EISA Award-Winning xDSD by iFi audio

xDSD – The EISA Award Winning DAC!

xDSD – Playing To Win

A few months ago, the iFi team and our very own xDSD went to meet the EISA judges in beautiful Antwerp. The purpose? The EISA Convention to pitch for a win!

Wired for winning

There was much to enjoy at the event, including a wonderful dinner with the fellow nominees and, all in all, the team could rest easy and appreciate their surroundings knowing that the xDSD would shine, and it didn’t disappoint.

Our xDSD really is a one-off with features such as X-Bass+ and 3D+ along with Bluetooth delivering CD-Quality music wirelessly to your headphones. We knew that the EISA judges would fall for the xDSD just as you all have.

And we weren’t wrong.

We are happy to announce that the xDSD has been awarded…

EISA Best Portable DAC/Headphone Amplifier 2018-19

EISA was not only impressed by the xDSD’s ten-hour battery life and sleek, super-light magnesium case, but they also loved its flexibility, saying:

The DAC Headphone Amplifier turns smartphones, laptops and portable players into great sounding music centres. It exudes quality and is perfect for indulging in music on the move.

They loved its S/PDIF and USB inputs as well as switchable, digital filtering to allow the flow of unbeatable frequency balance.

With praise like that, it’s easy to see why the xDSD deserves its place on the winner’s podium.

Winning is thanks to you

It’s an honour and a privilege to win the EISA award. On winning, iFi’s very own Victoria Pickles said:

We’d been excited for a long time about the xDSD release and the EISA award is the icing on the cake.

The xDSD is a small wonder. It revitalises the way people listen to music. The EISA award is a testament to the hard work of everyone at iFi in striving to create the best product possible for our customers.

Winning the award, however, is just the beginning.

At iFi we never stand still. You spur us on to create even better products. This award is just the icing on the waffle, the Belgian waffle.

And with some exciting releases on the way over the coming year, when we win, so do you – that’s why our intrepid team are hoping for a return to Antwerp in the spring.

The taste of Belgian coffee is sweet – winning is even sweeter.

Until next time,

The iFi audio Team.
