    Hi, i could use a Y connector and plug it to the NAD 3020 but this is not what i Want. The NAD is connected as pre-amp to a pyle PTA 1000. Tha Pyle dont have a headphone jack. The connection bet ween the NAD and Pyle is: RCA from NAD then RCA in quarter in inch jacks to Pyle. Do you need more details^

SOURCE: connect subwoofer etc to nad 3020I stereo amplifier

Hi Info
You can use a 2 x male RCA to RCA female adaptor lead(what you need to ask for)  like this one 4d0dcde.jpg

use it to jumper your pre-out/main in connection on the rear, and connect an RCA lead to the Female socket on the adaptor lead. That will get you going. You can get them most places that sell electronic bits and peices. I am happy to answer any questionsa you may have 
regards robotek

It's logical since the headphones jack is connected at the main amplifier. Does your new main amp has headphones out?

Hello

You have replaced your old NAD 3020 with NAD C326BEE. You are using the old speaker system with the new NAD 326 too. The Amp you replaced [NAD 3020] have only 20W/channel output power, and the present NAD C326BEE has a rated output power of 100W/channel. Both specifications are for 8Ohms speker impedence. Your old speakers haven't got the power handling capacity for the new Amp. That is why you hear it very clear at low volume levels and disorts at high volume levels. Distortion is not due to the Amp, but with the speaker you uses. You have to replace either speaker system or the speaker in which your old speaker box is fitted, with a new one, whcih can handle the power of the present Amp. OK.

Can i hook up a power amp to my Nad 7155 receiver and how


If the Nad has pre-amp out sockets that are currently connected to the power amp in the receiver. Then you can sever those link and put the pre-amp out into your Aragon inputs.
Otherwise I don't see how you can connect the amp.

My NAD C350 plays very faintly. when I turn the volume dial to the max position, I can bearly hear the music. I can hear properly from earphones output. Thanks


Take care. First put the volume down complete. Then unplug the head phone and than try to raise the volume. Could be the headphone connector does not switch through correct. Could be the connections between the pre and power amp are not in place or not proper pushed in?
Always take care when working with amplifiers. When switching them on with volume to max, you easy can kill your speakers. Also when disconnecting the headphones on full power kan damage the loudspeakers.

My NAD C320 outputs a very low sound volume


Hi there I have a C340 that has similar problem, you must have bought this from ebay, lol.

Nad made a mistake on the C range, the pre - power link can be shorted out. if the pre is shorted out it takes out the pre amplifier stage, I have managed to get the right channel working, I will keep you informed what is the cause of the left channel. I have replaced the pre-amp IC and a couple of Jfets and transistors. Once I have repaired the Amp I could repaire yours if you like???

Hi, I have a NAD C162 Pre-Amp which I am using with a NAD C270 Poer Amp. Th problem is that the Pre-Amp doesn't seem to be driving the Power-Amp efficiently. By this I mean i need to turn the gain up...


Hello, I have an idea:
at the rear side of the NAD preamp there is a switch, it can be in mode MM or MC . Please check it whether it is in right position or not.

Good luck,
gylacz

Sorted it. You have to put the plugs back in the PreampOUt/Main in or it cuts out the pre-amp.

NAD C740 no longer reproducing music through loudspeakers


what was your amp? ic or transistorized? the output transistor of your amp may be opened, mostly it will short but because u still hear sound, maybe open and only the driver transistor are working. replacing output transistor or IC could solve the problem.
