T 187 Surround Sound Preamp Processor
Designed for those who prefer performance with flexibility, the T 187 is the perfect separate surround processor accompaniment to any high
performance multi-channel power amplifier. You’ll find support for all the latest video and surround sound formats, including full 3D video, along
with all the control in this compact, streamlined chassis. Setting a new standard for quality and overall performance, the T 187 shows off NAD’s
expertise in digital decoding. The T 187 also includes our proprietary Modular Design Construction (MDC) for the added convenience and flexibility of
future upgrades.
> MDC—True Innovation
> More Music
End the frustration of having to replace your entire AV preamp
processor just to keep pace with the ever-changing world
of AV. Our most important recent innovation, MDC battles
technology obsolescence by allowing you to upgrade the T
187 with new connectivity and features as new technology
becomes available. Winner of the prestigious reddot Design
Radio gets a boost with the T 187’s high-performance, 30
station preset RDS FM/AM tuner. A popular option is our IPD
2 Dock, which shows your iPod song information on the On
Screen video display. Or for high quality digital radio, add our
DB 2 digital DAB+ module (230V only). The T 187 is also XM
ready (120V version).
Award, MDC should be at the top of your checklist.
> ‘Music First’ Audio
The T 187 offers decoding for all the latest surround formats
including Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD
Master Audio, plus our very own critically acclaimed EARS
(Enhanced Ambient Recovery System) digital surround
mode. EARS produces impressively natural surround sound
from two-channel recordings, without the artificial ‘boing’ that
plagues other DSP modes. We’ve also included a top-level
24-bit/192kHz Burr Brown DAC carefully selected for ultimate
audiophile performance.
> Pure Video
With support for the latest digital video technology including
full support for 3D video up to 1080p, the T 187 is equipped to
bring you outstanding video performance. We have carefully
kept the video processing where it belongs—in your display—
so the most pure signal is delivered without any processing
or degradation. Analogue sources are converted to digital for
simple one ‘one wire’ connection to HDMI equipped TVs, as
well as features such as Consumer Electronic Control (CEC)
and Audio Return Channel (ARC).
> Easy as 1, 2, 3, AV!
Our unique AV Presets allow custom setups for different
types of sources and program material (drama, action,
musical, etc.). For added convenience, you can rename
inputs to match your particular components. Speaker
set up is a snap using a supplied calibration microphone
and Audyssey MultEQ XT room correction with custom
NAD target response curves for the optimal level
of performance.
> Go Ahead and Connect It
A full suite of video switching, including seven HDMI inputs and
two outputs, supports all the popular video formats. Integrating
the T 187 into an advanced home automation system is made
simple with IP Control, IR remote outputs, 12V triggers, and
an RS-232 port. Other installer-friendly enhancements include
three additional zones, all with independent source and volume
and a simplified, second-zone remote. For NAD quality sound,
don’t be shy—spread it around.
