| NAD 7020E stereo tuner / amplifier|
The 7020e is based on the 3020i integrated amplifier. It is rated at 20 watts per channel of steady-state power with +3 dB of IHF dynamic headroom, meaning that in musical transients it produces up to 40 watts / channel of dynamic power at 8 or 4 ohms.
The 7020e shares with all NAD amplifiers and receivers a high-current output stage that, when playing music instead of test tones, delivers full power to speakers of any impedance. Its combination of dynamic power, Soft Clipping, and potent output current give the 7020e a characteristic ability to drive even difficult speakers to unexpectedly high volume levels.
In addition to its surprisingly powerful speaker-driving ability, the 7020e contains the same quiet and detailed vinyl phono circuitry, sensitive digital tuning, wide stereo separation, sharp audio-bandpass filtering, and musically useful tone controls that larger NAD receivers employ. In particular, the phono stage for vinyl is famously quiet and transparently detailed.
The 7020e is a no-compromise product, featuring typically high-value engineering and understated cosmetic design that stands behind every NAD product. There is some detail missing from the white selection names, but in general it is obvious to use - remember no remote - just quality sound.
