Accessories > iSilencer3.0
The iSilencer3.0 address the issue of noise at the source, the USB
is bi-directional, it makes sense to pay attention here and the iSilencer3.0 with ANC technology cuts noise by 40dB or 100x.
Active Noise Cancellation®.
Fighter jet technology now cornerstone.
REBalance® the USB signal.
Because the USB signal should be balanced.
iSilencer3.0® does what it says.
Silences jitter and packet errors.
The iSilencer3.0® is an instant upgrade for all USB
ports; it adds the following features to the USB
1. Active Noise Cancellation® technology
2. Reduce jitter
+ packet errors
3. REbalance® the USB
4. USB3.0 technology for optimal transfer The iSilencer3.0® is the most direct and simple upgrade for any USB
port, it lowers noise/RFI/EMI by up to 40dB or 100x.
It is ideal for the home and on-the-go improvement of all devices connected to the USB
port, e.g. Computer Servers, Mixers, Hard drives etc. Regardless of the system; from US$10,000 to US$100, the iSilencer3.0® terminates noise, in its tracks.
Active Noise Cancellation
by AMR/iFi now rolling out across the range
Active Noise Cancellation® by AMR/iFi is in-house technology developed to cut out noise in a very significant way in the audio field. It is now the bedrock of iFi signal/power products because…..they need to address the issue of noise in both signal and power situations.
What is the Active Noise Cancellation circuit design?
Drawing from the military field (specifically the Thales Spectra radar cancellation system deployed in the French Dassault Rafale jet fighter), iFi adapted this technology to exclusively introduce the Active Noise Cancellation® (ANC®) audio power system. It is now a cornerstone of the ever-improving iFi USB
audio technology, looking for new products to feature ANC® ，and ANC+®.
An air defence radar is transmitting at a certain frequency; the signal is bouncing off the aircraft; a receiver on board the aircraft picks up the signal and a computer analyses its base frequency/modulations and an identical, out-of-phase signal is generated by an on board system to cancel out the enemy radar signal.
By generating a signal identical to the noise signal but in the exact opposite phase, it actively cancels all the incoming noise. ANC® is the perfect ‘antidote’ for power supply noise, the bane of USB
ANC® measured, noise drops by 100 times or 40dB in comparison to the Common Noise Filter. Sonically, the background and inner resolution to recordings is enhanced several levels.
Multiple iSilencer3.0s have exponential benefit
The iSilencer3.0® can be used not only at the active USB
ports but also at unused USB
ports where it will reduce radiated EMI and as the ANC circuitry is unidirectional and usually all USB
ports share one power bus, it will reduce noise bus-wide for all USB
Ports, including for example an active port that has another iSilencer3.0® plugged-in which is the one connected to another device.
Multiple ANC circuits will simply double the noise reduction each time the number of ANC units is doubled. So 2 x iSilencer3.0® will kill double the noise of a single-one and four for example will kill four times the noise of a single one, if they are plugged into the same block of USB
Ports and even though only one iSilencer3.0® has a cable plugged into it.
USB3.0 technology, at the cutting-edge
It is now a hallmark of all the latest iFi signal and power products to be USB3.0 standard. First USB3.0 is backwards compatible with USB2.0. Second, in terms of the specifications, USB3.0 is superior to USB2.0 eg the wire gauge specification is more exhaustive and the connections are better.
Hence, the iSilencer3.0® is USB3.0 standard but also 2.0 compatible.
Eye pattern is better which reflects reduced jitter/packet errors
The feature-packed iSilenercer3.0® means it is diminutive size belies it monster noise-killing properties. And because USB
port noise is ubiquitous at the source, from computer to hard drive multiple iSilencer3.0®s have a quite impressive impact on improving sonics. Yes we can see this on an eye pattern graph but the proof is in the listening and as always, we recommend our customers to take the iSilencer3.0® for a spin.
