Holy &%$&! the Micro iDSD DAC with headphone amp rocks!
Once in a Blue Moon, comes a review written with such fervour that one just cannot ignore. The fact that the micro iDSD won a Blue Note Award is fabulous in itself but the enthusiasm of this review literally jumps out at you.
“Today it is my joy to bring forward one of those great designs that meets exceeds, their customer’s ‘wants list’….
…..As a stand-alone DAC, only some crazy reviewer-type would compare the $499 iFi Audio Micro iDSD to the ~$26,600…
…As this month is Enjoy the Music.com’s annual Blue Note Awards, am sure you can already tell that the iFi Audio Micro iDSD has earned not just my highest of respect, but my personal fave award for best portable DAC/amp combo too! For only $499 the ifi Audio Micro iDSD delivers and incredible value, can handle every conceivable digital music file type today and for the foreseeable future for many years to come….
… I foresee the iFi Audio Micro iDSD unit being one of those products you will be gladly using 10 years from now. A decade from today it should still handle everything you can throw out it from modern digital music files, an external DAC, plus handle everything from custom IEMs and those hard-to-drive planar magnetic headphones too. Smart audiophiles can stop wasting their hard earned cash with typical DAC-of-the-month products and instead get a device that can keep them happily enjoying the music today and for many years to come.
Yes, we nearly spat our coffee out when we ready this.
Thank you Mr Rochlin – we didnt see the Blue Note Award and neither did we see your enthusiasm! We love it.
