Getting the kind of audio quality you want from a computer can be trying, especially if you're dealing with a laptop that lacks the ability to add a sound card.  The latest products from NuForce aim to remedy that, and at a price of entry that most consumers can afford.

"As a leader in the high-end audiophile market," says CEO Jason Lim, "we want to take the lead in offering high performance audio for portable and desktop market. And we will make it affordable."

The NuForce Icon uDAC-2 is a USB powered digital to analog converter aimed at users that need more out of their computer's audio.  It uses a linear TOCOS volume control and features a 24bit/96kHz DAC and a headphone amp that's an improvement over that of the original uDAC.  You can pick this up now for $129.

The Icon-2 offers the same 24bit/96kHz DAC and improved headphone amplifier, but also includes a preamp circuit and 24Wx2 power.  You can snag this one for $349 when it hits on August 16th.
