Fight the future.

The micro iDAC2 is compatible with all future DSD and DXD formats, which means you won’t need to upgrade for a long time to come.

Take to the stage.

The soundstage the micro iDAC2 produces is vast, making your music appear as if it’s coming from outside the width of your speakers or the confines of your headphones.

The micro iDAC2 punches above its price class and competes with high-end DACs with ease.

This is spectacular audio at its very best.

The tech spec.

The micro iDAC2 includes:

  • DirectDrive – To create accurate sound and sonic transparency
  • TrueNative® Hi-Res Audio – To ensure your music files play in the highest resolution

Music is handled with finesse, making it come alive as it drives speakers and top-spec headphones to the max and ensures a vibrant listening experience.


Hear music as the artist intended. The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged for the truest sound.


Your music remains 'Bit-Perfectly' perfect!

The iFi 'Bit-Perfect' filter means no loss of signal. No format conversion. No resampling. It handles all formats from 16/44 through to DSD256 with finesse for the same original, high-quality sound.


The Class A stage has Pro series pedigree.

It combines N-Channel J-Fet and a PNP bi-polar transistor for a warm, unsurpassed, natural sound.


Pure and sonically tranparent sound delivered via a direct signal path.

DirectDrive® means no output coupling.


With an S/PDIF output it is able to receive a USB signal and then convert and output a digital S/PDIF signal to another device such as Sonos streamer or an A/V amplifier (with an onboard DAC).

As your system changes over time, it just simply follows suit.


Quality components speak volumes. Reference class parts quality from Japanese Elna Silmics to Silver Mica capacitors.

Nothing but the best will do.
