iFi AUDIO xDSD High-Resolution Portable Bluetooth USB DAC & Headphone Amplifier
Our portable DAC and headphone amplifier will improve the sound quality of your music.
Whether you are listening via headphones on the bus or via your system on the sofa, the award-winning xDSD makes your music sound better.
The xDSD is for people who love to listen — on the go or at home.
You choose wireless via Bluetooth® or wired via USB or SPDIF.
Apple or Android, DAP, games console or TV, just connect the xDSD and enjoy the ultimate audio experience.
The xDSD plays high-quality digital audio file formats up to DSD512. Listen to your favourite tracks as they were meant to be.
In love with Hi-Res streaming? Listen to Tidal HiFi and Spotify Premium with ease.
The xDSD is also MQA ready straight out of the box. Use with Tidal ‘HiFi’ on your computer or mobile.
And it’s fully Roon tested for easy set-up.
The convenience of Bluetooth® means your headphones connect to the xDSD, leaving your phone or chosen device wire free. Pop the xDSD in your pocket and it’s business as usual but with much better sound.
The xDSD boasts both aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth® for CD-like quality. With standard Bluetooth®, the sound quality drops by 30%, not so with the iFi Bluetooth® implementation. Just a little iFi magic for you!
With amazing amplification, driven by 500 mW of power, the xDSD handles almost any headphones and it easily partners up with active home speakers.
And, of course, we’ve included our exclusive optional ‘sonic fine-tuning extras’ to add further nuances to your listening.
xBass+®cleans and restores the bass to give you a richer, deeper sound and 3D+® opens up your music to bring a live-concert atmosphere into your living room.
iFi’s exclusive S-Balanced technology means that you gain the advantages of a balanced connection even when using an unbalanced one.
On headphones this means lower distortion, less interference, and reduce crosstalk.
The battery lasts up to 10 hours and ‘smart’ tech ensures you enjoy optimum listening time adjusted according to your usage. The xDSD has a separate USB charging socket.
And finally, with its metallic chrome finish and elegant, ergonomic design, based upon the Japanese Zen garden, it puts the ‘x’ back into sexy.
Hi-res audio support is state-of-the-art with True Native® playback. It handles PCM data to 32-bit/768kHz, DSD up to DSD512 and single and double speed DXD.
Thanks to the Burr-Brown DAC chip’s four-channel True Native design, PCM and DSD take separate pathways – this enables DSD, as well as PCM, to remain ‘bit-perfect’ in its native form right through to analogue conversion. This is not the case with all DAC devices from other brands – even if DSD compatibility is stated, many such DACs convert DSD signals to PCM.
Connect your phone or device wirelessly via aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth®. Whatever your device, we’ve got it covered.
We use the USB Type-A connector as it provides a more stable audio connection for better playback and because of the OTG cable for Android and CCK Lightning to USB cable for Apple. The 3.5mm coaxial/TOSLINK combo SPDIF input allows connection to older DAPs and CD players.
Battery life is up to 10 hours. Charging is via the separate USB charging cable included.
The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged or ‘bit-perfect’. This means you are listening to music as the artist intended in the format in which it was recorded.
At iFi we use Burr Brown extensively in our products having selected it for its natural-sounding ‘musicality’ and True Native architecture. Our experience with this IC means we know how to make the most of it.
