NAD 4020A


The NAD 4020A is a rationally engineered, moderately priced tuner, whose performance in most locations and with most broadcasts is audibly identical to that of many more expensive and elaborate tuners.

The 4020's quality of sound is limited only by the quality of the transmitted broadcast.

This is one of the most impressive analogue tuners I have come across. The sound quality is excellent with a big wide stereo soundstage and great bass extension. The tuner could do with an alignment after 40 years. There may also be some drift on first power on, but that's all the negatives.

I have the 4020, the FM only version. I bought it in 1980. It sounds as good as new.

Mine is 35 years old. Listen to it every day - still sounds great. Even survived a lightening strike that killed the digital stuff under it.
Threw the top away years ago so folks could see REAL transistors, variable capacitor, etc.
