iFi Micro are about to add another unit to their already excellent Micro range. This time it’s a USB-S/PDIF converter called the iLink.
According to the press release they “analysed the complete transmission/conversion process.” Two new (trademarked) technologies – Super Digital Output® and Jitter Elimination Technology JET® have been deployed within the iLink recipe in order to best combat jitter. The USB input handles up to 24/192 data asynchronously.
iFi are boasting output jitter measurements that best Empirical Audio’s Off-Ramp:
If my superb listening experiences with the iUSBPower and iPhono (coming in TONEAudio 55) are anything to go by, the iLink will be a real winner, especially at its US$249 price point.
Australian pricing to follow. Australian price will be AU$299.
