NAD D3020 V2, reinventing an icon

The original NAD 3020 introduced a generation of music lovers to true hi-fi sound. In the 1970s, more than a million people rediscovered their music when they placed a NAD 3020 between their turntable and speakers.

This little gem outshone amps costing 10 times as much with its big, warm, detailed sound. These days, the source is more likely to be a computer or smartphone than a turntable, but the ability to choose speakers that perfectly suit one's taste remains a compelling argument for upgrading to an NAD amplifier.

The D 3020 starts with the original NAD 3020 concept and brings it directly into the 21st century using the latest high-speed digital technology. Now with V2, we've refined the look and added a Phono input for vinyl playback.

More connected

The D 3020 offers inputs for your digital and analog sources. Coaxial and optical inputs allow you to connect many different digital sources, from CD and DVD players, to set-top boxes, media streamers such as AppleTV or satellite and cable receivers.

There are also analogue inputs including a sophisticated MM Phono input. Far from just another set of sockets, this Phono stage includes high-precision RIAA equalization, an infrasonic warping filter and features high overdrive margins and extremely low noise. With V2 we have also added a PreOut for greater connectivity in the output stage.

Full power

The power output may sound small at 30W per channel, but like all NAD amplifiers, this is very misleading, as a properly designed 30W amplifier can sound superior to a 100W amplifier from a lesser brand.

With its very small form factor, the D 3020 will surprise many with its ability to drive difficult speakers to satisfactory levels without adding noise or distortion.

Maximum performance

NAD rewrote the rules for amplifiers when designing the original 3020. Instead of letting lab test equipment have the final say, we made sure we could properly drive real speakers with real music for the real world.

The D 3020 delivers on this promise through a unique NAD PowerDrive™ implementation developed by Edvardsen, which enables low impedance (current) and high dynamic power (voltage) drive at extremely low distortion levels. This refinement of PowerDrive combined with A precision smooth clipping circuit allows the D 3020 to sound even more powerful than it already is.

An innovative bass equalization circuit helps small speakers sound big without overloading or damaging ported woofers.

Transmits with bluetooth

The convenience of wireless transmission is put at the service of this amplifier/DAC. In addition, it is compatible with bluetooth aptX, increasingly popular thanks to its excellent sound quality and low power consumption.

An ECO amplifier

The D 3020's highly efficient design wastes less energy, requiring only 20% of the power required by traditional hi-fi amplifiers.

Standby power consumption is minuscule <0.5W. NAD has taken amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, lower noise and lower power consumption. NAD's primary focus is to find new technology that improves musical performance while consuming less energy and using fewer non-renewable resources in manufacturing.

Amplificador de escritorioAunque el amplificador es solo de 30 Watios es maás que suficiente para mover mis Polk Se15 que utilizo como equipo de escritorio. Ya tenía un Nad anterior y el sonido sigue gustándome mucho. Las conexiones funciona muy bien y el BT se conecta fácilmente y tiene calidad. la función Bass no distorsiona en ningún momento y resulta agradable para un bajo volumen. El producto está muy bien acabado y es lo que buscaba para poco espacio. El servicio correcto como siempre.
