iFi Audio Neo IDSD DAC / Headphone Amp

The NEO iDSD redefines the DAC/amp experience with its 3-in-one design featuring balanced 'PureWave' circuitry, delivering unparalleled hi-res Bluetooth 5.0 and MQA decoding for the ultimate playback. Its sleek, adaptable design allows for horizontal or vertical placement, complemented by an OLED display that seamlessly flips to match orientation. With a user-friendly rotary knob, control becomes intuitive.

Versatility is at the core of the NEO iDSD, offering diverse usage options. Use it as a pure DAC by connecting to a separate integrated amp or preamp using the fixed-level analog output. Alternatively, employ it as a DAC/preamp with a variable output, ideal for pairing with power amps or active speakers. Headphone enthusiasts can revel in the excellent amp stage for a top-tier 'head-fi' experience.

For gaming enthusiasts, the NEO iDSD elevates gameplay, providing an immersive sound experience that matches the visual spectacle. Compatible with the latest gaming consoles like the PS5 or Xbox Series X, it offers the ultimate gaming adventure.

Powered by the Burr-Brown DAC chipset and a new 16-core XMOS microcontroller, the NEO iDSD's enhanced digital engine boasts double the clock speed and four times the memory. Advanced jitter eradication technologies, including the GMT femto-precision clock and intelligent memory buffer, establish it as a super DAC.

Supporting PCM up to 32-bit/768kHz, DSD up to 512, and DXDx2, the NEO iDSD ensures bit-perfect playback. Complete MQA decoding ensures the best sound quality, extending to MQA CDs in your collection.

With Qualcomm's QCC5100 Bluetooth processing IC, the NEO iDSD supports high-definition Bluetooth audio formats, including aptX, aptX HD, LDAC, HWA/LHDC, and more. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity allows the NEO iDSD to remember up to 7 devices, providing an impressive range.

Embracing a purist design named 'PureWave,' the NEO iDSD features no DSP, no digital filter selection, and a balanced circuit design. Audiophile-grade components contribute to extraordinary low levels of noise and distortion, delivering sonic purity.

The headphone amp stage strikes a balance between power and poise, accommodating a wide range of headphones. With over 1000mW continuous power output into 32ohms through the balanced headphone socket, the NEO iDSD offers ample power for headphone users.

Top-notch audio components, including custom ultra-low-distortion op-amps, TDK C0G capacitors, MELF thin-film resistors, and Murata and Taiyo Yuden inductors, contribute to the outstanding balanced circuit design. The OLED SilentLine display minimizes electrical noise, ensuring a clear and engaging audio signal. The NEO iDSD is not just a DAC/amp; it's a testament to audio excellence, combining cutting-edge technology with a commitment to pure, high-quality sound.
