The noise floor of the Micro iUSB 3.0 has been improved considerably and is a remarkable 0.1 uV (or 0.0000001V). This is at the age of what even is measurable, even the best rigs by Audio Precision can barely measure it.
Drawing from the military field (specifically the Thales Spectra radar cancellation system deployed in the French Dassault Rafale jet fighter), iFi adapted this technology to exclusively introduce the Active Noise Cancellation+ ® (ANC+®) audio power system. It is so revolutionary that the ANC technology is now a cornerstone of the ever-improving iFi USB audio technology range.
The micro iUSB 3.0 re-clocks/re-generates/repeats USB audio datastream. For any and every downstream DAC, REgenerate creates an all new USB signal and then employed a precision master clock with the REclock® technology to completely eliminate computer jitter. Music flows better; is cleaner, deeper and more accurate, just like the real thing.
USB signal is inherently a balanced signal, however most USB signals are unbalanced to some degree and contaminated by noise. By removing the DC offset and ‘re-balancing’ the USB audio signal, it is now perfectly balanced and noise-free.
iFi products are cutting-edge in the future of audio. Being USB3.0 standard, the micro iUSB3.0 handles USB3.0 and USB2.0 with aplomb. As audio signal quality improves, USB3.0’s ultra-speed bandwidth of 5.0Gbps offers an incredibly wide bandwidth that is 10x that of USB2.0’s 480Mbps.
Hence, the micro iUSB3.0 handles ultra-high resolution audio without restriction. For now and many years to come, the micro iUSB3.0 will remain an integral component.
The ground connection on computers is often contaminated as it lacks any isolation. Thus it often experiences some amounts of noise. The iUSB cleverly solves this problem with IsoGround®, while still complying with the USB Standard (simply breaking the computer ground connections is NOT USB compliant and often results in connection problems). Along with this, the Micro iUSB 3.0 also features 'On/Auto' USB power line options to further enhance the user experience.
With two sets of Dual-Ports (1 set on the face, with the other on the side),the Micro iUSB 3.0 also operates an audiophile grade, powered USB Hub, to serve devices such as the DAC and external Hard Disc Drives. This allows for a whisper quite computer audio experience, from storage, to transport, to the source, without either of them contaminating the signal on the other.
With modern power-hungry devices, the micro iUSB3.0 is also Bus Charge 1.2 compliant which means it is able to fast-charge phones, tablets and even the phenomenal micro iDSD.
