iFi Audio hip-dac2 is a pocketable pick-me-up for music lovers.
Thanks to the XMOS 16 core tech, the hip-dac2 is now an MQA Decoder rather than a Renderer only, fully unfolding the format.
Shooting from the hip
The hip-dac2 replaces the inferior DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) and amplifier circuitry in smartphones, tablets, PCs and Mac computers to vastly improve headphone sound.
Connect your playback device via USB, plug in your favourite corded headphones or in-ear monitors and the hip-dac2 delivers a sound brimming with bold dynamism and fluid refinement.
The Burr-Brown DAC chip selected for for its fluid, highly musical sound quality and True Native architecture, together with iFi custom circuitry, enables the hip-dac2 to deliver excellent sound quality across digital audio formats, including bit-perfect PCM, native DSD and MQA.
