Wouldn't you love a new system that was completely modern, highly capable, great sounding and easily affordable. Yes – you can have it all. We're all about simple and effective solutions for your audio needs. It's also about giving you choice – this doesn't have to mean a bewildering array of options. Rather, a clear set of alternatives that will fill a varied range of requirements balancing sound quality, features and cost.
NuForce DDA-100 digital amplifer NZ$ 695*, was $899.
Match the DDA-100 with any of our wide range of speakers - Monitor Audio, Sonus faber or Cambridge Audio and build your own great sounding digital system for far less than you'd expect.
A simple system with the DDA-100 and a pair of speakers will outperform any conventional option at the same price - and a great many for more. Whether you are playing music from your computer, iPhone, CD or BluRay player, AirPort Express or Apple TV, the DDA100 is the smart, powerful cool running alternative to conventional amplifiers. It's so easy to enjoy music with the NuForce I cannot see why anyone looking at their first system, upgrading or just wanting to simplify would not think otherwise.
"the sound of the NuForce DDA-100 is so impeccable, up to the point when it runs out of power, is still a sonic bargain. I haven’t heard any integrated amplifier with DAC capabilities priced near this combo that offers any serious sonic competition.
You may find that the DDA-100 is simply the best integrated amplifier solution that you've ever heard. And for those readers who still firmly believe that all-digital amplifiers are for someone else’s system, listening to the DDA-100 will be, as it was for me, a revelation."
Let's take a closer look at the NuForce option. The DDA-100 is a remarkable device - featuring high performance digital to analogue conversion via 4 inputs - two optical, USB and one coaxial - plus outputs for speakers, a subwoofer and even a remote control. How NuForce pack all this into such a small package and make it sound so good is the really interesting story.
The DDA-100 is supremely power efficient - unlike any conventional amplifier. NuForce have solved the problems surrounding switching power supplies and have an amplifier design that doesn’t have heat dissipation issues - which means it can be smaller, cost less to build and ship, last longer and sound better (because of reduced mains interference, shorter signal paths and high quality components).
Simplicity is the key. Given the features included systems like iTunes, you can do anything you want via software. You'll love the small size, the easy connection and simple operation. Take this as a statement of political intent: We'd rather sell 10 little systems to individuals that are thrilled to get sound better than they expected for less from a brand they might never have heard of, than sell a single $10,000 system.
While you could team the DDA-100 with smaller speakers, we think that if you'll quickly warm to the new Monitor Audio model - they didn't pick up the 'Product of the Year' award from What HiFi in the UK buy not being exceptionally capable, well built and finished - with a choice of 2 woodgrains - dark walnut or black ash.
You are not without upgrade options either. As much as we love the DDA-100 for all it can do, the new Quad Vena is another ball game again. And the Monitor Audio Silver series Silver 1 speakers are likewise another step up. You'd be surprised how far you can go - both Sonus faber and the Monitor Audio Gold GX series speakers will show you just how good the NuForce options really are. Make the most of our experience if you'd like look at any variations on the theme - we've got plenty of options that we can show you to customize the system to perfectly fit your personal tastes and requirements.
But let's not lose sight of the value theme. Where we might have previously considered a 3 piece system, you can now do more with 2. Monitor Audio have ruthlessly plundered their more costly ranges and created a speaker that does what we would have been happy with at twice the price only a couple of years ago. The NuForce DDA100 delivers full 96kHz/24 bit capability - far in excess of CD and harnesses revolutionary design pilfered directly from their more costly reference amplifiers. It wasn't that long ago we had to spend at least 4 times more to achieve a result that still fell short of the DDA-100s performance.
We'd love to help you get into a great new system - Freight is free anywhere in the country if you'd like to take up our internet banking option. You've got the choice of all available finishes in both amp and speakers. So drop us an e mail or give us a call now on 0800 909 101 and find out what we can do for you.
