iFi Audio Micro iDAC2 Headphone Amplifier & DAC

iFi Audio Micro iDAC2

In the footsteps of the original iFi Audio Micro iDAC follows the fully redesigned Micro iDAC2. This state-of-the-art DAC and headphone amplifier combination builds on the success of the predecessor. It provides True Native playback on DSD and PCM that keeps the integrity of the file format unchanged through the entire signal path. Ready for use in a home setup, yet small enough for portable use, iDAC2 ticks all the boxes.

Equipped with a high-grade Burr-Brown convertor chip incorporates True Native Playback filters, the Micro iDAC2 is able to convey audio in its original state as recorded in the studio. High-resolution files of any format including DSD, PCM and DXD up to 384 kHz are easily handled by Micro iDAC2.

iFi Audio incorporate DirectDrive circuitry in the Micro iDAC2 that provides the cleanest signal path possible by not reacquiring any output coupling. Micro iDAC2 also features USB 3.0 input and includes a digital S/PDIF coaxial output, allowing for digital format conversion without compromise.

Complete sound delivery.

 

iFi Audio Micro iDAC2

 

Burr-Brown True Native
The Burr-Brown chipset provides true Native playback on DSD and PCM allowing the iDAC2 to keep the integrity of the file format unchanged all the way through. DSD stays DSD and PCM stays PCM, from beginning to end.

Complete File Support
From 16/44 through to Quad-Speed DSD256 and PCM, the iDAC2 is able to handle all formats masterfully. This evokes a sonic pureness when listening to music on the iDAC2 as there is no format conversion or re-sampling.

Class A on RCA
The iDAC2 operates in Class A. Its analogue stage has two special audio grade electrolytic capacitors. The Analogue stage also uses a discrete, Class A buffer that combines an N-Channel J-Fet and a PNP bi-polar transistor that allows this buffer to handle loads of even 600 Ohms.

SPDIF Digital Connect
Drawing on the popularity of the nano iDSD and the micro iDSD, the iDAC2 also features an SPDIF output for it to be able to receive a USB signal, and convert it to output a digital SPDIF signal to another device.

Superior Components
AMR/iFi prides itself on the very best component quality: from Japan Elna Silmic II, TDK C0G capacitors to Vishay MELF resistors, the iDAC2 has them all.

Reference Voltage
iFi's own designed power supply is equipped with unique shunt noise filter which cleans the USB Power for the DAC. iDAC2 also benefits from a high-grade Film Capacitor for surface mounting combined with a smaller value C0G capacitor that provides the cleanest reference voltage yet.
