The NuForce DDA-100 is a Direct-Digital Integrated Amplifier that marks a new juncture in digital sound. The innovative new design converts the digital audio signal into analog form at the last possible stage—the PWM amplifier output—giving listeners the same level of performance as far much more expensive audio gear. The DDA-100’s inherently low distortion and noise floor remain in the digital domain from beginning to end, resulting in a remarkably wide dynamic range, crystalline clarity and amazing detail—all for an affordable price.
The DDA-100 doesn’t require the typical DAC stage found in most of today’s digital audio products. Rather, its PWM power amplifier stage is modulated directly by the incoming signal, and the digital-to-analog conversion takes place at the speaker outputs. In effect, the PWM power amplifier stage operates as a power DAC.
This effectively eliminates the DAC-related problems that have plagued serious listeners in the past. Fewer parts result in a more direct signal path, resulting in benefits passed along to you: exquisite sound at an affordable price.
