  • More Info

    A Digital to Analog Converter, also known as a DAC, is a device that converts a digital code to an analog signal. Most modern audio signals are stored in digital form (for example MP3s and CDs) and in order to be heard through speakers they must be converted into an analog signal. Most digital music players, such as a Smartphone or iPod, and PC sound cards come with internal DACs, although, they are very basic and do not deliver music in high resolution. Nuforce delivers a high quality DAC system with internal amplifier that allows you to play your music in high definition at the volume level that you desire. This system is the ideal peripheral for the music lover that stores their music library on their PC or Mac.
