iFi iDSD Diablo 2 Portable DAC/Amp

iFi iDSD Diablo 2 Portable DAC/Amp launched that offers Heavenly sound and Diabolical power.

The Diablo 2, dressed in a devilish red, succeeds the Diablo-X and features a series of improvements such as increased headphone output power, support for lossless Bluetooth codecs, xMEMS technology, iEMatch, a USB-C input, improved circuitry, and more.

As an audiophile, you likely use different systems for home and mobile setups. The Diablo 2 offers the best of both worlds with its powerful 5180mW output and balanced dual-mono circuitry, making it the most powerful headphone amplifier of its size.


The Diablo 2 is the world’s first portable DAC/Amp with Bluetooth 5.4 and supports aptX Lossless, the only Bluetooth codec for lossless CD-quality streaming without sacrificing audio quality.

Due to the high voltage requirements of xMEMS, iFi has partnered with them to integrate this technology into the new Diablo 2. It uses the piezoelectric effect to create paper-thin solid-state speakers by converting electrical energy into mechanical energy, exciting An integrated silicon membrane to generate powerful acoustic sound waves for enhanced audio output.

Are you having problems with your headphones that consume a lot of power? Press the NOS button, and the Diablo goes into beast mode. The Diablo 2 offers three power modes: Normal for IEMs, Turbo for medium-sensitivity headphones, and Nitro for demanding headphones, with a maximum output of 19.2V.
