micro iDSD Black Label
Remember your first gig?
Remember the beat kicking in, the feeling as the adrenaline hit and how everything, right there, right then felt like Utopia?
The micro iDSD Black Label takes you back to your very first time.
Supercharge your sound.
The micro iDSD Black Label is our flagship desktop digital to analogue converter (DAC) and comes with three power modes: Eco, Normal, and Turbo that inject a kick-ass supercharged edge into your tunes.
Say goodbye to flat, dull music.
Feel the power.
Our flagship DAC looks awesome at home, but it’s even cooler when you’re out and about.
And with up to twelve hours of battery life, you can show off your musical chops – with enough power left over to charge your mobile phone.
Now, you weren’t expecting that!
The tech spec.
The micro iDSD Black Label is loaded with the latest technology, including:
- X-Bass+ – To clean up and restore a rich, deeper bass line
- 3D+ – To recreate live stage atmosphere
If you’ve been searching for the pinnacle of sound, you’ve found it.
Our 3D+ Holographic® dual-analogue matrices create a louder, deeper soundstage that puts the artist with you in the room, not just in your headphones.
And the XBass+® analogue bass correction system corrects headphone/speaker bass response to deliver a deeper tighter, rich and more prodigious bass.
True Native® playback of all music formats from MP3 to DSD512, PCM768 and 2xDXD.
Hear music as the artist intended. The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged for the truest sound.
Power and style.
With output power at 4,000mW, the headphpone amplifier in this iFi powerhouse drives headphones with style and aplomb.
Plus with three power output modes, Eco, Normal and Turbo, it is able to have the power and gain dialed-in perfectly to suit ALL headphones.
Os-Cons, originally from Sanyo (now taken over by Panasonic) have been used in AMR components up to the revered CD-77 Reference Class CD Processor.
Despite costing ten times more than that of common electrolytic capacitors, the micro iDSD Black Label is one of the first products to cost less than US$1000 to feature them.
Top-notch operational amplifier. This is iFi/AMR quality at its best. The 'OV' ICs are streets ahead of mainstream commercial chips and use HCOFC copper lead-frames and 4N Gold bond-wire.
Most commercial amplifiers use inexpensive aluminium bond-wire and low- grade/low-cost copper in lead frames.
Hi-Res on the go, go go!
Even with the hungry Hifi Man HE-6 or Sennheiser IE-800, enjoy your music for 6 -12 hours.

Micro BL – portable headphone AMP, Preamp and DAC
iFi audio’s efforts have succeeded brilliantly. I’m often asked by headphone newcomers to recommend headphone amp/DACs that are not too expensive, but that also offer very serious high performance. Judging by the performance I observed from the BL, it perfectly fits that bill – and then some.
The sound quality of the DAC is excellent
The amp sound great and will power even hard to drive headphones.
Micro BL – converter with additives!
A generous set of accessories can be found in the luxuriously decorated package. The BL sets a very high bar, leaving connoisseurs the opportunity to enjoy the process, experiment and the subtle nuances of taste.
Micro iDSD Black Label is more than a DAC
The BL can also form the basis in a stationary location in a traditional audio setup where USB often plays a role. It can also be used in a living room setup that has the potential to give your music quality.
It is packed with a lot of features in a small case!
What is Stereo Mecmuasi talking about?
The Micro BL of course!
It achieves impressive work in this price class. Micro BL is a very successful device.
