Re: NAD 7020e receiver

My sister cleared out a doctors office to lease out again and pulled this NAD 7020 receiver from a cabinet. Knowing I am audio nut, she dropped it off at my house and it sat for about 6 months, I went to move it and the weight of it caught my attention so setting it back down I went right to google to research this brand.
I was impressed with NAD's goal and it's design to address loud speaker loads. I hooked it up to some capable speakers, 1st my JBL 4311 control monitors, and played Sheffield Lab, listened and enjoyed every bit of 3 songs of James Newton Howard than hooked up my JBL 4320 S.M. and put on Big Notes from Flim and the BB's, This little unit drove my 4320's and 4311 Monitors with no problem pushing it at 40 percent for a song and than pushed up to 60 % this amp is 40watts I find this NAD 7020e had me enjoy the James N. Howard and Big Notes at a nice SPL level, the bottom end was full on fat city and mids and hi's were balanced well and crisp. When I saw the suggested retail, I understand why it has been a top contender and best seller for years.
I am very impressed with this, I am just sorry it sat for 6 months, Thanks Sister!!!
What a Treat

Re: NAD 7020e receiver

Hey, never underestimate the "little" guy! My wood shop music system consists of a vintage (circa 1979?) 22 Watt JVC A-S3 amp and a Kenwood KT-880 tuner (whose 100 Watt fiance, KA-880SD, was buried in the dark recesses of a closet years ago after he "passed away" - shades of "A Rose For Emily" in reverse LOL). The JVC may be "little", but it's still feisty enough to drive a set of 4 ohm Onkyo D-TK10 knockoffs I built.
