NuForce DDA-100TM | MSRP $549
A design innovation you have to hear to believe.
The NuForce DDA-100 is a Direct-Digital Integrated Amplifier that marks a new juncture in digital sound. The innovative new design converts the digital audio signal into analog form at the last possible stage—the PWM amplifier output—giving listeners the same level of performance as far much more expensive audio gear. The DDA-100's inherently low distortion and noise floor remain in the digital domain from beginning to end, resulting in a remarkably wide dynamic range, crystalline clarity and amazing detail—all for an affordable price.

The HAP-100 is a preamp and headphone amplifier for the audio enthusiast for whom quality headphone listening is a priority. The HAP-100's innovative design offers features never before available at its modest price point. Most significantly, the HAP-100 shares technologies first employed in our flagship P-20 preamp, along with other audiophile-grade developments.
As with the remarkable P-20, the HAP-100 exploits NuForce's most recent work in volume controls. At the unit's core is a switched-resistor ladder network of low-noise, thin-film resistors, one per volume setting, permitting discrete, high-resolution increments of 1dB for the HAP-100's one hundred volume steps.
Audiophile-Class Headphones for the Enthusiast... or Any Music Lover.
The NuForce HP-800 is a headphone specifically designed for the audio enthusiast that longs for genuine musicality and unprecedented value. It delivers the kind of detailed performance that is never harsh nor fatiguing, yet it let's you hear every nuance in the music. Indeed, the HP-800 renders recordings with the kind of natural warmth, realistic highs and visceral bass that will bring all of your recordings to life.

The NuForce Mobile Music Pump (MMP) is a portable headphone amplifier designed to make your music truly come alive… wherever you go.
The fact is that the majority of hand-held audio playback devices simply aren't capable of adequately powering many of today's quality headphones. This is because headphones present a definite challenge to amplifier designers. There are two basic types: the Over-Ear (OE) in general use in the recording industry, and the smaller In-Ear (IE), a.k.a. "ear-bud" type commonly used with portable devices such as MP3 players.
Given the range of available OE and IE headphones, in attempting to accommodate them all, your mobile device’s headphone output is optimized for none. Typically, OE types exhibit sensitivities of about 100dB/mW, whereas IE devices can be 10dB higher or more, e.g., 110dB/mW. Assuming a 10dB difference, the lower sensitivity OE headphones require ten times more power to achieve the same volume as the IE type. If you’re using OE headphones, you’ll really appreciate the NuForce MMP power capability. Your headphones will sound distinctly clearer and more natural.
Just connect the MMP to the headphone output of your MP3 player, Smartphone, iDevice, etc. and finally start experiencing the higher level of performance your headphones were always capable of.
