NAD M3 Integrated Stereo Amplifier


The M3 is not only an excellent integrated amplifier, it is an unusual one as well. The distortion measurements did not change much between 8 ohm and 4 ohm loads, which means the output tended not to move into areas that the power supply could not...

NAD M3 Integrated Amplifier


The NAD 3020 was something of an icon. The starter amp of the late 70s and early 80s, it established a whole new category of product, budget audiophilia. A modest 20-watter, blessed with an uncommonly decent pre-amp section (which could feed an...

So, having established the amp's undoubted hi-fi credentials, what's it doing with the music? Well, it was so obvious that the NAD would benefit from a better source than the ones I had to hand that, risking a lifetime of lower back pain on your...

The Absolute Sound named NAD's Masters Series M3 a "best of show" at the CES 2006 because the amp perpetuates NAD family values - that is, complete musical engagement, with the bonuses of far greater power reserves, a lower noise floor, and superior...

People who neither know nor care about hi-fi know about NAD, although they may still not care. A manufacturer renown for delivering the real thing for rather less than the likes of Naim or Meridian, or just about anyone else not from Japan, NAD might...

Then, a few years back, NAD got ideas above its station, and introduced the Silverline series of components. They were reviewed politely in the UK press, but there seemed always to be a unstated concern that NAD might have been over-reaching. The faint...

NAD M3 Integrated Amplifiers


I returned the first M3 I had, because of a faulty display. At that point I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay with NAD, because of all the negative comments about reliability the brand gets so I decided to go for another brand.

NAD M3 Integrated Amplifiers


I purchased this integrated after reading many reviews. I use the PSB Gold'i as my loudspeaker. What I liked about the M3, is I began to play some of my older recordings and they sounded pleasing to my ears. So I found myself becoming reacquainted with...

This integrated AMP has shaken my beliefs about the impact and preamp and/or amp can make in the performance of a stereo system. I do not change my equipment frequently and am rarely prone to highenditis. I was content with the sound of prior amp and...
