iFi iUSB reached Earmass! I have received this review unit of iFi iUSB from Vince few weeks back, and I used it extensively with my rigs. It is indeed a sin for me to enjoy the iUSB so much but delayed the review for so long, in fact, I intentionally delayed this review because lately I have bunch of DAC and Amp arrive at Earmass, so I think this is a good chance for me to truly test the iUSB, after some extensive use, I can say I am positive with what iUSB have achieved in sound.

iFi iUSB Power Reviews
Pros: Great audible result, especially for the money.
Cons: None what-so-ever
I power it from Van der Graaf from M2Tech, use it together with iFis dual USB cable and iFis purifier, which then plugged in to M2Tech Young DSD. Might be an overkill, but for the price that this setup gives its very good value. Tested my setup without the iUSB, and indeed could hear the result, very interesting product. Our PCs/Macs are very dirty in power outputs, due to fans etc etc. This this is very good in eliminating those. Total recommend.
Pros: Huge leap when it comes to smoother and cleaner sound
Cons: nothing what so ever!!! price? nah it was worth it 100%
My setup before: My setup used to be Magic Tube D1 and HD650 which is a really good high end set up <3. The only problem was that the HD650 have open dynamic drivers!
