iFi NEO Desktop dac, preamp and balanced headphone amp. NEO can be used as the center of a high end stereo, desktop system with speakers and headphones, or as a high end usb or bluetooth dac. NEO has remote, with XLR and rca outs for a stereo, or to go to a bonkers headphone amp. NEO uses a Burr-Brown dac with the latest XMOS usb input, NEO fully decodes MQA files (for Tidal listening) and the adaptive bluetooth takes advantage of all the new higher res bluetooth codecs found in android phones.
Place it vertically or horizontally, its display switches orientation. The headphone output has 6.5mm and balanced 4.4mm output - with 1 watt of output, allowing NEO to drive planar headphones and higher end models to their maximum performance. Controls are slick and operation is smooth and silent.
A great match with Focal headphones, excellent with the HD660s + its balanced cable, Sendy Aiva + its 4.4 balanced cable sound great with the Neo, Lcd2 classic is another top match.
