A hi-res trinity
Our flagship Pro iDSD is for those who like music in all its flavours, especially high spec. It’s a standalone unit, a streamer and a DAC/amp.
And with the option to listen in solid-state, tube or tube+, there’s something for everyone.
DSD1024 and more.
The Pro iDSD plays all files from MP3 up to hi-res DSD and MQA.
For the first time, it brings Studio Grade DSD1024 to a wider audience – a rare feat. You are well and truly future-proofed.
All controlled from the palm of your hand via an app.
As with most iFi gear, they added filters to add flavor to your listening. Just like the American muscle car, GTO adds gravitas and a new dimension to your driving…sorry, listening.
They’ve also given you Bit Perfect, Bit Perfect+, Apodising, and Transient Aligned.
Your music. Your way.
Choose a wireless connection to stream your favourite tunes from Tidal, Spotify, Napster – the list is endless.
Take it up a notch by using a wired Ethernet connection to play from a router or NAS (Network Attached Storage).
Or relax with AirPlay to enjoy playback from your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
To USB or not to USB
Use USB Type A to connect a hard disk drive or a memory stick or Type B to connect a laptop or server. Or slot in a micro SDHC card with music files for instant playback.
Enjoy soulful tunes from your CD transport and enhance your gaming or movie experience as you connect via the coaxial/digital input.
Moved by music
Finally, they’ve given you a choice of headphone sockets and outputs to cover all tastes. Big ones, little ones, balanced ones…
The Pro iDSD now currently comes in two ‘balanced’ versions – with 4.4mm or 2.5mm balanced headphone sockets. You choose which version you need.
So, whatever your mood, however you connect or listen, the Pro iDSD has an option for you.
