NuForce Cube

| MSRP $99 $79

A portable speaker, headphone amp, and audiophile-grade USB DAC with extraordinary sound.

The NuForce Cube is engineered to be your all-in-one mobile audio center. If you want good sound wherever you go, then you'll find it an amazingly convenient and easy to carry companion. In one tiny cube-shaped enclosure, we have united a quality headphone amplifier, high performance speaker, and audiophile grade USB DAC. Whether your music source happens to be a computer, cell phone or other portable music device, the Cube can accommodate them all while significantly improving their sound.

Nuforce USB Audio devices are designed to work with x86 architecture.  Tablet devices running Windows 8 (RT) are not supported.

 

Speaker

You can hear NuForce’s experience in high-end audio electronics--along with a very high-quality speaker driver--in Cube's superior sound, which blows cheap plastic, low-quality portable speakers out of the water. With the Cube, listeners no longer have to sacrifice great sound for portability. Despite its small 2” cube frame, the Cube offers audio detail, depth and dimension other portable speakers simply aren't designed to deliver. You'll hear the character of your favorite singer’s voice, the clarity and fine details of the musical instruments, the squeaky floor in a horror movie, or the subtle rumbling of the race car engine.

USB DAC

The Cube’s USB digital-to-analog converter (DAC) accepts digital music directly from the computer and bypasses the computer's on-board DAC, which are often low-quality and result in compromised sound, to offer a major improvement over the sound quality.

Headphone Amp

The Cube’s finely optimized amplifier circuit takes the audio to a new level, providing plenty of power to drive even the most power-hungry set of "cans”. It helps ensure that the headphones provide all the clarity, detail and power they're designed to deliver.

Note: If you use headphones primarily for music listening, consider the uDAC-2, which has a higher-performance DAC and headphone amp than those of the Cube Speaker.

"...Using the Cube couldn't be any more simple...Plugging in your audio source turns the device on and a tiny red LED light will turn on behind the mesh speaker grille letting you know the unit is powered on...NuForce's Cube literally blows away any speaker that shares its small cubic size... The Cube was built to be a pico-sized portable speaker without sacrificing sound quality...
