Nuforce HDP is a solid DAC and amp that keeps up with the big guys!
 
I am impressed with this little Nuforce HDP both as a DAC and as a headphone amplifier; which is high praise from someone who owns a $15,000 headphone rig with Stax SR-007, Sennheiser HE60 and HD800 headphones, a Woo WES amp, Eddie Current ZDT amp, and PS Audio Perfectwave DAC.The HDP seems to offer a lot of performance in a small package, and easily outperforms my original Nuforce Icon amp that I bought May 2008 for my computer desktop. And the beauty is that it is small enough tha...

Nuforce HDP is Shockingly Good DAC/Amp
 
I bought one of the original 12 HDPs as soon as they became available. Since I got it I've been running it 24/7 & it keeps getting better. For 6 months I've been looking for a dac or dac/amp combo that sounded good enough to allow me to move my $1895 Benchmark DAC1 HDR (which was further modded with $995 worth of upgrades) off my PC back to my stereo system (for which it was purchased). ll dacs later I've finally got the unit I was looking for. In fact, I can already say that when using full-s...

Almost perfect, 1/2 star deduction for one small criticism
 
(Reposting my review from the silver version of this product, which I purchased).I purchased this for use at my computer because I could connect powered speakers to it as well as my headphones. The headphones are Sennheiser HD650's, and the speakers are Audioengine A5's (chosen to be bit more forgiving of rock and pop recordings which can sometimes sound too harsh on more revealing equipment). My music library is in FLAC format, a combination of CD rips, high-res releases from audi...

Very good unit with a few caveats
 
This review is copied over from my review of the silver case version of this found here: NuForce Icon HDP (High-end Headphone Amp, USB DAC, Preamp), SilverI've had the unit for about 3 months now. Overall, I would give it 4.5/5 stars.---------------------------------------------------Here were my initial impressions on the first day:The unit was packaged very nicely when it arrived. What I didn't like was the packaging within the box. The HDP and its acc...

Giant killer DAC/headphone amp combo
 
I've been waiting ages for a moderately priced headphone amp / DAC combo that could handle high resolution audio (>16 bits, >44.1kHz) straight from my computer, while also working well with my hard-to-drive (but great sounding) AKG 701s. Upon first reading about the NuForce ICON HDP I thought it would fit the bill and, after a few months of product release delays, it's finally here.I actually got the silver version, rather than the black one, which has a blasted aluminum appearance ...

Needs patience
 
Guess i have only one thing to add to the other reviewers. - Be patient with this amplifier. Personally i wasnt impressed with it at all when i first recieved it. The sound was cold, closed and hard - the treble was hysteric. It was even hurting my ears. So i left it on for 24 hours as many reviewers advices. Still i wasnt really impressed - so if you get this amp and get the same experience as me - try to burn it in for a few hundred hours before you decide. I think mine has been running for at...

Great Customer Service, soso sound
 
I received this unit a few months ago, It looked great except for the knobs which were not properly aligned to the printed symbols (like for USB use it wouldn't center on U, it would be off to the right).. For the price this bugged me, but I contacted Nuforce and they said that was not normal and they would replace it. So I started testing it to see how the sound quality was with my Denon D7000s and my Ultrasone Pro 2900s. Unfortunately this solid state amp removed all the qualities that I loved...

Good Investment
 
With this little box - quite stylish and elegant in a pc way (I have a black laptop so the black version is perfect) - you would have a small stereo on your desktop. Honestly, I cannot really tell the difference between laptop speakers and this except for volume and that the analog knob is really cool, but the placebo effect works and I'm enjoying my music like never before.The problem is you can only go so far with mp3 because they are not perfect to begin with. This is a convenie...

AWESOME!
 
This Amp rocks! I use it primarily with AKG 702's but it sounds great with all of my headphones. I am a pro Audio Engineer, Professor of Recording Technologies at a major University and a headphone geek. I own about $5000 worth of headphones. The clarity and power are first class and is better than any decice I have tested costing twice the price.

So incredible
 
I can't keep up with the other reviewers here but I want to toss in my two cents for what it's worth.I have the Icon HDP and use it to drive Senn HD 650s and M-Audio AV-40s. Simply put, it's amazing. Whether I use the $450 Sennheisers or the $150 M-Audios I can hear things in my favorite songs I've never heard before even on "hi-fi" home stereos. The ability of the Icon HDP's DAC to reproduce audio is astonishing.I thought I would need special 96k/24bit FLAC files to h...
