ENHANCE YOUR DC POWER SUPPLY WITH THE UPGRADED IFI AUDIO IPOWER2
Do you experience underlying noise in your audio setup? It could be simply a noise power supply. Upgrade to the iFi Audio iPower2 to deliver your devices with ultra-quiet, ultra-clean audiophile-grade power. iPower2 actively detects and removes unwanted electrical noise introduced by noisy stock wall warts or plugs to provide a steadier and more reliable direct current to your devices. iPower2 can be used with devices like turntables, media streamers, phono stages, routers, DACs, audio interfaces, and even LED lighting for studio photos.
MILITARY-GRADE ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION AND IMPROVED NOISE SUPPRESSION
Enjoy clear audio and more defined digital video with iPower2’s Active Noise Cancellation II technology. This tech is derived from military applications that act similarly to noise-cancelling headphones by measuring and inverting the signal from your power supply to create a super quiet noise floor and to filter out spurious frequencies that would interfere or muddy your entertainment experience. The new iPower2 boasts improved components and thicker gauge wiring to deliver improved output/input noise suppression. It is 10 times quieter than most audiophile power supplies and will feed your system’s circuits with ultra-quiet, clean power at both the input and the output stages.

iFi Audio offers the iPower2 in 5V, 9V, 12V, and 15V versions to provide power options for most common audiophile equipment's such as a DAC, music streamer or router, or even a guitar pedal.

Really good sturdy power supply, it output 5v and 2.5amp very near to laptop usb power.
It came with really good accessories set for all kind of port really nice inclusion.
It did not created he magic other says like better dynamics and darker background. I did not feel anything or any difference. I was using IFI zen combo to test with sundara, some good iems like fiio fh3 and Blessing2. As comparison i used the my phone mi charger which output 5v/3amp. I did not felt any difference may be people are noticing the improvement were using the laptop or pc as source of power or i do not understand how my 400 rupee phone charger sound similar/ same as this 5000 rupee power supply.
I guess this would more usefull to people who have very noisy ear and money is only thing that clear that noise and may be i am also one of them 👍
But this is very usefull in term of versatility because of the all the connectors/adapter included.
This may be useful for people who want to upgrade from noisy source of power like usb output of laptop or desktop, but any phone charger with 5v out can do the same, or may be the headphone and iem i heard are not sensitive enough to pick noise so i did not noticed in either case.
Again thanks HPz for making this rare gems available in India, really grateful.
Purchased this PSU for my Allo Katana DAC playing marantz Sr 8012 2 Channel music the sound stage was much pleasant and with more clarity
I never thought of getting this power supply for my Zen DAC v2 .But I gave it a shot .After upgrading my Zen DAC with this power supply the sound was much cleaner and imo the sound stage is improved a bit .Definitely the firmware for Zen DAC has to be upgraded with GTO filter which basically up samples the source to 350khz to get the most of the Zen DAC.
I bought the iFi Audio - iPower2 to use with the RME ADI-2 FS DAC more out of a need to tick the box than actual necessity or hope for an improvement in sound. RME’s manual clearly states that there is no need to upgrade the power supply, and rightly so because there has been no noticeable improvement in sound. But I have the iPower for the Zen Blue and the iPurifier for my amplifier, and so I ticked the box. The 5 stars are, therefore, for Headphone Zone and the great experience it is purchasing equipment from them.
I use the ipower for my zen dac. Previously, I had a cheap 5v, 5amp standard powersupply and the difference in quality and power supply is quite clear. Ipower is much cleaner and much more impactful. If you're serious about audio resolution and dynamic range, Zen dac is incomplete without this power supply.
Hey Prasanth, We are happy to see that the iFi Audio - iPower is making a difference to your listening experience. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!
Used it for media converter which converts signal from copper to fibre between NAS and SOTM switch. Video was more detailed, clarity enhanced, brightness improved, and contrast/edges smoother and cleaner. Voices more intelligible. I'm 68, and normally need to use subtitles....in most cases that is not necessary now.
For music - level of improvement was similar. There are a few other Linear Power Supplies in my system. This is the first hi quality switching one. Dynamics, distortion of backstage items, separation all now much enhanced.
Caveat: not sure how this would compare to an equivalent LPS, the improvement described above was from a cheap wall wart to the iPower. Hope to make a direct comparison one of these days. But at this price point it's excellent. When you consider the potential advantage an SMPS can offer over an LPS, one did not expect so much improvement at $50. SOULUTION offer switching supplies in their top of the line equipment for 20K 😁😁
Thank you so much for sharing your review with us.
I bought two ifi ipower2 power supplies one for my ifi zen dac v2 and one for ifi zen can. is it worth upgrading normal power supply with ipower2 ?
yes, it is. i have been using Hifiman edition Xs with the zen stack. the improvements i observed are :
Laser sharp imaging. the positioning of instruments is absolutely improved.
soundstage is extended. and more importantly the Bass response, wow the bass is just perfect now. instrument seperation is improved definitely. and truely, the background is very very quiet and not even a sign of hiss or noise floor. very clean power is provided.i dont need to increase the volume to crazy levels,even at low volumes it is sweet because the power is clean and there is no noise or distortion. I think by adding each component in the music system we get some 5 or 10 percentage improvement. but all these small improvements add up. Every component is important from the power supply to headphones, analog cables, and more importantly the digital cables.
Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
