AC iPurifier

$ 780
The IFI AC iPurifier cleans up the dirty AC mains, detects and solves annoying mains-based EMI/RFI and Grounds/Earth issues. Exceptionally user-friendly, just insert into the audio mains/extension block for diagnostics and a 40dB or 100x or more noise reduction.

Earbuddy

$ 160
Earbuddy

Your audio will now be richer and fuller without the irritation buzz and/or hiss you experienced before. Enjoy!


Tip:

Please note that with the Ear Buddy in-line, you are able to turn up the volume on the music source far more. In extreme cases, this may cause the internal amplifier of the music source to enter into 'clipping'. If this occurs, please reduce he source volume accordingly.

IFI
Groundhog

$ 380
When you touched your device, did the hum/buzz noise increase? Well, in most cases, this is likely to be caused by a missing Ground/Earth connection that normally shields your system from such interference and drains away the noise.

Electrical safety and EMC Legislation require certain ways of designing AC power systems. This legislation does not consider audio systems and is mandatory. It can lead to the irritating issue of hum, buzz, hiss and general interference in certain systems where:

• The system includes at least one AC mains powered device or has an AC mains charger attached and it has no Ground/Earth at all
• The audio system has at least two AC mains powered devices which leads to more than one, multiple Ground/Earth connections.

Go to our Tech Specs section to check out the simple guide to diagnosing if you have a Ground/Earth issue and to discover how the Groundhog will help.

At iFi, we know how annoying unwanted noise can be. No-one enjoys a tedious listening experience. Not even Stan our Smiley Man!

If you have identified that you have a Missing/No Earth, then the Groundhog is for you. Its sole objective is to put the Ground/Earth back into your system and banish those unwanted, audio pests. No predicting the weather with this hog!
All you need to do use a standard IEC power cable to connect the Groundhog to your audio system. The Groundhog then adds back the missing Ground/Earth connection to dissipate noise.

Our Groundhog is multi-talented as it includes a variety of connections to suit just about any audio system.
• RCA base cable – for any audio system with an unused RCA socket.
IEC (Earth pin only) to RCA (male)

• USB converter – for a computer audio system. Just connect to a spare USB port.
USB to RCA (female)

• Spade converter – for power supplies with a DC barrel connector.
DC Spade to RCA (female)

• 3.5mm Y-converter – for portable devices with an unused 3.5mm connection.
3.5mm to RCA (female)

iDefender USB 3.0

$ 380
The iDefender3.0® protects against the common problems of ground loop noise and noisy USB power:
1. Breaks noisy ground-loops. Significantly reduces system noise floor and makes for better dynamic contrast, warmth and resolution
2. Disconnects the USB Power from the PC and replaces it with a clean external power (optional iPower* 5V for ultra low noise)
3. USB3.0 port technology – most advanced and highest USB specification

To be used directly at the Source such as the PC usb port, it breaks ground loops and cuts the noisy USB power line. From computer audiophiles, musicians, home studio artists to pro audio customers, it improves audio playback quality at home and on-the-go.

For DACs that require USB power, to obtain the best sonic performance, the iPower 5V is recommended to supply the iDefender3.0®.

IFI
iSilencer USB 3.0

$ 380
The iSilencer3.0® is an instant upgrade for all USB ports; it adds the following features to the USB ports:

1. Active Noise Cancellation® technology
2. Reduce jitter + packet errors
3. REbalance® the USB signal
4. USB3.0 technology for optimal transfer

The iSilencer3.0® is the most direct and simple upgrade for any USB port, it lowers noise/RFI/EMI by up to 40dB or 100x.

It is ideal for the home and on-the-go improvement of all devices connected to the USB port, e.g. Computer Servers, Mixers, Hard drives etc. Regardless of the system; from US$10,000 to US$100, the iSilencer3.0® terminates noise, in its tracks.

DC iPurifier

$ 780
With trickle-down technology from Abbingdon Music Research (AMR), the very latest product from iFi is the DC iPurifier; a noise-cancellation product aimed to enhance the existing, ubiquitous Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS).

Generic SMPS designs are very noisy because they were never intended for audiophile applications.

The DC iPurifier sits in-between the SMPS and the device such as; router, DAC, set top box, media streamer, laptop or desk mixer. And with the latest Active Noise Cancellation® technology, from 5 volts all the way up to 24 volts (up to 3.5 amps) the DC iPurifier sharply reduces noise to improve the quality of the device.

iPurifier 2
USB-A

$ 950
The USB audio platform is well-established, yet as with any audio transmission protocol, unwanted factors hinder the audio quality. iFi’s obsession with ‘cleaning up’ the USB audio chain drawn from the knowledge base of AMR. As early as 2012, iFi invented the first USB power regenerator – the iUSB Power. This was swiftly followed by professional USB audio cables – the Mercury and Gemini. Later came the USB audio filter – the original iPurifier. Fast-forward to 2015 and we now have the iPurifier 2.

Most effective at the end (rather than the beginning) of the ‘digital USB audio chain’ the iPurifier 2 cleans up the USB transmission. There is an iPurifier 2 perfectly suited to every DAC.

iPurifier

$ 900
The USB transmission standard was not designed for high-quality audio: audio/power/ground are all ‘lumped into one’ cable for printers, hard-disk drives and the like. In the pursuit of the highest-quality of USB audio playback, this is akin to placing dedicated audio interconnects and high-current power cables together, which is clearly far from ideal.

Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) issues inevitably arise, characterised by a harsh, edgy sound.

The iPurifier does one job and one job only; it cleans and filters audio + power at the end of the digital chain; just prior to the digital signal entering the DAC .

The specially-designed circuit restores the ‘signal waveform’ and puts the ‘analogue’ back into USB audio for a true, life-like presentation.

Future-proofed, it is able to handle high-resolution PCM/DSD and DXD at all levels. A: all DACs gain a sonic uplift.

SPDIF iPurifier

$ 1,080
From Apple TV to Google Chromecast to PS4/ Xbox to 4K Smart TVs, SPDIF is the main digital audio output .

As with all mainstream products, the critical SPDIF signal transmitted is of fairly low quality. The SPDIF iPurifier runs the SPDIF signal through 4 comprehensive stages; the result is sound quality that has greater warmth, resolution and dynamic contrast.

The SPDIF iPurifier is 'Bit-Perfect,' the signal remains original (no over/upsampling), so it is compatible with DTS, Dolby Digital and DoP signals, as well as offering full HD support up to 192KHz.

IFI
iEMatch

$ 380
The iEMatch® solves the bane of headphone listening by removing hiss and improving dynamics. As most IEMs and headphones are too loud at even half the volume level, listening enjoyment is always curtailed. No more with the iEMatch® in the signal path.

Use the iEMatch® when the headphones/in-ear monitor (IEM) is either too loud and/or there is excessive hiss from the music source. From Smartphones to airplane in-flight entertainment systems, powerful headphone amplifiers, the iEMatch® improves musical enjoyment by:

1. Background noise – significantly reduced
2. Dynamic range – more open, transparent
3. Volume control – increased usable range

The solution? Add the iEMatch® in-between the headphone and the amplifier. Set to high or ultra-sensitivity, sit back and enjoy the music.

NOS 6922

$ 930
Stemming from the R&D work into the development of the micro iTUBE, the NOS6922 matched tube pair is another ‘atypical’ product from iFi that significantly improves the audio experience. For any tube/valve audio product from amplifiers to CD players that use the common 6922 tube/valve, the premium NOS 6922 matched pair set is a straight ‘drop-in’ replacement.*

What is it?

The NOS 6922 tube/valve matched pair is a higher-quality replacement set for just about every audio component that currently uses the 6922.
