Introducing the iFi Audio GO Link: Your Headphone Dongle for Exceptional Sound

The GO Link serves as the essential missing link in your listening experience. Not only does it enable corded headphones and earphones to connect to digital devices lacking a 3.5mm headphone output, but it also delivers a substantial sonic upgrade. With its sophisticated DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) and headphone amp circuitry, the GO Link surpasses the audio capabilities of most smart devices and computers.

Flexibility Meets Performance

Designed with flexibility in mind, the GO Link features a USB-C connector at one end and robust yet lightweight magnesium alloy enclosures housing the DAC and headphone amp circuitry at the other end. A 6cm length of flexible cable in between allows you to angle the DAC/amp section towards you, reducing stress on the connected USB port.

DAC Excellence

At its core, the GO Link boasts a high-performance DAC chip from ESS Technology’s Sabre HiFi series, the ES9219MQ/Q. This advanced DAC, combined with Quad DAC+ and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator technologies, as well as a specialized crystal oscillator for clock circuitry, delivers exceptional sound quality with ultra-low distortion, crystal-clear clarity, and an impressive dynamic range. The GO Link also offers adjustable analogue gain with DRE (Dynamic Range Enhancement) and features to minimize THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and crosstalk.

Twisted for Optimal Performance

The cable connecting both sections of the GO Link utilizes silver-plated copper conductors with individual polymer insulation in a 'twisted pair' configuration. This rotational twist optimizes inductance and capacitance while enhancing noise rejection, ensuring that the GO Link's sound remains free from electromagnetic interference.

Precise Volume Control

Unlike other headphone dongles, the GO Link doesn't rely on software-based volume controls in connected digital devices, which can compromise audio resolution. Instead, it allows you to adjust the volume on the connected device, controlling the volume level within the GO Link's DAC. This hardware-based volume control enhances the GO Link's superior sonic performance.

High-Resolution Audio in a Compact Package

Despite its small size and affordable price tag, the GO Link boasts impressive hi-res audio credentials:

  • PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz
  • DSD up to 11.2MHz (DSD256)
  • MQA support An LED indicator changes color to indicate the incoming audio format, whether PCM, DSD, or MQA, along with the PCM/DSD sample rate.

Headphone Excellence

The GO Link's headphone amp features a gold-plated 3.5mm socket with iFi Audio's S-Balanced configuration to reduce noise and crosstalk. With a power output of 70mW into 32 ohms and a maximum voltage output of 2.05V into 600 ohms, it provides ample power to drive a wide range of headphones and earphones, surpassing the built-in headphone outputs of most smart devices and computers. Experience headphone heaven with the GO Link.
