"World-class performance from your digital source" High Performance Headphone Amp and USB DAC
The Nuforce Icon HD incorporates a full-speed USB DAC and a headphone-amplifier circuit. The Icon HD is designed for users who want the Icon HDP's world-class USB DAC and headphone-amp performance without having a need for the Icon HDP's flexibilities. As the heart of the music enthusiast's desktop system, the NuForce HD operates in harmony with the NuForce Icon Amp/30 as a small yet impactful audio system.
Note: The Icon HDP employs the same DAC as our high-end CDP-8 (MSRP $1450.00). The following design features contributed to the stellar performance of the Icon HD:
* Components along the signal path are minimized.
* The 24/96 USB interface outputs a I2S signal to a high-quality DAC.
* The digital circuit occupies a separate daughter board.
* The DAC chip consists of four internal 24/192kHz DACs that provide a fully differential and balanced output. The differential signal's DC offset operates without a need for decoupling caps.
* Digital and analog voltages each have separately isolated internal power regulations.
