Hybrid Digital Amplifier: The NAD D 3020 V2 is a hybrid digital
which incorporates NAD's PowerDrive and Soft Clipping technology for dynamic
power, low distortion and noise, and minimal power consumption. Even at 30 watts
x 2 channel, the D 3020 V2 has the ability to drive "power hungry" and low-impedance loudspeakers to
satisfying levels without adding noise or distortion.
- NAD PowerDrive Circuit: The D 3020 V2 use NAD's
proprietary PowerDrive amplifier technology that provides high dynamic power
and low impedance drive capability. This uniquely efficient power supply
topology provides the real world benefits of high dynamic power that remains
uncompromised by low impedance speakers.
- NAD's Full Disclosure Power Ratings: NAD uses Full
Disclosure Power (FDP), the most demanding criterion for performance
measurement. FDP specifies distortion under the most extreme conditions of
low impedance loads and frequency extremes, rather than the simple and easy
1kHz @ 8 ohms test quoted by many of other manufactures. NAD uses this
stricter performance criterion because it more closely matches the demands
of real music and real loudspeakers. Maintaining specified distortion at 4
ohms and at 20Hz to 20kHz is a much more difficult achievement. The NAD D
3020 V2 is rated at 30 watts x 2 channel (@ 20-20kHz, in 8-ohms, with 0.1%
Note: The D 3020 V2's highly efficient design wastes less energy
resulting in cooler running and longer life; standby power consumption is
Bass EQ Circuit: An innovative Bass EQ circuit helps small
speakers sound bigger without overdriving or damaging drivers.
24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The NAD D 3020 V2 hybrid digital amplifier
incorporates an excellent quality 24-bit/192kHz DAC with 8 channels mixed to 2
channels for playback of your high-resolution digital music.
Digital Optical/Coaxial Inputs: The NAD D3020 V2 is fitted with one
digital coaxial (RCA) input and one optical (toslink) digital input for
connection of your digital audio sources like CD and DVD players,
satellite/cable boxes, or Apple TV. The unit will accept 2-channel PCM audio signals from the Optical or Coaxial inputs
(not compatible with Dolby Digital or DTS).
Dual Analog Inputs (including Phono MM): The D3020 V2 offers two analog
stereo RCA inputs, including one a line-level stereo RCA input and one Phono
(MM) stereo RCA input. The stereo RCA line-level input can be used to connect a
CD player or AM/FM tuner. The Phono (MM) input is used to connect a turntable
with a moving magnet cartridge. The Phono stage includes highly accurate RIAA equalization, an Infrasonic
Warp Filter, and features both high overload margins and extremely low noise.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming w/ aptX: The NAD D 3020 V2 offers built-in
Bluetooth aptX technology. Via Bluetooth, you can wirelessly stream music from your
smartphone (including iPhone & Android), tablet (including iPad & Android), or laptop
(including Windows & Mac) to the hybrid digital amplifier. The D 3020 V2 even
supports aptX audio coding which delivers CD-quality sound wirelessly over Bluetooth
for aptX compatible source devices (like Android and Macbook). Play/Pause and
Previous/Next Track functions can be controlled from the included IR remote.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The NAD D 3020 V2 hybrid digital
amplifier is equipped with four binding post terminals to connect your
loudspeakers (4 or 8 ohm). The binding post speaker terminals will accept bare wire (up to
10AWG), banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, and spade-connectors. Plastic caps inside the binding posts must be removed to use banana plugs.
Sub Out & Pre-Out: The NAD hybrid digital amplifier features
a mono minijack (3.5mm) subwoofer output for connecting an external powered subwoofer to your system. The sub output is equipped with a 100Hz low-pass crossover. Since most powered subs feature an RCA input, the D 3020 V2 comes with a minijack-to-RCA adapter. There is also stereo minijack (3.5mm) pre-out for
"daisy-chaining" an additional amplifier (a stereo minijack-to-RCA adapter will
be required - sold separately).
Headphone Amp: The D 3020 V2 features an integrated
headphone amp with a 3.5mm headphone output jack to connect a pair of headphones
for private listening. A specially designed low noise headphone circuitry
accommodates a wide range of headphones, even 600-ohm studio models. Once
headphones are connected to the D 3020 V2, your connected speakers will be turned
IR Remote w/ TV Connect: The NAD D 3020 V2 comes with an IR remote for wireless
operation of the hybrid digital amplifier. You can turn the amplifier on/off,
raise/lower volume, and switch sources from the remote. The playback controls on
the remote are for Bluetooth audio streaming only. The TV Connect features
enables the D 3020 V2 to learn the mute and volume control commands from
practically any TV remote control. Additionally, the D 3020 will automatically
power up to the Optical input source upon detection of a digital TV output
+12V Trigger Input: The +12V trigger input (3.5mm) lets you turn
on/off the D 3020 V2 from another device with a +12V trigger output.
Vertical or Horizontal Mounting: The NAD D 3020 V2 can be installed
vertically or horizontally. Four self-adhesive rubber feet are included.
- Vertical Dimensions: 2.3125" (w) x 7.375" (h) x 9.75" (d)
- Horizontal Dimensions: 7.375" (w) x 2.3125" (h) x 9.75" (d)
Auto Standby & Auto Sense: The D 3020 V2 can be setup to automatically
go to standby mode if there is no user interface interaction and no active
source input for approximately 30 minutes. The Auto Sense feature enables the D
3020 V2 to wake up from standby mode and starts operation by selecting the
Optical source input or the last digital source input before going to standby
