iFi Pro iDSD is a new for 2018 flagship dac. It also has a high quality headphone amp, can play music direct from a sd card and via wifi.
The Pro iDSD is a cutting edge dac. Some of its features are:
- The Pro iDSD uses a Quad ‘stack’ of Burr-Brown Bit-Perfect DSD and DXD DACs in a custom ‘interleaved’ configuration, which enables a total of eight pairs of differential signals to be used and mixed – that’s four pairs of signals per channel.
- All signals to the DACs are re-clocked with the low-jitter Global Master Timing® master clock derived from parent company AMR’s revered DP-777 DAC*
- Digital processing is handled by an XMOS XU216 X-Core 200 Series 16-Core processor with a maximum of 2,000 MIPS (two billion instructions per second) calculation power in dual-issue mode as a USB interface.
- All digital processing is Bit-Perfect, without employing ASRC or up-sampling unless digital filters are explicitly selected.
- All inputs (including USB) are galvanically isolated and the USB input is self-powered.
- With LINKPLAY™ Wi-Fi/network playback, built-in Spotify and Tidal, and wide protocol support for 32-Bit/192kHz and DSD64, the Pro iDSD can directly link to a router for online music playback.
Understated on the exterior but super advanced, the Pro iDSD shines wireless/wired. Having the usb input self powered allows the Pro iDSD to connect with phones and ipads, giving you even more flexibility with your source. Pro iDSD is practical too - it has a servo controlled remote volume.
Pro iDSD has a solid state output, a tube output and a tube+ ouput - designed to provide a more traditional, smoother tube sound. This provides you with fantastic flexibility to match the dac to your system / speakers over time, or as your tastes change.
