High-end desktop USB DAC
Award-winning sound with fantastic dynamic range, the micro iDAC is a must have.
Analogue output stages, power supply quality, and USB interface technology all factor into the quality of this audio device. The iDAC utilises an advanced Asynchronous/Jitterless USB interface to deliver the best audio quality.
The DirectDrive technology (originating from studio equipment) has negated the need for coupling capacitors, providing a shorter and purer signal path. Compared with most USB-powered audio devices, this technology uses direct-coupling and other technologies to produce greater power output and lower distortion. Headphones are responsive across the frequency range; to give the most undistorted, uncoloured performance. The iDAC will captivate your ears with its superior audio quality.

USB Audio Purification
The iFi iPurifier2 is packed with the very latest USB audio purification technology iFi. It not only has the original iPurifier’s REbalance® to re-equalise the unbalanced signal for an improved audio datastream, the iPurifier2 features the all-new Active Noise Cancellation® technology which cuts USB port audio band noise by 26dB or 20 times.* REclock* asynchronous technology eliminates USB jitter, frame and packet noise; it re-clocks/re-generates/repeats the USB signal (able to extend USB length) and restores signal integrity.
The iPurifier2 delivers a comprehensive USB signal quality solution. From common electrical, protocol, data and EMI/RFI issues, the iPurifier2 solves them all, in one, thumb-sized design. Digital audio is now more analogue then ever.

Mercury USB Cable 1M
Generic USB cables can have a negative effect on your music.
Meet Mercury, created by iFi to give you maximum signal transfer and minimum interference.
Looking for maximum signal transfer from your cables, then the iFi Mercury cable is for you.
Standard mass-produced cables normally have the signal and power cables compacted closely together. This hinders conductivity and often results in poor signal transfer.
Not so with our Mercury cable.
…mercurial, fleet-footed by nature.
The Mercury cable carries the audio signal and power in two separate cables. It employs heavy OFHC continuous copper silver matrix conductors for the best possible signal transfer.
Each iFi cable follows closely the tech specs of usb.org. The cable construction is a custom minimum inductance parallel type with dual-shielding. This protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise and provides the cleanest transfer medium possible. This means sound quality is not compromised as with many ‘off the shelf’ versions where inadequate shielding is commonplace. Crucially, the whole design hardly has a 5% tolerance to the 90ohm impedance rule.
The signal runs through the cable and the final connector. This connector must also be exceptional.
Most USB cables use moulded plastic covered connections that do not shield the high frequencies present in the USB data link and noise radiates out. Very few manufacturers make their own connectors and rely mass-produced connectors which means durability is compromised.
Our FINAL USB connectors provide impeccable end-to-end RF shielding. They are machined entirely from solid, aircraft-grade aluminium.
