True Native

The digital to analog conversion stage of the HIP DAC is based on a Burr-Brown DAC chip already used many times in iFi Audio products for its fluidity, its 'musical' reproduction and its True Native architecture.

MQA

This Burr-Brown chip, combined with the iFi Audio circuits, allows the HIP DAC to deliver beautiful sound reproduction in all digital formats, including PCM Bit Perfect, Native DSD or MQA!

Hi-Res Audio

PCM and DXD Hi-Res files are supported up to 384kHz sample rates and DSD up to DSD256. The sides of the volume knob have a color changing LED to indicate the format and sample rate during playback.

Jitter-free

Built-in clock lock technology eliminates jitter, using a femto-precision GMT clock to maintain the integrity of the digital signal until it is converted to analog. The HIP DAC's USB supports streams up to 32bit 384kHz and the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed standard as well as USB 2.0 for full compatibility. Transmission is asynchronous, meaning that the stream is regulated by the HIP DAC's clock circuit for greater accuracy.

Exclusive firmware

The XMOS USB interface, processing the audio data received from the USB input, is programmed by iFi Audio. This custom firmware allows better audio signal processing. In addition, the HIP DAC can be adapted to your listening experience by installing different iFi Audio exclusive firmware, which has different filters, such as the GTO filter of the iFi Audio iDSD Pro.

Balanced design

The HIP DAC takes advantage of a balanced amplifier circuit, which drastically reduces noise in the signal path. For the design of this stage, iFi audio worked with John Curl, known in the audiophile world for his high quality circuits, in order to offer a listening experience of exceptional quality.

Balanced Performance

The amplifier stage also incorporates an adjustable gain level, called PowerMatch. This feature allows the gain to be adapted according to the impedance of the headphones used, adjusting the input sensitivity and thus the strength of the signal. For example, with high-sensitivity in-ear headphones, the PowerMatch function at its lowest level results in an extremely low noise level. When listening with high impedance headphones, activating PowerMatch increases the gain for a higher output level.

The HIP DAC offers 2 headphone outputs: the first one is a 3.5mm jack for a single-ended link and the second one is a 4.4mm Pentaconn jack, allowing a connection with a balanced headphone and thus to take advantage of the balanced architecture of the HIP DAC.

In addition, the 3.5mm jack output benefits from proprietary S-Balanced technology, significantly reducing crosstalk and distortion for use with unbalanced headphones. A particularly useful feature with in-ear headphones.

XBass

This function, which can be switched on or off, increases the level of the low frequencies without muffling the mid-range frequencies. This technology is particularly convenient for use with open earphones or headphones, which may lack bass. This processing is carried out directly on the analog circuit.

USB Ports

The HIP DAC has 2 USB ports: a USB-A for audio data and a USB-C for charging the device. The USB-A connector is a male connector, allowing a better mechanical resistance than a female connector or a Micro USB. This port is also compatible with the iPhone and iPad through the use of an Apple Lightning to USB Camera adapter (not included), without the need for an additional USB female to male adapter.

Battery

The 2200mAh Lithium-Polymer battery offers a significant autonomy of 8 to 12 hours in reading, depending mainly on the level of listening volume and the impedance of the connected headphones.

Note : this device only has a partial standby mode and its battery will deplete after a while, even when not used.

un excellent rapport qualité/prix
j'ai utilisé le HIP DAC raccordé à un MAC, un IPAD et un téléphone Android pour des fichiers au format ALAC ou MP3; cela a été vraiment plug and play dans tous les cas, bravo! Comme casque, j'ai utilisé un Sennheiser HH800S d'une impédance de 300 Ohms: pas de soucis de niveau sonore, même en asymétrique, et une qualité sonore étonnante dans le style bien droit et détaillé.

Avis d'un néophytes ^^
Étant mon premier DAC je ne peut pas vraiment être objectif mais cest que je peux dire c'est que j'ai redécouvert mes morceaux il est précis et l'ouverture de scène qu'il apporte est gigantesque (de mon point de vue de débutant^^) il y à un peut trop de basse a mon gout mais je suis un psychopathe du son neutre donc bon... Rien a redire pour moi à si les leds sont sensé changer de couleur en fonction du type de fichier du coup j'ai essayé un fichier en mQa pour le voir s'illuminer d'un magenta mais la couleur n'a pas changé.
