Can you please try different software, i.e. JRMC?
JRIVER does not work either ;-(( will try audirvana and keep you posted
You could mention this problem, in the hope that Ifi would finally want to fix it for real, rather than affecting a "diplomatic" indifference:
Yes, please do. You can always reach us here with any issues regarding our products: http://support.ifi-audio.com/index.php
Now to striptease this new diplomatic answer: Is this 'almost' meant in astronomic time scale or indeed a terrestrian? Can't get regular interest for my fat and lazy iDSDpro budget cause of the European financial policy: dead money waiting to resurrect as an iDSDpro...
Please wait until tomorrow
Well, tomorrow was yesterday, so now I am waiting for a literarily TOMORROW...
Folks, just a quick announcement to make:
Pro iDSD with 4.4mm headphone out is officially available!
The price for Pro iDSD 4.4mm is US$2.749 (ex-tax) or €2,999/£2,749 (incl. VAT).
Also, Pro iDSD 4.4mm headphone out's power output is (16 Ω balanced/single-ended) >4200mW/1>1,575mW.
What are the corresponding power figures for 300/600 ohms?
Very nice. Now, and this question had to be asked, could you change my 2.5 to a 4.4 version?
You'd have to ask your local iFi representative about that.
I’ve had some more time to play around with the iFi Pro iDSD and I am absolutely loving it. With the release of the 4.4mm balanced version having happened, I really think this is a competent all in one offering, the most many would need. It is *extremely* feature rich, and this is a double edged sword. I’ve been finding myself getting some interference or just weird things happening with certain filter combinations, or input combos etc….I think it may have to do with the wireless feature? I’m not sure. I haven’t been able to nail down the exact combos that things happen with, so bear with me, but it is something to note.
The Pro iDSD now puts out 4200mw from its balanced output (4.4mm version) and that combined with the 18db gain setting is pretty much all you will need for most headphones. However, I own the Susvara, and it definitely does better with more power behind it, so I have been testing the iDSD as a standalone DAC as well. Again, it performs admirably. SS, Tube. Tube + modes, all kinds of filters, DSD1024 upsampling, you really can’t ask for more features from a DAC, and it sounds good whilst doing it all, too.
At first I was unsure of the Pro iDSD, after all, they have the Pro iCAN, why do a DAC/Amp combo in the same form factor? Why not just a straight DAC? After spending more time with the Pro iDSD, it is beginning to make more sense. I love my Micro iDSD BL, and this is just a grown up desktop version of it. It isn’t too large, so it fits on a desk nicely, it can be combined with the Pro iCAN if you are driving the Susvara or similar, and the iESL if you are running electrostats.
The amp section is not *as* competent as the Pro iCAN, but it certainly doesn’t suck, and I have found it more than adequate for listening during the day, switching to my full desktop set up at night.
As a quick aside, it really seems to synergise well with the ZMF headphones I have here, the Verite, and Eikon.
I have another month with the iDSD so I will report back with a full review (which will be long, due to all the features) but so far, this thing really is making a positive impression on me. It just sort of…..does it all?
Thanks and enjoy!
Still waiting for ifi to fix network stuttering higher than 96k. Love my pro idsd otherwise
Lots of great info in this thread.
Any noticeable diffs between inputs? Presently running an Ambre/Onyx via the 12S and thinking of adding a Pro DSD into the chain from BNC/Coax, since the DSD is not yet Roon-ready.
Also, Anh recommendations for 1/4-inch to TRS balanced adopters?
