We may live in a digital world, but analog still rules the roost when it comes to audio, and a dedicated DAC can improve the quality of your tunes considerably. Back at CES, we teased you with NuForce's Air DAC that wirelessly streams music from mobile to your home stereo on the 2.4GHz band at a range of 30-65 feet (10-20 meters). Well, it's been priced and is now officially available. For those with Apple devices, the 30-pin iTX dongle will set you back $79, and those keeping their music elsewhere can grab the uTX USB transmitter for $59. On its own, the DAC receiver costs $149, though the whole iOS-compatible kit can be had for $199, while the USB version's yours for $179. PR's after the break.

NuForce Announces its Air DAC Wireless System for High Quality Audio Streaming
The NuForce Air DAC System features SKAA technology and allows users to cut the cord and wirelessly stream CD-quality music from a computer and mobile devices
Milpitas, Calif. – February 23, 2012– NuForce, Inc., a leader in professional and consumer audio solutions, today announces the release of its Air DAC Wireless System for personal audio streaming. The NuForce Air DAC system gives users the ability to wirelessly transmit their music from a computer without latency and interference, while preserving CD-quality sound.
The Air DAC wireless system is a combination wireless transmitter (NuForce iTX for Apple devices or uTX for computer USB) and a radio receiver (Air DAC) that operates in the 2.4GHz radio band. The NuForce Air DAC wireless receiver and any device outfitted with an appropriate matching TX transmitter can be combined to form a wireless audio network.
The NuForce wireless transmitter and receiver set not only permits users to get exceptional wireless sound, it also allows users to send it to multiple devices in just about any room in the house. Each transmitter can send audio to four receivers, and each receiver can connect to as many as four transmitters.
Setup doesn't require WiFi routers or IP addresses, making setup a hassle-free experience. Just plug in the appropriate wireless transmitter into and link the device wirelessly to multiple amplifier/speaker systems located throughout your home. Then simply walk into any room with your portable player and the system automatically locks on to its signal and streams the music to the speakers in that space. Move to the next room and stream music from the same device to that room's receiver. Wherever you roam in your home or office, your music is with you. (iTX for Apple devices will be available in the near future)
"We wanted a robust, high quality, easy to use wireless audio streaming solution," said Jason Lim, CEO of NuForce. "The NuForce Air DAC wireless system is the perfect solution for any home or office."
