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,
