The NAD D 3045 is everything a modern amplifier should be; compact, energy efficient, 
powerful, silent, high-resolution enabled, and packed with cutting edge features like DSD 
and MQA playback. NAD’s expertise in both digital and analogue engineering is on full 
display in this flexible and affordable amplifier.

Higher Fidelity
Hi-Res is to audio, what HD is to video. It is more lifelike, natural, and a much more 
enjoyable listening experience. With features like support for MQA music, the D 3045 can 
faithfully and accurately reproduce the full spectrum of sound encapsulated on the studio 
master. Until now, music loving consumers have only been able to hear an edited version 
of the full fidelity because the delivery systems, be it tape, vinyl, or CD, did not have the 
capacity to hold all the information contained in the studio-master recording. With hi-res 
downloads and streaming we can now enjoy exactly the same experience the artist heard 
in the studio when the recording was first made. This is revolutionary! Yet, 90% of the 
products on the market today do not have the full capability required to experience this 
new higher fidelity

Features You Won’t Find Anywhere Else
Love vinyl? The D 3045 features NAD’s super accurate, wide 
dynamic range, moving magnet phono preamp to extract every 
last morsel of sound from your LPs. If you still enjoy CDs, we have 
both analogue and digital inputs. The digital inputs allow the use 
of the advanced hi-res DAC built into the D 3045, or you can even 
send the sound from your TV to the NAD amplifier and seamlessly 
control the system using your TV’s remote by taking advantage 
of the HDMI ARC input. You can even add a subwoofer to the 
system with the convenient Sub Out jack.
