NAD D 3020 V2 vs Onkyo A-9150

NAD D 3020 V2 review

The D 3020 V2 provides the convenience of wirelessly streaming all your music via Bluetooth. The D 3020 supports even the highest Bluetooth audio quality, aptX, which is becoming increasingly popular due to its excellent sound quality and low power consumption compared to Wi-Fi. The power of these two sides is equal - 30W (8 Ohms). The highly efficient design of the D 3020 consumes less power, requiring only 20% of the power needed by traditional Hi-Fi amplifiers. The D 3020 offers a variety of inputs for your digital and analog sources. There are also analog inputs, including the MM Phono input. This Phono module includes high-precision RIAA correction and Infrasonic Warp Filter. NAD D 3020 V2

Onkyo A-9150 review

It is impossible not to note the opportunity to rediscover the sound of analogue recordings by using the input of the MM phono stage. At the same time, users are offered separate equalizers, displayed on a separate circuit board, a customizable head amplifier, which works in a discrete configuration for MS signals. Great opportunities open up for users with large collections of CD recordings. For this, a unique technology was developed that allows you to clean the signal from high-frequency noise, DIDRC filters, a 32-bit 768kHz DAC are used. Onkyo A-9150
