NAD has a well-deserved reputation for producing amplifiers with extraordinary performance and always at an affordable price.The T 973 keeps this tradition alive and well by applying 30 years of experience to the challenge of producing a high power, high performance, seven channel power amp able to provide the muscle required for even the most sophisticated Home Theatres.
As might be expected in an amplifier capable of one kilowatt (1,000 watts) of continuous power output, the power supply needs to be very carefully designed. As usual, NAD favors the toroidal transformer type for its superior regulation and low stray magnetic field. NAD Exclusive “Holmgren” transformer uses a special core design and materials to enhance efficiency and make the transformer less sensitive to DC offsets on the AC mains voltage. Over 80,000 uF of storage capacitance ensure an ample reserve of power for even the most demanding music and film soundtracks.

This unit has had very little use. In fact, it’s been in storage for the past 4+ years. There are a couple of blemishes on front panel (see pictures). Otherwise, the unit is in great shape.
