minutes use. Well, I took is back and got a new one covered by the warranty.

Unfortunately I never got any explanation to this problem from my local shop or anywhere else, so I guess the only way is to contact your local shop.
