"Knock-Out" Compact DAC for Home Systems
The nano iOne DAC from iFi Audio was created for audiophiles who yearn for better sound quality from their existing home systems. Excelling at DSD, DXD, and other digital formats, the iOne is neither a one-trick pony nor is it a jack-of-all-trades. It is incredibly versatile and offers cutting-edge technology with each separate function designed and implemented with as much care and dedication as they would receive in a single-function device from iFi Audio.
Whether you use Nvidia Shield, Google Chromecast or a 4K television, hook your system up to a gaming console such as the XBox One, Playstation 4 or simple enjoy music through your smartphone, tablet or computer, the iOne is the one for you. Add it to your audiophile rig to push the boundaries of high-quality sound to a whole new level. If you have a S/PDIF-only DAC, use the nano iOne DAC's USB/Bluetooth input to convert to S/PDIF output.
"The Nano iOne's broad set of successful application is impressive," reports John Darko, DigitalAudioReview.net, March 2017. "Its ability to lift the audible performance of a TV, a Macbook Air, a Sonos Connect – even the AURALiC Aries Mini – make it a proper everyman hifi product… a Knock-Out Award."
Burr-Brown True Native Chipset
The Burr-Brown True Native chipset is a MultiBit DAC that represents the 'best of the best' chipset design. This chipset handles PCM and DSD natively, so the music signal stays in its original format all the way through. No unnecessary conversions means you get the purest audio stream that you could want with no distracting additions or subtractions.
Say goodbye to sound-degrading jitter that can spoil the realism of your music. The Global Master Timing system with Femto precision clock system as found in the AMR DP-777 will completely block jitter from the source by creating a new stable clock de-linked from the source clock. The GMT ensures the iOne will stay in lock step with the correct timing all the way for the best sound quality.
Galvanically-isolated S/PDIF output with REclock/REgenerate
Forget about signal contamination. The micro iOne DAC boasts galvanic isolation for the S/PDIF connections, so you know that the fastidious iFi attention to sound quality remains. And iFi Audio's REclock/Regenerate technology ensures that the precision clocking stays all the way through the output.
Active Noise Cancellation
What more could you ask for in an ultra-compact home DAC? How about Active Noise Cancellation circuitry? Exceptionally quiet power that keeps the background to your music noise-free comes from ANC noise suppression system for the power supply (conveniently drawn from USB). The measured noise floor of the nano iOne DAC is 100-times quieter than a common noise filter.
Your Sound, Your Way
At the nano iOne DAC's output, you can connect the RCAs to an AV amplifier or headphone amplifier. But however you prefer to connect your system, the iOne has it covered, whether its via Bluetooth, USB or S/PDIF (optical/coaxial). And the audiophile quality Bluetooth implementation in the iOne allows both aptX and AAC decoding so you can listen via Apple or Android, PC or Mac with CD-like quality for the best sounding wireless playback.
