iFi AUDIO Nano iDSD BL overview

  • 1Description

The pocket-sized iFi AUDIO Nano iDSD Black Label is a portable, USB DAC and headphone amplifier designed to provide high-resolution audio on the go, when playing or streaming music on your iOS/Android smartphone or tablet.

The Nano iDSD Black Label is equipped with high-quality components and a Burr-Brown DAC chip that can handle PCM files up to 32-bit / 384 kHz. It offers support for Tidal's MQA high-resolution streaming format as well as DXD and DSD file formats. You can choose between two listening options—the Listen filter (Minimum Phase Bezier Filter) and the Measure filter (Linear Phase Transient Aligned Filter) for a neutral frequency response.

The amplifier provides 285mW of power per channel, giving it the ability to drive high-impedance headphones. The built-in IEMatch circuit delivers a hiss-free response from sensitive headphones and in-ear monitors. S-Balanced wiring technology supports headphones and in-ear monitors fitted with balanced wiring, while providing unbalanced headphones with the benefits of a balanced circuitry, including low noise, low distortion, and half the crosstalk.

The Nano iDSD Black Label is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery, which provides up to 10 hours of continuous operation. It ships with a USB cable, two USB adapters, a silicone bracelet, and an iFi bag.
