Regardless of how the signal is delivered to it, every speaker is still a speaker at its core, so sound quality always dependends on the fundamental principles of speaker design, including the materials used. We kept this in mind when designing the S3-BT, which we built upon a platform of advanced design and superior components. The woofer is constructed using a proprietary "anti-resonance" cone technique and powerful magnet assembly, while the tweeter is a custom soft-dome design known among audiophiles for offering the lowest distortion and smoothest natural response.
In its "standard mode," out-of-the-box form, the S3-BT with apt-X codec offers exceptional Bluetooth performance. Even so, for those hardcore audiophiles who demand the highest level of wireless fidelity, we've made the S3-BT upgradeable by including an additional set of analog inputs in the design. This allows the user to bypass the standard Bluetooth connection in favor of using NuForce's own Air DAC wireless system, or even a wired connection.
The advantage to using the NuForce Air DAC is that it was designed to achieve a level of true 16-bit performance that simply isn't possible with the Bluetooth standard. As good as Bluetooth with apt-X is, the S3-BT mated with the NuForce Air DAC sounds even better.
Whether you choose to use the S3-BT's "standard mode" Bluetooth wireless, or upgrade its sound with the Air DAC system, the S3-BT offers a much needed, audiophile-grade alternative to mediocre wireless sound. Don't settle for less than the best any longer: get the clarity, detail and power all NuForce products are known for, with the NuForce S3-BT.
