NAD D3020 V2 - Stereo Integrated Amplifier
Back in the 1970s, NAD introduced the original 3020 — a simple integrated amplifier that outperformed bigger, more expensive amplifiers with its smooth tone and big, detailed sound — something of a game-changer for music lovers of the day. In 2013, NAD introduced the D 3020, which proved as popular as the original among audiophiles of the digital age. The D 3020 V2 is the latest NAD integrated amplifier to build on the original 3020 concept.
With the D 3020 V2, NAD has refined the looks of the original D 3020, and added a phono input for vinyl playback. Just like its predecessor, the V2 is outfitted with a high-quality digital-to-analog converter capable of high-resolution playback. So this amp is ready for CD and Blu-ray players, network streaming devices, and more.
If you think 30 watts doesn't sound like much power, don't be fooled. Not all watts are created equal, and NAD has a long history of designing integrated amps that sound far bigger than their specs might lead you to believe. Highly efficient, this little amp is perfect for powering a pair of bookshelf speakers while delivering warm, detailed sound from digital and analog sources.

This isn't your everyday rack-style component. The compact and streamlined D 3020 V2 can stand on its side for placement on a desktop or shelf. Or lay it down flat in your cabinet or rack. You won't find a lot of unnecessary buttons cluttering this amp's front panel. Just an extra-large volume knob and a button for toggling between sources.
The display shows which source is selected, as well as the volume level. What more do you need? Maybe Bluetooth? You got it. Stream tunes wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet, or computer for convenient playback.
