Its DAC/Definitive Portable amplifier for the home and mobile.
Heavenly sound Diabolical power
Devil 2, Dressed as Devilish Red, happens to the devil-X and has a series of improvements such as greater headphones output power, support for Bluetooth codecs without losses, XMEMS technology, IEMATCH, a USB-C input, improved circuits and improved circuits and further.
As audiophile, you are likely to use different systems for domestic and mobile configurations. The devil 2 offers the best of both worlds with its powerful output of 5180 MW and its balanced dual monkey circuit, which makes it the most powerful headphone amplifier of its size.
Diabolic innovation Breaking barriers.
The devil 2 is the first portable DAC/AMP in the world with Bluetooth 5.4, it is compatible with Aptx Lossless, the only Bluetooth codec for transmission with CD quality without loss without sacrificing audio quality.
The predecessor of Devil 2 was a pioneer in the support for the technology of solid state microaltavoces XMEMS, improving the performance of the headphones in-ore monitor IEM and the headphones with several unique benefits:
- A mechanical response of 15 µs, 150 times faster than typical controllers.
- A 2nd flat phase response for a precise sound and a precise phase adaptation of ± 1 ° for greater precision of space sound.
- A speaker diaphragm made of silicone, 95 times more rigid than plastic, which reduces speaker breakage and offers lighter medium-high frequencies.
Due to the high voltage requirements of XMEMS, IFI has been associated with them to integrate this technology into the new devil 2. Use the piezoelectric effect to create thin state speakers such as paper by converting electricity into mechanical energy, exciting an integrated silicon. Membrane to generate powerful acoustic sound waves for improved audio output.
"It has a Nos and a Turbo, Dominic" nebulization system.
Do you have problems with your headphones that consume a lot of energy? Press the nos button and our devil enters beast mode. The Devil 2 offers three energy modes: Normal for headphones In-Oar IEM Monitor, Turbo for medium sensitivity headphones and Nitro for demanding headphones, with a maximum output of 19.2 V.
A switch below activates IFI IEMatch technology. This function is designed for headphones and high-sensitivity in-to-to-stall headphones, which greatly benefits its internal monitors (IEM). Eliminates background noise and increases the usable volume range.
The Devil 2 adapts to a wide range of headphones, from in-to-to-to-to-to-headphones headphones to supraaural headphones that consume a lot of energy. It has a single -end headphone outlet of 6.3 mm and a balanced outlet of 4.4 mm. In addition, an adapter of 3.5 mm at 6.35 mm for versatile connectivity is included.
Governs all Bluetooth codec and music formats
Diablo 2 has the latest Bluetooth 5.4 technology, compatible with the new Aptx Lossless codec, which provides a maximum bits rate of 1200 kbps. In comparison, Aptx Adaptive has a maximum 420 kbps bits rate, while LDAC offers a higher bits rate than 990 Kbps.
The devil 2 used the new Bluetooth audio chip QCC518x of Qualcomm, is qualified for Bluetooth 5.4, admits all* the Bluetooth formats, including: Aptx Lossless, Aptx Adaptive, APTX, LDAC, LHDC/HWA, AAC and SBC.
The Dual Core Burr Brown chipset provides Bit-Perfect DSD and PCM support at sampling frequencies up to 768 KHz, DSD512 and Full MQA decoding. Although Spotify advances towards Lossless, it does not stay behind.
*As of November 10, 2023. Verify that your device is compatible with the Bluetooth codec.
The devil 2 comes with four wings that you can customize to place it horizontally, such as a DAC/desktop amplifier, or vertically to save space.
In addition, it has twenty -two rails to improve cooling performance, and eight of these rails are compatible with devil wings, which allows the use of desktop support.
Devil in the details.
When examining the front panel of the devil 2, you will find a new volume lock switch next to the volume control, which avoids accidental adjustments during transport.
On the left side of the posterior panel, there is a switch to select the mode and match Bluetooth. On the right side, two USB-C ports expedite cable administration: one for audio and one for load.
It sounds so moving. Even the devil can cry.
Diablo 2 has Purewave, Directdrive Sierss, optimaloop and advanced fluctuation reduction technology, which provide exceptionally pure, detailed and emotionally moving sound; These technologies raise performance to incomparable heights, even challenging DAC/desktop amplifiers.
The totally balanced dual circuit of Purewave raises clarity by separating the channels and reducing noise. Directdrive eliminates the need to attach capacitors, which guarantees a purest audio.
Optimaloop uses multiple personalized feedback routes in amplifiers, refining gain control and reducing distortion. The GMT femtoprecision clock improved with smart storage cache minimizes phase noise for cleaner sound.
Devil 2 is the most formidable DAC/AMP on the planet. Your headphones should be afraid.
Devil's energy sources
The devil 2 can work with battery or the electricity grid.
The battery energy provides ultralimpia and stable continuous current, avoiding electricity problems such as falls, peaks and noise that induces pollution by radiofrequency interference (RFI) / Electromagnetic interference (EMI). However, there are sound disadvantages due to the low output voltage and inconsistent output impedance when the batteries are downloaded.
The IPower2 power supply included has active noise cancel For audiophiles.
To make less efficient headphones, such as flat magnetic, sing, it is necessary And easier to filter than a typical switching power supply, which guarantees a high linearity and ultrabajo noise.
Diablo 2 Accessories
Diablo 2 comes with a variety of accessories, all included with the product, so you will not need to make purchases separately.
These accessories include the IPower 2 power supply (which is 10 times quieter than typical audiophile power supplies), a USB-C cable, a USB-C to A adapter, a cough optical adapter and a coughing toslink adapter and an adapter for headphones of 3.5 mm at 6.3 mm and an Itraveller transport case.
The 16 -nuclei Xmos chip processes the audio data received through the USB*digital input.
This low latency microcontroller has an enormously improved processing power. Compared to the current generation of eight -nuclei chips, this 16 -core IC offers twice as a clock speed (2000 mips) and four times the memory (512 KB), as well as the last USB Superspeed standard.
IFI's internal digital development team has programmed the XMOS firmware to optimize sound quality and guarantee a perfect association with the DAC Burr-Brown.

FEMTOSEGOS Precision Clock
Large technologies for eradication of fluctuations to the digital stage are applied, including our GMT femtoprecision clock (Global Master Timing) and an intelligent memory buffer. This represents a totally systematic digital solution to use that solves the concern once and for all.
The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means that file formats remain unchanged or "bit-perfects." This means that you are listening to music as the artist conceived it in the format in which he was recorded.
In Ifi we widely used Burr Brown in our products and select it for its "musical" natural sound and its architecture True Native. Our experience with this IC means that we know how to make the most of it.
An important aspect of circuit design is its direct coupling nature (there is no present coupling condenser), which is achieved without a continuous current stream conventionally.
Directdrive® is equivalent to a direct signal route, which means less signal degradation. This direct signal route does not have the same in audio and is the reason why the sound is so "true."
MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is compatible through the USB with complete MQA files of up to 384 kHz thanks to the processing power of the new 16 -core new XMOS chip.
This means that the complete decoding process of "three deployments is carried out internally, instead of only the final deployment in the manner of a" rendering "MQA.
Worldwide, MQA has become an important consideration for any fully equipped DAC. It is available through Tidal Masters, Audirvana and Roon.
"Negative feedback" is used in amplifier circuits to compare the output signal with the input signal and correct errors, in order to control the gain and reduce distortion.
For sound quality, this is positive; But "global negative feedback" commonly applied and unique size can also highlight different problems while solving others: corruption of the error signal, phase changes, group delay, etc., can have an impact can have an impact Negative for sound quality.
We recognize that different parts of a circuit benefit from specifically optimized feedback loops and have developed a negative feedback system that is much more precise than the usual approach. This incorporates multiple feedback routes instead of a global loop, each optimized route for a particular function and working synergily with the others to offer optimal general performance.
OV operational amplifier
As with many other IFI audio products, we have incorporated a personalized OV series operational amplifier. This first level component contributes to extremely low noise, low distortion (0.0001%) and wide bandwidth.
The differential and balanced analog circuit design has been defended for a long time for its ability to reduce noise and diaphonia within the signal route by completely separating the left and right channels.
Purewave is a new symmetric and balanced mono dual topology with short and direct signal routes. The name refers to the sound purity that achieves thanks to an exceptional linearity and infinitely low noise and distortion levels.
The change between configurations has been designed to guarantee sound transparency with advanced trench technology. MOSFET is used as a silencing switch.
This FET -based switching is managed by a microcontroller, which only "awakens" when the user changes a configuration, thus eradicating any harmful sound interference.
TDK C0G ceramic capacitors
TDK C0G capacitors (class 1 ceramics) offer high stability and low losses for resonant circuit applications.
Each and closer to the theoretical ideal of pure constant frequency, these capacitors reduce condenser induced distortion to extremely low levels.
They are expensive but they are a perfect complement to our products.
Resistances Vishay Melf: Complex, expensive but superior
These cable -free frontal resistances with metal electrodes have excellent precision, stability, reliability and impulse load capacity. They provide optimal nominal power and an impulse load capacity. They show one of the lowest noise and distortions of any resistance available in the market, point.
Panasonic OS-Concations with a total of 5,410 μF provide a very low equivalent series resistance, an excellent noise reduction capacity and frequency response features. In addition, OS-with have a long useful life and their ESR changes little even at low temperatures, since the electrolyte is solid.
They are not usually found in products that cost less than $ 1,000.
