Gee whiz, this is a whole lot of high end audio crammed into one beautiful desktop unit. Our pals at iFi didn't just create a reference DAC and call it a day...they built a box that works beautifully as a preamp, network streamer, and both solid-state and tube headphone amplifier. We've been using it in our office for months now and continue to be impressed with its performance and capabilities day in and day out. This is an endgame DAC and then some. If you really want to go all out, pair it with the Pro iCAN and get ready to have your face melted off.
There’s no wrong way to enjoy your music as long as you’re enjoying it, so we’ve created the Pro iDSD reference grade DAC and amp combo to be the centerpiece for whatever strikes your mood. When convenience matters, stream from your favorite services like Spotify, Tidal, and Qobuz over WiFi for up to 24 bit / 192 kHz high resolution streaming audio.
For the ultimate in hi res audio connect your PC, laptop, tablet, digital audio player, Android, or iPhone (with Apple Camera Connection Kit, not included) to the high speed USB 3.0 input for native playback of all formats, including FLAC, WAV, PCM, DSD and even MQA decoding. The micro SD TF card slot and USB A inputs let you connect your external library, and you can run a network usb drive through the built-in ethernet port. Dust off your CD collection and plug in your DVD player via the SPDIF optical toslink jack to rediscover old classics.
On the back, RCA jacks and a balanced 3 pin XLR output connection work directly with your home audio amplifier or receiver allowing the Pro iDSD to function as the preamplifier for your home audio. When speaker listening isn’t an option, the built-in headphone amplifier will drive your favorite pair of headphones with ease as you listen to your favorite beats. Choose a filter from one of five options or apply DSD Remastering to dial in the perfect sound signature, and switch between solid audio amplifier or tube audio amplifier on the fly for just the right amount of warmth. No matter the way you listen, this is the only digital audio converter you need for your home.
