iFi iLink USB-to-S/PDIF Converter
Compact Converter Boasts Cutting-Edge Features Found in No Other Converter
Trademarked Jitter Elimination Technology and Super Digital Output
Say goodbye to jitter with the iFi iLink. The only converter of its kind with cutting-edge technology not found in any other converter, iLink also handles asynchronous high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz. Akin to other iFi products, its compact size is no indicator of its heavyweight performance - particularly when it comes to jitter. iLink means you can finally sit back, listen, and enjoy a completely faithful recording via a computer audio source to an S/PDIF-input device such as a DAC.
Unparalleled Jitter Elimination Found in No Other Converter
iLink is designed differently than any other converter. By first analyzing the transmission and conversion process impacting converters rather than starting with the converter chip, iFi surmounted the common sonic deficiencies witnessed in most converters. A result of such studies, iFi's trademarked Jitter Elimination Technology (JET), does what no other converter does. Key to the iLink's abilities, it removes jitter in the audible band to which the human ear is most sensitive. By contrast, all other jitter filtering is only effective higher up in the hearing range. Consequently, JET specifically filters the most troublesome jitter - and in the most critical range. You won't find it even in the most expensive converters.
Trademarked Super Digital Output: Full Galvanic Isolation, True Balances
In addition to possessing less than one-third the jitter of class-leading audiophile USB-S/PDIF converters, iLink boasts Super Digital Output. It encapsulates an array of unprecedented features, including High-Level Output, Galvanic Isolation, True-Balanced Output, Perfect Impedance Matching, and Ultra-Fast Rise Time. Developed through meticulous analysis and ground-up re-design of each S/PDIF transmission protocol, these advances translate into near-vanished jitter and noise - and superior music clarity and delivery.
Realize the Full Potential of High-Resolution Audio
It goes without saying that iLink brings any suitably powerful DAC up to date and realizes the full-range potential of high-resolution digital formats. Boasting an audio data bandwidth of 9216kbps, iLink touts a rate that's double that of common HD USB devices.
