iFi Audio xDSD Gryphon review:  *9/10 @ Headfonics.com the xDSD Gryphon is an almost, almost perfect portable solution that can go beyond its duty by also functioning as separate components. The excellent sound quality is just the cherry on top.

Tailor the sound with the XBass II and/or XSpace, bass and soundstage adjustments, all analogue, easily selected with front mount buttons. A bright OLED display shows gain level, bitrate, volume, battery and more - in use, its great to have. A usb charge cable, usb-c and lightning cable are included, so you have the option of connecting wired to almost any modern portable source.  xDSD Gryphon also have optical input and line in.

**It is as slim as the older xdsd units, but wider and deeper.
