I imagine that most people probably will start with NuForce the way I did, by using the venerable, small and trustworthy uDAC 2 line. After you've made the plunge and gotten a nice set of headphones, you realize that you have been missing out on a lot of stuff in music. My journey started with a set of Sennheiser HD-600's. I think everyone knows that they are a great starting point for audiophile grade equipment. But, as with any set of big headphones, boy do they take a lot to push them.
I got the uDAC 2 based on its great reviews (and to this day over 2 years later, its been nothing short of stellar) making the decision after much consideration to take the plunge on upgrading.
What was I hoping for? Better sound sure is a vague statement. I'll elaborate. At times I felt the sound stage was not that great with the uDAC 2. The bass wasn't powerful enough in some aspects. Clear, undoubtedly, but I wanted slightly more. For the record, I am not using my setup for classical music. I actually use it for a lot of symphonic rock music with female vocals (for example, Delain or Within Temptation are good examples). I also like some of today's pop music like Lady Gaga for a fast paced sound when I need to stay awake. More aggressive choices might be listening to bands like Device or Avenged Sevenfold where I want to hear some dude shredding on a guitar, or some really powerful drums.
The ICON DAC seems to deliver on what I wanted more of. The music sounds fuller. There is a tinge more base. The sound stage appears to be greatly improved. I can undoubtedly hear more details in the sound especially during choruses which are usually more complex than other times of the songs. These are details I have tested between the two units before writing this review. There is a noticeable improvement in sound quality.
So, in the end, is it worth it? I think the price can be justified. However realize, that depending on how good your hearing is, there are definite diminishing returns to how much better sound can get. Yes, this is an upgrade over the uDAC 2, but realize there is only so much a headphone amp can do to appreciably improve the sound.
Update- got the NuForce UDAC-3. Works great, and half the price with no discernible difference in sound quality.
