Stereophile Recommends the M3 Amplifier

April 24, 2009

Stereophile Magazine adds the NAD Masters Series M3 Integrated Amplifier to its Class A recommends components list.


The superbly finished 180Wpc NAD M3 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier sports a chassis made of 2mm thick milled steel plates with smoothly rounded corners and heatsinks, a front panel of extruded aluminum and diecast zinc, and a finish made of a brownish powder coating and advanced automotive paint. Seven custom-nameable inputs (including one balanced XLR) are provided, and NAD's PowerDrive technology is used to maximize the dynamic power sent to the speakers. Though overall dynamics were sometimes muted, resolution of low-level detail was superb, MF: "The combination of its smooth sophisticated sonic balance, exceptionally silent background, overall musical coherence—and, especially, its freedom from obvious sonic glitches—produced consistently attractive and musical sound.: In his own auditioning, JA was struck by how smooth the M3 sounded: "as smooth as silk." Stereophile Class A Recommended Component.
