NUFORCE HAS ANNOUNCED the release of the Icon DAC, an audiophile-grade Digital Audio Converter and headphone amplifier for Android devices and Mac and PC computers.

The Icon DAC delivers the latest in mobile device connectivity by supporting USB audio for Android (v4.1 and beyond with OTG), Mac and PC (with advanced PCM and DSD). It also features a very high-powered headphone amplifier, a linear volume control and genuine audiophile construction.The Icon DAC is packed with the latest technology and accepts PCM sample rates up to 96 kHz. This 32-bit DAC supports 24-bit asynchronous operation while also providing Direct-Stream Digital (DSD) decoding capability.

WD-NuForce-IconDACFor discriminating headphone listeners, the Icon DAC includes a proprietary headphone stage that drives the most demanding 600-Ohm headphones with ease.

Using linear up-conversion topology, the Icon DAC delivers a 24V rail-to-rail supply voltage to the amplifier circuits, resulting in ultra-fast transient reproduction and uncompromised peak dynamic performance.

As a control center/preamplifier for use with external amplifier and speaker arrangements, audiophile grade circuit design and parts ensure that the Icon DAC always delivers the ultimate in clarity to its stereo RCA outputs. A coaxial S/PDIF output is included for added system flexibility.

The design goes several steps further to include a linear power supply that provides only pure DC power to all circuits, a TOCOS high-resolution linear volume control for accurate rendering of critical low-level information, and quality construction throughout.

Available now at $499 RRP
