October 8, 2013 Next D 3020 Grabs Top Pick of the Year Award Share You can’t help but think about the hi-fi legend, NAD 3020 stereo amplifier, with the new NAD D 3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier. Quickly building esteem with excellent reviews, and winning over editors in listening tests, the NAD D 3020 is creating its own path in the new era of digital music. Editors like Daniel Kumin of Sound and Vision, the largest North American home entertainment and hi-fi magazine, heard it instantly when auditioning it for the Top Pick of the Year Awards. And let’s just say, based on what he said, it was a lock as one of the best. “…the Chesky-recorded ‘Tain’t So,’ another piano-solo FLAC (176/24; Dick Hyman) sounded even better, with superbly natural ping to hammer strikes and richly three-dimensional air around accented treble notes.” “In the flesh, the D 3020 has a look and feel you instantly want to own, with tactile rubberized surfaces and a distinctly Euro-rounded, honeyI-shrunk-the-projector shape I liked very much.” “…the D 3020’s obviously superb sonics with high-resolution material. Its elegant looks, especially when vertical (the NAD can lie either way) and impressively high-quality feel don’t hurt, either.” Read the full Sound and Vision review here.
