NEO. The new wave of digital sound. Bleeding-edge Bluetooth. MQA decoding. Balanced.
The DAC/amp. Reloaded. The iFi Audio NEO iDSD is iFi Audio's new 3-in-one DAC/amp. With balanced ‘PureWave’ circuitry, unbeatable hi-res Bluetooth5.0 and MQA, it is the ultimate in hi-res playback. Place it horizontally or vertically to suit its surroundings. The OLED display flips to match orientation. One rotary knob controls functionality. Sleek, sophisticated and versatile.
Movies and Gaming "Upsampled"
Love your music but also love movies and gaming? The NEO iDSD Performance Edition from iFi Audio will enhance your movie and gameplay experience even further.
Add the included S/PDIF iPurifier2 to make movie or game audio match the amazing picture quality of your 4K TV. Feel more immersed than ever before as sound finally matches picture in spectacular fashion. Pair the NEO with the PS4 or Xbox One X for the ultimate gaming experience.
The Burr-Brown DAC chipset still fuels the NEO‘s ‘digital engine’. But we’ve upgraded it up with a new 16-core, XMOS microcontroller that processes the data via USB and S/PDIF digital inputs. Double the clock-speed. Four times the memory.
Since it’s original release we’ve added more digital filters for your listening pleasure. The NEO iDSD now comes with the GTO, Minimum Phase, Bit-Perfect and Standard filters. Add in jitter eradication including our GMT femto-precision clock, intelligent memory buffer and the newly included iPurifier3 and super smooth listening is yours.
iFi 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 impressive range on Bluetooth 5.0.
Ride the "PureWave"
Not only is the NEO iDSD a purist design – no DSP, no digital filter selection and no change in analogue playback – it is also all designed around a balanced circuit design named ‘PureWave‘.
It uses audiophile-grade components and delivers sonic ‘purity’ thanks to the extraordinarily low levels of noise and distortion.
Power and Poise
The headphone amp stage maintains an engaging balance between sonic power and poise – no matter what it is tasked to drive. From high-sensitivity in-ear monitors to current-hungry planar headphones, it drives them with aplomb.
It has a continuous power output of over 1000mW into 32ohms available through the balanced headphone socket. Plenty of oomph for the headphone user.
Just More Music
The NEO iDSD and the new Performance Edition contain top-notch audio components to back-up the outstanding balanced circuit design. Quality components and the Performance Edition extras – the iPurifier3 and S/PDIF iPurifier2 – mean audio with even more clarity and texture. Plus as a NEOphile, new or old, you can benefit from a 90-day free trial to Qobuz – the world’s premier service for streaming and downloading music is Hi-Res sound quality.
