Nuforce uDAC3 Portable Headphone Amplifier Features:

More Power

  • Small enough to fit in your pocket, but packing the serious earphone power required to produce the extra bass and volume in the noisiest of environments - with the uDAC3 you can enjoy perfect sound from your laptop, anywhere.

More Detail

  • The uDAC3 uses USB for the audio connection bypassing your laptop's low quality soundcard and earphone output. It then processes your digital music directly – giving you much better sound than is possible from your laptops earphone output.

Not Just For Audiophiles

  • If you’re a gamer you will experience a more accurate and realistic sound track, you’ll hear subtle audio cues that others won’t, increasing your performance and enjoyment.
  • Musicians, producers and DJ’s use the uDAC3 as an ultra-portable monitoring solution enabling them to work anywhere with ultimate precision.
  • If you use Skype, YouTube, watch movies or use online music services like Spotify or Pandora on your laptop and want better sound quality then the uDAC3 is for you!

At Home

  • The uDAC3 is perfect for use at home as well as when one is out and about. Unusually for an ultra-portable DAC, it has both analogue and digital output connections, in addition to the earphone amplifier, so you can connect it to your amplifier and speakers at home or in the studio.

Tech info

  • As you would expect, only the purest analogue circuit topology has been employed in the uDAC3, which among other features includes the elimination of all capacitors from the signal path. The uDAC3 derives its operating power directly from the USB port of your computer and then engages a special "boost" circuit that ensures ample voltage is always available for explosive reproduction of high-speed musical dynamics.
  • At the heart of the uDAC3 is a 24bit/96kHz DAC that employs the latest asynchronous USB communication. A double jitter-reduction mechanism at data level and at the over-sampling filter stage ensures that you'll always hear a harmonically accurate presentation.
  • The earphone amplifier is suitable for driving earphones with impedances ranging from 16 – 300 Ohms and has 80mW x 2 (16 Ohms) power available.
