I will steal the second post of this thread! Mwahahaha!

On a more serious note, I really love the design and looks of xDSD, this gotta be the thing from iFi that'll really more more likeable by the more general public, when compared to the larger and more industrial iDSD BL Micro :)

I mean, I like iDSD BL Micro, but this is cooler on another level, especially for somebody who loves metal music as much as I do (it has a really nice vibe for rock loving people :) )

If this is in the price range of the iFi Nano iDSD Black Label portable DAC/amp I just bought but is new/improved/better, I’m going to be non-chuffed!

I don't know whether we have a price estimate from iFi yet, but I think this has most of the tech found in the iDSD Micro BL, just a tad smaller, so I think it would still be a bit above Nano in quality, and maybe price (?)

If you're talking about iDSD Black Label Micro, then I am not sure what to say, it has a smaller physical size, and the power might not be as high

From the very little that can be gathered from this pic, it looks like something in between the nanos iOne and iDSD BL. Cannot see a balanced out, but it has Bluetooth.

Drat I got into this one too late! Looks awesome guys, I was just speaking with a friend wondering when you guys would more aggressively tackle the portable market. The Black Label iDSD Micro is nice but kinda too big for portable and the Nano was wonderful but not end game, so I'm excited to see where this one lands! An while I like the new look it is a little sad to see the old aesthetic go, either way change is always a part of progress and I'm excited to hear more about this! Plus the new design is pretty stellar looking, @Dobrescu George is right it does have a nice HardRock/Metal vibe!
