The NAD 1240 is a pre amplifier in the solid state amplifier category. It was manufactured from 1987 to unknown.
Lou Zar (March 30, 2011): The NAD 1240 continues the NAD tradition of remarkable price/performance value. An audiophile quality preamplifier at an extraordinarily low price, the NAD 1240 is the optimum choice for listeners who want a simple, high performance control center for use with a powerful amplifier, a bi-amplified system, or active powered loudspeakers.
