NuForce DDA 100 Test

The NuForce DDA 100 will be the protagonist of a new generation of amplifiers. His motto: all digital from the signal input to the power amplifier. stereoplay recalls: there was something…

You wrote in 1993: the compact cassette was still alive, but was already violently attacked by the MiniDisc. Separate CD drive / converter station wagons were established gradually, while well informed digital-audio experts for the first time spoke of a digital phenomenon of analog origin – the jitter. Exactly at this time, the editors reached an exceptional device by the then young, German manufacturer of linen mountain stereoplay electronics. It was called short and bu? constantly PowerDAC.

Program was the name: how easily suggests, it was a combination of D/A converter and a downstream power amplifier, which were housed in a common housing at the PowerDAC: Fu? an ultra-short signal path, resulting in excellent sound arose thus r digital sources.

Despite all his Vorzu? ge commercial success of PowerDAC fell but rather moderately, because he bestu exclusively with digital inputs? ckt, at that time only a rather limited clientele said. However, you must attest his creator Ivo Lamin mountain, his time almost two decades ahead to have been: in today’s Hi-Fi landscape with its numerous digital audio sources including computer exactly this concept is not only alive, but it is almost mandatory.

Smart amplifier

It u? therefore actually not too surprised that just the up and coming producer NuForce again takes up the idea of PowerDAC and in a contemporary form berfu? hrt: Finally the Americans with innovative products relating to digital audio sources make up a name for quite some time.

So, then also the brand new, just under 600 euro NuForce DDA 100 actually represents the PowerDAC principle in its purest form – namely completely digital signal flow to the output level. Compared with the stag mountain PowerDAC his external appearance can be however clearly in which direction the audio technology has evolved in the last 20 years. The stag mountain brought at that time more than 15 kilos on the scales, there are 100 straight time 1,500 gramsat the NuForce DDA. Not to mention that the NuForce in terms of volume is also less than one-tenth of the stag mountain.

So, NuForce DDA 100 can be put on the desk for example, loose laptop and monitor. Also you can him safely stack of paper aufbu? s without causing heat: switching amplifier technology, his case is no more than lukewarm.

Digital exclusive

As already the PowerDAC anno 1993 has the DDA 100 only digital signal inputs – as were two optical (Toslink), a coaxial (RCA), as well as asynchronously working USB input. Unterstu? data formats up to 24-bit / 96 kHz, which makes even conditionally hi res suitable for the NuForce will be appreciated.

The left and right speakers catch up with two pretty solid terminals. A headphone output is however not intended.

The operation is self-explanatory: long Dru? press of the volume control switches the DDA 100 or out, briefly, however, the source code to. Is a small remote control with the same functionality.

Hearing test

In the listening test u? berraschte of the NuForce by his vivid and lively, yet tidy and clean sound. Even with Watt-hungry compact speakers such as such as an Dynaudio focus 160 developed the small American amazing temperament and had it even at high volumes in terms of bass Dynamics no shortage.

Although he didn’t play with the same authority as an analog of Yamaha A-S700 and worked as a whole also a little brighter. Nevertheless, the DDA100 made a lot of fun, and more importantly: looking for more music.
