Does the iFi iDSD Mini also come with a battery supply ?

 

I hope I do not come across as rude, just a consumer trying to find out more about iFi iDSD Mini (You have got competition within your products)

 

Hi,

 

The Mini iDSD is still at the prototype stage. The prototype has wall power supply only. It is still quite some months off. We are talking end 2014/early 2015. That one is 100% home-based.

 

Not rude at all. Keep on asking...:smile:

hi ifi guys,

there is a challenge for you this time, besides the whole thing of creating the micro iDSD of course:

what about some kind of group photo with all the people who where involved ! with a left to right of who did what. would be a nice way to put all those hardworking people center stage for a big applause

but no pressure, just an idea

You really have got your cables in a tangle haven't you biggrin.gif

A socket > B socket is the adaptor methinks.

The cable would then be A socket > A plug.

Aw shucks.

 

On the to do list!

 

But for the time being, we'll let the products do the talking. :D

 

Really appreciate it that you think of us!

 

iFi Team.

I have almost decided that I will go mobile with an iCAN nano (don't have otg phone - and don't really care about that!).
For my home setup, I still don't know. I really hope I will manage to arrange a listening session with Italian dealer.

HiFi HE-6 takes on the Meaty Monster

 

We have received a few emails from customers who politely queried whether or not the HiFi Man HE-6 can truly partner with the micro iDSD.

 

And rightly so.

 

The HE-6 is one heck of a hungry headphone to drive - it is the most difficult current production headphone out there (the AKG K1000 tops it).

 

At the outset, we can say that if you wish to drive it to real ear-damaging levels, then no, the micro iDSD will not do that.

 

But, (in Turbo mode of course) able to drive it LOUD to sensible/usable levels, the micro iDSD is certainly very capable.

 

You wanna check it out?

 

 

This short video clip was made by Linda, a concierge from the iClub.

 

The iPhone is recording the sound FROM the HE-6, the music is NOT the backing track for the video. :D

 

Enjoy!

 

ps: The track is "Dont Stop the Party" by Pitbull featuring TJR.
