The iFi NEO iDSD Performance Bundle is a new 3-in-one DAC/amp/headphone amp.
With balanced ‘PureWave’ circuitry, unbeatable hi-res Bluetooth5.1 and MQA, the NEO iDSD is the ultimate in hi-res playback. Team it with Qobuz to get access to an eclectic catalogue of more than 70 million hi-res quality tracks.
Place it horizontally or vertically to suit its surroundings. The OLED display flips to match orientation and the latest firmware provides a highly requested ‘Display Dim’ function.
One rotary knob controls functionality. Sleek, sophisticated and versatile.
The iFi NEO iDSD can be enjoyed as a pure DAC. Connect it to a separate integrated amp or preamp using the fixed-level analogue output. Or treat it as a DAC/preamp with a variable output. The ideal companion to a power amp or active speakers.
And headphone users will love using the excellent amp stage to create a fabulous ‘head-fi’ system.
Included in this bundle are the following:
- iFi NEO iDSD - Streamer | DAC | Pre/Headphone Amp
- iFi SPDIF iPurifier 2
- iFi USB iPurifier 3
S/PDIF is the main digital audio output signal for devices such as Apple TVs, PS5, Xbox and 8K Smart TVs. Mainstream devices that output an S/PDIF signal typically suffer from really low-quality transmission due to huge amounts of jitter.
The SPDIF iPurifier2 solves spdif splutters.
The iPurifier3 is set up for all future PCM, DSD and DXD formats. And it’s not just better looking on the outside, it’s been improved on the inside with updated components. No need to worry about upgrading for years to come.
It will improve your USB audio playback experience faster than you can say King Arthur and the Round Table.
The Burr-Brown DAC chipset still fuels the NEO‘s ‘digital engine’.
iFi have upgraded it up with a new 16-core, XMOS microcontroller that processes the data via USB and S/PDIF digital inputs. Double the clock-speed. Four times the memory.
Since it’s original release iFi have added more digital filters for your listening pleasure. The NEO iDSD now comes with the GTO, Minimum Phase, Bit-Perfect and Standard filters.
Add in jitter eradication including our GMT femto-precision clock, intelligent memory buffer and the newly included iPurifier3 and super smooth listening is yours.
