  • Apple products are becoming the hub of a person's entire music and audio collection, so improving the audio quality produced by these devices is key. The Icon iDo from Nuforce converts compressed digital music files that are stored on your Apple mobile device to audiophile grade, CD quality sound. Ideal for music enthusiasts and musicians alike, the iDo extracts audio data in its original digital form (USB Host mode) from your Apple mobile device and delivers bit-perfect, low-jitter, audiophile music file playback through headphones and analog RCA outputs. A separate digital coaxial output is also included on the unit for integrating with high-end audio receivers or to connect a subwoofer.

    The Icon iDo is easy to install and use. By simply attaching the power supply and connecting the unit to a home stereo system using the RCA or single coaxial output, users can enjoy any Apple mobile device's digital music library by connecting the included 30-pin sync/charging cable. Or plug headphones directly into the Icon iDo for personal high quality sound playback in a manner the artist intended it to be heard. The Icon iDo is designed to work with Apple iTunes and iPod software.

    The Icon iDo also offers a built-in headphone amplifier capable of powering power-hungry headsets, giving users a total audio experience. By properly powering headphones, Icon iDo enhances the auditory performance of the headphones because optimal amperage is being delivered to them, allowing for greater audio clarity.

    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.
