I recently purchased a Nad 3020 integrated amp.
It is the previous model with the usb port and a power cable with a female c-5 end.
I was thinking of upgrading the power cord with an AudioQuest NRG-X3 Power Cable (C5).(approx $100)
It seems they are hard to find if not discontinued.
Any suggestions as to a replacement or where to find one.
Thanks in advance.
Greg

Did the NAD 3020 not come with an encapsulated power cable?

The connector in question C5 may have been added at a later time.

You may be able to purchase an adapter.

or

Replace it with a C14 connector.

Think he is referring to the D 3020.

It is amazing how one letter in a part number can make a huge difference, could still use the adapter...
(I missed the USB port part)
NAD 3020 Integrated Amp vs NAD D3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier

Hi
Yes I should have been clearer.
It is........NAD D3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier.
I believe I have found what I need thanks to CAM.

Thank you Ohms as the adapter is available for $20 on amazon canada.
I never thought of that.
Great idea.
