This is the iCAN headphone amp from ifi Audio; a Class A amp circuit and one of the best budget friendly desktop amps available. We're offering the iCAN + gain adjustment so in addition to the storied performance, you get control and versatility to drive everything from IEMs to planar headphones. The iCAN has universally positive reviews and a top five ranking in head-fi's desktop amp gear-fi section. From the anodized metal housing to its XBass and 3D sound functions, everything synergizes to make one of the best headphone amps available.
The iCAN is a neutral amp with some impressive additional features. To start, the iCAN is a blank canvas. That transparency lets you appreciate your source whether it's digital or analog without any unnecessary coloration. That said, if you are looking for some color, the engineers at ifi included bass boost and crossfade functions. The bass boost (XBass) works exactly as intended, increased kick without any upper frequency distortion. Crossfade (3D) works just as well, adding dimension without distortion. Finally, the Direct Drive circuit design keeps the signal path as short as possible, removing any remaining sources of distortion.
