iFi Audio Nano iDSD BL Headphone Amplifier & USB DAC - Black Label

iFi Audio Nano iDSD BL

High-definition portable listening, iFi Audio presents the Nano iDSD Black Label pocket-sized headphone amplifier and DAC. Able to play any file format from DSD to PCM to MQA high-resolution streaming the Nano iDSD BL is the perfect solution for listening on smartphones and portable devices without compromise. It is also well suited to connect to home listening systems.

Audiophiles can take high-resolution listening with them in any file format with high-resolution thanks to advanced DAC chips that easily handle any format. Nano iDSD BL incorporates a powerful amplifier that provides 285mW of power per channel, giving it the ability to drive high-impedance headphones. Sensitive headphones and IEMs benefit from the built-in IEMatch circuit that delivers a noise-free response.

To support balanced headphones and in ear monitor earphones the Nano iDSD BL has been equipped with advanced S-Balanced wiring technology. Unbalanced headphones also benefit from this technology achieving low noise, low distortion, and half the usual crosstalk.

Take it to the next level.

Abundant Power
With maximum output power around 10 times that of iPhone 6, the Nano iDSD Black Label can drive most headphones on the market. From in ear monitor earphones to mid-size headphones, the Nano iDSD BL is able to drive them with ease. The built-in iEMatch circuit ensures that even extremely sensitive headphones and IEMs are ‘hiss free’ throughout the volume range.

Extended Listening
You can take the Nano iDSD Black Label everywhere you go and it won’t drain your phone's battery. The Lithium Polymer battery gives the Nano iDSD Black Label up to 10 hours of non-stop musical enjoyment.

Master Quality Authenticated
Take TIDAL or your MQA file to a whole new level. MQA makes hi-res audio streaming a reality and delivers studio master quality audio to your headphones. An original Master file of up to 384kHz/24Bit which has been encoded in MQA is transmitted lossless with the original 384kHz/24Bit output.

Hi-Res Audio Certified
The Nano iDSD Black Label is one of the best native high-resolution DACs you can find, supporting PCM up to 32/384 kHz and DSD up to 256 times the sample rate of a CD. It is also certified ‘Hi-Res Audio’ according to rigorous criteria set by the Japan Audio Society.

S-Balanced Wiring
Nano iDSD Black Label also includes the S-Balanced wiring system for the headphone outputs, giving the full benefit of balanced outputs when used with balanced headphones and IEMs with low-noise and lower distortion. Even single-ended headphones benefit as S-Balanced cuts crosstalk in half.

Superior Components
The Nano iDSD is one of the few portable, truly audiophile DAC and amp combinations out there. The parts, the circuitry and the implementation are far superior to the standard in every way.
