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.

 

 

Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 65 Ultra Performance Shelf/Stand Monitor Loudspeakers

Each SM 65 features a D'Appolito array consisting of two cast-basket 5-1/4" (13cm) second generation BDSS midrange drivers surrounding a 1" (25mm) pure aluminum dome tweeter. The drivers feature Definitive's patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) technology that supports the speaker cone at both the inner and outer edges allowing longer, more linear excursion for greater clarity and finely textured inner detail. A new patent pending Linear Response WaveguideTM smoothes off-axis frequency response and disperses sound over a wider area for crystal clear intelligibility for every listener in the room. The tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.

The twin BDSS long-throw bass/midrange drivers are pressure coupled to a top mounted racetrack bass radiator to extend and amplify bass frequencies. The total bass radiating area of a SM65 is equivalent to a single 12-inch woofer but with far greater control, definition and speed than a single sluggish large woofer. The StudioMonitor's bass performance is nothing short of astonishing in its depth, detail and musicality.

 

Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 65 Monitor Loudspeakers Features:

Slim Elegant Styling with Rambo-Like Brawn

The specially shaped high gloss baffle around the drivers and the tapered enclosure sides enhance sound quality by minimizing diffraction distortion. The enclosure's most important job is to be totally inert and resonance free so as not to color the sound. And that's just we did in engineering the SM enclosures. Internal MDF cross braces further stiffen the system. Tap on the side panel of a StudioMonitor 65 enclosure to hear the solid "thud" of a solid, well-damped cabinet instead of the hollow ring of a poorly constructed speaker.

Phase-Coherent Crossover Networks

  • The crossover network is the real heart of a loudspeaker as it is responsible for perfectly blending together the sound of the various drivers into a musically seamless whole. The sophisticated design used in the SM65 features premium audiophile-grade components such as oversized inductors, Mylar capacitors for linear phase and frequency response. An integrated Zobel network flattens the impedance of the system so that even budget amplifiers will be able to drive the SM65 (although a premium amplifier will bring out all the performance this remarkable speaker has to offer). This preserves the phase coherence, transient response and dynamic integrity of the signal for absolutely lifelike music and home theater reproduction in your home.

The Proof is in the Listening

  • This extraordinary speaker sets a new reference standard for high-accuracy loudspeakers in its class and achieves equally superb performance with both music and movies. The StudioMonitor 65 reproduces a silky smooth, incredibly detailed sonic image at lifelike volume levels with a sense of ease which is truly remarkable. Movies and music are reproduced with unequaled purity, transparency and lifelike realism.

Additional Features:

  • Second generation patented 5-1/4" BDSS mid/bass drivers with Linear Response Waveguide technology for flat, accurate response with micro-detail retrieval and three-dimensional imaging
  • Cast aluminum driver baskets
  • Second generation pure aluminum dome tweeter for smooth, extended highs
  • Non-resonant braced enclosure ensures pure, uncolored performance
  • High-gloss anti-diffraction baffle and shaped enclosure reduce diffraction for open and spacious imaging
