    Will post you review here? I think a lot of headfiers would enjoy the read and the sound comparisons of Pro iESL with all of those headphones. I also have the iDSD BL and find it an incredible piece of gear as well.i must admit I wasn't familiar with iFi until I joined Head-Fi. Now I'm a fan for life. I can't wait until the Pro iDSD gets released so I can complete my Pro Series stack.

    Given ifi's reputation and previous releases, it is safe to say that it will be an amazing product, you just need to be patient.

    It was a joke. I've used ifi's products before and had no complaints.

    Not really understanding your optimism. :relaxed:

    Seriously, iFi has given no indication that the iDSD Pro will be out next year.

    And no indication what so ever this year too. They have promised September, and we are now going to October.

    Up to this time they say they are tweaking it?

    I say they have been cornered with current DAC offerings.

    Sorry, moving on with other offerings...

    What ever their problem is, I bet it's due to the small form factor. I think iFi shot themselves in the foot with the form factor. DAC needs clean power supply and the small enclosure they chosen may not be big enough for the implementation to get their desired quality.

    Just as a fyi, I don't mind external power supply chassis, we can do a 2x2 stack of Pro iCan and iESL on top of a 2 chassis iDSD. Maybe make this PS chassis power the iCan and iESL as well with higher quality power compared to the stock one.

    Jyst saying...

    I think the delay must be due to implimenting MQA in the Pro. iFi has committed to the format with their recent announcement of the Nano iDSD Black Label. There’s no way their flagship DAC would be missing a key feature offered by a lesser model...

    Makes perfect sense. Meanwhile, for those looking for an iFi "fix", there's a new USB driver up on their website.

    Dear all

    Many thanks for your interest regarding the iDSD Pro.

    We have now released the hardware for Pre-Production. The software is still "under construction". There are still some things we prefer to divulge once confirmed but suffice to say, we have squeezed in pretty much most of the ‘feature creep’ aspects and we will announce these when our R&D chaps give us the ok.

    Thank you all for your patience - we appreciate it.

    Best wishes

    Dear iFi team,

    I see your company is listed among the companies participating to the following event:
    Rotterdam on October 7th, 2017

    I would like to tell you that I would be very happy to be able to listen to the pre-production iDSD Pro unit at this event. Would it be possible to know whether you will bring it?

    Thank you
