Essential Info

The majority of computers today have decent on-board sound cards, however they provide a very lean and metallic sound. Perhaps this sound may work for some people but definitely not everyone. For those people who listen to music from their computer or laptop and demand a higher quality sound, replacing the sound card can be a quite an ordeal and even then you may not achieve the sound that you are looking for. The Icon HDP Full Speed DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) from Nuforce is a simple and extremely efficient solution to achieve the sound quality that you are looking for. This unit incorporates a full-speed USB DAC (24bit / 96kHz) and full-function S/PDIF (24bit/192kHz), plus a headphone-amplifier circuit and preamp output. Supporting digital USB, coaxial and 3.5mm optical modes, along with an analog line input. The Icon HDP accommodates all manner of audio devices such as your computer (Mac or PC), portable music player, headphones, Blu-Ray players, cable and satellite boxes, and even gaming consoles. The Icon HDP, which has been designed to serve as the heart of a high-performance audio system, competes head on with DACs and preamps that are several times its price.

The Icon HDP comes in a multitude of colors: Black, Red, and Silver.

  • 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.
