    Default NuForce Icon iDo - iPod/iPad/iPhone DAC Headphone Amp

    As new condition, used for maybe 15 hours before I decided that funds for my new phono stage are more important.

    This is for iPod, iPhone, iPad only, uses USB for input ( not supplied ), so your charging lead for whatever iOS device you own will work.

    Great little DAC with Digital/RCA out that also doubles up as a headphone amp with digital volume control, can also be used direct to active speakers for a desktop system.

    These are no longer made and not easy to get hold of.

    Fully boxed and would make an ideal Xmas present as the amp still has the cellophane wrapping on it.

    135 including postage.

    If I didn't need funds I'd be keeping this and my 2m Black cartridge isn't selling so.........

    Sorry Grant I'm a Daftee !

    Don't need any adapter/ converter at all, just needs the USB lead you use for charging your iOS device DOH! I've edited that bit out

    So it should work with newer iOS devices too.

    Can you change the AVG in title to and

    Thanks

    Done that...so its the small firewire ios adaptor like iphone 5 and 6 it works on. Looks like a useful tool. 5 v olt or thereabouts is it. Just wondering if a battery bank would run it

    Might do.

    The PSU is 6.5v 2.3a if that's any help

    I used my iPad with the 30 pin to USB lead to send to the DAC, pretty sure lightning to USB do exactly the same. I can test that if you like as my daughter's iPhone is lightning compatible.

    Aye it sure is, would you not be better with a decent DAP (Digital Audio Player) and a battery pack as I know the Fiio ones can drive most headphones no problem, I know my Fiio X3 managed my Senn 650's fine. X3 doubles up as a DAC too.

    And there are better players out there than the X3, my Motorola phone beats it for sound quality and it takes a 128gb mSD card.
