repair practice nad 3020i stereo integrated amplifier do easier

The NAD 3020 series amplifiers are the stuff of legends. Here is quite simply one of the best sounding, best designed and best built budget priced range of integrated amplifiers ever made.

NAD 3020i is the improved version of well-known 3020, from the list of ‘Ten Most Significant Amplifiers of All Time

Masterpiece until next will be there are.

the schematics is almost the same with NAD 4335PE

3 inputs selection
1 tape input monitor

Speaker impedance switch should be in 8 ohm position while adjust center voltage and idling current.

 Adjustment No load connected
A. Center voltage
1. Connector DC millivoltmeter to L channel output terminal.
2. Turn on and adjust to 0 V +/-30mV with R411 (470 ohm). Connect DC millivoltmeter to R channel output terminal and adjust R412 to 0 V+/-30mV.

B. Idle current
1. Remove solder short across R455 and R456.
2. Connect DC millivoltmeter across R455 (1 ohm) (output transistor's collector resistor) and adjust R443 for 26-30mV reading on meter. Repeat adjustment with R444, connecting meter across R456 (1 ohm).

3. Leave power on for minimum 5 minutes.

Final Adjustment
C. Center voltage
1. Repeat step A about.
D. Idle current
1. Repeat step B and adjust with R443, R444 for 30mV reading on meter. 2. After the alignment is finished, 1 ohm resistor R455, R456 shorted by solder short
