Boasting a true differential balanced amplifier, the Pro iCAN will rock your headphones/speakers like no other.
Balanced equals exceptional quality – minimal interference and reduced crosstalk.
The sound is cleaner, deeper and more dynamic.
Get the best our of balanced AND single-ended headphones with our S-Balanced tech.
S-Balanced means that single ended headphones reap the advantages of balanced wiring, enjoy lower distortion and reduced crosstalk.
To tube or not to tube…
Choose a setting to suit your mood or your music.
With the Pro iCAN you can enjoy both the sound of solid-state or tubes in a single package and switch in real-time.
For some recordings and/or headphones or speakers – you may prefer the ‘lively’ feel of solid-state for other the more ‘luxurious’ feel of Tube or Tube+.
Yup, we love our tubes here at iFi and we hope you do too.
So, you thought we’d done? If the above wasn’t enough, we’ve added our signature, sonic tweaks of 3D and XBass to add that bit of extra space and depth to your sound.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy all the musical refinements that the Pro iCAN has to offer. Go on, you know you want to…
Gain is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB.
It can output more than 10V in Single-Ended mode and 20V in Balanced-mode. The 20V mode is equivalent 100W into a 40 Ohm speaker.
Power like no other. Super-powerful 14,000mW headphone output power.
A fully discrete and balanced amplifier audio circuit. It operates with full-differential internal signaling.
All the way through the circuit, there is always two separate signals of equal level but opposite polarity.
Check out the tech note for the details.
The iFi exclusive S-Balanced technology makes its debut in the Pro iCAN.
It delivers the maximum performance from both single-ended and balanced headphones. The S-Balanced (single-ended compatible balanced) 3.5mm headphone output delivers the benefits of the balanced connection to single-ended headphones.
You can switch from soild-state to tubes in real time.
There are 2 tube settings; Tube and Tube+.
The Tube+ position reduces overall loop-gain and thus negative feedback to the minimum. This gives a different trade-off between the tube’s natural harmonics and the transient performance.
Sonically superior – richer, deeper.
The XBass® analogue bass correction system corrects for the missing headphone/speaker bass response.
An ‘Out of Head’ listening experience. Our 3D Holographic® dual-analogue matrices place the artist with you in the room, not just in your headphones.
