Everything a Compact, Modern Amplifier Should Be (and How It Should Sound) for a Modest Price: NAD D 3045 Hybrid Digital Amp Features High-Res USB DAC, Phono Preamplifier, aptX HD, and More

Get the audio quality you want – and what you need – for a spectacularly modest cost with the 60Wpc NAD D 3045 hybrid digital amplifier. Packed with today's requisite features, including high-resolution DSD and MQA support plus inputs for vinyl and CD playback, D 3045 arrives with an asynchronous USB DAC for seamless computer-audio operation and interfacing with programs such as Roon and JRiver. A built-in precision clock drastically reduces jitter for higher-fidelity sound. You also have the convenience of streaming in aptX HD Bluetooth – even to your Bluetooth headphones. And worry not. D 3045 has an onboard, low-impedance headphone amplifier to take care of any ‘phones you may have and deliver your music with tremendous clarity and punch.

On the traditional spectrum, D 3045 boasts analog and digital inputs for CD spinning, connectivity for your TV, an HDMI ARC input for control via your TV remote, and a moving-magnet phono preamplifier for LP playback. Have a subwoofer? It's covered, too. NAD also tosses in a remote control. All together, D 3045 gives you energy efficiency, powerful amplification, silent operation, cutting-edge technology, and stellar flexibility in a compact unit that fits anywhere. You could spend much, much more gathering a separate amplifier, headphone amplifier, USB DAC, and phono preamplifier. The choice is yours. But at this price point and feature set, you won't do any better. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"NAD takes a no-nonsense approach to sound quality with cutting-edge technology and delivers high-end audio at a mid-fi price point.... Its character is definitive NAD—neutral and accurate with seemingly endless power reserves.... Some enthusiasts may have a hard time wrapping their minds around the idea of a tiny amp with such lofty capabilities. But it's very real. It doesn't have to be a large and heavy box to sound good.... It doesn't just think outside the box, it throws the box in the recycling bin. This amazing component receives my highest recommendation."
—Chris Eberle, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, Thumbs Up Award

"It's a fabulous little amp. Its modest dimensions make it an easy proposition for main and secondary systems alike, and set upright on a big enough expanse of wood or fiberboard, it could even work as the hub of a desktop system.... Its wired and wireless digital inputs provide true hi-fi sound at an affordable price, while its subwoofer outputs, ARC HDMI port, MM phono input, and—the icing on the cake—support of MQA provide the kind of flexibility that should satisfy any audiophile. The D 3045 is the cream of the crop of integrated amp-DACs [in its price class].... What a steal."
—Hans Wetzel, SoundStage! Access, SoundStage! Network Reviewers' Choice Component

"For those who are space-challenged, the NAD D 3045 is a relatively affordable and flexible option that packs a lot of functionality in a small space. It supports all the hi-res file formats, has two-way hi-res Bluetooth capability, plus a wide variety of analog and digital inputs. It will make vinyl and digital folks happy. It also has the gusto to drive power-hungry headphones and speakers. Not to mention it sounds good. If you are looking for a modern, space-saving, hi-fi system hub, the D 3045 is definitely worth an audition."
Hi-Fi Trends

“NAD’s D 3045 sounds more articulate, nuanced, and impactful than it has any right to for its price. Its sound is honestly reminiscent of the qualities we normally associate with far more costly high-end components. Even if you already own a higher-priced reference audio system, you may find the NAD’s combination of sonic performance, versatility, and an accessible price will win it a place in your home.”
