NuPrime IDA-8 Integrated Amplifier w/DAC



Ultra Low Noise Class A+D Integrated Amplifier with DAC and Wireless Port

NuPrime’s new Class A+D hybrid amplification technologies deliver the substance and warmth of Class A amplification and the efficiency and speed of Class D technology in a milieu of un-measurable noise. The IDA-8’s spacious, transparent, dynamic and luxuriously textured soundstage has to be heard to be believed. The NuPrime IDA-8 consists of an ultra-low-noise integrated amplifier and digital-to-analog converter that decodes USB PCM 384 and DSD 256 with the convenience of wireless audio in a small, handsomely designed home stereo component.


– Ultra-Linear Class A Module (ULCAM) achieves audiophile-quality sound with Class-D’s dynamics, speed and efficiency. Extraordinary result of THD+N lower than 0.0015% and S/N ratio of -130dB for the preamp stage.
– NuPrime SRC IC chip provides FPGA processing with ultra-low jitter and distortion
– NuPrime vibration-free isolation feet (patent pending*)
– State-of-the-art DAC supporting USB PCM 384 and DSD256, that is also capable of decoding DoP formats via coaxial and optical inputs
– Analog line-out (can be used as Sub Out), volume controlled
– Extension port for Bluetooth dongle (included) or optional Wi-Fi receiver (WR-100 or compatible D-Stream products). This is proprietary port that provides S/PDIF signals and 5V power.
– Full microprocessor control with memory retention
– Four digital inputs and one stereo input for complete system flexibility
– Supports DSD native playback by ASIO2.1 and DoP method
– Ultra-low-noise JFETs in the input stage for the lowest possible noise floor
– Volume adjustment in 99 precise 0.5dB increments
– Advanced, thin-film switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume, with a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting
– Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise level matching of sources
– Exclusive driver software for Windows
– Standard driver software for Mac
– Asynchronous transfer mode
– Very low power consumption on Standby Mode
– Available in black or silver anodized aluminum finish
– Includes remote control
