iFi 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 its perfect for iphone or computer. iFi Gryphon is a great dac for ipad. xDSD Gryphon also has optical / coax input and line in.
iFi xDSD Gryphon tips: You can use it while it charges... For max battery longevity, turn on prior to charging and it will only charge to 70%.... Rear 'Bass' switch lets you choose the XBASS II focus - Bass focuses on deep sub bass, while 'Presence' focuses on mid-bass (like drums for rock)
