The uDAC-2 Signature Gold Edition is a high-performance 24bit/96kHz USB digital audio converter that improves the sound of digital music

NuForce introduced its uDAC-2 Signature Gold Edition USB digital audio converter for headphone enthusiasts. The uDAC-2 SGE combines a USB DAC and a headphone amp into one ultra-portable device, for those seeking high-performance audio from their digital music files. Retaining the classic look of the uDAC-2, the elegant uDAC-2 SGE is adorned with a genuine Swarovski crystal on the volume control and encapsulated in a lustrous 24K gold-plated chassis with stainless steel front and back panels.

This uDAC-2 SGE was designed for the refined consumer that desires audio products with exquisite design, while retaining superior sound quality. The uDAC-2 SGE connects a user's personal computer to their home stereo system, desktop sound system or headphones for superior sounding audio. Its compact size, power and performance make the uDAC-2 SGE the ideal companion for any discerning music enthusiast.

When the uDAC-2 SGE is connected to a computer via the included USB cable, it processes incoming music data files via its audiophile-grade USB audio receiver and then uses a high performance D/A converter chip to translate the data into analog signal, which is then piped out to the connected stereo component, active speakers or headphones. This convergence process allows users to unlock the audio potential of their digital music files and hear their music the way it was intended.

The headphone amplifier within the uDAC-2 SGE enables users to plug in their favorite headphones into its 3.5mm jack. This amplifier can enhance the auditory performance in a pair of headphones by properly powering them, delivering optimal amperage which will allow for greater audio clarity.

The uDAC-2 SGE comes packaged with an ensemble of very fine accessories such as protective leather case, premium USB cable, cleaning cloth and carrying pouch
