The red one looks far more convenient with USB-C charging port not on the side of the amp, it's necessary if we want to travel with such amp.
I am also wondering if there is an input 4.4mm as it looks like there are 2x4.4mm plugs ?

On the site linked to a couple of pages ago, it listed a 4.4mm to dual 3-pin XLR cable included for DAC output.

I had a leftover pelican case with pick-and-pluck foam that I converted into a carrying case for the iDSD Signature. I did the cutout quick and dirty, as it was easy to do. I doubt I'll travel much with the Signature, but the case is a good way to store it when not in use.


That's excellent :)

On the same site it mentions that the unit is MQA decoder.

micro iDSD Signature is a MQA renderer. Only our Pro iDSD and NEO iDSD can fully decode MQA.

I did own a hip-dac in the past, really good value for the money. The Signature is just a different league.

Guys, any examples of not very hard to drive planar-magnetic headphones (open and closed back) which perform good with the Signature? I had a combination of Aeon C Flow + micro idsd black label in the past, that was a really nice pair. Thanks.

I enjoyed my LCD-3 (Non-Fazor) with the Hip-Dac.

Hey folks how would you describe the signature tuning wise? is it a warm sound? or its more on the natural neutra side and more reference? I had back then the idsd black and had it paired with hd800s but that is very long time ago.... So wonder if the signature got a little warmer?

If my memory serves me right it is even more neutral than the original black label. I like it even better.
