It solves an issue with a ground-loop or GPU noise which I’m sure a lot of people might have.
Defender of the earth.
Earth is in big trouble.
You’re listening to your favourite tracks at half-strength due to unwanted noise loops caused by multiple power points.
Your music needs a superhero: The iDefender3.0.
Break the chain.
When you’re using multiple plugs and ports, each has its separate earth point. This creates an unwanted chain of noise that causes buzz and distortion.
The iDefender3.0 plugs into your USB port, injects super clean 5v power and creates a single earth point for faster, cleaner sound quality.
Listening to music on a DAC?
Then couple the iDefender3.0 with the iFi iPower for a superhero team that halts hiss and crackle in your speakers in its tracks.
Inject super power into your system with the iDefender3.0.
Hiss and distortion will be brought back down to earth, allowing your music to soar.
The tech spec.
The iDefender3.0 is a specialist with:
- IsoEarth – Intelligent detection and solving of ‘ground loops’
- Inject, clean 5v – perfect power supply for downstream DACs
If you’ve been searching for super sound, you’ve found it.
Breaks ground loops in the correct way.
Kills USB power noise by breaking the noisy power supply.
It significantly reduces the system noise floor and makes for better dynamic contrast, warmth and resolution.
Injects 5 volts of clean power clean via a 'separate' micro port.
It disconnects the USB Power from the PC and replaces it with a clean external power (optional iPower* 5V for ultra low noise)
Cutting edge USB3.0.
The better, faster USB3.0 connection equals even better sound quality.
The wire gauge specification is more exhaustive and the connections are better.
iDSD Nano LE, iDefender 3.0 & iPower 5v all put to the test
Does exactly what it’s supposed to do
Does exactly what it’s supposed to do. I had a ground loop issue over USB. My options were to remove the ground on my amp (which is unsafe) or to get a USB ground isolator. This worked! Plus, it came SUPER fast directly from the manufacturer with a nice little note, too.
iDefender USB 3.0 is reviewed on Stereoikolorowo
John H. Darko gets the gist of the new accessory releases whilst at RMAF 2016!
iEMatch: “The first is for headphone listeners. The iEMatch is an inline attenuator that reduces headroom and re-introduces the listener to the potential for a wider dynamic range”iDefender 3.0: “a single purpose device that will stop ground loops in their tracks in the most obvious way possible: pulling the plug on USB power itself. Data will still pass freely.”
iSilencer 3.0: “ an accessory designed to cauterise electrically noisy USB feeds”
