NAD D 3020 Hybrid Digital Stereo Amplifier

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
12 December 2013
  • Summary: If it isn't already obvious, I was supremely impressed by the D 3020. Its ability to drive a pair of large four-ohm speakers as stoutly as a 75-pound Emotiva amplifier is nothing short of astounding. It may only be rated at 30 watts per channel but it might as well be 130 given the results I experienced. And to achieve that level of fortitude, while retaining full detail, at only $500 is even more amazing.

NAD D 3020 Hybrid Digital Integrated Amplifier

Sound & Vision Magazine
8 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Audio types old enough to have viewed Chevy Chase’s pratfalls live rather than on demand may remember an unprepossessing integrated amplifier from an unfamiliar brand. The NAD 3020, despite a power rating laughably modest even in 1978 (20 watts per channel) and next to no features, gained notice because, as the lore went, “it sounded great.

  • Excerpt: NAD has taken very much the same approach with its new D3020 integrated amplifier. The original NAD 3020, released back in 1978, was designed as a flag-bearer for a company that had recently re-badged itself (from the rather clumsy ‘New Acoustic Dimension’ to the tight and catchy ‘NAD’). The amplifier was deliberately both over-specified and under-priced (at least according to the hi-fi equipment reviewers of that era).

  • Excerpt: Forstærkeren NAD D3020 skal videreføre arven efter milepælen NAD 3020 fra 1978. D3020 er langt lettere og mere kompakt, men alligevel 20 watt kraftigere og tilpasset vores digitale tidsalder. Trådløs musik går via Bluetooth, og der er ingen netværkstilslutning. Vi bruger abonnementstjenesten WiMP Premium og ikke HiFi, da WiMPs AAC-codec sendes direkte over Bluetooth, mens WiMP HiFis Lossless-format først skal gennem en viderekonvertering.
  • Pros: Musikken præsenteres i et stort og opløst lydbillede, der til tider er en drøm at lytte til. Især stemmegengivelsen er fremragende med neutral klangbalance og et bredt stereoperspektiv.
  • Cons: Højttalerne skriger efter en endnu bedre forstærker. Det kan lyde lidt fladt og livløst, når man skruer op, og bassen har brug for mere kraft for at blive mere livlig. Bluetooth kan give udfald.
