Question Upgrade Advice from NAD D3020


Novice Member
Hi guys,

I'm interested to hear opinions, I currently have a NAD D3020 with Dali sensor 3 speakers solely used to stream digital music mainly FLAC's via an Allo Digione I've generally been happy with this combination, But recently the amplifier packed up so I've been looking at various upgrade options. I'm aware the DAC in the NAD is not the best, but not sure how much you really need to pay for a much better DAC, also seems that a DAC in the amp limits future options, compared to an external DAC. Yet most higher-end amps seem to have a DAC built-in anyway.

So options are to get the amp repaired or upgrade the amplifier and speakers. As we appear to be stuck at home, I'm happy to invest a bit more money in the system.

I've heard lots of goods things online about the Klipsh RP600 and Kef KX50 speakers but not sure if these would be a worthwhile upgrade and if the NAD amp will be suited to either of those? or what a good combination might be.

Any thoughts on this would be welcome.
