Milpitas, Calif. – NuForce
introduced the Dia, a digital audio converter (DAC) and amplifier for home A/V
and streaming devices.
To operate, users
connect their CE devices to the Dia’s optical or coaxial digital inputs.
According to the company, the Dia improves the device’s audio since it bypasses
the internal built-in digital-to-analog converters found in most A/V equipment
and performs that function separately.
It can be used with a
variety of devices, including TVs, satellite receivers, gaming systems and
Blu-ray players. Features include a max sampling rate of 192kHz, 24-bit
resolution, a 20Hz to 20,000Hz frequency range, an IR remote and a $299
suggested retail. It weighs 1 pound and is currently available.
