The NuForce Cube is like the Swiss Army Knife of gadgets, there’s a lot going on in a really small package (that’s what she said). Besides being a solid portable speaker, the NuForce Cube is also a headphone amp and a digital-to-analog converter. So basically, you’re handling a slew of problems with one crafty little box (that’s what he said). The USB DAC lets you bypass your computer’s on-board one leaving you with superior sound, and the headphone amp is perfect for when you don’t want others hearing that sound. When you aren’t listening through a pair of Marshall Major’s, the NuForce Cube provides big sound despite its diminutive size.
