  • Source selector allows you to choose the device you wish to listen to
  • Acts as a high-performance headphone amplifier
  • Can be used to drive tweeters or rear-channel speakers in a surround-sound setup

Awesome time…Smarthome.com is now carrying Nuforce products. Those in the know have probably heard of that name and if you haven’t chances are pretty good that a quick Google search on Nuforce products will get you equally as excited as I am right now. So what is it about this particular Nuforce product that is so awesome? Well for starters it introduces analog back in to the mix. Essentially it takes your computer’s digital signal and converts it over to Analog sound. Digital is great, something we’ve all come to love (after all it is 2012) however, there is just something about analog sound that makes music and movies come to life! The NF-ICON2 in lovely blue, is a USB Digital Analog Converter (DAC). It can convert your les than spectacular sound into a cleaner more high-end 24-bit signal. It can operate as a high performance headphone amplifier or can even be used to help drive some tweeters or a rear-channel in your home audio’s surround sound system. To be honest, the best thing to do is to visit the product page. If I continue to write about how awesome this thing is, I’d be here forever. Go here: Read More

Mini Digital/Analog Converter Makes Your Audio Listening Experience Better

Product Title (In box)

Upgrade the Sound of Your Digital Music Stored on Your Computer:

Improving the sound quality of your listening experience can be an important thing for most people, especially if their using headphones as a means to entertain their ears. Not all notebooks and desktop computers come with a great soundcard, as usually the on-board integrated audio experience can lack luster leaving you wanting more. HiFiMAN has decided it’s time for that to change. Enter the HM-101, a USB Digital/Analog Converter (DAC) that takes the music stored on your notebook or desktop computer and reconverts it into an experience worth listening to. The HM-101 is extremely tiny (seriously, look at how small it is) and yet manages to do an amazing job at making your audio sound huge whether you’re using headphones, or are sending the signal to an amplifer or a set of speakers. One of the best features is that it utilizes USB and requires no battery, quickly making this external soundcard a more than valuable replacement for that pathetic integrated/onboard audio card you’ve been dealing with.

More information continues below:

The majority of computers today have decent on-board sound cards, however they provide a very lean and metallic sound. Perhaps this sound may work for some people but definitely not everyone. For those people who listen to music from their computer or laptop and demand a higher quality sound, replacing the sound card can be a quite an ordeal to replace and even then you may not achieve the sound that you are looking for. The HM-101 Sound Card by HiFiMan is an external USB sound card and a Digital Analog Converter (DAC). A DAC is a device that converts a digital, compressed music file and converts it to an analog signal. The DAC takes the digital output of a compatible audio player and converts the signal into an analog line-level output that can be fed into an amplifier to drive speakers.

The HM-101 is approximately half the size of a standard business card and does not require any batteries or charging. By simply plugging in the HM-101 into a USB drive, you will hear a noticeably cleaner, warmer, and fuller sounding audio. This unit is the perfect solution to making cheaper headphones sound better. If you’re in need of a simple, portable, no-frills audio solution to greatly improve the quality of your digital music- look no further. Read More

  • Compact and portable

Power of the Sun Charges Your Power-Hungry Devices

Product Title (In box)

Versatile Charger Protects You from Being Stuck with a Dead Cell Phone Battery:

Dead mobile device got you down? Well perk up as the Sun is here to quench the thirst of your power-dehydrated mobile device. Hopefully some day human beings will obtain the ability to develop infinite energy (along with time travel), but until that day arrives we will have to rely on our big warm friend up in the sky for its glorious rays of sunshine. Keystone ECO knows this, so to take advantage of the Sun’s hospitality, they’ve developed the SC1500-001 Solar and USB Power PAK Charger. Simply put, the solar panel absorbs sunlight charging the built-in 15000mAh Lithium-Polymer battery which will then distribute its own life to your mobile device. Isn’t that nice? It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and comes with an assortment of adapters so you can be sure it can cover all your devices’ unique power-plug inserts. It also features an onboard battery check button and LED status light, as well as an integrated USB flip key so you can also charge via USB if the Sun doesn’t feel like showing itself on that day.

Here’s more lowdown on this modern day marvel:

If you’ve ever found yourself stuck with a dead cell phone battery and without a way to charge it in the foreseeable future then the Solar and USB Power PAK Charger from Keystone ECO is here to save the day. Most modern day handheld electronics have amazing features and capabilities but the downfall of all the increased technology in each device has been the fact that using it drains the battery quickly. Having a backup power source to recharge all of these devices now-a-days is a must especially for those always on the move who live on their handheld electronics. This Solar and USB Charger is roughly the size of Smartphone so it will easily fit in a pocket or purse while on the go. It can be charged either by exposing the solar panel to the sun or via USB port. To fully charge the Power PAK using only the sun will take roughly 5-6 hours making it ideal for strapping to a backpack while hiking or for a quicker charge full power can be reached in 3-4 hours via USB. The Power PAK Charger offers great peace of mind that you won’t be stuck with a dead phone because it can be pre-charged and stored in a convenient spot until needed. The charger is Apple certified to work with an iPod and iPhone and comes with a total of 5 connector tips allowing it to work with many more devices. It has a rated input and output of 5.0V, 600mA Max and battery capacity of 1500mAh. Read More
