Our Take The first thing that came to mind when we first started testing the Micro iDSD Black Label was, "how is this thing only six hundred bucks?" This thing could easily sell for a thousand and still be considered a great value given its capabilities and sound quality.
From iFi Audio The micro iDSD BL is a portable DAC and headphone amp intended for use at home, in the office, in a professional system, casual settings, or on the go. It features a specially selected Burr Brown chipset in a Dual Core configuration with PCM384, DSD256 and MQA, or playback up to DSD512 and double speed DXD 705.6/768kHz with a quick complimentary firmware update. With customizable features, turned on/off with the flick of a switch, 3D+, X Bass+, iEMatch, positive or negative polarity, power mode, filter, and direct/preamp, the micro BL handles ultra sensitive In Ear Monitors as well as demanding Over Ear headphones, or speakers with ease.
Designed with a femto clock system and a digital engine using custom OV2028 and OV2627 op amps. The analogue section benefits from OS CONs and Panasonic ECPU capacitors. Inputs include digital high speed asynchronous USB 2.0 A male (32bit/768khz), SPDIF Coaxial + Optical, and 3.5mm line in while featuring a digital coax output, 6.3mm jack (1/4 inch adapter included) and RCA line out (2V fixed, 2V-5V variable).
