Sampling Rate And Bit Depth

Ever wonder how those ones and zeros on your computer magically transform into the rich melodies that fill your room?


The secret lies in a tiny device called a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). Think of it as a translator, taking the digital code of your music and meticulously sculpting it back into a smooth, analog wave that your speakers can understand. But just like a sculptor needs the right tools, achieving audio nirvana with a DAC depends on two key factors: sampling rate and bit depth.


Sampling Rate:

Imagine your favourite song as a complex rollercoaster track. The sampling rate refers to how often the DAC takes measurements of this digital track, measured in kHz (kilohertz) or thousands of times per second. A higher sampling rate, like 96 kHz, is like taking a ton of pictures of the track, capturing every twist and turn with incredible detail. Lower rates, like the standard 44.1 kHz used in CDs, are like taking snapshots at a theme park – fun, but you might miss some of the subtler details that make the ride truly exhilarating.


Bit Depth:

Now, think about the sculptor's tools. Bit depth refers to the precision of each measurement the DAC takes. Imagine the number of colours available to the sculptor. With higher bit depth (e.g., 24 bits compared to 16 bits), each measurement can capture a wider range of values. This allows the DAC to recreate subtler variations in the sound wave, resulting in richer and more nuanced audio. It's like having a broader colour palette for building a more detailed and lifelike sculpture of the sound.


The iFi UNO presents an exclusive blend of features not found elsewhere, encompassing a volume knob, integrated EQ presets, and RCA outputs, all within a reasonably priced package. If you are in search of a compact, budget-friendly DAC&Amp, the Uno stands out as a practical choice.

THREE UNIQUE MODES TO CATER TO YOUR SONIC PREFERENCES

iFi Audio has designed the UNO to support three modes to cater to your sonic preferences. The three modes include Music mode, Movie mode, and Game mode. Music mode unlocks detailed and engaging sound from all your favourite artists. Listen while you work. Movie mode enhances dialogue clarity when you’re streaming films and must-watch TV shows. The game mode makes low-level sound effects crystal-clear. Always hear your enemies coming and storms brewing. Use the button on the front panel to cycle through the three settings. Illuminated logos on the top of the iFi Audio UNO indicate your chosen mode. In short, whether you use the mode features or decide to tinker further, the iFi UNO will make the audio sound clearer and full-bodied. It minimises any interference and gives you a better entertainment experience across the board. You can count on the UNO to deliver exceptional sonic reproduction that will blow your breath away!

EXCEPTIONAL ANALOGUE CIRCUITRY AND POWER MATCH FUNCTION TO MINIMISE INTERFERENCES AND DELIVER DISTORTION-FREE AUDIO

The UNO’s analogue circuitry is just as vital to the supercharged sound quality it provides as its digital tech. The headphone amp feeds a 3.5mm socket at the front, incorporating iFi’s S-Balanced configuration to reduce noise and crosstalk. The stereo RCA output at the rear also benefits from our knack for delivering high-grade audio circuitry in remarkably affordable devices. All the analogue outputs are gold-plated to resist corrosion and maintain conductivity over time. Most DACs still use digital volume control; in contrast, UNO uses analogue. When you reduce the volume on other DACs, you remove data from the song or soundtrack. With analogue volume control, you reduce the volume whilst maintaining the quality. And finally, there’s PowerMatch – this ensures you always have sufficient power to drive the headphones/in-ear monitors. Adjustable analogue gain with DRE (Dynamic Range Enhancement) plus technologies to minimise THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and crosstalk and a choice of digital filters is accessible via the front-panel buttons enabling you to fine-tune the sound of the UNO to your taste.

Tiny Yet Elegant and Sounding Very clear and deep

Testing on my old sennheiser HD 558 head set .. I can clearly see huge difference from my old sound card from Asus .. Sound is much deeper and clear with UNO .. I didnt find any where dropping or overly done .. its totally balanced and I can hear in high volumes without any distortions .. in simple words deep and clean but when I start using high gain on my 50ohms headset it start sounding muddy at high volume .. probably that power gain is for only power hungry headsets not for mine

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!

Does best at this price point

I recently got the iFi Uno DAC and I’m impressed with its unique combination of features that are unavailable elsewhere. No other mainstream product offers a volume pot, built-in EQ presets, and RCA outputs in a package at this price. The iFi Uno meshes well in a portable setup and aims savvy audiophiles or just anyone seeking a compact USB DAC/Amp at this price point.

Hey Tanmay, thanks a lot for this lovely review and we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.
