[Impression] iFi Audio iDAC, iCAN, iUSB Power – Trio of Goodness

iFi Audio is a new comer in the headphone amp scene, but it does share the same bloodline as the renowned U.K. based premium audiophiles brand AMR. While AMR already has some top end gears to offer to the speaker and full rig owner, its little sister brand seems to aim toward mainly the computer based headphone user as well as minimalist audiophiles. Their current ‘Micro’ line of devices includes the iDAC (headphone amp + USB DAC with line-out), iCAN (headphone amp), iUSB Power (USB isolator), iPhono (phone preamp) and the recently released iLink (USB to S/PDIF converter). We will cover the former three here, which are priced at US$299, US$249 and US$199 respectively (*price do vary quite a bit depends on region though).

[REVIEW] AudioFly AF45

I lived in Australia a few years back. If anything, it is not just a continent full of deserts, but also for barren land for audiophile. Good stores with great gears are few and far between, and only make worst by their usual higher-than-international price tag. Yet, it is this land that AudioFly is born and takes the world by surprise. Here we take a look at AF45, which is more of a lower end (*but not the lowest) model in their whole line-up.

[Impression] FireStone Audio Fireye HD and Fireye Mini

Over the years, FireStone Audio has made its name with high quality small form factor desktop headphone amp and DAC. In fact, my very first desktop amp is the company’s Little Country 2 hybrid OTL amp. Recently, they also venture into the world of portable amp. Here we take a look at some of their latest offering, the Fireye HD and Mini, priced at US$399 and US$38 respectively.
