This article was born in my head a long time ago, mainly due to repeated questions from time to time, whether I had contact with filtering devices like iSilencer, Jitterbug etc. But since I run my humble blog, I’ve probably got used to most people to a few maxims, which I am guided in total not only in the field of audio equipment, but generally in life…
When is a plug not a plug?
When it’s the iFi iPower.
If your system’s power supply is unclean, background noise affects your sound quality.
The iPower cleans this up, addressing the problems at both the output and input stages.
It makes your sound flow cleanly and effortlessly.
The power of four.
The iPower has four barrel tip adapters, which means it’s compatible with all wall pin types across the world (UK/US/EU/AUS), as well as USB and centre negative audio adapters.
Whatever you’re listening to, the iPower smashes through the sound barriers that hold devices back from achieving clear, uninterrupted sound.
Adapt to change.
The iPower makes music come alive with incredible low-floor noise and adds detail originally lost through conventional power supplies that are often just mobile phone chargers that have no regard for quite power.
The iPower is at least ten times quieter than previous iFi power adapters, twenty times quieter than audiophile linear power supplies and one thousand times quieter than standard wall adapters.
At home or abroad, there’s nowhere the iPower can’t go.
Audiophile-standard DC power supply.
Works with virtually any DC powered device.
Just check the correct voltage (5V/9V/12V/15V).
Quiet! Active Noise Cancellation+ (ANC) at work!
Exceptionally quiet power. The measured noise floor is 100x quieter than the Common Noise Filter.
Light and convenient to use.
As it comes in 5, 9, 12 and 15 volts and with pins for the USA, United Kingdom, Europe and Australasia, it can be used all around the world.

Overview of iFi Audio accessories and filters – does filtering matter?
Must have, low noise SMPS for many devices
Incredible value and quality. Improved my Chord Qutest dac and also the raspberry pi computer power supply when used with The Allo Digione Signature network streamer board.
Significant sound upgrade w/ Ethernet sourced DAC
Using this with an TP-Link 8 port switch. I decided to try this as I connect a PS-Audio DAC w/Bridge II using Ethernet as I found WiFi wasn’t as stable for 24/192 6mbps sources in my home. Wasn’t sure what the results would be using the iPower but for the price it was worth a try. I have to say I don’t understand why but the results were substantially positive.
What I had prior sounded really good, but with the iPower it sounded like I got a new DAC. Soundstage has snapped into more focus, and tighter, fuller, and lower bass. Vocals have more presence. It’s not just me as friends have asked what changed. Impressed but unsure why it worked so well.
Turbopower for the xpression Project table
The 15v ipower has enough amperage to work with the expression Porject table. Just be careful that not all work as some have higher amps. But the main thing is the expression gets a blacker, darker and more soulful background and for 49 small ones it isnt too bad.
Id prefer a better looking power supply but we cant have everything. As amazon lets you return then just try it and see if you like it. No risk so Im a happy camper. Bingo the upgrade!
Great power supply
Works well, good product, I would recommend it.
Works great with the OriGen G2!
Very clean power output for delicate sound frequencies! Sound have bought this for all my previous audio equipment years ago. Simple, effective, and great value.
