NuForce Icon-2 Amplifier and uDAC-2

High-End 24bit/96kHz Modular Audio Systems For the Mass-Consumer Market

NuForce announced the Icon-2 and uDAC-2 desktop audio components. Together with the recently released high-end Icon HDP and Icon Amp, this series completes a Modular Systems approach for bringing high-end audio to the mass-consumer market. Built on the highly successful Icon platform, the full NuForce line of 24bit/96kHz audio components offers heretofore unattainable performance levels for desktop or other computer-based music environments.

As a headphone amp, preamp, USB (24bit/96kHz) and S/PDIF (24bit/192kHz) DAC, NuForce's Icon HDP leads the way with unprecedented accuracy and resolution. The 24Wx2 Icon Amp serves as a companion piece to the Icon HDP. The USB-powered and portable uDAC-2 offers a high quality USB DAC and headphone amp for those seeking high-performance audio from their computer music source. As a step beyond the successful uDAC, the uDAC-2 boasts a highly linear TOCOS volume control for improved channel tracking at low listening levels, in addition to 24bit/96kHz USB DAC and an improved headphone amp. Building upon the award-winning Icon integrated amplifier, the Icon-2 offers 24Wx2 power, 24bit/96kHz DAC, an improved headphone amp and preamp circuit.

With the addition of the uDAC-2, Icon-2, Icon HDP and Icon Amp to its existing product line, NuForce has positioned itself to offer the most comprehensive combination of high-performing 24bit/96kHz desktop and mobile audio solutions to be found anywhere in the marketplace. Jason Lim, NuForce's CEO: “As a leader in the high-end audiophile market, we want to take the lead in offering high performance audio for portable and desktop market. And we will make it affordable!”
