TestFreaks Data











I’ve never tried one of these, then again I never really thought about using one or thought I had the need for one but I’ve been thinking about it and I might have a need for one actually, I think. Doing a lot of thinking lately it seems huh? Anyway, NuForce has just announced the 3rd generation digital audio converter called the uDAC-3 and it’s what it sounds like a USB powered digital audio converter that helps make your music sound a whole lot better! Price is $125 and with the release of the 3rd gen, the uDAC-2 is now only $99.
