Introducing the iBasso D16: Redefining Portable Audio Excellence which sets a new standard for portable digital-to-analog converters (DACs), boasting unparalleled performance and cutting-edge technology to deliver an unmatched audio experience on the go. Designed with meticulous attention to detail and utilizing state-of-the-art components, the D16 is poised to elevate your listening experience to new heights.

FPGA-Master 2.0: Revolutionizing Signal Processing

At the heart of the D16 lies the revolutionary FPGA-Master 2.0, a culmination of iBasso's algorithmic achievements over the past three years. This innovative technology redefines signal reorganization and recoding, generating precision PWM signals that are decoded by 128 discrete PWM-DACs. With the FPGA-Master 2.0's precise control, each DAC undergoes meticulous delay and alignment, ensuring optimal performance and minimal distortion.

Hardware Analog FIR Filter: Unparalleled Sound Detail

The D16 incorporates a groundbreaking hardware analog FIR filter, enabled by FPGA-Master 2.0's precise control. With 32 PWM-DACs operating in "delay parallel" mode per channel, distortion is minimized, and sound detail and density are significantly enhanced. This advanced configuration sets the D16 apart, providing listeners with an immersive audio experience like never before.

Cutting-Edge Components for Superior Performance

Crafted with the finest components, the D16 delivers uncompromising audio quality. From 128 low-temperature drift 0.1% high-precision thin film resistors to dual Accusilicon ultra-low phase noise femtosecond oscillators, every element is carefully selected to ensure optimal performance. The inclusion of a professional audio DSP chip further enhances the dynamic range and reduces THD+N, pushing the boundaries of portable audio fidelity.

Super Class A Discrete Amplifier: Powerhouse Performance

Building upon the success of the DX320MAX, the D16 features a super Class A discrete amplifier circuit. With 20 low VCEsat (BISS) dual transistors, this amplifier delivers a robust output current capability of up to 2A, producing an impressive 1125mW+1125mW@32Ω. The result is unparalleled clarity, precision, and power, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your favourite music with unmatched fidelity.

Sleek Design with Intuitive Controls

Housed in a sleek and stylish chassis, the D16 features a 1.3" OLED display for easy navigation and monitoring. The intuitive controls and ergonomic design ensure effortless operation, allowing you to focus on enjoying your music without distraction.

Experience the Future of Portable Audio with the iBasso D16

With its groundbreaking technology, premium components, and exceptional performance, the iBasso D16 redefines what's possible in portable audio. Whether you're at home or on the go, immerse yourself in a world of unparalleled sound quality and elevate your listening experience with the iBasso D16.
