The Pro iDSD Signature is iFi Audio's new flagship reference class DAC and then some! The Signature edition builds on the strengths of the original, multi-award winning Pro iDSD, as it continues to cater for those who love good music delivered at the highest quality.
The Signature takes the original Pro iDSD and pushes it even further towards perfection. Upgrades to the Pro iDSD Signature include:
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 up-convert PCM and DSD files to DSD512 and DSD1024, 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 your music 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.
The Pro iDSD Signature gives you the power and the choice to enjoy music wherever, whenever and from whatever platform you want! Pro iDSD supports the following platforms and interfaces:
Plus with a variety of headphone outputs – Single-Ended 6.3mm, S-Balanced 3.5mm and Balanced 4.4mm – the only choice is your choice!
The Pro iDSD Signature ships with iFi Audio's flagship iPower Elite. Coupled with the re-crafted power supply board which offers up to 300x lower noise, the music is buttery smooth. Within and without – no stone was left unturned in the quest for the cleanest, purest, power for the Pro iDSD Signature (same for Pro iCAN Signature too!)
