"Taking the Stereo 50 in isolation, I would say that it sounds very much like what it is; namely, an iFi Micro iDSD headphone amp/DAC that has just received a massive infusion of pure, clean, but harmonically rich valve power. Thus, the rich, vibrant, clear, but not detail-obsessed, AMR-influenced sound for which all iFi components are known is still present and accounted for in the RETRO Stereo 50—only more so. How so? Well, the addition of valve power not only brings—in a headphone context—a terrific amount of musical muscle to the party, but also brings a sonic quality that is at once relaxed and yet vibrant and full of beautifully saturated tonal colours. If you’ve ever wondered what an iFi Micro iDSD would sound like if it had effectively unlimited power for driving headphones, plus the ineffable harmonic rightness of valves, then the Stereo 50 is your answer.
Two more beautiful things about the Stereo are its wonderfully precise, switch-defeatable tone controls, and its remote."
