Description

Reference-Class iFi Pro iDSD Signature DAC Offers Sterling Sound and Phenomenal Performance to Bring You Closer to the Music

The Pro iDSD Signature could be described in simple terms as iFi's flagship reference-class DAC. But it's actually much more than that: It's a powerful, elegant component that brings you closer to the music you love. You can use the Pro iDSD Signature as a standalone unit, a DAC/preamp, a network streamer, and a headphone amplifier. The Signature edition builds on the strengths of the original, multi-award winning Pro iDSD, catering to music fans who want the highest-quality gear.

The Pro iDSD Signature uses a quad-stack DAC – four 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 the functions can be controlled conveniently from an app in the palm of your hand.

The Pro iDSD Signature, like its predecessor, takes sonic tailoring to the next level. You can listen to music in solid-state, tube, or tube+ modes, all at the flick of a switch. The Crysopeia FPGA Digital Engine 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.

Like all Music Direct products, the iFi Pro iDSD Signature DAC comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.

"[It] seems as if the performers are simply, but almost holographically, placed before you, the drums pattering and the bass and piano just set back behind the trumpet.... [There is] no denying the appeal of its rich, weighty, controlled, and highly informative sound.... [This] is a headphone amplifier that's made for sitting back and enjoying."
—Andrew Everard, Hi-Fi News, Outstanding Product award

MQA Decoding

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning audio technology that enables music fans to stream reference-level recordings into their homes. Thanks to the processing power of the XMOS XU216 X-Core 200 series chipset, the iFi Pro iDSD Signature DAC performs full MQA decoding.
