  • The nano iGalvanic 3.0 provides maximum sound quality for anyone using a USB digital audio system. It breaks ground loops and avoids noise coupling. It also improves sonic performance and works with any computer audio system.

    The iGalvanic3.0 is a ground-up design with full-galvanic isolation on USB3.0 and USB2.0. It is a through and through ultra audiophile-grade galvanic isolation device aimed purely at computer audiophile systems and nothing else.

    “Galvanic isolation is a design technique that separates electrical circuits completely to eliminate stray or noise currents. Signals can pass between galvanically isolated circuits, but stray or noise currents, such as differences in ground potential or currents induced in AC power, are blocked.”

    It is these stray currents that create noise in the system. Although iFi audio and others have created devices that kill noise, achieving galvanic isolation on USB3.0 is the ‘holy grail’ of computer audio. It has been sought by many but never actually achieved. Until now! The iGalvanic3.0 is the ultimate one-stop USB enhancement solution for every computer audiophile:

    1. Audiophile-grade galvanic isolation.
    2. REclock2/REgenerate2/REbalance2.
    3. Clean USB ultra power supply*.

    Double REclock2/REgenerate2/REbalance2®
    As USB is a bi-directional protocol, iGalvanic3.0’s provides unique double REgenerate/REclock/Rebalance before AND after galvanic isolation, this ensures perfection transmission on both upstream and downstream.

    5.0Gbps USB3.0 Superspeed
    No need to sacrifice USB transfer speed to enjoy the benefit of full galvanic isolation. With separate transmitting AND receiving lines, the USB3.0 is vast superior to USB2.0 at handling high data volumes.

    Stealth Converter
    Built-in super low noise-floor (0.5uV) audiophile grade USB power with Panasonic OS-CONs capacitors cable of beefy 900mA supply. For the best performance, this Stealth Converter is completely galvanic isolated too.

    Ground Link
    All computer audio systems are different. This is why the iGalvanic3.0 is dedicated for computer audio use and incorporates Ground Link (ISO, RF, DC-RF). A flick of the switch optimses isolation in systems where there is no, one or multiple Grounds(Earths) which cause hum and/or buzz.

    Zero Delay®
    A highly advanced isolation technology, without any added conversion, processing, timing uncertainties or delays etc.; native, Bit-Perfect with minimal latency.
