Pure silence. Clean power to the maX.
With crème de la crème components and tech, the iFi iPower X deep cleans the background noise created in your mains power. Can now be used with a wider variety of equipment and it is especially interesting for Zappiti players such as Zappiti Neo, Zappiti One SE, Zappiti One, or Zappiti Mini. This power adapter can also work on Zappiti Duo but only if you are using it with only one internal drive.
The original iFi iPower provides an effective, clean power solution for noise in your system.
But why not push your power upgrade to the max with the all-new iFi iPower X? The new ultra-low noise AC/DC power supply from iFi Audio has be optimised to take advantage of new knowledge, components and tech in the world of super high-frequency power supply design.
The iPower X uses Active Noise Cancellation II to cancel all incoming EMI or RFI noise. This is the same tech as in active noise-cancelling headphones! Imagine how well these block out cabin noise on a plane compared to regular headphones? This is what the iPower X does to your power supply.
As usual with iFi, every new design means not only improving how it looks on the outside but more importantly, how it functions on the inside. The input capacitance is now 50% larger and the output capacitance is 150% larger when compared to the original iPower that Zappiti previously advised. In practical terms, this gives you more filtration, improved dynamics and unsurpassed sound quality.
Crème de la crème components
We’re using the latest solid organic capacitors for better suppression of high-frequency noise. And the leakage capacitance is some 20x lower than your normal SMPS! In a nutshell, there is no escape for unwanted noise! All in all, the iPower X will give you 20% more power than the original iFi iPower and increased amperage which means it can work with more external drives connected to your Zappiti than with the original iPower.
Sleek, modern design
The iPower X comes dressed in a new cream/beige chassis for a cool, clean look. We’ve added several openings and the iFi logo backlit by a pleasant cyan LED light. There’s no second guessing when this mini work of art is on and connected to the mains. And as always, we’re giving you freedom. The iPower X is interchangeable with wall pin types across the world (UK/US/EU/AU purchased separately).
How it works?
Based on military tech, our improved Active Noise Cancellation II® actively cancels all incoming noise. It does this in a similar way to active noise-cancelling headphones – it generates a signal identical to that of the incoming electrical noise but in the opposite phase, actively cancelling it out. This is highly effective at removing low- and mid-frequency noise, while passive insulating filters deal with higher frequency interference. This combination is measurably more effective at eradicating noise corrupting the USB signal than devices relying solely on passive filtering.
For better suppression of high-frequency noise, we added solid organic semi-conductors to its output filter. The iPower X leakage noise is 20x lower than normal SMPS (100pf vs 2,200pf).
When compared to the original iPower:
i. Input capacitance is 50% larger; 47uf instead of 33uf.
ii. Output capacitance is 150% larger.
It works with virtually any DC powered device and comes in 5, 9, 12 and 15 volts.
Just check the correct voltage and away you go. Clean, audiophile grade power.
5V/3.0A, 9V/2.5A, 12V/2.0A, 15V/1.5A
Please note that the Zappiti Neo is compatible with this 12V 2A power supply as well as 12V 3A and 4A. The original 3A power adapter provides more power that can be useful in case of multiple external 2.5" USB drives. But if you are not using multiple drives, 2A is enough to powered the Zappiti Neo with internal drive. The same for the Zappiti One, Zappiti One SE and Zappiti Mini. This power adapter can also work on Zappiti Duo but only if you are using it with only one internal drive.
