What's new at Totally Wired?
Read our news page to catch up on the latest audio innovations and new products that are bound to grab your interest. Digital or analogue, wireless or directly connected, we've got some brilliant new products that are going to make your music sound much better. You'll find these new components work in surprising ways.
The NuPrime DAC-10 is a case in point. Not only is it a state of the art DAC with resolution levels we've only be able to dream about - it also features two analogue inputs and a seriously competent preamplifier with both RCA and balanced outputs. From the first moment we switched the DAC-10 on just a few weeks ago, it was immediately apparent that this is a fantastic sounding device, far better than any we have heard previously. But what is really exciting is the combination of value for money, flexibility and performance it offers. The DAC-10 dramatically improves the performance of all digital sources - disc based, on computer or wireless - and this alone makes it compelling. Add to this the fact that it is a brilliant analogue preamplifier that you can play components such as your turntable system though and you'll start to see the possibilities for both upgrading and simplifying your system.

At the other end of the NuPrime range the little NZ$250 uDSD Dac and headphone amp is a minor miracle. Superficially derived from the NuForce uDAc, this diminutive component is just as well built as the DAC-10 and delivers a level of performance far higher than the price point suggests. Supporting the latest high-resolution music formats,the NuPrime uDSD, is capable of decoding sample rates ranging from 44.1kHz to an astonishing 384kHz (PCM) as well as native DSD decoding ranging from DSD 64 up to DSD 256. It's a USB DAC, it's a headphone amplifier and can connect to both conventional amplifiers, active powered speakers and even power amplifiers. It's DSD capable, has class leading resolution and can even convert from USB to coaxial digital. Connect it with good quality cables, plug in your best headphones and prepare to be impressed. An absolute essential for anyone with an expanding high resolution library on their laptop.
