NuForce Introduces DAC-100, a Digital to Analog Converter and Headphone Amp


NuForce_DAC-100_DAC.jpgNuForce recently announced a digital-to-analog converter (supports USB and S/PDIF) and headphone amplifier designed for consumers seeking a higher level of performance.
The DAC-100 accepts up to four digital input sources and features a precision digital volume control, a high-power headphone amplifier section with low distortion, a high-resolution analog RCA output stage, and a wireless remote.

The DAC-100's digital input stage operates in an asynchronous mode independent of any timing errors associated with the incoming digital audio stream. The input stage synchronizes the data to an internally referenced timing signal generated by a stable circuit. The re-clocking circuit's accuracy is such that any negative timing errors (jitter) are reduced to near theoretical limits, according to NuForce.

The DAC-100's headphone amp delivers enough power to drive most headphones with authority. It provides a full 500-milliwatts Single-Ended Class A power.

A digital 32-bit volume control offers precise channel tracking. Unlike more common digital volume controls operating at 24 or 16-bits, the 32-bit dynamic range of the DAC-100's volume control reportedly avoids any loss of low-level resolution.

The analog preamp stage is a minimalist design that offers a signal path that approaches a "straight wire with gain" level of performance. Combined with top quality parts and a full 2.0Vrms signal level at the RCA outputs, the preamp section of the DAC-100 ensures that only the purest of analog music signals will ever be presented to your preamplifier.

A 24-bit, 192kHz DAC stage accurately converts digital audio data back to an analog signal at its native sampling rate. No up-sampling or other data manipulation is employed.

The NuForce DAC-100 is available worldwide for a suggested retail price of US $1095.00 and shipping immediately. Visit NuForce Online Store, Nuforce Amazon Online Store and NuForce resellers.
