Interesting -
I had both in my house for a few days when I was evaluating the D7050 because I wanted direct digital amplification and a little more power.
Having observed the D3020 seemingly providing more power to my inefficient Harbeth p3esr monitors, I ask NAD which amp actually provided more power.
Here is what they had to say about it. Also remember that you will not see the “Dynamic Power” of the D7050 used as a marketing point by NAD anywhere. They simply state 50w into 4 ohms.

Hello Jjkern,

Thank you for contacting the NAD Electronics Support Centre regarding the NAD D7050/D3020. Please be advised that the D3020 is recommended as it has much higher dynamic power particularly into 4 and 2 ohms 105W and 150W respectively.

We hope this information is helpful.


Kind regards,

Question Streaming from PC to Oppo

Hello all and thanks in advance for your input.

I have a Windows 10 machine and am waiting to purchase (when available) the Oppo 4K player. I checked with Oppo and they state the forthcoming 4K player will NOT have an Internet browser.

As this (no browser) is the case with teh current 105/105D model, can someone tell me whether or not they were able to successfully:

- establish a wireless "share" between the Oppo and Win 10 where the Oppo sees the Win 10 shared files
- access a streaming music website - such as gdradio.net - on the PC and play that stream via the Oppo
- if connecting PC to Oppo via a wired connection while listening to a streaming website on the PC, how are you making the connection (USB out of PC to USB in of Oppo or HDMI out of PC and into HDMI of Oppo)

Musical Fidelity M6si, Emotiva ERC-3, Golden Ear Triton One, Samsung UN65KS9800

Now I don't know but I've been told, It's hard to run with the weight of gold, Other hand I heard it said, It's just as hard with the weight of lead

Take a look at the Chord MOJO Dac. I am using a Chord HUGO right now its very good!!! I have heard people and my own dealer say the MOJO is even smoother and warmer sounding. I may do a home demo of the MOJO with in the next few days. Its only 800$ here in Canada less then half the price of the HUGO.

If it really does, then it's either badly designed or defective.

If you know of the cases they didn't, lets see some results. I've been looking for such case.

I have looked this over. I will admit that this is interesting but i must say in my defense if i were to hear a difference in the HUGO over the MUSE DAC what then. I will have to go with the HUGO its just better on my ears. I ask others to just keep an open mind on the matter. If your ears like it buy it! PS the link was all in good fun my friend, I hope I wasn't wrong in thinking you would have found it of interest.
