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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
