NuForce Icon System, Shanling PCD3000A CD Player Reviews on 6moons

Friday, September 5, 2008

6moons published a review of the NuForce Icon system. The Nuforce Icon system is designed primarily for desktop use. It consists of the S-1 speakers ($249/pair), NE-7 headphones ($99), and Icon integrated amp ($249).

Regarding the NuForce Icon system, Srajan Ebaen notes:

Actually, the S-1 is very Lowther-ish in speed and openness. That part of the equation is no marketing hooey. It’s sealed-box impulse-correct fact. Add the wall, don’t apply certain bass expectations or material and for the money asked, the midrange and lower treble are silly good indeed. I simply need more reach into the bass (forget low bass, that’s off the menu in this entire discussion) to consider the NuForce mini speaker viable as marketed – solo, without auxiliary woofer/s.

The web site also published a review of the Shanling PCD3000A CD player (CDN$599), which includes a headphone amp.
