The way ahead for the modern-day amp. The nad d 3020 is a well developed tiny powerhouse. Its 30 watts per channel, presents a super bluetooth machine constructed in,and is effective beautifully with any system i’ve connected with. Now thirty watts per channel doest seem significantly,but its far more than enough electric power to run speakers up 100 watts for smaller to medium sized rooms. Is effective good,quick established up,and has extras to hold you busy. Best product or service,comes extremely proposed.

Superb open thorough soundscape incredibly all-natural when partnered with suitable. Fantastic open thorough soundscape extremely all-natural when partnered with ideal machines. I have observed that the amplifier is vibration delicate the seem transformed from a disappointing dull seem to a quite normal sweet and in-depth audio just by putting the amplifier on a correct hi-fi help shelf. I am presently making use of the amplifier with a marantz cd 6005 cd participant and epos m5 speakers with a van den hull the initial interconnect this does not make a really large bass audio but the mid band and treble additional than compensate for this and it will preserve the neighbours joyful. I listened to a recording of june tabor who i have viewed stay and it is the very first method i have listened to which could correctly reproduce her voice.

Exceptional seem from this amp,feature clever it is ideal up there what with bluetooth streaming and crafted in dac this is a amp for present day situations it appears to be. Making use of it with spendor a5 speakers and it seems excellent.

Seems great, is future evidence and looks awesome and neat on the television stand. I have not had any concerns with controls but this is my very first amp so don’t have just about anything to examine it to.

Excellent upgrade to my c320bee. Exceptional improve to my c320bee, i hardly ever believed i would use bluetooth tunes streaming but it is really so simple with this machine. Sits amongst my computer and television set and is connected to each. Seems great with some q acoustics 2020i.

NAD D 3020 Digital Amplfier / DAC : Unbelievable sound for the money. Bought this as an upgrade for my old nad 3020 which has been gathering dust since it was hidden away from sticky fingered toddlers 8 years ago. I thought i would look for a compact amp ready for the modern age. I went into a well know hi-fi store with an open mind having not really kept up with modern hi-fi. 10 minutes listening to this hardback sized bit of electronic wizardry opened my eyes . Heard it with some qacoustics concept 20s and i had to re-consider what was possible at this end of the market. Competition must be savage as i had no idea that £1300 could buy you (got the bluesound node too) such fabulous kit. Even plugging my fiio x5 into the amp produced a wondrously transparent sound. Bluetooth sounds pretty good too although plugging your kit in is noticeably better.

Over the years i have been fortunate enough to own several mid range quality hi-fi set-ups, ranging from arcam, cambridge audio, rotel etc with multiple speaker set-ups b&w, monitor audio, kef and likes. All of them were excellent but always seemed to lack something in the sound. Could never pin point what is was and always finding myself in the search of the ultimate set-up for reasonable price. I currently own b&w cm10 which were driven with arcam p38/a38, cambridge audio sm6, arcam cd17. Thought i would buy the nad d3020 for a bedroom set-up but decided to see how they run with the cm10’s. All i can say is wow, balanced and amazing sound. That sparkle that was missing from all of my previous set-ups is now there. For the price i cannot see anything coming close to this unit, so much so that i have powered down my separates and running the nad all the time. Streaming from tidal, the quality is excellent.

Perfect partner in crime for my macbook pro. . I am using this with a macbook pro to drive some dali zensor 3 speakers and after the first few weeks i am mightily impressed. I did no demoing and took the plunge based purely on reviews, although it was neck and neck with the marantz pm6005 for quite a while. I opted for the nad in the end because it was far more suited to my needs. I literally have no analogue inputs to connect to an amplifier as all i use is my macbook pro connected via usb and a smart tv connected via a digital optical cable. I had previously been using a pair of audioengine a5+ active speakers with the amplifier built it via an external dac and whilst it sounded fantastic it didn’t feel quite like the old school h-ifi i used to love as a teenager. The nad really does meet this in the middle and everything has a much better feel to it. Also buying this meant i could sell my old dac and negate any price difference between this and the marantz pm6005. In terms of the sound quality i don’t have much of a basis for comparison. I bought this at the same time i bought new speakers so everything is new but what i can say is the difference between this amp and the dali speakers is night and day between the sound i got from the audioengine a5+’s, and they are 5 star award winning speakers.

I needed to downsize my 2nd system so it would fit on a quite narrow bookshelf, as a fan of nad amplification i didn’t have to look far. Bought this tiny funky looking little thing and paired it up with some q acoustics concept 20’s. Fabulous spacious detailed sound with lots of flexibility input – wise. I use tidal as my source primarily bluetoothed from my samsung tab s and i would highly highly recommend one of these.

Best money i have ever spent. I have been struggling for years to adjust to online music based on my old school understanding of hi fi. I have tried amplifying the crappy signal coming out of various pcs and paying too much for sound cards achieving unsatisfactory results. It wasn’t until the penny finally dropped that you need an external dac and drivers to take over all the sound processing from the pc, and brought this that i have got back the sound quality i used to have years ago with cds and lps. I absolutely love this thing, music has not been off since i got it, i am likely to get another one for my other work station.

Outstanding sound and features for the price – buy it now. Update after about a year and a half:so, i’ve had this for about a year and a half now. A few points to update:- turning this on with the remote control doesn’t always work first time – not a deal-breaker by any means, i’ve now got used to just pressing “on” on the remote control twice. – connecting to the d 3020 over bluetooth is hit and miss, especially if the d 3020 is normally on a wired source, like i have. I have to unpair the source device, then re-pair – again, not a deal-breaker, just a minor inconvenience – and to be really fair to nad, this is a common enough issue with any bluetooth device, not just the d 3020. – sound quality: yes, i’m still really happy with this. Other reviewers have highlighted its flaws in comparison to their reference components costing many times more. At this price, the balance of features and sound quality is hard to beat. If you’re after better sound quality at this price, that can be done, though you’d have to sacrifice the features the d 3020 offers.

Excellent open detailed soundscape very natural when partnered with right. Excellent open detailed soundscape very natural when partnered with right equipment. I have noticed that the amplifier is vibration sensitive the sound changed from a disappointing dull sound to a very natural sweet and detailed sound simply by placing the amplifier on a proper hi-fi support shelf. I am currently using the amplifier with a marantz cd 6005 cd player and epos m5 speakers with a van den hull the first interconnect this does not produce a very big bass sound but the mid band and treble more than compensate for this and it will keep the neighbours happy. I listened to a recording of june tabor who i have seen live and it is the first system i have heard which could accurately reproduce her voice.

I have this connected to my tv, blu ray player and tablet so very convenient. I chose this partly as a result of the reviews and partly as i like being able to stand it upright. It’s a decent amp with regards to the sound. The touch section on the top is not the best as takes a few attempts to use it. Same for the remote control. It’s convenient to have one but again it takes many attempts to get it to work.

I wanted something a bit more flexible than my 35 year old jvc amp and stumbled across this amp. It meets all expectations for connectivity, price and sound quality. I have played from pc, cd and blue tooth in flac, and 320kps mp3 and i struggle to pick the difference. The bluetooth is particularly good. The unit has the latest aptx blue tooth, paired with a sony phone with aptx blue tooth the sound is a revelation. I would recommend installing drivers on your pc and updating the unit firmware, details can be found in the online manual, not on the quick start up sheet enclosed. Finally there have been comments about the remote only having black on black markings well mine has white on black so i assume nad have been listening. Buy this you wont be dissapointed, it is a fantastic bit of kit for the money.
