Question about NAD T763 Receiver

Volume and multi channel output issue

My nad T763 currently 11mnths old decided to loose output on both main speakers and rear speakers, but centre and sub output still work. but! centre and sub are either flatout or nothing. volume is flat out regardless of volume position unless it's at infinite db, and as soon as you move it 1 step of infinite it goes flatout again. protection circuit doesn't cut in and all modes work as normal. centre and sub obviously only work in surround modes. any clues anyone?

Re: volume and multi channel output issue

Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

Hi I have a problem with my NAD 763 receiver. It suddently stopped putting sound out of the speakers. Checked speakers fuse, checked all wire and connectors. reset to factory default. tried multiple...

Is it muted?

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

NAD T-763 receiver. cannot get surround sound. all speakers work. should the 7.1 and or surround be connected to the receiver and what else. stereo works fine....two front speakers, in stereo mode. ...

Have you looked at the manual? There is no internal source that would produce 7.1 audio other than the test tones. Attach a multichannel source according to ITS manual.

NAD C740 Chanel B Speakers not working The speaker output A is working properly, then the output B is completely silent. I install differents speakers and even the same speakers. no sound from the B...

possibly the causes are: 1. defective channel B power amp board. But try operating first with the built in tuner, if it's ok the RCA cable from your other sources(DVD player, etc...) might have broken internal conductor.
2. if it has the speaker switch(A, B, A+B) try toggling it, might also just loose contacts.
if the trouble is #1, leave everything to your trusted qualified technician, he knows what to do, unless you want to tweak/repair it by yourself...hope this helps ;-)

I have a Denon AVR587 running in 7.1. I have an unusual problem as the rear channels seem to play all sounds at a higher pitch and lower volume than all the other speakers on the system. I am using a voice...

Hey ajn1n1 we need to fine where the tinnyness is coming from Lets do a test shall we,

hook up your voice matched polks to your front left and right speaker outputs on your amp to see how they sound as mains. if you hear tinny then its the speakers. sometimes speaker need to be broken in a bit.

hook up your main front left and right speakers to your rear outputs. if you hear the tinnyness then its the output of that channel on the amp or a setting. Newer amps let you change speaker sizes in the menu so that it can change over the crossover for that channel.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.
