    Hi bluesaint

    The Pro iCAN and Pro iESL have a wealth of inputs. The Pro DSD was not initially designed to have balanced connections but with user comments, we did that. We can but try our utmost!

    Many thanks

    Hi Katie88

    I am so sorry that you are disappointed.

    We decided to offer our customers more choices from the feedback that we received from them. We want to keep all of customers happy.

    Please bear with us a little longer. It is worth the wait.

    Many thanks for your understanding.

    Hey,

    I don't mind - have been waiting years for this to come out anyway. But what is the iRack pro and does it look good as well as perform well? Will need something nice to rest the iDSD pro on.

    Actually, it is a simple question.
    What will you do if your customers are still giving feedback after you modified your products? Will you still want to keep them happy and modify your products again and again and stuck in this loop? Nothing in the world is perfection and it is not an excuse for lying to your supporters. One delay is forgivable but more than that, it isn't.

    Nevertheless, I am owning the Pro iCan and still hope the Pro iDSD will be a great product, but its price seems to be a little bit unaffordable to me.

    Hi kinagiyuki

    Thank you for your comments. The idea for the Pro iDSD was driven by our customers from the word go. We felt in this instance it was fair to take on all worthwhile feedback while we could. Obviously, this has to come to an end as no project is never ending and as stated, we hope to deliver the Pro to you as soon as possible.

    Many thanks for your understanding.

    Best wishes

    Hi all300b

    The Pro iRack has been designed from the ground up to perfectly support the iFi Pro series.

    Modular in construction, it can grow with your collection.

    Best wishes

    We have taken all our customer's feedback already and the final product is nearly ready.

    Hence now, the wishlist is closed.

    Extra Ordinary MQA Easter Egg

    [​IMG]

    Introduction

    With Easter just around the corner, iFi audio has delivered an eagerly anticipated upgrade option as a very special Easter gift.

    iFi first introduced MQA into its product mix with the nano iDSD Black Label in November 2017. Since then, iFi customers across the globe have been asking when this option would be available in other iFi products. The good news is that the latest improvements to the nano Black Label firmware version 5.30, ‘Cookies & Cream’, does just that.

    Mqa for all

    This latest firmware flavour not only adds the latest scoop to the nano iDSD Black Label sundae but it also dishes out MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) audio to the full range* of iFi audio products going back to 2013!

    [​IMG]

    This ‘legacy’ update means that you can now download the MQA upgrade (PC and Mac) straight from the Support section of iFi’s website at no extra cost.

    Mqa optimised

    Firmware version 5.30 will optimise your device for MQA and can handle up to DSD256 and PCM384. Enjoy the MQA magic like never before.



    And Finally…

    None of the above would have been possible without the MQA software engineers who worked tirelessly alongside the iFi software team to make this unique opportunity happen. Thank you.

    Go to https://ifi-audio.com/audio_blog/mqa-firmware/ to enjoy your upgrade.

    This firmware provides MQA rendering as this is the ideal solution for portable products and those with power considerations. This means the workload is shared between the host (the computer) and the client (the DAC). The listener will still enjoy full MQA experience.

    For more information on MQA, go to http://www.mqa.co.uk/customer/how-it-works

    Legacy

    *The only exception is the original iDAC.

    Easter ‘Bug Bounty’ Hunt.
    Hunt 'em, wherever they are...

    bounty1.jpg

    Introduction


    Our just announced firmware v5.30 is MQA capable and in one fell swoop, elevates legacy iFi products* with MQA capability for even more sonic enjoyment.

    The MQA integration was a little difficult. It involved:
    1. Totally replacing the customised core code
    2. Re-apply tuning/core loading and
    3. Further fine tuning the firmware for even more precise allocated resource use in order to allow us to support MQA and 384kHz.

    To bring all this to fruition required the combined efforts of the MQA and iFi software developers or a total of +1,000 programming hours to deliver firmware v5.30 (excluding testing on all iFi legacy units).

    Notwithstanding, there may still be one or two software bugs we have not quashed – hence we would like to involve you, the customer – in the Easter Bug Hunt.

    More details are to be found in this thread:
