Hi-Fi system that fits in your pocket

High-quality high-resolution DAC + powerful balanced headphone amplifier。

Powerful performance is here

Usually portable DACs/AMPs tend to focus on better digital or better analog modes and not both顧。

But it's not all like that our xDSD Gryphon is so unique like the mythical griffin made of two animals in one物合而為一。

From the ultra-high-resolution digital stage of Burr-Brown multi-bit core chip with PureWave's up to 1000mW analog output power xDSD Gryphon can face the challenges of all kinds of headphones挑戰。

Good connection Digital source via USBS/PDIF or Bluetooth Analog source via 4.4mm or 3.5mm input源。

Excellent transfer method

  • Separate Bluetooth + DAC + Amplification Stages Each stage is optimized for maximum performance能
  • Digital signal input via USBS/PDIF or Bluetooth號
  • Analog signal can be input via 4.4mm or 3.5mm

Brilliant bluetooth high quality wireless listening聽。

Using the latest QCC 5100 series Bluetooth v5.1 as a starting point for wireless connectivity xDSD Gryphon is at the forefront of support when it comes to the latest formats前沿。

  • aptX Adaptive and aptX HD
  • Regular AptX and Low Latency AptX
  • AAC
  • SBC ordinary bluetooth牙)

Not only that, but every part of the iFi digital processing platform is different.別的。

Qualcomm QC5100 chip for receiving > Global Master Clock for dealing with digital signal jitter > Burr-Brown for DAC conversion。

Segmentation like this takes a lot more effort to achieve, but that's why our wireless technology is as popular as wired technology.技術。

The best USB & S/PDIF and wired support

For wired connectivity the xDSD Gryphon uses the same Burr-Brown DAC chipset as our flagship Pro iDSD Signature product組。

The following formats can be supported. The most important thing is that their supportability has been pushed to the peak.頂峰


  • PCM (768/705.6/384/352.8/192/176.4/96/88.2/48/44.1 kHz)
  • DSD (512/256/128/64)
  • DXD (768/705.6/384/352.8kHz)
  • MQADecoderr)


  • PCM (192/176.4/96/88.2/48/44.1 kHz)
  • DoP

Balanced drive

The xDSD Gryphon uses a PureWave amplifier circuit with a maximum power output of 1,000mW at 32 ohm impedance and has an output voltage of up to 6.7v, making the xDSD Gryphon easy to use with high impedance headphones, which is enough to drive a variety of headphones 4.4mm balanced output is used Best Play Picks for佳播放選擇。

3.5mm S-Balanced (balanced/single-ended full compatibility) will maximize the full performance of your single-ended headphones。

Don't worry if you use high-sensitivity in-ear headphones because the xDSD Gryphon has IEMatch built into it其中。

A Hearing Experience Tailored to Your Ears

XSpace brings back expansive soundstage in recordings。

XBass II restores the bass that was missing in open-back headphones or creates the bass punch you crave. Under XBass II you can choose Bass Bass and/or Presence to properly add mid-to-high frequencies to your favorite recordings確地添加到你喜歡的錄音中。

iEMatch is our patented technology that reduces the annoying hiss of high sensitivity headphones without losing any dynamic range態範圍。

For digital sources the user can select from three custom digital filters via an on-screen menu: Bit-PerfectStandard and GTOGibbs Transient Optimised, each with fine-tuning effects on the sound音有微調效果。

OLED is seen but not heard聞

The combination of the OLED display and iFi's CyberSync operating system ushered in a brand new user interface Everything from formats to battery life is here這裡。

Equally important, the SilentLine technology means the display screen doesn't add noise to the system and it can even be set to off if you wish為關閉。

We used Qualcomm's new QCC5100 Bluetooth processing chip combined with proprietary circuitry to create a great-sounding Bluetooth engine引擎”。

Supports all current high-resolution Bluetooth audio formats: Qualcomm's aptX Adaptive and aptX HD, Sony's LDAC and HWA, LHDC, regular aptX and aptX, Low Latency, AAC, Apple iOS devices, and SBC, regular Bluetooth codecs通 “藍牙編解碼器)。

In 24-bit codecs aptX Adaptive and aptX HD support up to 48kHz and LDAC and LHDC up to 96kHz iFi's Bluetooth engine can also be updated over the air so codecs can be added in the future增加編解碼器。

Burr-Brown True Native chipset means file formats remain unchanged or bit-perfectct”。

This means you are listening to the music in the recorded format as the artist intended。

At iFi we use Burr Brown extensively in our products because of its natural musicality and true native architecture Our experience with this IC means we know how to get the most out of it充分利用它。

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording音。

It is a superior method than the traditional single-ended circuit method to balance the circuit to reduce noise and crosstalk擾。

Fewer distractions, clearer sound音。

You would normally find this setup in pricier products like the Pro iCAN but iFi is now using this approach across its entire range to provide the best possible sound quality for all of our customers音品質。

iFi's exclusive S-Balanced technology debuts in the original Pro iCAN。

Since then it has become an important feature of the entire iFi range and is an integral part of the xDSD Gryphon部分。

It gets maximum performance from both single-ended and balanced headphones S-Balanced single-ended compatible balanced 3.5mm headphone output provides the benefits of a balanced connection for single-ended headphones的好處。

“Negative feedback is used in amplifier circuits to compare the output signal with the input signal and correct errors to control gain and reduce distortion失真。

This is a positive but universally applied one-size-fits-all for sound quality. Global negative feedback also highlights different issues while addressing other issues. Error signals corruption, phase shift, group delay, etc. can negatively affect sound quality.音質產生負面影響。

We recognized that different parts of the circuit could benefit from a specially optimized receptive loop and developed a more accurate negative receptive system than usual methods系統。

This incorporates multiple loopback paths instead of one global loop. Each path is optimized for a specific function and works in tandem with the other paths to provide the best overall performance整體性能。

The balanced differential analog circuit design has long been championed for its ability to reduce noise and crosstalk within the signal path by completely separating the left and right channels音和串擾。

PureWave is a new balanced symmetrical dual mono topology with a short and direct signal path. The name refers to the sonic purity it achieves thanks to excellent linearity and infinitely low noise and distortion levels.和失真水平。

The OLED of the xDSD Gryphon features a SilentLine design which ensures that no electronic noise interferes with the sound signal號。

The way it switches between settings has been designed to ensure sound transparency. FET-based switching is handled by a microcontroller. It only wakes up when the user changes settings, eliminating any disruptive sound interference.聲音的干擾。

CyberSync is a software-driven volume control that operates in the analog realm. It syncs very differently to any digital source the xDSD Gryphon is connected to.不同。

It provides perfect volume synchronization between the source and the DAC. It can detect the OS, iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS, or Linux to which the DAC is connected and instruct the source's OS to bypass its software volume control.過其軟體音量控制。

Whether the volume is adjusted with the xDSD Gryphon's rotary control or on the source device, CyberSync ensures that changes are made entirely by the Gryphon's superior analog control chip and the adjustment results are displayed on the source device's screen結果。

Different operating systems and applications have different volume curves but CyberSync ensures perfect synchronization between source device and DAC every time步。
