    ifi Audio 4.4 to 4.4 cable

    Yes, yes, I know, it doesn’t seem worth it to listen for changes with a tiny little interconnect cable, but bear with me. I mean it is not unusual to discuss or review these in a main system, so… Towards the end of last year, I changed my home office system from a desktop based one to a...

    Yes it is a headphone amp only.

    Great review and I am saddened I did not read this sooner. I know this is a headphone community and all but the Solaris has the capacity to drive speakers and so I wondered what if any yu had used and what results you had?

    Sorry, not sure what to recommend for the best. Why not try contacting ifi Audio directly and see if they can help you?

    Hi Mate, Sorry I cannot tell you anything about gaming as I don't do any. Having said that it will almost certainly be better than the amp in your laptop and so should give you better SQ but I cannot say how it will affect the soundstage specifically. Again I am not able to say how it will...

    Balanced cables can work well with some headphones and less so with others is my experience. HD800 not such a big change but yet HD800S a significant change.....go figure.

    Review by 'dadracer2' on item 'iFi audio ZEN CAN'

    In an effort to do the right thing I have made an attempt to recreate the ifi Audio Zen Can web page on my own desktop with my own Audio Technica ATH MSR7b headphones. You can see the proper image here https://ifi-audio.com/products/zen-can/ alongwith a whole lot of technical details regarding...

    Reply to review by 'dadracer2' on item 'iFi audio Pro iDSD - Standalone. Streamer. DacAmp'

    Lately I have been battling with the Pro iDSD to play with Tidal MQA (Masters) content. It seems that the Muzo app will not work with Tidal MQA at all and so it is necessary to use the M Connect app instead. I am trying to make it work but my iPhone wants to connect to M Connect via Airplay and...

    Nice review but I wondered if you used any hires files during your testing? I think that Lindemann products seem to like working with DSD files but I couldn't tell if you had used any or not.I note that you didn't like the control app when using Android and so what did you compare that to?

    Actually just yesterday the XLR to 4.4mm adapter plug I had ordered arrived. So I tried out the Pro iDSD with the AT MSR7b single ended and balanced and then finally the HD800S again both single ended and balanced. The ATs sounded improved with a slightly stronger bass and a more focused stereo...

    ifi Audio Nano iGalvanic 3.0

    This will be kind of a 2 part review as I tried out the ifi Audio iGalvanic 3.0 in 2 different systems. I received this on loan from the very kind ifi Audio folks but I don’t have any connection with them financial or otherwise. You can read a large amount of information about the iGalvanic 3.0...

    Thanks for a great review. I got an N5ii a month or so back after a long battle over whether to go DAP or iPhone plus DAC/Amp. The Cayin won out as my phone couldn't store very many albums in hi res.

    Review by 'dadracer2' on item 'iFi audio nano iDSD Black Label'

    There is a very good reason why I took a photo of the Nano Black is sitting atop my existing ifi Audio “Stack” which consists of Micro iDSD; Micro iCAN SE; iUSB; Gemini cable; Mercury cable and iPurifier2. The reason is that unexpectedly I spent a lot of time and effort comparing these and...
