    It can't be any smaller than it already is, otherwise it wouldn't do everything it does :ksc75smile:

    Sure thing. Just never leave Xbass, even on higher end/future DACs, since there are IEMs (like LCD-i3, LCD-i4 and many others) that need this feature. And it makes all the difference when we test competitors products with those headphones, that sound sterile. Xbass was able to transform the LCD-i4 in a :L3000:. Seriously.

    Hello,

    What is better to get the best SQ: iPurifier 3 or nano iUsb 3.0?
    The DAC is the iDAC2.
    Thank you in advance.

    Our nano iUSB3.0 is second only to micro iUSB3.0, thus above our iPurifier3.

    I saw the first version of this one the silver one being sold $299 at our local store is it still a good buy by today’s standards compared to the $599 black label? And also is buying a black label one still ok or will a new one incoming? Thanks in advance, Not really familiar with ifi products but see them mentioned all the time so would like to try them out... plan to connect it to an iphone a sony wm1a and if possible to a marantz integrated amplifier that i have to improve my stereo setup... thanks in advance :)

    oooh...you brought back bad memories with my prior mojo-poly; spent countless hours trying to get that thing to work; got so frustrated, I left Chord for good and not looking back...

    I agree, the micro iDSL BL is great and I use it when I need a tranportable SE amp (it doubles as my SE preamp as well).

    The i4s need a good amp (like the micro iDSL BL and even a nice desktop amp) and some say it needs some EQ; I do use ROON DSP. The i4s punch way above it's diminuative size and competes with over-the-ear full size headphones; some say it's a mini Audeze LCD-4. I've never heard the LCD-4 but my i4s knock on the door of my TOTL headphones via my headphone amp.

    Back to the micro iDSL BLs. I would definitely like to see a balanced version, eg., 4.4mm balanced? I would forgo the ability to charge my phone (I have a separate battery charger for that) and it would also reduce the size.

    Cheers!

    I too would instantly buy a 4.4mm balanced micro BL. Just hope they keep BitPerfect and don't force GTO on everyone :) just to cater to everyone's preference!

    What's GTO?
     
  12. Baten
    It's their own digital filter. Look up iFi GTO

    I personally prefer no filter

    Due to multiple FW, we don't force anything to anyone. You can pick what you need! :L3000:

    We'd say the first iDSD aged well, it still goes strong.

    If we can go this route, we will! We thoroughly like options.
