    Thats a bummer given the quality of the headphone amp in the idsd. its like paying for the headphone amp twice.

    What percentage of problem units exist?

    Well, things we could move from Pro iCAN to Pro iDSD we moved.

    That's unlikely at the moment, but we look into this.

    With a quality DAC, Pro iCAN shows its teeth more clearly. It's better if one is after TOTL setup and wants to remain within our range.

    Hi Guys,

    New owner of iMicro DSD Black Label and boy is it amazing, however the imbalance/unbalance sound is just insanely annoying. I don’t usually listen to my music a lot at low/mid volumes however it is clearly imbalanced (left ear is louder).

    Is there a solution to this problem? I’ve already returned and exchanged the product at Audio46 (NYC) and it’s just as bad.

    Does it bother anyone else this much? Im on the verge of returning this amp because of this.


    USING the Campfire Atlas, does anyone recommend the settings to fix this?

    EDIT: Yes, I have fiddled and tried all the switches and various matches. The Eco Channel fixes the imbalance by a little (but does it take away from the power of the bass, treble, soundquality, etc?)

    It would be perfect, but the Eco channel is almost loud enough for me, but not quite there yet which is why I'm frustrated

    I've been using the IEmatch on the bottom of the device for this problem. Once I am above about 8:30-8:45 on the volume control the imbalance subsides. If you use the highest IEmatch setting, combined with the eco gain, you should be ok :)

    You should see what the new iFi iPurifier3 does for your Micro DSD Black Label! I just bought one for my Micro BL and wow! $129 from Music Direct. Bargain. AND, if you want to go further add the iGalvanic3.0 to your stack. Don't want to get off-topic but had to chime in. Of course the iDSD Pro has all that built in.

    Yup, it has all these goodies indeed. But yeah, iPurifier3.0 is quite special.

    Is it known if the iDSD Pro uses the top of the line burr brown 1792A chips, or not?

    According to this review 1793 chips are being used:

    http://www.highfidelity.pl/@main-828&lang=en

    "The main PCB features the DAC - these are four PCM1793 chips operating in an unusual system, that allowed designers to bypass the limitations of the DACs regarding the upper sampling frequency. The company calls this mode of operation "interleaved". These systems separately convert PCM and DSD signals separately. Both first are go through digital filters. These were implemented in a powerful Crysopeia FPGA hidden under a large heat sink - this part is just like a microcomputer. The converter work in "voltage" mode, and the signal after them is filtered passively in third order filters."

    Thanks. I think the short of it is that they used 1793 because it is more "musical sounding" / for the "burr brown house sound" (0.001% THD on the 1793 vs 0.0004% THD on the 1792A) ?
    That's really too bad for a true "top of the line" product which I thought they were going for. :frowning2: (for the record I'm sure the technical performance would be great, but great could still be better, maybe).

    Pro iDSD is our TOTL product and that's what we aimed for from the start of this project. Also there's no point in focusing too much on chips and numbers associated with them. Far more important is what one does with them and Pro iDSD's d/a section is quite unusual.

    [QUOTE = "iFi audio, post: 14379834, membre: 361812"] Pro iDSD est notre produit TOTL et c'est ce que nous visions depuis le début de ce projet. De plus, il est inutile de trop se concentrer sur les puces et les numéros qui leur sont associés. Ce qui est beaucoup plus important, c'est ce que l'on fait avec eux et la section d / a de Pro iDSD est assez inhabituelle.
    hello, I do not think that chips are just numbers, of course that's what chips are very important, but some of these chips are able to roll back the background noise. is what will make the difference between one dac and another,

    I have a dac which has 4 dac per channel, TI PCMhirlec 5102, and the power supply will play an important role,

    the choice of these chips on the ifi pro DSD makes me think, ..........

    The battle of British Elites. The Pro iDSD is going up against the Qutest. Early impression of the iDSD is very good.
