NAD Electronics D3020 V2 Firmware Download. NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier! The second generation - It was a true best-selling digital amplifier, the NAD 3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier. Now it presents its successor, the new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier and thus the second generation of this very versatile desktop audio solution from the NAD Digital Series. The NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier is the second generation of Desktop Audio Amplifier from NAD Electronics International. Of course, the new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid DAC Digital Amplifier remained true to the basic concept of its predecessor, more than that, it was limited to detail improvements over the previous generation. However, these are all relevant details, so that the Canadian hi-fi company can speak of the best of both worlds in a compact form, referring to the analog and digital interfaces of the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier.
In 2013, the Canadian hi-fi company NAD Electronics International surprised with very unusual solutions, with which they wanted to break completely new ground, namely the so-called NAD Digital Series. These NAD Digital Series are small in size, but are also very responsive, providing the most up-to-date amplifiers in the most compact form, which could reasonably be called desktop audio systems. This NAD Digital Series featured three models, the NAD D 1050 USB DAC , the NAD D 7050 Direct Digital Network Amplifier and the NAD D 3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier, The latter proved to be a particularly successful solution, so that Canadians even speak of a "best-selling" Digital Amplifier.

It is therefore not surprising that this is now being presented in a new generation, in the form of the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier, first presented at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Of course, the new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier remained true to the basic concept, and even more, it was limited to detail improvements compared to the previous generation. However, these are all relevant details, so that the Canadian hi-fi company can speak of the best of both worlds in a compact form, referring to the analog and digital interfaces of the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier.
The new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier, for example, is a very compact solution with a form factor quite exceptional for the amplifier, no longer measuring 58 mm in width, 186 mm in height, and 219 mm in depth. The NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier is therefore designed so that it is operated upright and thus takes up hardly any footprint. He also brings no more than 1.4 kg on the scales.
The upper end of the rounded front has a rotary encoder and a number of LEDs, as well as a 3.5 mm stereo mini jack, which is used for the connection of headphones. Also a display may not be missing.
The rear side is much closer, as it has an optical as well as a coaxial S / PDIF interface for connecting source devices such as a TV set or a streaming client. New is that the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier now has a phono preamplifier, which is designed solely for drives equipped with MM pickup system.
Of course, an analog input for other sources may not be missing, this is designed as Cinchbuchsen couple. In addition, you will find a pre out designed as a 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack, a subwoofer out, with its level is also controlled by a small encoder on the back. Also on a 12 V trigger connection you have not waived. The NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier provides screw terminals for connecting loudspeaker systems, which are quite solid, measured by their compact dimensions. The power supply is via an integrated power supply.
So far, the new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier is limited to just a few ports, but in the end, this amp lacks in mind if you understand the needs of the target audience for whom it was designed.
Especially since the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier of course also has an integrated Bluetooth module from Qualcomm, which also supports the codec aptX, allowing lossless music streaming in "CD quality", for example, from smartphones and tablets.
After being a so-called desktop amplifier, you have to be content with a performance of twice 40 watts here. However, the Canadian hi-fi company emphasizes that the NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier has been designed so that it can easily operate compact speaker systems of any kind and achieve adequate levels. In any case, it was the stated goal to use this solution to realize an audio system that is used in smaller rooms and here with fine sound, in the tradition of the legendary NAD 3020 Stereo Integrated Amplifier from the 1970s convinced.
Power output may sound small at 40W per channel, but like all NAD amplifiers this is very misleading, as a properly designed 40W amplifier can sound superior to a 100W amplifier from a lesser brand. With its very small form factor, the D 3020 wants astound many for its ability to drive difficult loudspeakers to satisfying levels without adding noise or distortion."
When the new NAD D 3020 V2 Hybrid DAC Digital Amplifier will also be available in this country, is currently not fixed. In the US, this will be available soon, with the manufacturer for this a price of US $ 399, - indicates to give an idea of the price range.
