Ultra-Portable DAC/Amp

Small enough to fit in your pocket. Powerful enough to play your music to its full potential. That’s the NuForce uDAC-5, a travel-friendly DAC/amp that—at just 3.5 ounces—makes it easy to enjoy high-res audio at home and on the go. The upgraded version of the popular uDAC-3, it offers twice the power and nearly twice the current reserves of its predecessor, and comes equipped with the ESS Sabre 9010 K2M DAC chip. Delivering clear, detailed sound with support for PCM up to 384 kHz, DSD 256, and DXD, it can be used as both a DAC and headphone amp—or exclusively as a DAC when you’re ready to make the switch to a larger, discrete amplifier.

About NuForce

Founded in California in 2004, NuForce was started by a pair of entrepreneurs who wanted to create amazing audio experiences at prices people could afford. Ten years later, to expand its manufacturing expertise, NuForce became part of Optoma, a world-famous projector manufacturer. NuForce’s earphones are conceptualized from the ground up by its top design and engineering experts, without using off-the-shelf designs like other manufacturers. Its products are known by audiophiles for their outstanding industrial design and sound quality. NuForce has also collaborated with Massdrop on two custom in-ear monitors: the award-winning EDC and the popular three-driver EDC3.
