At $299, NuForce's new DAC promises to give you improved sound at a reasonable price.
Your Blu-ray player sounds amazing, and why shouldn't it? It's capable of high quality sound right out of the box and if you've got it running through a nice receiver or amp to some quality speakers then you're enjoying some of the best sound out there right now. Streaming devices like the Roku player and Apple TV are a different story.
This doesn't please NuForce CEO Jason Lim. " We developed Dia out of my own personal frustration after I purchased an Apple TV and realized that there was no affordable and easy-to-use audiophile-grade digital amplifier solution," he says. "Dia is an answer for consumers that want phenomenal sound from the devices they already own without breaking the bank."
Of course, you can use it for more than just your over-the-top devices. Anything that you want to get nice clear 2.1 audio from. You can pick up the Dia on Amazon for $299.
