    NAD 3020: Vintage hi-fi that still sounds great | The Audiophiliac - CNET News

    Unless I am mistaken, the NAD 3020 was rated as one of the best amps of all time. Though the power is a little low.

    NAD 3020 Integrated Amplifiers Reviews


    3020A Stereo Integrated Amplifier - NAD Electronics

    This is a very desirable amp, especially among collectors. But how much you can get for it is unclear. I guess quite a lot if you are willing to wait around for someone knowledgeable in the history and reputation of this amp.

    I've seen the in the USA selling for £200 (£130), which is probably more than they cost new in 1978.

    It is a very good amp, but what you can get for it depends on how fast you want to sell it. As I said, to the right person, £130 would not be unreasonable if in good shape. But, on a quick sale, likely in the £30 to £50 range.

    One drawback to someone who knows little about the amp history, is that it is only 20w/ch.

    I'm old enough to remember these amps when they first came out!

    I thought about buying one at the time , but ultimately went for a Nytech receiver a year or so later! , then a Mission Cyrus 1 , then an Arcam Alpha 3.

    Certainly a classic *very* high-powered 20 watts ... why not hold on to it?
