INTEGRATING XMEMS TECHNOLOGY ALONG WITH BLUETOOTH 5.4 CONNECTIVITY

The predecessor of Diablo 2 pioneered the integration of xMEMS solid-state micro-speaker technology, revolutionising IEM and headphone performance with distinctive advantages. Recognising the high voltage demands of xMEMS, iFi has collaborated with them to incorporate this technology into the new Diablo 2. Leveraging the piezoelectric effect, xMEMS creates ultra-thin solid-state speakers by transforming electrical energy into mechanical energy, activating an integrated silicon membrane to produce robust acoustic sound waves, elevating the overall audio output. Diablo 2 adopts the latest Bluetooth 5.4 technology, endorsing the new aptX Lossless codec with a maximum bitrate of 1,200kbps. Powered by Qualcomm’s advanced QCC518x Bluetooth audio chip, certified for Bluetooth 5.4, it supports a comprehensive range of Bluetooth formats, including aptX Lossless, aptX Adaptive, aptX, LDAC, LHDC/HWA, AAC, and SBC.

CAREFULLY ENGINEERED CIRCUITRY WITH QUALITY COMPONENTS FOR CLEAN SOUND

The iFi Audio Diablo 2 is meticulously designed with premium components for an optimised music-listening experience. Advanced trench technology MOSFET serves as a muting switch, controlled by a micro-controller, ensuring seamless transitions between settings without sonic interference. TDK C0G capacitors minimise distortion, approaching the theoretical ideal of pure capacitance. Vishay MELF resistors offer exceptional accuracy and stability with low noise. Panasonic OS-CON capacitors (5,410uF) provide low ESR, excellent noise reduction, and consistent frequency response, even in low temperatures. Texas Instruments low-noise ICs contribute to unity-gain bandwidth and minimal distortion. muRata control-type capacitors offer effective noise suppression with notable 'ESR control'.

VERSATILE OPERATION WITH THE CHOICE TO RUN BATTERY-POWERED OR ON MAINS

The iFi Audio Diablo 2 offers versatile power options, allowing it to be powered by either a battery or mains. While battery power ensures clean and stable DC, avoiding issues associated with mains electricity, it can introduce sonic downsides such as low output voltage and inconsistent impedance as the battery discharges. To address this, the included iPower2 power supply features Active Noise Cancellation II, effectively eliminating EMI and RFI noise, making it more than 10 times quieter than typical audiophile power supplies. Additionally, for less efficient headphones like planar magnetics, a step-up converter is used to increase the voltage from 3.7V to +/- 15V, operating at a frequency beyond audibility and ensuring high linearity with ultra-low noise.

"If you want to experience what xMEMS is capable of, or what lossless Bluetooth could sound like, then I would say that’s worth the higher price depending on the headphones you’re looking to pair it with."

"If you own a bunch of cans and IEMs with varying impedances, you can rest assured that the Diablo 2 will comfortably drive them all. So, especially if you plan on investing in only one DAC/amp, maybe this should be it."
