small stuff is cool stuff.

The Tivoli iPAL might be their smallest radio but it's easily the most popular - the simplicity, portability and all round great sound of the latest iPAL models the best ever. Did you know the iPAL is the most sensitive of all the Tivoli range and is the best choice if you have patchy reception? Not only do you have the choice of 5 crisp gloss finishes for summer - yellow, red, white, blue and black - there's also the new BlueTooth PAL for great wireless sound from any source.

" Hi John, absolutely delighted with the DDA 100 performance it is a truly amazing piece of kit... Thanks again for introducing me to Nuforce and particularly the DAA 100, I am hearing instruments with a clarity that I have only heard in demonstration rooms before, with kit costing three times the price. Best regards, Roger"
Your best small speaker choices.
What is the ideal speaker to match the DDA100 with? The Monitor Audio Radius has been our best selling small speaker for years - first the original model, then the improved HD versions and now the third iteration - the look is still the same; finished in a luxurious high gloss piano black or white lacquer and it’s only on close inspection you can see the improved porting, new drivers and a subtle but significant outwards flare of the cover for the bass unit. Good as the earlier versions sounded, the latest model is considerably better again - more efficient, extended, detailed and just all together more musical.
Sonus faber wrote the book on luxury small speakers and the new Olympica 1 is simply the one of the finest speakers we have ever heard of any size or price. The long awaited replacement for the Cremona Auditor M, the Olympica 1 has just arrived and is everything you could want in a speaker. Fabulous sound and looks to die for - hand made in Italy with the finest timber, drivers and leather. You might be surprised that we’d match the little NuForce with such an opulent choice - but once you hear what this pairing does, you'll understand...
