Trade in – NuForce DAC-80 – $450
This is NuForce’s longest running model – I’ve just looked it up and there it is for sale new at NZ$1495 and listed on the Optoma NuForce site which is quite something given we started selling them in 2013!
It still stacks up and one of the best sounding DAC’s round and the NuPrime DAC-9 shares many of it’s characteristics – an AKM chipset, a very good power supply section with toroidal transformer and full volume control.
The input selection is simple – USB, 2x coax and one optical and you have the standard stereo RCA output which can run into both an integrated amp or a power amplifier. Or powered speakers. So run it with your computer, Airport Express or TV, and connect any disc player via coax for best results.
It would be easy to underestimate the sound quality the NuForce delivers – we’ve seen quite rapid improvements in DACs and when the DAC-80 first arrived it replaced the very highly regarded Wadia at over twice the price so it’s clearly a performer. To get appreciably better you will have to aim a lot higher – this unit was only replaced by the NuPrime Evolution DAC and did sterling service in a very nice system. It’s in almost perfect condition and I’ve given it a good listen to check.
Right now it’s in a rather good system with new components that we could only have dreamed about when the DAC-80 was introduced – The Nativ touchscreen/server, the NuPrime MCX amplifier and Monitor Audio Studio speakers. This shows just how good it really is so if you want to hear it for yourself it’s all go.
Monitor Audio Gold GXW15 Subwoofer – demonstration unit $2,000 (5G replacement $5250) – also includes a free pure Silver SlinkyLinks subwoofer cable.
Want big bass? Like 15 inches of serious metal cone driver with 650 watts of pure grunt behind it in a back-breaking but perfectly finished walnut cabinet. Have we got the subwoofer for you…
The Monitor Audio Gold series GXW15 DSP subwoofer is a unique beast. The massive 15″ metal CCAM bass driver cone is lighter than most, and when intelligently driven by the DSP (Digital Signal Processing)amp which corrects and optimises performance, it is considerably faster and more subtle than you might imagine.
But 650 watts of power efficient Class D amplifier carries a fearsome punch. With automated setup backed up by fine tuning via remote control and an easy to understand menu and display system, you can really make the most of the GXW15.
Behind the intimidating specification and undeniable impact which will impress the most demanding surround sound enthusiast and bass freaks, the Monitor Audio subwoofer is brilliant for music; it can easily be integrated with many quality stereo speakers, both shelf, stand or floor standing. The speed and control makes sure it never sounds overblown. You’ll thrill to true full range sound and the power added to your system with greatly improve dynamic performance.
The replacement new Gold 5G subwoofer has just been introduced at $5250.
