iFi nano iOne compact DAC

The nano iOne from iFi is designed to be a convenient, high-quality digital audio hub – a DAC that is small in size yet big on features and performance. It can be used to boost sound from all manner of digital devices: smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs, TVs, games consoles, media streamers and more. It offers wireless connectivity over Bluetooth and has USB and S/PDIF digital inputs.

The unit can be connected to an integrated amp, pre-amp, headphone amp or active speakers via its RCA analogue outputs. It can also be used to add USB and Bluetooth connectivity to an existing DAC.

Key features include:

  • 32-bit DAC, fully certified for hi-res audio – supports PCM/DXD up to 384kHz and DSD up to 12.4MHz
  • Bluetooth, asynchronous USB and S/PDIF (coaxial/optical) digital inputs; S/PDIF (coaxial) digital output; direct-coupled RCA analogue outputs
  • Bluetooth 4.0 wireless streaming; supports aptX and AAC codecs over Bluetooth (AAC facilitates premium-quality Bluetooth streaming for iOS devices, which do not support aptX); 10m+ range (360 degrees, line of sight)
  • Zero Jitter Memory Buffer technology for all digital input signals – Bluetooth, S/PDIF and asynchronous USB
  • S/PDIF socket doubles as both coaxial and optical flavours of digital input, as well as coaxial digital output, thus saving rear panel space
  • Galvanically isolated S/PDIF input/output with FET High Definition (FHD) circuitry on the input and dedicated re-clocker/line driver on the output
  • GMT (Global Master Timing) Femto precision clock system eliminates jitter by creating a new, stable clock de-linked from the source clock
  • Burr-Brown ‘True Native’ DAC chipset handles PCM and DSD natively – music signal stays in its original format throughout to maintain purity
  • Active Noise Cancellation for the power supply (via the USB socket) dramatically lowers the noise floor
  • Two digital filter options: ‘Listen’ and ‘Measure’
  • Powered via USB (5v USB power supply is included)
  • RRP £199
