The tech spec.
The micro iUSB3.0 is powerful to the extreme with:
- REclock/REgenerate/REbalance Technology – To improve music flow

And with two sets of USB ports, you can connect an external hard drive or media server.
It really is the Swiss army knife of audio.
It does everything.
Banish ALL USB gremlins with our Total USB Solution+®. Representing the next gen of computer audio technology the micro USB3.0 works with ¢5000+ DACs.
REclock2/REgenerate2/REbalance2 - cleaner, clearer music.
The 2nd gen of this technology creates an all new signal, eliminates computer jitter and removes noise contamination to restore a 'balanced' signal.
Quiet! Active Noise Cancellation+ (ANC) at work!
Exceptionally quiet power. The measured noise floor is 100x quieter than the Common Noise Filter.
Super speed. The USB3.0's ultra-speed bandwidth of 5.0Gbps offers an incredibly wide bandwidth, ten times that of USB2.0's 480Mbps.
Vanquish ground contamination. Stay tuned in. Isoground® breaks the ground connection and the 'Auto/On" USB power line prevents contact with the DAC dropping out.
Dual Ports - just add DAC and HDD. The micro iUSB3.0 operates as a computer audiophile-grade powered hub to serve two devices. One source does not contaminate the other.
Are your devices power hungry? No problem.
This unit is also Bus, Charge 1.2 compliant meaning it can fast charge phones, tablets and even the nano and micro iDSDs!

Compact products but very high technology, exceptional
These micro are as discreet as their influence on restitution is immediately obvious. To try, Absolutely, but beware, these products are highly addictive!
It is a clean power source for USB devices and the air conditioner of the signal itself. It restores the integrity of digital information and suppresses noise transmitted on the ground bus
iFi Micro iUSB3.0 is reviewed on Stereo Magazin
The state-of-the-art innovative iFi micro iUSB3.0 power supply eliminates jitter, resolves USB noise and other playback problems, and thus improves the computer’s sound quality.
Something this doctor strongly orders
iUSB3.0 is one of many devices which address multiple USB related issues. Its main order of business is to combat noise, provide clean power to this type of signal and to regenerate it in proper fashion.
The Micro iUSB 3.0 as reviewed by Ates Berberoglu on Headphone.Guru
This is the most impressive part of the reviewed system. According to iFi, it has active noise cancellation, reclock, rebalance and regenerate technologies. The iUBS 3.0 fixes the system’s weakest part with its power regulation inside. It utilises an external power supply to eliminate bad electrical signals and reduce noise coming from the computer. This way, the system becomes quieter and more effortless.
