Our take on the NuForce iTX Transmitter™

by Ralph Graves
Nuforce

The iTX transmitter makes your iPod, iPhone, or iPad part of your NuForce Air DAC wireless audio system. This comact device plugs into your Apple portable's docking port. The transmitter bypasses your player's digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and sends a digital signal wirelessly to a NuForce Air DAC Receiver. You'll enjoys high-fidelity sound, coupled with the freedom and ease of wireless connectivity.

Features

Overview: The NuForce iTX iPod transmitter for Air DAC allows you to stream music from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad to the NuForce Air DAC wireless DAC/receiver (773AIRDAC, sold separately) and your connected home entertainment system. The combination uses SKAA & HPX technology for a wireless audio system with Hi-Fi CD-quality sound.

iPod/iPhone/iPad Compatibility: The NuForce iTX iPod transmitter is compatible with iPod classic (80/120/160GB), iPod nano (1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th/6th gen), iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPhone (2G/3G/3GS/4/4S), and iPad (1/2). The iTX iPod transmitter features a 30-pin dock connector which plugs into the dock connector of your iPod, iPhone, or iPad. The iTX transmitter also comes with a 41" USB charging cable which allows you to charge your iPod, iPhone, or iPad while the iTX transmitter is installed.

Point-to-Point Wireless Connection: The NuForce iTX iPod transmitter can be combined with the NuForce Air DAC wireless DAC/receiver to form a point-to-point wireless audio network; no WiFi "hotspot" needed for reception. Each transmitter can send audio to up to four receivers, and each receiver can connect to as many as four transmitters.

SKAA Wireless Technology: The NuForce iTX transmitter and Air DAC wireless DAC/receiver (sold separately) are based on a new wireless technology known as SKAA. SKAA technology provides seamless operation and a consistent user interface across different SKAA devices, via 2.4GHZ wireless point-to-point transmission. Unlike similar wireless devices, the iTX transmitter and Air DAC (sold separately) do not experience the typical loss in sound quality or interference capability of cell phones and other wireless devices. Rather, the system offers CD-quality sound, virtually no latency, a 49-98' range, and a spread-spectrum technology that detects and chooses from among available frequency spectrums in order to avoid interference. Visit www.skaa.com for more detailed information.

HPX Audio Codec: SKAA wireless Technology uses the HPX audio codec from Eleven Engineering Incorporated. The HPX audio codec has several advantages resulting in uncompressed, full-audio bandwidth (20-20k), CD-quality (16bit/48kHz) sound. With HPX audio compression technology, you will be unable to tell the difference between an uncompressed, wired audio source and the NuForce iTX transmitter and Air DAC (sold separately) sending CD-quality sound across the SKAA (2.4GHZ) wireless link.

Specifications:

  • 16-bit/48kHz x 2 channels
  • SNR > 90dB A-weighted
  • Operates @ 2.4GHz
  • Latency < 13.8 ms
  • 49-98' wireless range

  • The sound quality on the NuForce iTX Transmitter was very clear. I did notice I lost some low end on my sub. The white noise was almost comparable to my cd player. I was very happy with my buy of the transmitter. [ JERRY L   Jan 22, 2014 ]
  • We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 21, 2014 ]
