Once upon a time, audio snobs like myself dubbed the NAD 3020, an amp made of the flimsiest cheapest components a great amp under $140. Anyone that spent time in a electrical engineering class recognized it's simple Williamson 20/20 SS design. Thing of it is, most 20-30 watt receivers of the day like the Harmon Kardon 330B/C were and are substantially better than the NAD 3020 albeit in 1978 they were more expensive too. Which brings me to this point. This Pioneer has faster, quieter semi-conductors, it's construction unlike the NAD is neat and tidy.
And frankly the A-35R sounds better. Light crisp airy highs. Bass notes are tight and distinct. A sound stage reminiscent of the best integrated's like the Audiolab 8000a. A very very sweet phono stage forgiving of oddball capacitance loads found on most entry level (read Japanese) turntables. The Pioneer sounds like better separates! What's more it was $200 new. Used, they are a steal besting even the entry level Cambridge amps. In the end you can buy a plastic NAD wired like a rats nest with it's old dated sound and 1970 TO-3 outputs or you can buy the best amp under 40 watts for far less. I've forgotten more about Audio than most of these goofs on the internet know. Run, don't walk and buy a Pioneer A35R.
