    Any hints on the iDSD Pro having MQA capability? - Asking for a Tidal user.

    Any ideas on release quarter? Been waiting using the micro idsd bl as my dac, but i take it to and from work/travel and can't wait for the iDSD pro to pair with the amp so i am not reconnecting my home system every day. Thinking of investing in a dac this christmas time, but if the iDSD pro is coming early next year, i will wait.

    We look very seriously into this subject, yes.

    Nothing specific yet. But it's coming.

    So is Jesus, but I'm not waiting up nights (Sorry, stole that from Doonesbury, lol).

    Was considering getting this, as I love my Micro iDSD BL and wanted a balanced DAC to go with my Mjolnir. But with all the delays, lack of concrete info concerning ETA, and my concerns about pricing, I might just go with the Oppo UDP-205 instead.

    Also, the cloying coyness about the release date and implementation of MQA ("Will they, or won't they?") is becoming a bit much. C'mon, people - it's your product. You know if you'll enable the DAC to support it or not.

    But I'm sure the Pro iDSD will be a stellar product, whenever it comes out.

    Factories are gonna close in China soon ... so nothing before end of Q1 2018 is the best expectation unless proven otherwise.
    This is starting to be a joke

    We understand that you might be annoyed. Yet we were very open that with our Pro iDSD we'll take as much time as we have to and not a single day longer :)

    This is a very important product for us. It has some remarkable features and to have it shipped ASAP yet without any early days related flaws is crucial for us.

    For now we can only thank to every person out there waiting for this product. We promise that we won't dissapoint you as it's going to be glorious. And yes, we're working as fast as we can to have it released as soon as possible.:)

    I hope that @iFi audio waits or passes on MQA. The firmware on the Nano BL has some persistent issues with regards to MQA and it would add insult to injury if MQA was the reason for the delay of the iDSD Pro. I think this DAC could be something really special, and I'm hoping it doesn't turn out to be the Duke Nukem Forever of DACs. I also hope iFi doesn't wait so long that it becomes obsolete by the time it's released.

    We look into MQA deeply.

    Firmware can fix this and that's something we work on constantly.

    This is not the reason why our Pro iDSD isn't here yet. Please see below.

    It won't. We're taking our time with this one as it has several very unique functionalities and circuitry related things that need extensive testing. We go this road instead of delivering unfinished goods.

    Not possible, please trust us here:L3000:

    Preview – Pro series - part 1/5
    Pro iDSD
    Is there anything like it?

    Introduction
    [​IMG]

    Over the past few years iFi audio has delighted audiophiles and confounded industry experts with its growing range of high-quality, low-cost and very portable digital-to-audio converters (DACs). Music fans on the move could at last listen to Direct Stream Digital (DSD) on well-built portable devices that didn’t cost the Earth (£500 and under in fact).

    Now, iFi is set to rock the digital world again with the launch of iDSD Pro, a ground-breaking Quad DAC that will be used across the next generation of iFi products. Yes, it’s taken a while to come to market but, boy, has it been worth the wait! There is simply nothing like it.

    Coming up next, you'll be able to feast your eyes on our Pro iDSD jaw-dropping features. Rest assured that very shortly you'll see what we mean.

    Stay tuned!

    P.S. This might look like one fine Xmas tease and it is. But then again, it's so much more on top of that, things are going to happen very soon.

    Very exciting news. Is that an antenna I see coming out the back?
