Ifi got in touch to let us know about their new DAC. They claim that “the micro iDSD ‘Black Label’ is the world’s most powerful DSD/PCM/DXD battery-powered DAC.”. They go on to say, “Perhaps ‘Double Black’ is a more apt description because it is different on the outside as well as the inside”.
“The matt and gloss black anodising is set against the ‘burnt orange’ silk print. While keeping in essence the same design philosophy, we re-engineered the micro iDSD after taking on board customer suggestions and integrating the most advanced and newest components available”.
