NAD 3020 Integrated Amplifier Review

This episode sees the guys discussing what's probably the greatest affordable audiophile amplifier ever – the original and best NAD 3020!

Combining superb sound for the money with handy features and great load driving ability, this budget bruiser set the late nineteen seventies and early eighties hi-fi world on fire...

It sold in vast numbers, proving that the customer is always right. Mike and David recall their own experiences, and decide that it was their 'gateway drug' to serious, high end hi-fi.

Each episode of Hi-Fi Riff features their unedited, unexpurgated views about all manner of weird and wonderful hi-fi designs. Mike has a wealth of knowledge from his hi-fi retail years, and David has written about hi-fi for thirty years. Now Editor-in-Chief of StereoNET, he's picked up a few things along the way.

So brew up a cuppa or crack open a can, and relax and enjoy some one-take hi-fi riffing – and please leave your comments below. Oh, and don’t forget to hit the Subscribe button, this one goes up to eleven!

The eighties-tastic title tune is called ‘UFO/Mike’s Jumper’, and used with the express permission of our old pal and rights holder Simon Lythe.
