Another classic for my museum ;). The NAD 3020, praised for being a very nice sounding amplifier, in its price range, back in 1981. I bought it cheap on an auction, couldn't resist it. Though I haven't listened intensively, the sound of this amplifier is indeed very nice. Since I have only used the power amplifier, the following deals only with the sound of that. My impression is that this amplifier has an astounding ability, to make the music feel alive and to that extend has really good imaging. The bass is a tad exaggerated to my taste, but then again I have that feeling with a lot of HIFI components.

All in all this is a really nice amplifier, and due to the simplicity of the circuit very mod-able. I won't regret the money I spend for a nanosecond.
