I just got to know about the iFi Audio iDSD a few days ago.
Reading on, it's a DAC with a Battery. And does PCM, DSD, and DXD. Portable High Resolution System using my iDevices (iPhone5, iPad Mini)
I phones our local audio shop to check on the details and if they had one I can demo. They said yes and this evening I went.
iPhone5 with Onkyo HF Player > Camera Connection Kit > iDSD > Audio RCA to RSA Balanced cable> Intruder (balanced-in) > CUSTOM 20awg Pure Silver 7NUPOCC cable (balanced-out) > Audeze LCD-XC. Format: DSD. Sample Rate 5.64MHz.
Did the very brief Audition. Caught myself Smiling to myself like a fool. Paid 2 bills and took the iDSD home.
At home, unplugged the iPhone. Connected the Rig to my Desktop with the Media Center 19. Format: DSD Sample Rate 352.8KHz/64bit
Well for this coming week my Conductor finally takes a Break from Desktop Duties. The Intruder will have to do 2 shifts: Portable Rig - Daytime & Desktop Rig - Evenings.
Got 2 Intruders. My first Intruder #20, sent to RSA for a DAC upgrade. Thanks Ray!
