D 3020 Wins 2014 TAS Affordable Amp of the Year
December 16, 2014
NAD D 3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier has been awarded top honours as the "Affordable Integrated Amplifier of the Year" in the 2014 Product of the Year Awards by The Absolute Sound, the world’s leading magazine for high-performance audio and music. Considered The Absolute Sound's most high-profile accolade for hi-fi components, the Product of the Year is a juried award determined by a panel of TAS editors that carefully review the top stereo amplifiers to establish a winner in three categories; Affordable, Mid-Priced, and Upper-End.
TAS editors were especially impressed with NAD's well-engineered amplifier and its integration of ultramodern audio features in one highly efficient design, ensuring that music recordings are presented clearly with every subtle detail. "The 30Wpc D 3020 is also a 24-bit/96kHz USB FAC with aptX Bluetooth streaming and a headphone jack. But for all its new features its sound is pure NAD," said The Absolute Sound editorial team. "The D 3020 retains an essential sonic presence, a midrange integrity, that sculpts the body of a performance and makes it live in the listening spaced."
NAD D 3020 has also won Product of the Year awards from three other internationally recognized audio magazines: 2014 Stereophile Budget Component of the Year, 2014 Secrets of Home Theater and High-Fidelity Best Desktop Amplifier, and 2013 What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision Best Stereo Amplifier up to £500.
