    Well the sound is like I've never heard before. (Utopia)

    And the options for various sound signatures are endless, plus they are all great.

    This thing is pure magic, people.

    Damn you iFi, now I have to get another one for the desktop.

    Good to know though, thanks

    In short, no.

    In 0dB the Pro iDSD will output 1.13V (Balanced) or 0.56V (Single-ended) with the volume maxed out ON THE HEADPHONE JACK (not line out).

    The line out is industry standard, namely 4.6V/2.3V for Balanced/SE modes respectively in Hifi mode.

    With the Pro iCAN, in 0dB mode this will be the headphone output with the volume maxed out.

    Please use 3.5mm outputs on the Pro iCAN (iEMatch integrated) for overly sensitive headphones.

    Thanks, this is the one thing I didn’t try during demo. Will give it a try.

    Just like to ask when will the 4.4mm be available?

    Formidable combo: iDSD + Bayerdynamic Xelento

    Source: TIDAL master

    The Xelento allows to listen on "head enveloping" volume levels for long time without ear fatigue. Can't say that about e.g. Utopia, or any speaker system for that matter. Fantastic balance, dynamics and resolution and they are so tiny that you could rest your head on a side on a pillow without even squashing the sound stage.

    what is your fav filter so far?

    i like TA quite much as well
     
  11. youurayy
    Yes TA and also the Apodizing. +DSD1k upsample sometimes to smoothen things up if needed and still retain detail/control (unlike the tube modes). The tube modes don't do it for me -- so far, spent very little time with it, also maybe I'm spoiled by my Lyr 2 where I've collected some of the best tubes available.

    Just compared to Hugo 2 on the Xelentos and Hugo has a very liquid presentation but the dynamics of iDSD are unmatched. Hugo is impressive for how small it is. I guess I'll be rotating them. Good times.

    Dynamics is what really separates the idsd from the rest of the pack.

    Ifi Audio is an innovative and avant-garde brand, but I do not understand why I named TA filters, and copied the initials of a famous brand mark T + A, ....... or they have forgotten the symbol + between T and A, ........ may be a coincidence, .......
     
  14. Em2016
    It's just Transient Aligned. I don't think anyone should be getting confused with T+A.

    They also have a GTO filter but I don't think anyone assumes it means Gran Turismo Omologato :wink:

    Funnily enough, that's my preferred filter.

    Great DAC/Amp.

    Let's refresh what has been said about filters in this thread already:

    @iFi audio was that tech doc published yet? ^
