We manage to find a few spare uDAC2 boards from the factory. Send email to directsales@nuforce.com

By the way, we should have a batch of uDAC2 boards for upgrade by early September.

I'm bringing the original uDAC and uDAC-2 (along with Icon Mobile and HDP) to the Colorado meet this weekend, so people will be able to try them out and hear the differences in their own rig.  Then they might post their impressions here.

Hi, I'm new here and I'm new to Dacs. I'm interested in getting the uDac-2 as my first. I listen to a wide range of music from classical, progressive rock, jazz, electronic, metal, folk, etc. What headphones (range from $100-150) do you recommend that I get with the udac-2?

You should probably start your own thread, since this is mostly dedicated to impressions and uDAC-2 specific questions for Jason. BTW, welcome to Head-Fi.

Thanks a lot, I'll do that and thanks for the welcome.

post #66 of 874

would this be considered one of the front runners for ultra portable BUDGET minded DACs?

post #67 of 874

Yeah, I suppose. How does it compare to the Fiio E7? Does anyone know?

post #68 of 874

Along the same lines, I'm really curious about how the Icon-2 will perform.

Icon-2 has the same USB DAC and headphone amp as uDAC-2.

Sorry for sounding ignorant, but how would you choose between using the uDAC-2's volume pot vs. your headphone amp's volume pot? I'm currently feeding the uDAC-2 to an M-Stage via the RCA out jacks. I originally thought that the uDAC-2's RCA output was straight line out, but I noticed that the volume knob does indeed change the RCA output volume.

Larry, could you please comment on this as I am also interested to know. Cheers...

Just curious how did uDAC-1 compare to Icon-1 in terms of just USB DAC and headphone amp?
