NAD D 3045 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier

$1,099.00

HIGHER FIDELITY

High Res is to audio, what High Definition is to video. It is more lifelike and natural, and an altogether more enjoyable listening experience. With features like Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) the D 3045 can faithfully and accurately reproduce the full spectrum of sound encapsulated on the Studio Master. Until now, music lovers have only been allowed to hear an edited version of the full fidelity because our delivery systems, be it tape, vinyl, or CD, did not have the capacity to hold all the information contained in the Studio Master recording. With High Res downloads and streaming we can now enjoy exactly the same experience the artist heard in the studio when the recording was first made.

 

PERFORMANCE AND PRICE

The NAD D 3045 includes advanced capabilities usually only found in far more expensive components. High Res USB DACs? They start at about 3X the price of the D 3045. High Current headphone amplifiers start at the price of the D 3045 and go up from there. Power Amps featuring 60wpc and with the low distortion and high current capability of the D 3045 are rare at this price. Yet all these products are wrapped into one compact, energy efficient, and convenient package engineered by one of audio’s most iconic brands. 45 years of audio excellence is on full display with this innovative and versatile component. Just add your favourite music source and a great set of speakers to enjoy many years of sonic bliss.
