Nuforce DDA120 Compact Integrated Amplifier With Bluetooth Receiver

DDA120 was developed for one simple purpose: To allow you to enjoy music from any source in fantastic quality. Its diminutive size and elegant styling conceal a sophisticated amplifier capable of extracting every last detail and nuance from your music collection. The DDA120 builds on the success of its predecessor the critically acclaimed, multi award winning DDA100.

 

Nuforce DDA120 Compact Integrated Amplifier Highlights:

  • Fantastic audio quality
  • Connect all your digital and analogue music devices
  • Small and elegant design
  • Massively powerful

 

Nuforce DDA120 Compact Integrated Amplifier Features:

Digital purity

  • Free your digital music collection – connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to play music stored on your smartphone or tablet, stream music from services such as Spotify or listen to your favorite music service. Additionally four digital inputs enable you to connect all your other digital devices making the DDA120 the hub of your digital music system. The minimalist Direct Digital architecture maintains the purity of your digital music - resulting in a perfectly transparent, dynamic and exquisitely detailed sound.

Analogue integrity

  • Whether playing your vinyl collection, hooking up an FM tuner or another non-digital source, your analogue music is treated with respect. Using an ultra-high quality conversion process it follows the same minimalist processing as your digital music and so maintains its original distinctive character.

Power and control

  • Any hi-fi speakers you choose will be driven with ease. The massive power available is used to effortlessly control your speakers with astounding precision ensuring you hear the recording exactly as the artist intended.

Tech info

  • For the very highest wireless Bluetooth sound quality the DDA120 supports aptX and AAC.
  • AptX allows music signal to be sent wirelessly in significantly higher quality than that available from standard Bluetooth. Standard Bluetooth codec (SBC) has variable performance and its weaknesses are very apparent to music lovers including a reduction in high end clarity, muddiness or dullness. The aptX codec works to ensure consistently excellent quality when music data is transferred wirelessly via Bluetooth connection with almost CD quality. Your will instantly experience significantly greater dynamics and infinitely more detail from the music.
  • AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) was designed to achieve better sound quality than MP3 at similar bit rates. Unlike aptX, it is supported by iOS devices. Apple implements AAC over Bluetooth at about 250 kbps - near CD quality.
  • Using the innovative Direct Digital architecture for digital inputs there are no analogue stages in the signal path, keeping music in the digital domain right up to the amplifier speaker outputs. There is no separate DAC, pre-amp or power amp stages. The PWM power amplifier stage is modulated directly by the incoming signal, and the digital-to-analogue conversion takes place at the speaker outputs. In effect, the PWM power amplifier stage operates as a power DAC. Fewer component parts and less conversion processes result in a more direct, purer signal path. The Direct Digital Architecture utilizes a 176.4 kHz input sampling rate with an over-sampling rate of 3GB/s for smoother, more natural reproduction. An on-chip clock reference signal is used for synchronizing and re-clocking incoming digital audio data for exceptionally low jitter performance.
  • Analogue inputs are sampled using a 24-bit, 96 kHz conversion process before being fed into the Direct Digital architecture.
  • The amplifier delivers 75Wrms into 4 Ohms with a remarkably linear frequency and phase response of +/- 0.1dB from 20 to 20kHz, and a THD+N of 0.07% with an A-weighted signal-to-noise ratio of greater than 95dB.

Audioengine P4 Bookshelf Speakers Features:

Why passive speakers?

  • The AP4 passive speakers are full-sounding bookshelf speakers in a satellite-sized package. The goal with AP4 was to design a small but powerful bookshelf speaker for people that already have surround receivers or amplifiers and are looking for the same Audioengine sound and quality in a passive loudspeaker.

Already have an amplifier?

  • "If you already have an power amp or don't want to give up that big surround receiver then the AP4 is for you. The AP4 has excellent bass response for its size, which is evident when used either as stereo speakers or as satellite surround speakers in your home theater setup. AP4 sounds great sitting on stands, on a bookshelf, or mounted on a wall using the integrated threaded inserts which are compatible with most wall or ceiling mount bracket systems."

Part of the Family

  • Audioengine active and passive speaker models share a similar "voicing" and overall tuning so that you are assured a matched system no matter which of their speakers or Audioengine wireless adapters you decide to add to your system.

Versatile

  • The AP4 passive speakers are perfect for digital hybrid amplifiers (Class-D, Class-T, etc.) as well as most stereo receivers, integrated amps, and tube amplifiers. The AP4 has a 4 ohm impedance rating but will sound great when connected to almost any receiver or power amp with 4, 6 or 8 ohm speaker output impedance.

Hear the Difference

  • The Audioengine P4 sets a new level of quality and easy setup. Mount a pair on a wall or stand as surround speakers in a home theater system or place them on a shelf or table for a compact stereo setup. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast we guarantee you will still hear a difference!

Wall or Ceiling Mount

  • The P4 speakers include two standard 1/4" threaded inserts on the rear panel and another insert on the bottom of each P4 cabinet for attaching a speaker mount or bracket. They recommend using products by companies such as OmniMount or Sanus. Before installing mounts or brackets make sure you consult all documentation and carefully follow the installation instructions.

Custom Built

  • Audioengine designs and manufactures their own tweeters, woofers, and many other critical components. In other words, these are not "box built" speakers with off-the-shelf parts but entirely custom-designed to their specifications. What they do not fabricate directly in their factory they have custom-made to their designs. The cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, and crossovers are all painstakingly tuned together for each model.

Drivers

  • Audioengine uses audiophile quality, ferro fluid cooled, silk dome tweeters with Neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters hold up well under high poweand the edge-driven design gives very smooth response. The woofers are Kevlar woven glass aramid composite with rubber surrounds. Kevlar is obviously very strong, which means that the woofer retains its shape when being driven at high levels. The speaker materials and construction are robust enough to stand up to some serious thrashing, so speaker grills aren’t needed. In other words, they did their homework on the speaker drivers and they will sound and look great after many years of use.

Cabinets

  • To minimize unwanted resonances and distortion, Audioengine cabinets have thick high-resin MDF walls with extensive internal bracing. Heavy internal sound-damping material is used to reduce unwanted sound reflections inside the cabinet. All cabinet edges are rounded which look great and reduce high-frequency diffraction effects on the front baffles. The P4 cabinet contains tuned, front-port slots.

Shielding

  • Both drivers are directly magnetically shielded which allow you to place the speakers within a few inches of a video monitor. This shielding also offers protection for hard drive-based digital music players.
