I got bit by the vintage NAD bug last year and purchased this preamp along with an NAD 2400, which I'll be listing at a later date, and now it's time to move onto something else.
As you can see, it's in excellent shape cosmetically and comes with the original manual, box, and packing materials. Besides the design of the casework, I was most interested in its phono stage. It didn't disappoint and easily betters what you find in many sub-$1000 integrated amps.
Although all controls function flawlessly, the headphone amp isn't working. Could be an easy fix but I never looked into it.
From the NAD Data sheet:
Behind its elegant and uncluttered front panel, the circuitry in the NAD 1000 provides performance equal to pre-amplifiers costing up to twice the price, The 1000 incorporates inputs for CD, tuner tape and video, plus separate phono pre-amp circuitry, using discrete transistors in an optimised circuit. The ‘Tone Defeat’ button provides a ‘straight through’ signal path, by-passing the tone control circuits. NAD’s resourceful engineering has resulted in a high performance control unit for use with single or multiple power amplifiers (bi-amping) and active loudspeakers at a remarkably low cost.
