The iDAC2 is a totally new design that has drawn upon the widespread praise garnered by the nano iDSD and micro iDSD. This state of the art DAC / headphone amplifier is perfect for home, desktop or portable use. Featuring an all new Burr Brown chipset, the iDAC2 handles the very latest formats.
The iFi Type B iPurifier2 is an inline USB signal purifier featuring trickle-down technology from Abbingdon Music Research (AMR), that will clean up the USB audio transmission chain. The USB audio platform is well-established, yet as with any audio transmission protocol, unwanted factors hinder the audio quality. iFi’s obsession with ‘cleaning up’ the USB audio chain drawn from the knowledge base of AMR. As early as 2012, iFi invented the first USB power regenerator – the iUSB Power. This was swiftly followed by professional USB audio cables – the Mercury and Gemini. Later came the USB audio filter – the original iPurifier. Fast-forward to 2015 and we now have the iPurifier 2.

The SPDIF iPurifier is partly a nod to past SPDIF devices including the Genesis Digital Lense. With the very latest AMR/iFI technology, it is suited to the gamut of SPDIF sources that are on the market today. It takes any barely recognisable ‘square wave’ and with REclock˚/REgenerate˚ the signal is back to a real-world, perfect wave form. From Apple TV to Google Chromecast to PS4/Xbox to 4K Smart TVs, SPDIF is the main digital audio output. As with all mainstream products, the critical SPDIF signal transmitted is of fairly low quality. The SPDIF iPurifier runs the SPDIF signal through 4 comprehensive stages, and the result is a fully-restored, perfect SPDIF with jitter eliminated. The result is sound quality that has greater warmth, resolution and dynamic contrast.
The iFi DC iPurifier is an inline DC Power purifier featuring trickle-down technology from Abbingdon Music Research (AMR), a noise-cancellation product aimed to enhance the existing, ubiquitous Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS). Generic SMPS designs are very noisy because they were never intended for audiophile applications. The DC iPurifier sits in-between the SMPS and the device such as; router, DAC, set top box, media streamer, laptop or desk mixer. And with the latest Active Noise Cancellation® technology, from 5 volts all the way up to 24 volts (up to 3.5 amps) the DC iPurifier sharply reduces noise to improve the quality of the device.
There is nothing like the micro iDSD. It is literally, out of this world. It is the only DAC in the world (at any price) to play True Native Octa-DSD512/PCM768/Double DXD. Its Perfect-Match means it can be fine-tuned to any headgear from IEMs all the way through to large headphones. Its 8v/4000mW output makes it one of the most powerful headamps to drive even the most hungry of headphones with ease.
The iFi iSilencer is an inline USB 3.0 signal purifier featuring the very latest AMR/iFI technology, the most direct and simple upgrade for any USB port. Lowering noise/RFI/EMI by up to 40dB or 100x, it is ideal for the home and on-the-go improvement of all devices connected to the USB port, e.g. Computer Servers, Mixers, Hard drives etc. Regardless of the system; at any price level, the iSilencer3.0® terminates noise, in its tracks.
The iCAN – Special Edition is a ‘specially-tuned’ version of the top-selling micro iCAN. Sonically, it boasts Class A, DirectDrive® and TubeState®. Features wise, it features a newly-refined XBass®, 3D Holographic® for headphones and 0dB, 12dB and 24dB Gain adjustment. Powered by the all-new iPower (15V), the special Turbo headamp® circuit pumps out 4,000mW to drive even the most demanding of headphones.
The iLINK is the ultimate USB to SPDIF converter. Rather than start with the converter chip, we went beyond and analysed the whole transmission and conversion process. Only by doing this fundamental ground-work could we overcome inherent sonic deficiencies seen in mainstream converters. When a digital signal is converted from one format to another, jitter ensues on numerous fronts. To tackle jitter and related undesirable issues which add up to negatively impact the overall sonic picture. The iLINK is the only converter of its kind with advanced technology not seen in any other converter; Super Digital Output® and Jitter Elimination Technology JET®.
Since its introduction in 2012, the original micro iUSB changed what was considered attainable from computer audio by supplying regenerated USB power. The recently launched flagship micro iUSB3.0 aimed at top-tier dacs (+$5000), is another leap for computer audio. The all-new nano iUSB3.0 is the ‘Baby Bentley’ of the flagship micro iUSB3.0. For $500 to $5000 dacs, it retains the lion’s share of the micro iUSB3.0’s features – USB3.0 chipset at the heart, IsoPort®, Active Noise Cancellation®, REgenerate/REclock/REbalance® and more.
The nano iDSD Light Edition (LE) is newest entry-level DAC from iFi audio. The iDSD LE has the same DNA as the multi-award winning nano iDSD but without the SPDIF output, digital filter selection and runs on DSD128/PCM384. This ‘pocket rocket’ comes in at the entry level with a pedigree that offers the same sonic performance as its sibling. Its scares the living daylights out of other entry level DACs and many other more expensive DACs too.ents.
The iFi nano iCAN is the battery-powered, half-sized version of the multiple-award winning micro series. For many, enjoying music requires the component to excel in both a ‘static’ high-end system as well as a ‘dynamic’ portable system. The nano iCAN fits this bill perfectly. Able to take RCA or 3.5mm inputs, running on lithium-polymer battery power, enjoy music wherever, whenever, whatever. The nano iCAN maintains the iFi tradition of excellent sonics with canyon-deep bass. Its supreme circuit design uses DirectDrive® technology; without the need for output capacitors.
The iFi micro iDSD Black Label is the newest iFi micro flagship product. At the heart, beats the Burr-Brown DSD512/PCM768/2xDXD True Native DAC with headphone amplifier. The Black Label looks very good on the outside yet the inside is even better where relentless attention has been paid to advancing the sonics with the very latest components.
In order to improve upon the sector-defining original iPhono, whilst keeping in essence the same design philosophy, our design team went back to the beginning and designed a ground-up, new iPhono2. The design, circuitry, the parts, the specifications and most important of all, the sonic performance meant the end justified the means.
