NAD Masters Series M3

Remote Controlled Stereo integrated amplifier


In excellent condition. Includes factory remote. Owners Manual available on NAD website. Original Box and packing are not included.

Award winning favorite of all the hi fi magazines. This gently used pre-owned model is a bargin at this price! Original Retail was $2800.00

The M3's rugged chassis is built with 2-millimeter-thick steel plates and a front panel of aluminum and die-cast zinc. All of the heavy-duty gold-plated signal connectors are specifically engineered for the NAD Masters Series components. The guts of the M3 are as impressive as its armor. For precise adjustments, the volume, balance and tone controls use 1 percent resistors controlled by digital switches. Input selectors use the same sealed reed relays found in some of the world's most expensive hi-fi components. Because the signal never has to travel to the front panel for switching or adjustment, noise and distortion are minimized.

NAD's PowerDriveâ„¢ technology ensures that the M3 delivers maximum undistorted dynamic power into the connected speakers under all conditions. Like a turbo-charger, the PowerDrive signal processor senses the demands placed on the amp and delivers higher current only when it's needed. PowerDrive allows the M3 to sound even more potent than you would expect from its "Full Disclosure" rating of 180 watts x 2 channels.

You can assign your own names to the six pairs of RCA and one set of balanced XLR inputs. One of the two preamp outputs features a selectable biamp mode with built-in 40, 60, 80, and 100Hz low-pass filtering for a subwoofer. Wondering what you'll do with all those inputs? Think outside your main listening room. Connect a second amp to the M3's Zone 2 pre-outs, and you'll be able to take advantage of its independent Zone 2 source selection (and the handy Zone 2 remote control)
