Portable DAC/Amp

iFi Audio - xDSD Gryphon

'A hi-fi system in your pocket' Portable DAC/amps tend to be compromised because they focus on a great digital OR a great analogue section. But not both. iFi's xDSD Gryphon is different. Just like its mythical namesake, it is two beasts in one.

From the Ultra-Res digital stage using the Burr-Brown MultiBit at the core to the PureWave analogue power section pumping out 1,000mW and other things in-between, it takes serious headphones to tame the Gryphon.

Well-connected iFi's xDSD Gryphon offers a wealth of options when it comes to connectivity. xDSD Gryphon boasts Separate Bluetooth + DAC + amp stages: each optimised for maximum performance, Digital sources via USB, S/PDIF or Bluetooth alongside Analogue sources via 4.4mm or 3.5mm inputs.

What's included? • xDSD Gryphon
• USB to USB C cable
• USB C to USB C cable
• USB C to Lightning cable
• Drawstring bag
• Warranty
• Manual

Brilliant Bluetooth. Hi-Res Wireless.

all the latest formats accomodatedUsing the latest QCC 5100 series Bluetooth v5.1 as the starting point, for wireless connectivity, the xDSD Gryphon is at the bleeding-edge when it comes to the latest formats:

• aptX Adaptive and aptX HD
• LDAC and HWA/LHDC
• regular aptX and aptX Low Latency
• AAC
• SBC (plain vanilla Bluetooth)

Not only this but the above is on the iFi digital platform where each section is distinct. So QC5100 for reception > Global Master Clock for jitter > Burr-Brown for DAC conversion. More effort but that’s why our wireless gives wired a run for its money.

Balance of PowerThe xDSD Gryphon uses our PureWave amplification circuitry. It has 1,000mW at 32 Ohms. With a whopping max 6.7v output, bring on the high impedance headphones because the Gryphon will not break a sweat driving them.

This is plenty to drive all manner of headphones. The 4.4mm Balanced is the best for balanced playback. The 3.5mm S-Balanced will max SE headphones. And your premium high-sensitivity IEMs have not been forgotten either – iEMatch will cut out the hiss.

Wired To The Nines

iFi Audio - xDSD Gryphon

USB & S/PDIFIn terms of wired connectivity, the xDSD Gryphon handles all the formats using a hybrid Burr-Brown DAC chipset which is the same as used in our £3,000 flagship, the Pro iDSD Signature.

Rest assured that all the following latest formats are catered for but most importantly, are pushed to their zenith.

On USB • PCM (768/705.6/384/352.8/192/176.4/96/88.2/48/44.1 kHz)
• DSD (512/256/128/64)
• DXD (768/705.6/384/352.8kHz)
• MQA (Decoder)

On S/PDIF • PCM (192/176.4/96/88.2/48/44.1 kHz)
• DoP

Tailored To Your Ears

iFi Audio - xDSD Gryphon

how you like it!XSpace adds back the cavernous sound stage of recordings.

XBass II reinstates the missing bass from open-backed headphones or for recordings that you hanker for bass slam. Under XBass II you can select ‘Bass’ and/or ‘Presence’ so that the upper midrange frequencies are correctly added back into your favourite recording.

iEMatch – is our proprietary tech which reduces the annoying hiss from high-sensitivity headphones without losing any dynamic range.

With digital sources, users can choose between three bespoke digital filters via the on-screen menu: Bit-Perfect, Standard and GTO (Gibbs Transient Optimised), each having a fine-tuning effect on sound.
