Overview: The NuForce uTX USB transmitter for Air DAC allows
you to stream music from your computer USB port to the NuForce Air DAC wireless
sold separately) and your connected home entertainment system. The combination
uses SKAA & HPX technology for a wireless audio system with Hi-Fi CD-quality
Windows/Mac Compatibility: The NuForce uTX USB transmitter is compatible with both Windows and Mac
computers with a USB (type-A) port, so there's no need to install drivers. The
uTX transmitter features a male USB (type-A) connector which plugs into your
computer's female USB (type-A) port.
Point-to-Point Wireless Connection: The NuForce uTX USB
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 uTX 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 uTX 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

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 uTX transmitter and Air DAC (sold separately) sending CD-quality sound
across the SKAA (2.4GHZ) wireless link.
