Pure silence. Clean power to the maX.

With crème de la crème components and tech, the iFi iPower X deep cleans the background noise created in your mains power. Can now be used with a wider variety of equipment.

Silence. Personified.

The original iFi iPower provides an effective, clean power solution for noise in your system.

But why not push your power upgrade to the max with the all-new iFi iPower X? 

Our new ultra-low noise AC/DC power supply has be optimised to take  advantage of new knowledge, components and tech in the world of super high-frequency power supply design.

Active cancellation

The iPower X uses Active Noise Cancellation II  to cancel all incoming EMI or RFI noise.

This is the same tech as in active noise-cancelling headphones! Imagine how well these block out cabin noise on a plane compared to regular headphones?

This is what the iPower X does to your power supply.

Improved capacitance

As usual with iFi, every new design means not only improving how it looks on the outside but more importantly, how it functions on the inside.

The input capacitance is now 50% larger and the output capacitance is 150% larger when compared to the original iPower.

In practical terms, this gives you more filtration, improved dynamics and unsurpassed sound quality.

iPowerX Tear Down

Crème de la crème components

We’re using the latest solid organic capacitors for better suppression of high-frequency noise. And the leakage capacitance is some 20x lower than your normal SMPS!

In a nutshell, there is no escape for unwanted noise!

All in all, the iPower X will give you 20% more power than the original iFi iPower and increased amperage which means it can work with more equipment than ever before.

Sleek, modern design

The iPower X comes dressed in a new cream/beige chassis for a cool, clean look.

We’ve added several openings and the iFi logo backlit by a pleasant cyan LED light. There’s no second guessing when this mini work of art is on and connected to the mains.

And as always, we’re giving you freedom. The iPower X is interchangeable with wall pin types across the world (UK/US/EU/AU purchased separately).

Because we play music too…

Musician? Loving your effect pedals but not so much one when goes down in the middle of a gig? And your spare is nowhere to be found?

Our iFi iPower X has a centre negative adapter so you can use this correctly with your gear.

Cleaner sound AND the show goes on! What’s not to like?

iPowerX for LED lights

Photography? No way. iPowerX can also solve my flickering LED light problem?

Yes, a constant current and voltage power supply like iPowerX will ensure that the current supplied to your LED system will remain stable, no matter the fluctuations of the AC power in your wall socket.

Based on military tech, our improved Active Noise Cancellation II®  actively cancels all incoming noise.

It does this in a similar way to active noise-cancelling headphones – it generates a signal identical to that of the incoming electrical noise but in the opposite phase, actively cancelling it out. This is highly effective at removing low- and mid-frequency noise, while passive insulating filters deal with higher frequency interference. This combination is measurably more effective at eradicating noise corrupting the USB signal than devices relying solely on passive filtering.

It reduces the noise floor by > 40dB (> 100x).

For better suppression of high-frequency noise, we added solid organic semi-conductors to its output filter.

The iPower X leakage noise is 20x lower than normal SMPS (100pf vs 2,200pf).

When compared to the original iPower:

i. Input capacitance is 50% larger; 47uf instead of 33uf.

ii. Output capacitance is 150% larger.

It works with virtually any DC powered device and comes in 5, 9, 12 and 15 volts.

Just check the correct voltage and away you go. Clean, audiophile grade power.

Reviews

Just buy one. Cheapest way to hotrod your DAC.

Using this on an RME ADI-2 FS v2 (AKM4493 version with SDLD filter). Bought it as a curiosity but I’m SUPER GLAD I did!!!!

Immediately discernible improvements in blackness, smoothness, detail, air, imaging width/depth, & separation.

Unit also runs slightly cooler by a couple degrees F, but that’s a non issue.

Before a rank objectivist chimes in, I’m professional audio editor, an expert witness in courts of law on audio, and a full voting AES member. I can hear a difference. Empirical statement.

Bottom line: highly recommended for the money. Very highly. 👍

Active Noise Cancellation

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) reduces unwanted sound by the addition of a second sound wave specifically designed to cancel out the first. This basically results in no sound at all as it reaches unwanted sound even at the lowest frequencies.

Passive noise cancellation is done by means of insulating filters and works best on the middle to high frequencies. It does not work on the lower frequencies meaning that some sound can still be heard.

EMI (Electromagnetic Interference)

EMI is a type of interference caused by errant and unwanted electromagnetic waves that are received and amplified by an audio system. They cause some of the annoying ‘audio gremlins’ we often talk about.

RFI (Radio-frequency interference)

Radio-frequency interference (RFI) is very similar to electromagnetic interference (EMI) but is found in the radio frequency spectrum. It is another source of irritatiing, unwanted noise often talked about as an ‘audio gremlin’.

Top tip: just don’t add water.

Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS)

A switched-mode power supply is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. It transfers power from a DC or AC source to DC loads, such as a personal computer, while converting voltage and current characteristics.

Switch-mode power supplies are widely used because of the advantages they offer in terms of size, weight, cost, efficiency and overall performance. They are in themselves noisy and were not designed with audio in mind.
