Nuforce Icon Integrated Amplifier

 

When I first opened its box, I really did think the NuForce Icon was cute, and had the same level of expectation one often has of cute things: not very high. Boy, did the Icon set me straight. The Icon isn't perfect. I tried it with my NEAR 50Me Mk.II...

Nuforce Icon HDP - Fantastic Value and Performance

 

I purchased the Nuforce Icon HDP along with Sennheiser HD 650 headphones as my first desktop setup about six months ago. I'll start off by saying that the HDP has been a fantastic purchase that I am thrilled with and enthusiastically recommend,...

Outstanding 24/96 USB section, sleek form factor, great price to performance, clear and detailed sound signature, fast, synergy with Sennheiser HDs

Might not go well with bright cans

NuForce Icon

 

Nice "do everything" pre-amp, USB DAC, amplifier, headphone amp, in a tiny package. Excellent for a small desktop system running computer/iTunes out via USB, powering a set a desktop monitors and headphones. It's also a nice little component to have...

Does practically everything for very little money

none at it's price, but it is a budget component

Exactly like the HDP stripped of all things unnecessary for straight headphone listening

 

This is exactly like the $100 more expensive Icon HDP. I'll quote the description on Nuforce's website: "The Icon HD is designed for users who want the Icon HDP's world-class USB DAC and headphone-amp performance without having a need for the Icon...

Small, solid, visually attractive. Sounds both as clear and as hard and strong as diamond

None
