      NAD  3240PE  [3rd unit]  stereo  amplifier  - charcoal grey :
   According to a long-established industry custom, the highest-quality parts and most highly refined designs are found only in separate audio components - in preamps, power amplifiers, and tuners
   Integrated amplifiers usually are made to a less exalted standard, while all-in-one stereo receivers are regarded as mid-fi products suitable only for first-time buyers
   But not at NAD. Whether you choose the flexibility of separates, the convenience of an integrated amplifier, or the economy of a receiver, all NAD audio components share a single design philosophy
   Often the very same highly-refined circuits are used in both separates and combination products. For example, the NAD 3240PE integrated amplifier contains the best-buy 2240PE power amplifier, combined with preamplifier and control circuits similar to those in the 1240PE preamp
   The 3240PE costs only a little more than other “medium-power” amplifiers, but its no-frills exterior conceals a powerhouse of advanced design
   Its high-current output stage delivers full output to loudspeakers of any impedance (even as low as 2 ohms), producing peak currents up to 25 amperes for precise dynamic control of speaker voice-coil motion
   The 3240PE is conservatively rated to deliver 40 watts of continuous power per channel into either 8 or 4 ohms, but its Power Envelope design yields extraordinary reserves of tone-burst power for music
   With +6 dB of dynamic headroom, the 3240PE delivers over 160 watts per channel at 8 ohms (200watts/ channel at 4 or 2 ohms) for the high-level transient peaks in today’s wide-range recordings
   And the 3240PE puts out 100 watts per channel of clean, clear power for the full 200-millisecond duration of the notes and chords of a grand piano, symphony orchestra, or large jazz band
   The preamplifier section of the 3240PE is based on the 1240PE’s outstandingly quiet, wide-range phono stage
   It features precise RIAA equalisation, very low noise, and ample headroom to accommodate the highest-level peaks without distortion. The dynamic range of the phono preamp circuit exceeds 100 dB
   Bass EQ provides solid, subwoofer-like reinforcement of the low bass, extending the useful response of most loudspeakers an extra half-octave lower
   It strengthens the fundamental tones of pipe organ, bass drum, and synthesizer with no boomy mid bass emphasis. The Bass EQ circuit rolls off sharply below 30Hz to avoid woofer damage and minimise unwanted cone-flapping caused by note-musical signals such as LP disc warps
   NAD’s unusually useful tone controls provide musically effective corrections at very low and high frequencies without altering the amplifier’s fundamentally neutral midrange sound
   Preamp Out and Main In jacks make it easy for you to upgrade your audio system by adding an equaliser, a surround-sound processor, an electronic crossover, or another power amplifier
   NAD amplifiers are praised around the world for their advanced engineering, modest pricing, uncomplicated controls, and state-of-the-art sonic performance
   For accuracy, freedom from noise and distortion, and supremely musical sound quality, the 3240PE is unmatched in value. It has power reserves to drive the finest loudspeakers with ease, and it will do justice to the finest recordings
