iFi is excited to announce a partnership with the team at Qobuz. We love their streaming platform and have admired the work they’ve done for the high end audio community over the past two years. Given our shared mentalities around how we work with and support our customers, it was a no brainer for us.
Luckily for us, David Solomon from Qobuz got behind the idea and made it happen.
“Qobuz is excited to work with iFi. They have proven to be innovative and provide great value to those just getting into Hi- Res streaming or for the seasoned music lover/audiophile. iFi products sound amazing with Qobuz at all levels. “

Starting a new hobby or buying gear for a loved one can be pretty daunting, so here’s a few recommendations from us. Qobuz, obviously, and then…
For a starter kit, we recommend our ZEN DAC V2. This is a great all-in-one unit that will fill any budding audiophiles needs. With a warm, lush sound signature, this is forgiving with all types of music and works well with most headphones depending on the sound you are looking for. We recommend you pair the ZEN DAC V2 with the following headphones:
- Sennheiser HD6xx
- HiFiMan HE400
- Meze 99 Classics
For the next step up, if you already own a starter DAC and are looking for more, or if you have the budget and just love listening, then this is the one for you – the NEO iDSD. It’s not as warm as the ZEN DAC V2, more neutral and focused on kick and impact while still providing an overall relaxed sound. We recommend you pair the NEO iDSD with the following headphones:
- Campfire Audio Cascade
- HifiMan Ananda
- Dan Clark Audio Aeon 2
The NEO iDSD has been updated and is currently being sold with the S/PDIF iPurifer2 and the iPurifier3 at no extra cost. Take a look at the updates here.
Adding the S/PDIF iPurifier2 to the NEO iDSD will make movie or game audio match the amazing picture quality of your 4K TV. Using the iPurifier3 will quell that annoying noise and jitter often found with computer audio.
Qobuz is doing something special for NEO iDSD lovers old or new – a 90-day free trial.
Drop us a line at [email protected], provide proof of purchase and we’ll send you a link to the exclusive NEO iDSD sign-up page. 90 days of blissful music will be yours free of charge.
Qobuz is currently available in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA.
