The Heart of the AirDAC Wireless System
The NuForce AirDAC Receiver is the heart of the NuForce Wireless audio system. The AirDAC is simple to use. Just plug the line-level outputs into the inputs of an integrated amp, receiver, preamp, or powered speakers. Then stream music to your hi-fi via an iTX transmitter plugged into your Apple device (iPhone, iPod, or iPad) or via a uTX transmitter plugged into your computer or laptop (PC or Mac).
The NuForce Air DAC wireless DAC/receiver and associated TX transmitters are based on a new wireless technology known as SKAA, which provides seamless operation and a consistent user interface across different SKAA devices. SKAA technology has several advantages resulting in CD-quality sound and ease of setup.
"NuForce’s Air DAC iWireless and uWireless… strike me as very capable niche devices designed to get high-quality sound from a computer, smartphone, or tablet to an audio system with the least possible effort while still sounding good," reports Thom Moon in his GoodSound.com review for March 15, 2013. "I heartily recommend the Air DACs, especially at their prices."
CD-Quality Sound and No Dropouts
The Air DAC Wireless System is a combination wireless transmitter (uTX or iTX) and radio receiver (Air DAC) that operates in the 2.4 GHz radio band. The Air DAC Receiver utilizes a premium quality Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) stage and simple one-button SKAA control.
Unlike similar devices, the Air DAC and associated TX transmitters do not experience the typical loss in sound quality or interference capability of cell phones and other wireless devices. Rather, they offer CD-quality sound, virtually no latency, a 15-30 meter range, and a spread-spectrum technology that detects and chooses from among available frequency spectrums in order to avoid interference.
Automatically Locks Onto Your Music Signal
The NuForce Air DAC Wireless Receiver and any device fitted with an appropriate matching uTX or iTX transmitter can be combined to form a wireless audio network. Each transmitter can send audio to four Air DAC Wireless Receivers, and each receiver can connect to as many as four transmitters.

"NuForce’s Air DAC iWireless and uWireless… strike me as very capable niche devices designed to get high-quality sound from a computer, smartphone, or tablet to an audio system with the least possible effort while still sounding good. I never experienced any glitches in sound. The SKAA wireless system seemed to work flawlessly."
"I heartily recommend the Air DACs, especially at their prices. Either will provide the advantage of wireless connectivity for the cost of a simple, entry-level wired DAC. They’re the real deal."
