REAR PANEL CONTROLS (FIGURE 1)
1. FM & AM ANTENNA
AM ANTENNA - An AM loop antenna is supplied with the T742 and is
required for AM reception. Open the clip terminal lever and insert the
wire from the antenna. Closing the lever will lock the wire in place
(Fig. 5). Test various positions for the antenna, but always ensure the loop
is placed vertically for best reception. Placing the antenna close to large
metal items such as metal shelves or radiators may interfere with
reception.
FRANÇAIS
NOTE
When reception is not satisfactory using the supplied AM loop
antenna alone, connection of an external antenna is recommended.
Do not connect anything other than a loop antenna to the AM
ANTENNA terminal. Do not remove the AM loop antenna. The
antenna cable to the loop antenna must not exceed 3 meters.
DEUTSCH
NEDERLANDS
FM ANTENNA - A ribbon wire FM antenna is included and should be
connected to the FM connector at the rear of the unit (Fig. 4) using the
‘balun’ adapter supplied. The ribbon aerial should be mounted on a
vertical surface and placed so that it forms a ‘T’.
Experiment with placement of the antenna to find the position that gives
the best signal strength and lowest background noise. An inadequate FM
signal normally results in high levels of hiss, especially in stereo, and
interference from external electrical sources. In areas of poor FM
reception, the tuner section’s performance can be improved by using an
externally mounted FM antenna. A qualified aerial installer will be able to
advise and fit a recommended aerial for your reception conditions.

SUBWOOFER OUT - Unlike for the full range five channels as described
above, there is no power amplifier built-in for an additional subwoofer.
The Subwoofer pre-out allows for connection to a sub-bass speaker
system with its own external or integrated power amplifier (“active”
subwoofers).
7. MONITOR OUT
Composite Video and S-Video outputs for connecting a TV or Video
Monitor to view video sources connected to DVD to VIDEO 5. Usi
ideo RCA-to-RCA lead, connect the “Video Line In” on the TV or
V
monitor to the MONITOR OUT.
Note that an S-Video signal will also be available as a Video Composite
signal on Monitor out, if the corresponding source is selected. The
composite video input signals (No. 4; yellow sockets) will also be available
as S-Video signal on the Monitor Out socket. If you use both S-Video and
Video composite sources, you will only need to connect the S-Video
Monitor Out to the television or projector.
8. SPEAKERS: FRONT, CENTER & SURROUND SPEAKERS
FRONT SPEAKERS - Connect the right speaker to the terminals marked
‘FR’ ensuring that the red terminal is connected to the ‘+’ terminal on
your loudspeaker and the black terminal is connected to the
loudspeaker’s ‘-’ terminal. Connect the terminals marked “FL” to the left
speaker in the same way.
SURROUND SPEAKERS - This connects the Surround loudspeakers that
are used when the T742 is operated in Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro
Logic, EARS Surround sound modes or with the 5.1 Ch. input selected.
Connect the surround speakers in the same way as described with
FRONT SPEAKERS above; connect the left surround speaker to the set of
terminals marked ‘SL’ and the right surround speaker to the terminals
marked ‘SR’.
NOTE
The Centre and/or Surround speakers must be selected as Large or
Small in the Set-up menu “SPK SET” when speakers are connected to
these outputs.
9. SOFT CLIPPING
When any amplifier is driven beyond it’s power output capabilities, a
hard, distorted sound can be heard on very loud sounds. This is caused
by the amplifier cutting off or ‘hard clipping’ the peaks of sound that it
was not designed to reproduce. The NAD Soft Clipping circuit gently
limits the output of the system to minimize audible distortion if the
amplifier is overdriven.
If your listening involves moderate power levels you may leave the Soft
Clipping switch off. If you are likely to play at high levels that exceed the
amplifier’s power capability, then switch Soft Clipping on.
ENGLISH
FRANÇAIS
Connect the centre speaker in the same way as described with front
speakers above.
PORTUGUÊS
NOTES
• Never connect the T742’s speaker outputs and the speaker outputs
of an external amplifier to the same speakers. When headphones are
inserted the signals from all audio pre-out outputs will be muted.
• Before making any connections, check that the T742 and the power
amplifiers it will be connected to are switched off. With volume
turned down to a low level, switch power on only after all
connections have been made.
DEUTSCH
CENTER SPEAKER - The terminal marked ‘C’ connects to the centre
loudspeaker that is used when the T742 is operated in Dolby* Digital,
DTS, Dolby Pro Logic, EARS surround sound mode or with the 5.1 Ch.

ESPAÑOL
NOTE
This unit is designed to produce optimum sound quality when
speakers with impedance within the set’s ranges are connected.
Please check the following information and choose speakers with the
correct impedance for the connections.
ITALIANO
6. AUDIO PRE-OUTS / SUBWOOFER OUT
AUDIO PRE-OUTS - The NAD T742 receiver has five power amplifiers
built-in to power all the speakers connected to it (Left, Right, Centre, Left
Surround, Right Surround). It is also possible to use the T742 as a preamplifier to drive external power amplifiers. This way, you use all the
control functions the T742 provides, such as input select, surround
mode, volume, tone controls, etc., but the external power amplifier
actually powers the speaker connected to it instead of the T742’s
integrated power amplifier for that channel.
SVENSKA
Always use heavy duty (16 gauge; 1.5mm or thicker) stranded wire to
connect loudspeakers to your T742. Unscrew the speaker terminal’s
plastic bushing. Insert the bare cable end into the hole of the terminal and
then secure the cable by tightening down the terminal’s bushing (Fig. 6).
To avoid any danger of bare metal from the speaker cables touching the
back panel or another connector, ensure that there is only 1/2” (1.27cm)
of bare cable and no loose strands of speaker wire.
9
10. IR INPUT
This input is connected to an output of an infrared receiver. This
This remote control input is usually used in custom installations. Ask
your dealer or custom isnstaller for further details.
ENGLISH
11. AC POWER CORD
After you have completed all connections to the amplifier, plug the AC
line cord into a “live” wall socket.
DEUTSCH
For switching Stand-by/Power On of the external component, connect
the 12V trigger output of the T742 to the remote component’s DC input
jack. The plug required is a standard 3.5mm Mini-Jack plug (“mono”):
The tip is the live or + connection, the shaft of the jack is the 12V trigger
- or ground connection.
NEDERLANDS
NOTES
• Check the specifications of the trigger input terminal on the other
component to ensure it is compatible with the T742’s 12V trigger
output.
• The T742’s 12V trigger output voltage is 12V DC. The total maximum
current must not exceed 200mA. Typically, NAD 12V input triggers
draw less then 10mA of current.
• NAD components equipped with 12V input triggers are fully
compatible with the T742’s 12V trigger output.
• Before making any connections to any 12V trigger input or output,
make sure all components are disconnected from the AC mains.
ESPAÑOL
FRANÇAIS
12. 12 VOLT TRIGGER OUT
The 12V trigger output allows to remotely switch on or off ancillary
equipment such as a CD player, power amplifier, etc. which are also
equipped with a 12V trigger input. This can also be an AC outlet power
strip equipped with a 12V trigger input. The 12V trigger output is
activated whenever the T742 is switched to normal operational mode
from Stand-by or Off.
ITALIANO
Failure to observe the above may result in damage to the T742 or any

27. DVD1 / DVD2 SWITCH
This switch is located inside the battery compartment of the AVR 2, and
changes the DVD functions between DVD1 (codes for T550 and L55
DVD Players) and DVD2 (codes for T531 and T571 DVD Players).
SETTING UP THE SURROUND SYSTEM
To obtain the best results in any of the Surround Modes it is important
that the T742 is carefully set up. The Dolby Surround system requires
that you specify the parameters of your speaker setup so it can properly
direct the decoded surround sound signal in the correct proportion to
create the most accurate theatrical effect. Dolby also allows for the
redirection of bass frequencies to the most appropriate speaker(s). This
is also known as “bass management”.
The setup procedure is broken down in three sections:
1 Speaker Settings (by Front Panel controls)
2 Channel Delays (by Front Panel controls)
3 Level Settings for correct Channel Balance (by Remote Control
handset)

ADJUSTMENTS
Pressing the front panel SET UP button (first press) the display will show
SPK SET. Rotating the VOLUME/SETUP knob alternately cycles the setting
between SPK SET, DELAY , EXIT, and then “wraps” back to SPK SET.
Speaker Settings - First you need to indicate which speakers are
connected to your T742. Besides the Main speakers (Left & Right), these
can include a Centre, two Surround Speakers and a Subwoofer.
To Adjust Speaker Settings - When Front Panel Display shows SPK SET,
pressing the SET UP button on front panel again (second press) will enter
the SPEAKER SETTING menu. Rotate VOLUME/SETUP knob to cycle
between MAIN > CEN > REAR > SUB > EXIT.
First stop at MAIN and display shows LAR (current setting for FRONT or
MAIN speakers). Press the SET UP button again to change the size. Each
press of the SET UP button will change the setting for that speaker:
MAIN (Front Speakers) can be selected as LRG or SML
Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until CEN LAR (current setting for
the CENTER speaker) appears in the display window. Press the SET UP
button again to change the size. Each press of the SET UP button will
change the setting for that speaker:
CEN (Centre Speaker) can be selected as LAR, SMA or OFF.
The ON mode is used when the speaker is active and receives the audio
information intended. The OFF mode is used when the speaker is
inactive. Audio signals intended for speakers set to the OFF position are
redirected to the main speakers.
Using a separate centre channel speaker will allow the dialogue to cut
through even the biggest sound effects and musical scores. Having the
sound spread across three front speakers also stabilizes the stereo image,
making the usable listening area much bigger. For best results, you
should consider using a centre speaker. Ideally it should be the same type
as the left and right speakers.
Installing surround speakers will greatly enhance the surround experience
as these add considerably to the overall “ambience”.
Dolby Pro Logic encoded material is deliberately limited in dynamic range
and frequency bandwidth for the surround channel and thus only
requires speakers of far lesser specification compared to the front
channels. Dolby Digital however is a full range system, with two
independent surround channels and with dynamics equal to that of the
front channels. For this reason it is advisable to choose loudspeakers
which are similar in power handling and performance capability to those
of the front channels. For best results, the Surround loudspeakers should
not beam the sound directly at the listener. One way of achieving this is
to use ‘dipole’ Surround speakers which aim the sound down the walls
rather than directly into the room.
Each millisecond corresponds approximately with 1 foot or 30.5
centimeters.
NOTE
The channel delay option is not available in DTS surround mode.
TO ADJUST DELAY SETTINGS
When Front Panel Display shows DELAY, pressing the SET UP button on
front panel again (second press) will enter the DELAY SETTING menu.
Rotate VOLUME/SETUP knob to cycle between CENT > REAR > EXIT.
First stop at CEN 0mS (current delay setting for Centre Speaker). Press
the SET UP button again to change the delay setting. Rotate the
VOLUME/SETUP knob to change centre delay adjustment in 1mS
increments from 0mS to 5mS. Press SET UP button again to exit Centre
delay adjustment.
Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until REAR 0mS (current delay setting
for Surround Speakers) appears in the display window. Press the SET UP
button again to change the delay setting. Rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob
to change centre delay adjustment in 1mS increments from 0mS to 15mS
in Dolby Digital mode, or 15mS to 30mS in Dolby ProLogic mode. Press SET
UP button again to exit Rear delay adjustment.
Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until EXIT appears in the display
window. Press the SET UP button again to exit DELAY SETTING MENU.
Press the SET UP button again to exit SET UP MENU. Your speaker
settings are now complete. If in the future you add, change, or move
speakers, this setup procedure should be repeated.

The LARGE mode is used when the speaker is full range and capable of
reproducing the entire audible frequency spectrum 20Hz to 20kHz. The
SMALL mode is used when the speaker is not capable of reproducing the
deepest bass portion of the audio frequency 20Hz to 100Hz.
ESPAÑOL
TIPS ON WHICH SPEAKER SETTINGS TO USE
The four modes available to the T742’s setup are: LARGE or SMALL and
ON or OFF.
CHANNEL DELAYS
For the best surround sound performance it is important that sound from
all speakers reach the listener’s ears at the same time. Because the
surround/ rear speakers are usually closer to the listener than the front
speakers, there is tendency for the ear to localize sounds to the rear,
because the ear takes most notice of the sounds that arrive at the head
first. Similarly, the centre speaker is often closer to the listener than the
front left and right speakers. To compensate for this, the T742 can
slightly delay the audio sent to the centre and rear (closer) speakers. In
this way, when playing Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro logic soundtracks, the
sound from all speakers arrives uniformly at the listening position as
intended by the film’s producer.

Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until EXIT appears in the display
window. Press the SET UP button again to exit SPEAKER SETTING MENU.
Press the SET UP button again to exit the SET UP MENU. Your speaker
settings are now complete. If in the future you add or change speakers,
this setup procedure should be repeated.
Dolby Digital uses a dedicated Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel. If a
subwoofer has been selected, the LFE channel will be fed to the subwoofer output. If no subwoofer is selected the LFE channel is redirected
to the front left and right speakers.
PORTUGUÊS
Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until SUB ON (current setting for
the Subwoofer) appears in the display window. Press the SET UP button
again to change the setting. Each press of the SET UP button will change
the setting for that speaker:
SUB (subwoofer) can be set to ON, OFF.
Many film soundtracks rely heavily on very low frequency sound effects
which are difficult for normal or smaller hi-fi speakers to reproduce. To
faithfully reproduce these low frequencies you can use a specially
designed low frequency loudspeaker with its own built-in amplifier
(“active subwoofer”). Because it is difficult to hear which direction very
low frequencies are coming from, you only normally need one subwoofer and this can be placed virtually anywhere in the room. The
Subwoofer output of the T742 is designed specifically to drive a
subwoofer system.
SVENSKA
Now rotate the VOLUME/SETUP knob until REAR LAR (current setting for
the SURROUND speakers) appears in the display window. Press the SET
UP button again to change the size. Each press of the SET UP button will
change the setting for that speaker:
REAR (Surround Speakers) can be set to LAR, SMA or OFF.

FRANÇAIS
TIPS FOR SETTING DELAY
Measure the distance from the listening position to the centre speaker
(dC) and to one of the front speakers (dFL or dFR). Subtract the centre
channel distance from the front L or R channel distance. For example, if
the front speakers are 12 feet (3.7 m) from the listening position and the
centre speaker is 10 feet (3.0 m), the difference is 2 feet (0.6 m). For this
example the centre channel delay is set to 2 milliseconds or ms.
The Channel Balance for each speaker can be adjusted in 1dB
increments. Continue to calibrate the level for each speaker until equal
loudness is achieved at your listening position. A more accurate
adjustment can be made using a sound level meter, if available. Set the
meter to “Slow” and “C-weighted” modes and re-check the settings
with the meter placed in several different positions in the general
listening area.
The T742 can delay the centre channel output up to 5 milliseconds and
thus compensates for centre channel speakers that are up to 5 feet
(1.5m) closer to the listening position than the front left and right
speakers.
Press the TEST button again to leave or cancel the Test mode, any
changes will be memorized automatically.
NOTES
In rare system setups, the centre channel speaker is actually further
away than the front left and right speakers. In these cases, set the
centre channel delay to 0mS. The centre channel delay time
adjustment is only available in Dolby Digital surround mode.
DEUTSCH
NEDERLANDS
Measure the distance from the listening position to either the left or right
rear speaker (dLS or dRS). Subtract the rear speaker distance from the
front speaker distance (dFL or dFR). The resulting distance is equivalent to
the delay in milliseconds for the rear delay setting. For example, if your
rear speaker distance is 6 feet (1.8 m) and the front distance is 12 feet
(3.7 m), the correct rear channel delay setting is 6 milliseconds. Again, set
the rear channel delay to 0mS if the rear channels are further from the
listening position than the front speakers.
ESPAÑOL
In Dolby Digital surround mode, the rear channel delay time can be set
from 0ms to 15ms with 1ms increments. In Dolby Pro logic surround mode,
the rear channel delay time can be set from 15ms to 30ms and 1ms per
step. In DTS surround mode, the channel delay time cannot be adjusted.
ITALIANO
LEVEL SETTING (CHANNEL BALANCE)
The output levels of each of the speakers connected to the T742 may
need to be adjusted so that there is an even balance of sound from all
the speakers in the system. If, for instance, the relative volume level to
the Left and Right speakers and the centre speaker is set too low, most
of dialogue may be difficult to follow. If, on the other hand it is set too
loud, the over-all balance will sound unnatural.
PORTUGUÊS
To adjust the channel balance, the T742 is equipped with a TEST button
(No. 7) on the Remote Control to help assess the loudness levels of each
speaker. Before adjusting the channel balance level, make sure the
master volume is turned down to a normal listening level.
SVENSKA
Pressing the TEST button engages the Test signal generator to allow for
adjustment of all speaker levels, so that each channel can be adjusted for
equal loudness at your listening position. The test signal scrolls
automatically with 2 second intervals from Left, Centre, Right, Rear Right,
Rear Left, to sub-woofer in continuous cycles. If an adjustment in set-ting
is made for one of the speakers, scrolling will stop until 2 seconds after the
adjustment was made. The display panel shows which speaker is being fed
with the test signal. Use the VOLUME +/- buttons on the Remote Control
to respectively increase or decrease the level for the current speaker.
NOTE
There is no output in the Subwoofer during noise sequencer operation;
therefore it is difficult to adjust the level in test mode. The Subwoofer
level can be adjusted in the setup menu with musical input.
18
Select the channel for which you wish to adjust and set the level so that it
matches the other speakers. For best results it is best to start with the Left
channel set at 0dB and to match the other speakers to it. Normally, if the
Right speaker is located at the same distance from the listening position to
the Left speaker it should be set at the same level as the Left speaker.
NOTE
If no level adjustments were made, press TEST again to return to the
selected source. Any changes in the Channel Balance Setting, under
the test mode, will be memorized automatically.
The Delay time for the Surround speakers also needs to be correctly set
for your normal listening position. Refer to the section “Channel Delay”
in this chapter for more information.
