Introducing the iFi Audio Go Bar Limited Edition Gold: Birthday bling!

To mark our remarkable 10th anniversary, we've unveiled a striking special edition of the iFi Audio Go Bar.

Limited to just 1000 units, the iFi Audio 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Go Bar is adorned in dazzling gold plating and incorporates:

  • An iFi Audio copper chassis to enhance build quality and provide superior shielding.
  • Enhanced iFi Audio power supply filtering for improved audio performance.
  • A weight of 64g, adding 40g more heft compared to the original iFi Audio Go Bar.

This limited edition iFi Audio Go Bar truly embodies the 'gold standard' among ultraportable USB DAC/headphone amplifiers.

Best bar none.

The iFi Audio Go Bar represents the pinnacle of ultraportable USB DAC/headphone amplifiers in our lineup.

Whether you're commuting, working remotely, or simply on the move, the iFi Audio Go Bar offers the ultimate in portability for elevating your headphone listening experience.

Connect it effortlessly to your laptop, MacBook, tablet, smartphone, or any USB-equipped digital device to enjoy sensational sound quality at home, in the office, or while on the move.

Accessories include an iFi Audio leather travel case and an iFi Audio Lightning to USB-C cable, eliminating the need for an iFi Audio Camera Connection Kit, along with an iFi Audio USB-C OTG cable and an iFi Audio USB-C to USB-A adapter.

Compact. Yet powerful.

The iFi Audio Go Bar's DAC section harnesses the might of an iFi Audio robust 16-core XMOS microcontroller for precise audio data processing via USB input. Our in-house team has skillfully tailored the iFi Audio XMOS firmware for optimal sound quality, perfectly complementing the iFi Audio Go Bar's 32-bit Cirrus Logic DAC chipset.

Customized iFi Audio digital filtering minimizes pre-echoes and ringing artifacts, while our iFi Audio GMT (Global Master Timing) precision clock system ensures minimal jitter.

Peformance:

  • Ultra-res PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz via USB.
  • Native playback up to DSD256.
  • 2x DXD.
  • Full MQA decoding.

Choose from four bespoke iFi Audio digital filtering options and two iFi Audio analog processing modes to tailor the sound to your preferences.

An Array of Features.

The iFi Audio Go Bar's intelligent alloy case features tactile buttons for precise volume control and offers a selection of iFi Audio sonic tuning options. A row of colorful iFi Audio LEDs provides real-time feedback on audio format, sample rate, and the status of iFi Audio XBass+ and iFi Audio XSpace features.

One end houses an iFi Audio asynchronous USB-C input, while the other provides both 4.4mm fully balanced and 3.5mm S-Balanced headphone outputs, enhancing iFi Audio audio purity and reducing noise and crosstalk.

Pure Power.

Despite its compact size, the iFi Audio Go Bar's analog circuitry boasts an iFi Audio balanced design with a symmetrical twin-channel output stage. This reduces noise and crosstalk, typically found in larger and more expensive amplifiers. High-quality iFi Audio discrete components and advanced power supply filtering ensure reduced signal noise introduced through the USB input.

The amp delivers:

  • 475mW into 32 ohms.
  • 7.5V into 600 ohms.

This level of power enables the iFi Audio Go Bar to handle even the most demanding headphone loads. It also features two iFi Audio power tuning technologies: iFi Audio iEMatch for high-sensitivity headphones and iFi Audio Turbo for power-hungry ones.

Please note that the iFi Audio Go Bar may not work with iPhones up to and including 6S when the phone battery is low (<30%).

Cutting-Edge XMOS Technology.

The iFi Audio Go Bar employs an iFi Audio 16-core XMOS chip for low-latency audio data processing from USB inputs. This chip boasts double the clock speed and four times the memory compared to its eight-core counterparts, along with support for the latest iFi Audio SuperSpeed USB standard.

Our in-house iFi Audio digital development team has fine-tuned the iFi Audio XMOS firmware to maximize sound quality in conjunction with the iFi Audio Go Bar's 32-bit Cirrus Logic DAC chipset.

Unleash True Native® High-Resolution Audio.

Experience Hi-Res True Native® playback of all music formats, from MP3 to DSD256, PCM384, and DXD384. Additionally, the iFi Audio Go Bar supports MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, delivering master-level sound quality for the ultimate audio experience.

So, whether you're at home, on the go, or anywhere in between, the iFi Audio Go Bar Limited Edition Gold sets the bar high for portable USB DAC/headphone amplifiers. Elevate your audio experience with this limited edition masterpiece.

Best dongle based DAC/amp on the planet, period.

I was blown away by the resolution of this dongle DAC/amp. Ive tried the 3 Dragonfly USB DACs (black,red,cobalt), Astell&Kern HC series, ddhifi dongles, and the Luxury & Precision W2. This little Gold bar outresolves them all, even the first generation Chord Mojo. We’ve come far if this much sound can be in something as small as the Go Bar. Just like in the description, this IS the most powerful pocketable DAC/amp or dongle. I would say this is a neutral DAC, easily reveals every flaw in the recording. Soundstage is more spacious than the previous mentioned DAC/amps but not too spacious, just right.

ASSUME!

Better than HUD100, MOJO1, and L&P W2-131 that I have. Sometimes better than iFI Zen SIgnature DAC & CAN Combo on some pairs.
