NuForce Today Releases DAC-80, A Digital-to-Analog Converter Designed to Deliver The Finest High-end Audio at A Modest Price-point. The NuForce DAC-80 retains the DAC-100’s high-end performance parameters minus the headphone amp, thus permitting us to offer the DAC-80 at a lower price. Customers can now pair the DAC-80 with the NuForce HAP-100 Class-A Headphone Amp and Preamp or any future Class-A NuForce headphone-amp products.

NuForce, Inc., a leader in professional and consumer audio gear, introduces the NuForce DAC-80 today. Incorporating several NuForce innovations, the DAC-80 is a digital-to-analog converter supporting USB and S/PDIF for consumers seeking a level of performance typically found in the finest audiophile equipment. The DAC-80, which accepts up to four digital input sources, features a precision digital volume control, a high-resolution analog RCA output stage, and a convenient wireless remote.

Low Jitter
The DAC-80’s digital input stage operates in an asynchronous mode independent of timing errors associated with the incoming digital audio stream. The input stage synchronizes the data to an internally referenced timing signal generated by an exceptionally stable circuit. The re-clocking circuit’s accuracy is such that any negative timing errors (jitter) are reduced to near theoretical limits.

Precision Volume Control
A digital 32-bit volume control offers precise channel tracking. Unlike digital volume controls operating at 24 or 16 bits, the 32-bit dynamic range of the DAC-100’s volume control avoids any loss of low-level resolution.

Transparent Preamp
The analog preamp stage is a minimalist design offering a signal path that approaches the theoretical straight-wire-with-gain level of performance. Combined with top-quality parts and a full 2.0Vrms signal level at the RCA outputs, the preamp section of the DAC-100 ensures that only the purest of analog music signals will ever be presented to your preamplifier.

No Up-sampling
A 24-bit, 192kHz DAC stage accurately converts digital audio data to an analog signal at its native sampling rate. No up-sampling or other questionable data manipulation is ever employed.

Pricing and availability
The NuForce DAC-80 is available worldwide at a suggested retail price of $795 USD, will be shipping June 3, 2013.
