iFi Audio - 'NEO iDSD'
Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amp

ifi audio neo idsd

The New Wave of Digital SoundThe iFi NEO iDSD is a pure DAC. You can connect it to a separate integrated amp or preamp using the fixed-level analogue output. Or as a DAC/preamp with a variable output. The ideal company for a power amp or active speakers. Headphone users will love using the excellent amp stage to create an incredible ‘head-fi’ system.

The Burr-Brown DAC chipset still fuels the NEO‘s ‘digital engine’. But iFi have enhanced it with a new 16-core, XMOS microcontroller which processes the data using USB and S/PDIF digital inputs. Double the clock-speed. Four times the memory. Add in jitter eradication including GMT femto-precision clock, intelligent memory buffer and our GTO filter as standard, and you’ve got an incredibly powerful DAC.

The NEO iDSD comes with high-end audio components to back-up the phenomenal balanced circuit design. Even the OLED SilentLine display is designed to guarantee there is no electrical noise to distrupt with the audio signal as it switches itself off when not in use. Quality components allow for more clarity and texture, and a more engaging performance. You can hear things you’ve never noticed before.

Amazing Features • Balanced, differential analogue circuit design reduces noise and cross-talk
• MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is supported through the USB and S/PDIF inputs
• The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged or ‘bit-perfect’
• Hi-res audio support is state-of-the-art with True Native® playback
• Bleeding-edge Bluetooth, MQA decoding, Balanced

The DAC/Amp Reloaded

ifi audio neo idsd

3-In-OneThe NEO iDSD is a 3-in-one DAC/amp, with balanced ‘PureWave’ circuitry, unmatchable hi-res Bluetooth5.0 and MQA, it is the ultimate in hi-res playback.

It can be place horizontally or vertically to fit into its surroundings. The OLED display flips to match its set up. One rotary knob controls functionality keeping it sleek, complex and versatile.

All Games Played

Enjoy Music & GamingLove your music but also love gaming? The NEO iDSD will enhance your current or next-gen gameplay. Making you feel more immersed than ever before as sound finally matches picture fantastically. Pair it with new the PS5 or Xbox Series X for the best possible gaming experience.

Hi-Res Heaven

ifi audio neo idsd

Full Audio PotentialThe NEO iDSD supports PCM up to 32-bit/768kHz, DSD up to 512 and DXDx2. All remain ‘bit-perfect’. The NEO delivers full MQA decoding to guarantee the best possible sound quality.

Bleeding-Edge Bluetooth

ifi audio neo idsd

Impressive RangeiFi uses Qualcomm’s new QCC5100 Bluetooth processing IC. All current high-definition Bluetooth audio formats are supported – aptx, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, aptX LL, LDAC, HWA/LHDC, AAC and SBC. The NEO iDSD ‘remembers’ up to 7 devices and has astounding range on Bluetooth 5.0.

Ride The ‘PureWave’

ifi audio neo idsd

Low Noise & DistortionThe NEO iDSD is not only a purist design, no DSP, no digital filter selection and no change in analogue playback, it is also all engineered around a balanced circuit design named ‘PureWave‘.

It uses audiophile-grade components and offers sonic ‘purity’ thanks to the incredibly low levels of noise and distortion.

Power & Poise

ifi audio neo idsd

Continuous PowerThe headphone amp stage maintains an enabling balance between sonic power and poise, no matter what it is set to drive. From high-sensitivity in-ear monitors to current-hungry planar headphones, it drives them with confidence.

It comes with a continuous power output of over 1000mW into 32ohms available through the balanced headphone socket. Plenty of power for headphone users.

Advanced Integrated Technology

jitter eradication

Jitter-Eradication TechnologiesExtensive jitter-eradication technologies are applied to the digital stage, including our GMT (Global Master Timing) femto-precision clock and intelligent memory buffer. This represents a total ‘out-of-the-box’ systematic digital solution that solves jitter once and for all.

custom OV Series operational-amplifier

Custom OV Series Operational-AmplifierAs with many other iFi audio products, we’ve incorporated a custom OV Series operational-amplifier. This top-notch component contributes to the extremely low noise, low distortion (0.0001%) and wide bandwidth.

texas instruments low-noise ICs

Texas Instruments Low-Noise ICsTexas Instruments low-noise ICs offer great unity-gain bandwidth, very low noise and distortion, high output drive capability, Common-mode and Power Supply Rejection Ratios of over 100 dB, wide maximum-output-swing bandwidths and high slew rates.

FET based switching

FET-Based SwitchingSwitching between settings has been engineered to ensure sonic transparency with advanced trench technology MOSFET is used as a muting switch. This FET-based switching is handled by a micro-controller, which only ‘wakes up’ when the user changes a setting, thus eradicating any sonically deleterious interference.
