NAD 3020A

Integrated Amp - Boxed

With discreet circuity (no nasty chips or IC’s), the early 80’s NAD 3020 was a legendary giant-killer. Here is quite simply one of the best sounding, best designed and best built budget priced integrated amplifiers ever made. This is the later 3020A, which differs from the original 3020 only because it has the addition of a switchable MM/MC phono pre-amp.

20 watts RMS per channel of pure audio joy and packed with many useful features, including high quality built-in phono pre-amp (switchable MM or MC), along with ‘pre-amp out / main amp in’ links and NAD’s very useful ‘Soft Clipping’ control, this beautiful amplifier is in full & perfect, crackle-free working order and excellent physical condition (see close-up pictures).

One of Audio Review’s 10 most significant amplifiers of all time:  “This unassuming little integrated amplifier brought true high-end sound to a mass-market price, and in the process, exposed a whole generation of music lovers to high-end audio. The 3020 was simply the “go-to” amplifier for an entry-level high-end system. There are many more audiophiles today because of the 3020.”

The people who own these don’t tend part with them. Listen and you’ll appreciate why.
