I think if iMini had two headphone jacks, that would be great. One 6.3mm for serious headphones, 60 ohm-600 ohm ones. Another for 8 ohm-60 ohm iems and headphones such as Sennheiser Momentum, Focal Spirit Classic, Sony MDR1 etc... It would be the best of both worlds.

And a third for balanced ......

three headphone outputs on the mini might not look that great. how about a switch in the back to change the gain on the SE output? but definitely yes on the balanced (4 pin) headphone jack

Another vote for 4-pin XLR headphone jack(female) on front as well for a pair of line 3-pin XLR outputs on back.

Hi all,

 

Have relayed your comments onto Thorsten and team.

 

This is turning into another Crowd-Design project and we haven't finished the micro iDSD yet!

 

You guys are working us hard!  :atsmile:

 

Keep 'em coming!

Another idea for the mini iDSD is to add a USB port for local playback and music storage. Along with the DLNA capabilities the USB port should be able to support a wireless adapter that  supports a remote NAS device.

 

Again another idea is to have a Ipad, smart phones to control the mini iDSD with the remote colorful display graphics of all your music albums. For example my Onkyo TX-8050 which does not have a color graphics display on it. I use J.River to connect to the TX-8050 with the Ethernet port on DLNA and then use any remote computer on my home network or smart device using the remote J.River Gimzo feature to access my remote music library for playback on the  TX-8050 or the mini iDSD in this case.

The mini series is Euro1,000 level. The mini iCAN will be serious monster of an amp that will run with the uber headamps.

 

This is the remit of the whole mini series - iDSD, iCAN and iTUBE and iXXXX.

that makes more sense. that's a crowded space, though. lots of DAC/amp combos in the $1000 (or 1.000 euro) arena. good for we consumers, though...everyone has to up the ante and everyone will bring their best. looking forward to seeing what iFi has up its sleeve for the iDSD.

 

so is it the case then that the iDSD will be the DAC for the mini series? no mini iDAC?

The micro iDAC only plays PCM au naturel. That came two years ago.

 

The nano iDSD which came at the end of last year, it plays DSD/PCM/DXD au naturel.

 

So the mini iDAC doesnt make sense due to the overlap.

Another feature request for the mini iDSD is internet radio!

Latest Update: 29th April

We have developed some exclusive attenuators for iFi customers who use very high-sensitivity IEMs with the nano iCAN, nano iDSD and micro iCAN. There are two versions: -12dB and -24dB.


 



 

We are running a competition for the next 10 days (close: Saturday 10th May GMT: 21.00).


 

Should you accept this mission, your objective is simple.


 

i. Think of a name/names instead of "attenuator"


 

ii. Post your suggestion/s in this thread


 

iii. The top 3 most-liked names - chosen by the iFi senior team of Thorsten et al will win:


 

#1 micro iCAN (rrp Euro259) (Ranked Number 1 headphone amp on Head-Fi!)

#2 nano iCAN (rrp Euro169)

#3 nano iCAN (rrp Euro169)


 

Best of luck to all of you!


 

Any questions, just ask away.
