iFi Go Link Portable DAC Launched

Offers Supercharged Sound At Affordable Prices

With a new super-affordable GO Link portable DAC, which is the size of a standard USB stick, British audio specialist iFi appears to be developing more portable audio devices. This new dongle-style headphone amp connects to your Mac, PC, or smartphone via USB-C and has a 3.5mm headphone input on the other end. The device not only lets you listen to high-resolution audio and enhance your audio quality, but it also functions as a 3.5mm adaptor, which is very useful for people who have devices without headphone output.

Design

Inside the GO Link’s lightweight magnesium alloy case, there’s a DAC chip from ESS Technology’s Sabre HiFi series, Quad DAC+ and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator tech, along with iFi’s dedicated clock circuitry for reduced distortion and enhanced dynamic range. There’s a flexible, polymer-insulated 6cm cable connecting the Go Link’s USB-C connector and the DAC for reduced stress on device ports, while the unit comes with a selection of adaptors, including USB-A and Apple’s fast connector.

Features

This iFi GO Link Portable DAC has support for hi-res music files up to 32-bit/384kHz, DSD up to 11.2MHz (DSD256) and MQA. The gold-plated 3.5mm socket on the GO Link, which uses iFi’s noise-cancelling S-Balanced configuration, clearly outperforms the headphone output found on even the greatest smartphone, tablet, or PC.

The gadget has a power output of 70mW/1.5V into 32 ohms, rising to 2V with higher impedance headphones – enough to drive the kind of audiophile headphones and earphones with which the GO Link may be paired while minimizing the drain on your connected device’s battery. Additionally, the 3.5mm analogue output can be utilized to connect a powered speaker, preamplifier, integrated amp, or powered speakers in addition to powering your wired headphones.

Price & Availability

This powerful yet handy GO Link is priced at $59 and is available in the global market via its official website and other resellers that sell audio and video devices.
