Excellent receiver with much more power than the 40 watt/channel rating suggests. Sounds is excellent, tuner sounds and works great, two sets of speakers can be hooked up, and it has a phono input.
this is from the NAD website describing the receiver...
The 7240PE receiver consists of the 3240PE integrated amplifier, with its vast reserves of clean, solid power for the the wide dynamic range of modern recordings, plus an exceptionally sensitive digital tuner.
Power Envelope design
While the 7240PE is rated at 40 watts/channel of steady-state power, its +6 dB of IHF dynamic headroom means that its dynamic power for musical transients exceeds 160 watts/channel at 8 ohms and 200 watts/channel at 4 or 2 ohms. Even with long 200-millisecond tone-bursts, representing the full duration of musical notes and chords, the 7240PE produces an impressive 100 watts per channel.
High-current output stage
The 7240PE de-livers up to 25 amperes per channel to ensure precise electromagnetic control of the speaker’s voice-coil, even with impedances as low as 2 ohms.
This rear-panel switch lets you optimise the amplifier’? operation to drive either low impedances (2 to 6 ohms) or a single set of speakers with a true 8-ohm (or higher) impedance.
When the amplifier is driven beyond its rated power, NAD’s famous Soft Clip-ping™ M circuit gently limits the waveform and prevents the harshness that occurs in other receivers when the output transistors arc driven into saturation.
Low-noise phono preamplifier
NAD’s phono pre-amp circuits feature accurate RIAA equalisation, correct interfacing with the complex impedance of the phono cartridge, very low noise and plenty of headroom to accommodate the highest-level peaks without distortion.
With overload-proof line inputs and low-noise circuits for volume and tone control, the 724OPE
accommodates a dynamic range greater than 100 dB, preserving the transparent clarity of the finest analogue and digital recordings.
Bass EQ with infrasonic filtering
The equalisation circuit boosts the deepest bass by 6 d B providing the sort of authentic bass “feel” that might otherwise require a costly separate subwoofer system. At the same time, a sharp infrasonic filter prevents excessive woofer-cone motion and minimises the bass-muddying effect of turntable rumble, warps and tone arm/stylus resonances.
Musically Effective Tone Controls
Ordinary bass and treble control circuits intrude on the midrange; boosting the bass, for instance, makes vocals thick and boomy. In NAD receivers, the bass and treble controls do what their names imply: they vary the strength of the bass (the solid foundation, the musical beat) and the treble (the crisp detail the airy brilliance) while preserving a neutral, accurate midrange response.
Precise digital tuning
The tuner section of the 7240PE features sensitive dual-gate MOSFET front-end, a three-stage linearphase I.F. circuit for sharp selectivity, a low-distortion quadrature detector, and a phase-compensated PLL multiplex decoder with wide stereo separation at all frequencies. Special filtering minimises interference from SCA and RDS sub-carriers.
NAD’s unique FM noise-reduction circuit eliminates much of the noise and distortion in weak FM stereo signals, a welcome improvement for any listener who can’t put up a roof antenna. With FM-NR, the 7240PE needs only half as much signal strength as other receivers to obtain good quieting. The thoughtful engineering of this NAD receiver is evident in the design of its logical, easy-to-use controls - and in the deliberate avoidance of glitter, gimmicks, and frills. When you choose an NAD receiver, you arc investing in quality behind the front panel - in advanced circuit design, selected parts, oversize highcurrent transistors, exacting quality control, and solid construction for long-term reliability. The proof is in the listening.
