iFi Audio, a trailblazer in high-fidelity audio components, is proud to announce the launch of the LAN iPurifier Pro (£299, $299, $AUD299) as part of the new SilentPower brand. The revolutionary brand of power and signal solutions has been formed with the intention of delivering silence and pure clarity to audio systems across the globe. This allows audio connoisseurs to experience the best possible sound quality with no distortion or interference from the power supply or cables.

The SilentPower brand is categorised into four main segments: Power supplies, Cables, Conditioners and Accessories. Each segment is meticulously engineered to deliver superior noise cancellation and power purity, ensuring that every audio experience is pristine and immersive.

iFi’s mission with SilentPower is to unlock the final 10-30% of your audio system's potential by providing high-quality products to combat noise. The new brand embodies the perfect blend of innovation, affordability, and high-quality performance, with iFi striving to make innovative power solutions accessible and caters to a price-performance ratio, meeting the demands of music lovers, audiophiles, and professional audio audiences.

Kin Chan, Director at iFi Audio commented: “We’re delighted to announce the SilentPower brand. Through our extensive research over the years, we found that due to noise interference found in either the power chain or the signal chain, many audiophiles feel their Hi-Fi systems sound dull and lifeless. Therefore, there has been increasing demand from the market for audio enhancers to deliver exceptional, lively sound”.

“To meet this demand for audio enhancer products and prioritise research and development, we’ve launched SilentPower as its own brand.”


LAN iPurifier Pro
AD_4nXeSTDL0HelJNiK8zntdDFH6XWl9EVOIwHcheU2JAkn-Dh7XFmj_RzC2xjLH8Ga3NJCcPBOoCpo-CFzDvWyQCAe6EfTrd3N47M8_gl8GQsziKORAv3pf2FyhAZzXhK4vW7IZ9-1Co9E7IHof6kJ4oRnRUN4

The LAN iPurifier Pro offers a simple plug-and-play solution to what traditionally requires complex steps. Utilising advanced optical galvanic isolation technology, it converts incoming LAN signals into optical (light) signals and back again, ensuring complete electrical isolation between input and output. This prevents any noise from the LAN system from contaminating the stream or DAC.

The LAN iPurifier Pro is an active device that also improves musical timing thanks to its signal regeneration capabilities. This eliminates all jitters and errors so listeners experience the music as clearly and correctly as possible.
Designed for speed without compromise, the LAN iPurifier Pro ensures transparent data transmission while meeting network connection standards, including 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet), IEEE 802.3x standard, and supporting 1000/100/10Mbps. It is compatible with a wide range of network devices such as 4K media boxes and media streaming PCs.

Shedding Light on Isolation


Even though increasing system noise will greatly increase the jitter of the Streamer/DAC and reduce its performance, little is done to try to isolate the Streamer/DAC from undesired system noise transferred via the LAN connections.

The optical galvanic isolation technology used by the LAN iPurifier Pro converts incoming LAN signals into optical (light) signals and back again. Consequently, the input and output are completely isolated electrically, preventing any noise from the LAN system from getting into the stream or DAC.

Story of SilentPower


How did SilentPower start?
When developing products for iFi audio, we embarked on a quest for high-quality power supplies equivalent to that of a battery. Despite exploring options such as SMPS, LPS, and batteries, we found products that fell short of our rigorous standards whilst being prohibitively expensive. So we developed our own solution; and

SilentPower was born.

AMR’s Trickle-Down Technology.

Our SilentPower journey actually began two decades ago at AMR, our ultrahigh-end sister company. Here, we pioneered several advanced technologies, including AMR’s OptiMains. This technology was designed to isolate the power supply from grid noise and DC offset, while intelligently adjusting to variations in mains power. Additionally, at AMR, we developed the world’s first patented multi-loop noise elimination technologies and drew inspiration from military radar cancellation techniques to create a patented ANC technology. This technology is now found in most of our products, including the iPower series power supplies, iPurifier series, Active power cables, and more.

We Understand Why Your Hi-Fi Sounds Dull.

Many audiophiles find that their Hi-Fi systems sound dull and lifeless, almost as if the dynamics are compressed. This often results from noise interference found in either the power chain or the signal chain. However, you might not know how to eliminate these issues, or you may not even be aware that they exist. These problems are neither visible nor audible, but they can be detected. Our products are specifically designed to tackle these common Hi-Fi audio issues.
For example, consider a typical CAS setup, where a computer is connected to a USB DAC, the USB cable carries both power and data. This makes it susceptible to electrical noise, which can negatively affect sound quality. Our iSilencer+ is a USB filter designed to remove electrical noise, including both EMI and RFI. With the iSilencer+, your music will sound clearer, warmer, and more transparent, with enhanced bass.

Introducing SilentPower. Dedicated to Audio Enhancement.

To meet the high demand for audio enhancer products and offer customers a distinct identity, we're launching a new brand named SilentPower, solely focused on audio enhancement.

At SilentPower, we prioritise quality, performance, and innovation.

Quality: We meticulously design each product to deliver unmatched sound quality, blending state-of-the-art technology with timeless craftsmanship to ensure excellence in every aspect of our audio equipment.

Innovation is our core ethos. We push the boundaries of audio technology, exploring new possibilities. Our engineers and designers tirelessly develop cutting-edge solutions to fulfil the evolving needs of our audience.

Finally, we measure success by product performance, aiming to exceed customer expectations with exceptional audio solutions. Our dedication to outstanding performance empowers music lovers to fully immerse themselves in the audio world.

With great power comes great responsibility.

With SilentPower comes great sound quality.

A very neat solution iFi - I hope it does well.

I wonder if all our FMC chatter over on the iSilencer (and other) thread(s) fed into your market research at all! 😄

Looks good and good work.👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Is it possible to swap the Sfp cables in the box?
Especially in the Gustard R26 threath they say that different sfp cables should sound different.

I’d guess that folk mucking around taking apart their neat and tidy box to try to replace internal cables (good luck finding a 5cm patch cable btw) is pretty much the polar opposite of what Ifi are going for here. Plenty of multi-box spaghetti junction options already out there for tweakers to fill their boots.

Brilliant and well priced. Great for desktop systems or if your gear is not too far from incoming service, but for chaps like me who are 7 meters away it’s still better to use FMCs with the fiber doing most of the legwork and very short LAN cables at the two ends. But this is a really great piece of kit for everyone else

I also had the thought that there will probably be no 5 cm cable as an ‘upgrade’.
Would of course be a good thing if so, in case systems sound too bright, too dark, too warm or too neutral.
That you could still tune something there.

I don't really see a problem with using this box from Ifi even at greater distances.
Whether the ‘dirty side’ is 7, 10 or 15 metres away and it is ‘cleaned’ at the end via glass fibre should not be a problem.
Ultimately, the FMC boxes are not much different, this box from Ifi is more compact in this respect and could possibly even have better timing overall.
Correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking.

You could use a WiFi network extender at your equipment location...

Thank you very much!

Regarding your question I honestly do not know the answer, as you see from my photo posted above its size is diminutive and I have not even given a thought to opening it up as I have only had it for a few days for testing.


That being said in our hobby I am sure if there is a way someone will surely post a video on YouTube or instructions here on how to do it :o2smile:

Cheers!!
