    Since its introduction in 2012, the original micro iUSB changed what was considered attainable from computer audio by supplying regenerated USB power. The recently launched flagship micro iUSB3.0 aimed at top-tier dacs (+$5000), is another leap for computer audio.

    The all-new nano iUSB3.0 is the ‘Baby Bentley’ of the flagship micro iUSB3.0. For $500 to $5000 dacs, it retains the lion’s share of the micro iUSB3.0’s features – USB3.0 chipset at the heart, IsoPort®, Active Noise Cancellation®, REgenerate/REclock/REbalance® and more.

    Exclusive AMR trickle-down technology

    The all-new nano iUSB3.0 features all-original, cutting-edge USB audio technology including Active Noise Cancellation® from AMR. The latest REclock®; REbalance® work their magic while the original REgenerate® which was at the heart of the success of its predecessor. All combined the nano iUSB3.0 has some serious USB technology.

    Fed by the iPOWER, the noise floor of the nano iUSB3.0 at 0.5uV (or 0.0000005V) is only bettered by the flagship micro iUSB3.0.

    Active Noise Cancellation® drawn from military radar technology

    Drawing from the military field (specifically the Thales Spectra radar cancellation system deployed in the French Dassault Rafale jet fighter), iFi adapted this technology to exclusively introduce the Active Noise Cancellation® (ANC®) audio power system. ANC® technology is now a cornerstone of the iFi USB technology range.

    An air defence radar is transmitting at a certain frequency; when the signal bounces off the aircraft, a receiver on board the aircraft picks up the signal and a computer analyses its base frequency/modulations and an identical, but out-of-phase signal is then generated to cancel out the enemy radar signal.

    By generating a signal identical to the noise signal but in the exact opposite phase, it completely cancels all the incoming noise. ANC® is the perfect ‘antidote’ for power supply noise; the bane of USB audio.

    With ANC® the power line is filtered for RF noise. The measured noise floor of 0.5uV (0.0000005V) is at the measurement limit of the Audio Precision equipment.

    The background and inner resolution to recordings is no longer hidden. Sonics are much smoother, just like how good analogue should be.

    A whole new signal: REclock® /REgenerate®

    The nano iUSB 3.0 re-clocks/re-generates/repeats USB audio datastream. For any and every downstream DAC, REgenerate® actually ‘regenerates’ an all-new USB signal via a precision master clock with the REclock® technology to eliminate computer jitter. Music just flows better; is cleaner, more accurate, just like the real thing.

    Recover the unbalanced USB signal: REbalance®

    The USB signal is inherently a ‘balanced’ signal, however most USB signals become ‘unbalanced’ to some degree and contaminated by noise. By removing the DC offset and ‘re-balancing’ the USB audio signal, it is now perfectly balanced and noise-free.

    The graph on the left shows a typical USB signal that is poor. Virtually everything about the signal is out of kilter. The graph on the right shows how EACH different feature of the iUSB3.0 corrects the USB audio signal. All combined, the signal is brought back to a near ‘perfect’ form. This shows the importance of having each and every REclock®/REgenerate®/REbalance® feature to fully restore the eye pattern.

    The future is here: USB3.0® ultra-speed 5.0 Gbps

    iFi products are at the cutting-edge yet also look to the future. The nano iUSB3.0 is USB3.0 standard and is backwards compatible with USB2.0. There is also the added sonic benefit from the USB3.0 platform which mandates better connectors, higher-quality cables etc. Looking ahead, as audio transmission standards improve, with an ultra-speed bandwidth of 5.0Gbps, USB3.0 is future-proofed. It is 10x that of 480Mbps on USB2.0.

    USB Power ‘On’ for less stress

    Unless the normal power up/down sequence is followed, the computer may ‘lose’ the DAC connection. The nano iUSB3.0 has an ‘Auto/On’ switch where the ‘On’ setting ensures USB power is constantly supplied to the PC so it always ‘sees’ the DAC to enhance user enjoyment.

    USB Dual-Ports® for Gemini Dual-Headed cable

    Retaining the Dual-Port topology, the nano iUSB3.0 operates as a computer audiophile-grade USB power supply. The data and power lines are totally separate which eliminates any cross contamination.

    With modern power-hungry devices, the nano iUSB3.0 is also Bus Charge 1.2 compliant – able to fast-charge phones, tablets and even its siblings, the nano iDSD and micro iDSD.

    This is the second of these power supplies that I have bought; and that tells you something. The first one initially did not work with my USB iLink converter, and I wrote about that in my review of the first of the iUSB3.0 that I bought. I had a good place to use it elsewhere, where it did a good job. However, when I played around with it again in conjunction with the iLink, I found that the problem was that the connection between the computer and the DAC had been broken when I moved the leads around, and that all that was required was to take out the input to the iLink and replace it. The iUSB3.0 brought a clear improvement to the situation, i.e. as against feeding the iLink direct from the computer (even through a Gemini cable). So, I bought another one!
