3 weeks old, AS NEW Impeccable condition with all accessories most still in the plastic, suit new buyers.

 

You can see my posts in the owners thread about how I found the C658 in use. But basically this thing is extremely powerful, Dirac is a game changer for sure and it seamlessly integrated my subs with my fronts which was the main reason I purchased it, so that box was ticked.

 

For years I have listened to my music without any eq or bass or treble, I've been all about tweaking placement of speakers etc. to get the most out of my gear.

 

The eq capabilities on this thing are insane, you seriously feel like you have your own recording studio,  you can tweak the sound to within an inch of its life which for some would be heaven, but for me its made me a little obsessive compulsive! I know for a fact that if I invested more time in getting the sound right I would definitely get there but given where I've come from I'm making a gut call early and going back to the basics. What that is I'm not entirely sure at this stage but will see if this gets snapped up and go from there.

 

Anyone that's ever brought things from me knows I look after my gear probably better than my kids so be assured this unit is in impeccable condition, not a mark on it, and comes from a smoke free home.

 

WARRANTY - Balance of 2 year warranty (Owned for 3 weeks) will be transferred to new owner.

did you upgrade to the full dirac and if so - is that also easily transferable ?

Yes I did mate and unfortunately doesn't appear to be transferable, but I'm sure we may be able to work out a way for the new purchaser to trial it on my account??

Would need to look into it.

HiFi Whipped,

Check out my idea of room correction. In my mind you're a legend. GLWS.

@djmt each to their own mate, I reckon thats why they invented Dirac though! 

 

Wouldn't want to knock those speakers over getting a glass of water in the middle of the night!

Do you have to use this as a pre amp for dirac to come into play or can it be used with my pre amp?

Can be either. I used it as a DAC with fixed volume output into my AVR, others use it as a standalone DAC/Pre and use the Variable volume of the Nad to control a power amp.

 

Sorry, when I said "powerful" I meant feature packed!

Hi Hazzy ,

I am using mine as a Streamer only  into my ATC Pre with fixed Volume as Dean said above....

Worse case, buyer has to fork out USD100 but buyer is already ahead for a 1 week old unit.  GLWTS...

If it’s that easy the value just went up another AUD$150 and my asking price will remain the same!

Believe me I'd love to take this but aside from the SWMBO issue (which i could handle) there is now the stockmarket in free fall so Hi-Fi has to wait.

Stock market bouncing back and a price drop of $100 to $1880, you are way ahead compared to just 48hrs ago surely! 😁

karma is against me.  The dog is now recovering from a severe ear infection which required sedation.  Disposable income is now at a premium 😔.

I noted in the pics you have the fixed volume level set at 0db which is way above the -20db recommended setting. 0db will introduce some pretty nasty distortion levels. Just a thought.

Yeh I took the pic after I’d calibrated, adjusted the volume to suit before listening, so no distortion.

      Item Condition: Very Good - everything works perfectly Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: Queensland Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Not used Further information:
      I’m selling an NAD D3020 that I, impulsively, bought recently. It’s a great little all-in-one integrated amp with all the digital inputs you need. Due to it’s diminutive size, it would be perfect for a small, secondary system in the office, spare room or kitchen. For the budget minded, matched with the right speakers, it’s more than capable of playing the role of primary system.
      It includes the following:
      The unit itself Remote control Aussie power cord Quick-start guide All original packing materials including the velvet bag  
      NOTE: This is the original D3020, not the V2, so it doesn’t have a phone stage if that’s important to you. Otherwise, the original and V2 are more or less the same.
       
      Here are a few reviews and history of the iconic NAD 3020 evolution:

      Pickup in Bulimba, QLD (inner-city Brisbane) is welcomed but I’m happy to ship, with insurance, in Australia for $30.
