The D3020 V2 surpasses amplifiers who cost 10 times as much with its large, warm, detailed sound. Nowadays the source is a computer or smartphone rather than a record player, but the ability to choose speakers that fit your taste perfectly is still a convincing argument for upgrading to one NAD-amplifier. The D 3020 starts with the original NAD 3020 concept and brings him into the 21st century directly using the latest high-speed digital technology. Now with V2 we have refined the looks and one Phono-input added for playing vinyl.
Reinventing an icon again
By adapting to contemporary media sources and using advanced digital technology for the new world of digital music, the D 3020 sets a completely modern twist to a respected icon. The original designer of the 3020, the director of advanced technology of NAD, Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, has played a crucial role in the development of the D 3020 for the new digital generation. With excellent quality 24/192 DAC Mixed with 8 channels to 2 for a better resolution, the D 3020 V2 represents the same type of valuation innovation that are the original 3020 legendary, overacing Phono-Phase gave.
The D 3020 offers inputs for your digital and analog sources. Thanks to coaxial and optical inputs, many different digital sources can be connected, 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 an advanced mm Phono-Entrance. Far from just a few sockets, this one Phono-Stage contains extremely accurate Riaa equalization, an infrasonic Warp filter and has both high overload margins and extremely low noise. With V2 we also added a preout for better connectivity in the final stage.
Power that delivers
The output power may sound small with 30W per channel, but just like all NAD-This is very misleading, because a well-designed 30W amplifier can sound superior to a 100W amplifier of a smaller brand. With its very small form factor, the D 3020 will surprise many because of his ability to bring difficult speakers to satisfactory levels without adding noise or distortion.
Real World performance
NAD Rewrited the rules for amplifiers when designing the original 3020. Instead of leting laboratory test equipment the last word, we ensured that we could control real speakers with real music for the real world. The D 3020 meets this promise through a unique implementation of NAD PowerDrive ™, developed by Edvardsen, which makes a low impedance drive (power) and a high dynamic power (voltage) possible with a stunning low distortion level. This refinement of PowerDrive in combination with a accurate, soft clipping circuit, makes the D 3020 sound even more powerful than it already is. An innovative bass EQ circuit helps small speakers to sound big without overflowed or damaged pattern woofers.
Power with bluetooth
The D 3020 V2 offers the convenience of wireless streaming with its Bluetooth ® power. Stream all your music from a smartphone, tablet or laptop. The D 3020 even supports the highest audio quality Bluetooth, APTX®, which is becoming increasingly popular due to the excellent sound quality and low power consumption compared to Wi-Fi.
Average and green
The extremely efficient design of the D 3020 waste less energy and requires only 20% of the power that traditional HiFi amplifiers need. It is as if you are exchanging a gasolining car for a hybrid vehicle. The power consumption in standby mode is miniscule
