iFi Audio xDSD Gryphon Portable DAC & Headphone Amplifier

When it comes to portable DAC/amps, most compromise either on the digital or analog section, but not the xDSD Gryphon. This mythical marvel is like a dual beast, combining both exceptional digital and analog performance in one sleek device.

Ultimate Digital Prowess At the heart of the xDSD Gryphon lies the Ultra-Res digital stage, powered by the Burr-Brown MultiBit technology. This cutting-edge digital section ensures that your music is decoded with precision and clarity, making it the perfect partner for serious headphones.

Pure Analog Powerhouse The xDSD Gryphon doesn't stop at digital excellence; it also boasts a PureWave analogue power section that can deliver a whopping 1,000mW of power. This means it can handle even the most demanding headphones with ease, offering a dynamic and engaging listening experience.

Bluetooth Brilliance Equipped with the latest QCC 5100 series Bluetooth v5.1, the xDSD Gryphon takes wireless connectivity to the bleeding edge. It supports a wide range of Bluetooth formats, including aptX Adaptive, aptX HD, LDAC, HWA/LHDC, regular aptX, aptX Low Latency, AAC, and SBC. Each section of the wireless platform is distinct, ensuring minimal jitter and top-notch DAC conversion, giving wired connections a run for their money.

Wired to Perfection For wired connections, the xDSD Gryphon doesn't hold back either. It features a hybrid Burr-Brown DAC chipset, similar to what's used in iFi Audio's £3,000 flagship, the Pro iDSD Signature. It supports a plethora of formats, including PCM, DSD, DXD, and MQA on USB, as well as PCM and DoP on S/PDIF.

Balanced Power With its PureWave amplification circuitry, the xDSD Gryphon delivers a formidable 1,000mW at 32 Ohms, making it capable of driving high-impedance headphones effortlessly. Whether you prefer balanced or single-ended playback, the Gryphon has you covered with its 4.4mm Balanced and 3.5mm S-Balanced outputs. It even caters to high-sensitivity IEMs with the iEMatch feature, eliminating unwanted hiss.
