I have an iDSD, iPower and an iCan, but why put a different USB connector on it compared to the original?.

It's fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 cables but will only of course then operate at USB 2.0 speeds (apparently).

Thanks for the answer. So there is an audio benefit to USB3.0 compared to USB2.0?

The jury is still out on that one I think :rolleyes:


At the moment all I can imagine is 3.0 over 2.0 is about future proofing. I can appreciate iFi for this.

3.1 has been out for two years and has not taken off one bit.

That's not to say you can future proof anything 100%, but within a reasonable amount, certainly.

Nice pictures. Wouldn't it be nice if all new designs came with the iPOWER power supply as standard.

Where do I get one of these in the US? No word on Music Direct. I also want a 5v iPower (I am using 2 9v iPower adapters).

Not sure. It would cost extra, but you would save on the price of the standard PSU.

The iPower has been shipping with iCAN, iTUBE and iUSBPower since February or March.
