In celebration of our 45th anniversary, we set out to collect stories from our fans about the first time they discovered the sound of NAD. After reading stories from hundreds of people, we decided to visit some of their homes and capture their stories on film. The narratives that follow—from different people around the world—all demonstrate NAD’s lasting impact on music lovers and audiophiles alike. An ongoing series, My First NAD gives an intimate look into the lives of NAD’s truest fans, uncovering why our products continue to be a rite of passage to the world of hi-fi.
Transcript for the following video
We’re looking to collect stories about how our customers got their hands on their first NAD product.
Did someone give it to you? Did you save your pennies for it? We want to know all about it!
LET US KNOW
Jeff Locke grew up in Shelburne, Ontario, Canada. Locke credits his parents for sparking his passion for hi-fi and vinyl at a young age. After moving to Toronto as an adult in 1991, Locke acquired a hi-fi system of his own, which was unfortunately eventually stolen. After a few years of what he refers to as “dumpster diving” for stereo components so he could continue listening to music, Locke eventually bought his first NAD component, the NAD C 356BEE.
Stefan Gershater grew up in rural West Sussex, England. A lifelong lover of jazz and blues, Stefan purchased his first NAD component, the NAD C 340, at the recommendation of What Hi-Fi? Having owned the C 340 for more than a decade, Stefan eventually upgraded to the NAD C 375 which he still owns today.
David Palmer grew up in Burlington, Ontario. A fan of the Strawbs and Miles Davis, Palmer was first introduced to the world of audio by his childhood best friend. Palmer became acquainted with NAD after seeing an ad from Bay Bloor Radio for the NAD 2600 and NAD 1300, respectively. Palmer eventually bought both units from Fairview HiFi, and later went on to add the NAD 502 to his system as well.
Nathan Palmer was born in Burlington, Ontario. A hardworking young man who leverages a lifestyle that balances the worldly with the spiritual, Palmer is a self-taught guitar player. A keen follower of music, Palmer was introduced to NAD by his father at a young age.
Chris Vlachos grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was while attending the University of Michigan that Vlachos discovered NAD. A friend and fraternity brother had the NAD 3140 and NAD 2140, and after hearing the components Vlachos was hooked. After finishing school, Vlachos upgraded his system with the NAD 1600 and NAD 2100 which he still uses today. Vlachos is also the owner of the NAD M12 and NAD M22.
