The Pro iCAN is a studio-grade headphone amplifier AND audiophile line-stage. Inside are two individual Solid-State and Tube amplification sections – selectable on the go. The Pro iCAN will for many, be used as a top-of-the-line, headphone amplifier that drives all headphones. Further, gain is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB and is fully-balanced from beginning to end.
In terms of flexibility, 3 single-ended and 1 balanced inputs and 1 balanced and 1 single-ended output, the Pro iCAN is a full-function audiophile line-stage that is at home in many expensive hi-fi systems. In the Pro iCAN, when the Tube circuit is selected the solid state part is completely off and it is NOT in the audio signal path. Equally, if the Solid state circuit is selected the Tube part is completely off and it is NOT in the audio signal path.
"The Pro iCAN is, then, a superb headphone amp in its own right, and one ready to serve as the centrepiece of one of the world’s finest personal audio electronics suites." — HiFi Plus
"I just wish I had ifi PRO iCAN at the computer – and I wish it so much. Because it’s really something. I’m sure there are much better ones, like RudiStor Dual Mono or Appex Pinnacle. But first, they are more expensive (much, much more) and second, they are not as handy. Because this one is just perfect – not too big or too small – and it has lots of power supported by tubes, and when you connect it to a good converter, using a good interconnect and plug some nice headphones in, the result is so fantastic that the urge to have it is starting to burn you." — HiFi Philosophy.com
