Small is beautiful
Whether you are listening via headphones on the bus or via your system on the sofa, the award-winning xDSD Portable DAC/Headphone Amplifier from iFi makes your music sound better. With a pure analogue volume control retaining full-resolution at all volume levels, the xDSD is a major sonic step up for all smartphones, digital audio players and computers. Its selectable 3D+ and XBass+ functions bring both sensitivity and power to the careful listener. The artist appears in the room with music and lyrics flowing all around. The xDSD has pulled off the task of being ultra-portable and wireless while supporting high resolution formats, including MQA and delivering 500mW of power per channel. By means of aptX HD and AAC, it brings hi-res streaming to Bluetooth.
The convenience of Bluetooth means your headphones connect to the xDSD, leaving your phone or chosen device wire free. Pop the xDSD in your pocket and it’s business as usual but with much better sound. The xDSD boasts both aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth for CD-like quality, with standard Bluetooth, the sound quality drops by 30%, not so with the iFi Bluetooth implementation.
The battery lasts up to 10 hours and ‘smart’ tech ensures you enjoy optimum listening time adjusted according to your usage. The xDSD has a separate USB charging socket and a metallic chrome finish with an elegant, ergonomic design, based upon the Japanese Zen garden.
