ifi Audio – iONE & iTUBE2 arrival

Arrival of the ifi Audio – iONE & iTUBE2.

At iFi we believe that high quality sound is a way of life. The nano iOne was created for both audiophiles and those who yearn for better sound quality from their existing home systems.

Whether you use Nvidia Shield, Google Chromecast or a 4K television, hook your system up to a gaming console such as the XBox One, Playstation 4 or simple enjoy music through your smartphone, tablet or computer, the iOne is the one for you. Add it to your audiophile rig to push the boundaries of high-quality sound to a whole new level.
It is ideal for:
1. Home systems – add Bluetooth to stream Spotify via computer, phone or tablet.
2. 4K televisions – improve sound quality to match picture quality
3. Gaming consoles – elevate movie soundtracks and gaming effects to the max by connecting the optical output to the iONE then the analogue outputs to active desktop speakers or headphone amplifier.
4. S/PDIF only DACs – use USB/Bluetooth input to convert to S/PDIF output.

The iOne is neither a one-trick pony nor is it a jack-of-all-trades. It is simply incredibly versatile and offers cutting-edge technology, with each separate function designed and implemented with as much care and dedication as they would receive in a single function device from iFi Audio.

The original iTube became the ‘go to’ tube buffer for any and every home audio system. We have redesigned the micro iTube2 with new parts and new circuitry using trickle-down technology from the flagship ‘Pro’ series. Only the GE5670 tube remains.

The micro iTube2 is a tubed output stage, tube preamp, tube buffer AND an impedance-matching device all in one. There is nothing like it. You can put the micro iTube2 before a solid-state preamp and another one after it, creating the effect of tubing the whole audio chain. Or you can choose to simply use the micro iTube2 as a very high-quality preamp by itself.

The micro iTube2 sounds by and far, like a tube amplifier ‘done right with the inimitable magic of tubes.‘ Tonality and heft, especially in the mid-range and bass frequencies are increased to elevate the whole audio system from $100k to $1k. The micro iTube2 injects a serious does of tube magic into any audio system.
