    Just want to ask about the nano idsd black label. Is the MQA a hardware decode like the explorer 2 or like the Dragonfly Red which is just a software decode? :)

    How long it will take that German iFi dealers get the nano iDSD BL? I also miss the new Ear Buddy is there a special reason why no dealer has them in stock in our country?

    Hello,
    I recently purchased an iFi Nano LE. I'm looking for a short USB 3.0 cable that would work with it. Ideally, 10cm long only - and the B type male is angled. I found a few online but they're usually 50cm long, which isn't ideal for stacking. I'm using the iFi Nano LE with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Any leads? Thanks.

    How close is the sound between the micro and the nano? Anyone have both and would compare?

    You just need to get a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 B type to USB-A type adaptor + a regular 10cm short USB OTG cable, it will be like my soluton:

    I posted it already here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/ifi...ssion-impression.683406/page-98#post-11963733

    My nano iDSD BL is finally shipped. I guess in the next few days I will get the parcel. :) Have nano iDSD (original not LE) and micro iDSD (original not BL), but mainly I will compare to Chord Mojo and LH Labs GeekOut V2+ for it's form factor. Cheers

    So apparently USB 2.0 works. Thank you for responding. I will look into this.

    You might also want to inform your local iFi representative/distributor that you need such an item. If there will be interest big enough, we might introduce something extra short and USB3.0 compliant.

    Would LOVE a nice short USB-C OTG cable from you guys. Currently using the OnePlus cable, but it isn't great quality.

    Rest assured that we hear you and look into cable related things, yet can't promise anything yet.

    @iFi audio , is there a known issue with the nano BL and USB-C connections? I've started my review but every now and then the nano BL simply stops outputting/receiving any sound. I'm connecting it to my Shanling M2s, and have no such issue with my micro BL. Doing a restart on the M2s doesn't solve the issue, only performing a restart on the nano BL does.

    I'm using the nano iDSD BL with my Shanling M1 which has same USB Audio function over USB-C output like the M2s does and I have zero glichtes.

    I have read ( https://www.head-fi.org/threads/ifi...-details-page-12.864211/page-19#post-13854671 ) some units with pre-installed firmware 5.3D have a few issues, but using latest firmware you can geht by iFi support page 5.3C it's working fine: https://ifi-audio.com/nano-idsd-bl-xmos-firmware/ so maybe you check first which firmware your unit is running on.


    Btw. first impressions, very good. Power wise almost like original micro iDSD at normal mode gain, I'm using fully balanced TRRS wiring for all my headphones and CIEMs.
