The Pro iDSD Signature is the new flagship reference class DAC and then some! The Signature edition builds on the strengths of the original, multi-award winning Pro iDSD. It continues to cater for those who love good music delivered at the highest quality. Use the Pro iDSD Signature as a standalone unit, a DAC/preamp, a network streamer and a headphone amplifier.
The Pro iDSD Signature uses a quad-stack DAC – 4 x DACs in an interleaved configuration – to deliver exceptional resolution. The powerful XMOS XU216 X-Core 200 series chipset processes incoming digital data and enables the Pro iDSD Signature to provide state of the art audio support – from MP3, 32-bit/768kHz PCM, DSD512, 2xDXD and full MQA decoding. Thanks to the Crysopeia FPGA Digital Engine the Pro iDSD Signature brings studio grade DSD remastering to a wider audience. It can upconvert PCM and DSD files to DSD512 and DSD1024. And all controlled from an app in the palm of your hand.
The Pro iDSD Signature, like its predecessor, takes sonic tailoring to the extreme. Listen to the your music to in solid-state, tube or tube+ modes, your choice, all at the flick of a switch. The Crysopeia FPGA Digital Engine strikes again as it enables the Pro iDSD Signature to offer several options when it comes to digital filtering. The GTO filter adds gravitas and a new dimension, and while the Bit Perfect, Bit Perfect+, Apodising and Transient Aligned filters give you even more choices to tweak the sound. The discrete, fully balanced Class A amplifier stage offers adjustable gain.
