Two New Minature DACs from iFi: Uno and GO Link

iFi introduces two new DACs with integrated headphone amplifier, which aim to convince with their low price and Hi-Res music playback.

Both of iFi's new digital-to-analog converters have headphone amplifiers built in and can be used on the go, among other things, as their power needs are met by the connected source device, such as a phone or computer. The larger of the two new devices, "Uno," carries the Sabre ES9219MQ/Q ESS DAC, which, along with various technologies from iFi, is said to offer high performance, low distortion as well as more benefits. In addition to the 3.5mm headphone output – stated output power of 211 mW into 32 ohms and 3.5 V into 600 ohms – the Uno comes with an RCA output for use as a pure DAC.

The iFi Uno also offers three different modes, which are supposed to optimize the sound for different situations: Music, Movies and Games. In addition, it carries the "Powermatch" feature also found on other iFi products. It is said to be able to work with files up to 32-bit / 384 kHz, DSD256 and MQA; Data is given to it via USB.

In addition, iFi also releases the dongle DAC "GO Link", which is made for the connection to phones or computers via USB-C – adapters for USB-A and Lightning are included. Among other things, optional digital filters and a special configuration of the cable are supposed to improve the sound. The GO Link outputs the converted signals via a 3.5mm headphone jack, and iFi states an output power of 70mW / 1.5V at 32 ohms, and 2V at higher impedances. The mini DAC is also said to be able to handle audio files of up to 32-bit / 384 kHz, as well as MQA and DSD256.

iFi's two new DACs/headphone amplifiers are available immediately*; the Uno is stated to cost around €80*, the GO Link around €60*.

*Availability and prices for Germany.
