Your NAD T741 should be placed on a firm, level surface. Avoid placing
the unit in direct sunlight or near sources of heat and damp.
Allow adequate ventilation. Do not place the unit on a soft surface like a
carpet. Do not place it in an enclosed position such a bookcase or cabinet
that may impede the air-flow through the ventilation slots.
Make sure the unit is switched off before making any connections.
The RCA sockets on your NAD T741 are color coded for convenience.
Red and white are Right and Left audio respectively, black for digital
input, yellow for Video Composite and NAD Link.
Use high quality leads and sockets for optimum performance and
reliability. Audio RCA leads will function correctly for video signals,
although it is recommended to use dedicated video leads where possible.
For the digital inputs use dedicated leads for digital signal transfer. Ensure
that leads and connectors are not damaged in any way and all
connectors are firmly pushed home.
For best performance, use quality speaker leads of 16 gauge (1.5mm)
thickness or more.
If the unit is not going to be used for some time, disconnect the plug
from the AC socket.
Should water get into your NAD T741, shut off the power to the unit and
remove the plug from the AC socket. Have the unit inspected by a
qualified service technician before attempting to use it again.
Do not remove the cover, there are no user-serviceable parts inside.
Use a dry soft cloth to clean the unit. If necessary, lightly dampen the
cloth with soapy water. Do not use solutions containing benzol or other
volatile agents.

1 Power Sources - Connect this unit only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and
as marked on the unit.
2 Polarization - As a safety feature, some units are equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can
only be inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug
into an outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call
