Provides Full-Galvanic Isolation on USB3.0 and USB2.0, Includes Power Supply: iFi nano iGalvanic3.0 Breaks Ground Loops, Avoids Noise-Coupling, Dramatically Improves Computer-Audio Sound
The world's first (and only) device to offer full-galvanic isolation on USB3.0 and USB2.0 with double REgeneration, the iFi nano iGalvanic3.0 cuts to the front of the line when it comes to computer audio performance. Able to break ground loops and avoid noise-coupling during high-speed USB transfers, iGalvanic3.0 dramatically elevates sound quality all the while offering several configuration options. Two years in the making, iGalvanic3.0 provides iFi's REclock/REgenerate/REbalance process before and after isolation, galvanic isolation itself, and ultra-low-noise USB power via its Power Station Stealth Converter 0.5uV power supply. Able to support speeds from 1.5Mbps to 5Gbps and all transfer modes, this blue-ocean product features a custom-made high-frequency power transformer that claims a ridiculously low noise floor and exceptional capacitance-to-noise ratio. Its Zero Delay advanced isolation technology doesn't add any added processing or delays, while a ground link guards against hum and buzz. Everything is housed in iFi's signature aircraft-grade aluminum block that provides stellar EMI/RFI shielding. No matter your setup, iGalvanic3.0 is a must for any serious computer-audio listener. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
Onboard Audiophile Power Supply
For ease of use and utility, iGalvanic3.0 operates from USB Bus Power. A USB3.0 port is preferred as it is better constructed and supplies more power (0.9mA compared to 0.5A on USB2.0). When operating from a USB3.0 or higher port, iGalvanic3.0 can deliver up to 0.9A isolated low-noise power. Measured noise is 0.5uV (0.0000005V) @ 500mA load.
Built-In Ground Link Cancels Hum
Computer audio systems are a diverse lot. Different grounding schemes require different configurations. Knowing this means iGalvanic3.0 is dedicated for serious computer audio use and is able to suit different ground/earth setups to remove hum/buzz issues. Specifically, the Ground link switch optimizes isolation in systems involving: A. Full Isolation (default – center position); B. DC to RF soft ground link (avoid hum in systems without ground/earth – up position); C. RF soft ground link (avoid audio drop-outs in systems without RF earth – down position.
A Formidable Combo: iGalvanic3.0 and iFi iUSB3.0 Power Supply
Adding iFi's micro iUSB3.0 to iGalvanic3.0 gives you the last 5%-10% of sound improvement and several other enhancements, including: A. The absolute quietest power supply; B. Dual-headed outputs for audio and power transmission via Gemini USB cable; and C. Dual ports for dedicated SSD/HDD and DAC transmission lines.
