November 10, 2014 Next AV Excellence Awards for NAD Digital Amplifiers Share Last week in South Africa, Audio Video Magazine unveiled the winners of their annual “AV Excellence Awards”, and the NAD D 7050 Direct Digital Network Amplifier & D 3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier were awarded “Overall Innovative Product of the Year” and “Recommended Integrated Amplifier”.NAD Electronics is tremendously proud to announce this great achievement and were very pleased with the critical acclaim that these two all-digital music streaming amplifiers have received since introduced in the new forward-thinking NAD Digital Series, including a “Best Amplifier Award” from What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision in October 2013.“The D 3020 undoubtedly plays louder and cleaner, especially in low impedance speakers. It has a very marginally tighter bass, smoother midrange and better definition and accuracy in the high-frequency region. That is what I expect you to hear,” said Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, NAD Director of Advanced Product Development. “The D 3020 has been designed to fit today’s needs in terms of digital sources and has a good quality DAC with 8 channels mixed to 2, giving improved resolution which represents the same kind of value-bending innovation that gave the original 3020 its legendary phono stage.”Download the November digital edition of Audio Video Magazine and read the latest reviews here.
