You'll note in the negatives, I have put 'Will struggle to drive insensitive speakers.' The two pairs of speakers you list are vastly more expensive than the NAD and neither would be anywhere near any shortlist of designs I would choose to partner with it. The review was written based on tests with slightly more expensive partnering equipment that nonetheless demonstrates characteristics in keeping with equipment it is more likely to be partnered with.Hello, new to the avforums. I got the D3020 v2 3 weeks ago. Your review is quite accurate but I would substantiate a few more things. The D3020 v2 phono stage is less than stellar, actually sub par so it is very disappointing. The unit is also emitting an humming pulsing sound at 80% volume level. I did many test, even on its own, the hum is present when MM out is selected. No issue with the other outputs. Finally, the D3020 have a hard time to drive my speakers. I tried a set of Focal Tantal 507 (vintage) and my new Totem Accoustic rainmaker. One must run the D3020 at 80% plus capacity to get a little punch. On the good side, the sound is clean, other than the MM stage where it is muffed. Overall, I am disappointed and would not recommend this amplifier.
