July 29, 2014 This Little Box !!

As I posted on the vendors 'Feed-Back' page of e-bay ; "I ain't no 'Audio-Phile' but I know butter when I hear it " ... 'This little box' (I mean little / smaller than a pack of cigarettes) Cleans up the audio signal so well compared to what comes out of the 'Headphone Jack' on your computer ,, It's Amazing to me : 'Nano' electronics works ... :: CAVEAT ,, it does disable my head phone jack on my computer & also my external speakers that run through a mini amp plugged into the back of the machine via computer speakers jack ;; to solve this I leave the unit (NuForce) on my desk ,, when not in use I just unplug it (USB jack) on the back of the little box .. Minor Issue to me :

July 1, 2014 Good Value, Nice Sound

24-bit/96kHz specs very impressive for the price, especially the heavily discounted one offered by this seller.

Sounds great right out of the box after appropriate sound card adjustments are made, and over the past few weeks it sounds as it it's warmed up considerably after some burn-in as well.

Good cables make a difference, I'm running a Blue Jeans Cable co. 35mm. or 1/8th Y-cable from the front-mounted headphone out to the back of my vintage Wintec R1120 receiver, in turn driving Ohm Walsh 2 speakers.

Additionally, it's well-built out of anodized aluminum, has nice switch feel, and has attractive, inconspicuous, modern design.

I got this for work, so I can listen to music properly. I basically use it for headphones only.
The sound isn't bad (though my Cowon D2 has better sound), but it's way better than the onboard crap my computer here has, plus it's nice to be able to reach high volumes without losing quality.
In short, I'd say it's an OK device with mediocre sound quality, but for the price I don't think one could/should expect much more.
I'd buy it again.
