Wow, wow, wow! Today, our hearts are overflowing with joy and excitement. The exhilaration of receiving an EISA award has doubled for us – this year, we’ve been graced with not just one, but two prestigious awards!
We’re thrilled to announce that our GO pod has been crowned Best Mobile DAC, while our NEO Stream has earned the title of Best Streamer. Such dual recognition is both humbling and thrilling.
The GO pod is a pair of wearable Bluetooth DAC/headphone amps designed to make any pair of corded in-ear monitors (IEMs) wireless. Thanks to the quality of the GO pod’s circuitry and state-of-the-art hi-res Bluetooth, when combined with a well-chosen pair of high-performance IEMs the resulting sound is far in advance of any ‘true wireless’ earbuds or Bluetooth headphones.
The NEO Stream is a music streamer/DAC delivering class-leading performance and versatility – the ideal way to introduce high-end streaming performance to your audio system without the sky-high price tag. iFi’s uniquely versatile streaming engine combines with an ultra-resolution DAC stage, a host of connectivity options and ingenious proprietary tech to deliver what is widely regarded as the world’s best-sounding streamer at its price point.
And if you think these are our first accolades from EISA, think again! Including our dual wins for 2023-2024, we’ve collected six EISA awards over the past decade. Each one is a testament to our relentless dedication to quality, performance, and innovation:
- 2023-2024: Best Mobile DAC – iFi GO pod
- 2023-2024: Best Streamer – iFi NEO Stream
- 2022-2023: Best Mobile DAC – iFi xDSD Gryphon
- 2020-2021: Best Value DAC – iFi ZEN DAC
- 2018-2019: Best Portable Headphone Amplifier – iFi xDSD
- 2014-2015: Best Hi-Fi Accessory – iFi nano iDSD
We can’t help but produce award-winning products. However, tonight, we’re taking a moment to enjoy a chicken dinner and a beer. Cheers!
