"Something of a niche product at just £100, the xCan will surely appeal to digital audio player owners looking for a bit more sonic welly. But make sure it has the connectivity you need, and ignore all the heavy-handed 'sound enhancement' modes, for it sounds best when used 'straight'. A simpler, more affordable version, shorn of frills, might be an even more attractive prospect."

    Features

    Balanced 1000mW
    The xCAN boasts a dual-mono headphone amplifier with 1000mW of power per channel which can unleash the full potential of both 32ohm through to 600ohm headphones. The xCAN offers balanced in/out to take full advantage of the growing availability of balanced sources and headphones. The 2.5mm balanced headphone jack means the xCAN can be used to boost the amplification of high-end DAPs.

    S-Balanced Performance
    The iFi exclusive S-Balanced technology is trickle-down tech from the flagship Pro iCAN. S-Balanced 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. Reap the advantages of balanced wiring, enjoy lower distortion and reduced crosstalk.

    AAC | aptX | aptX LL
    The xCAN delivers CD-Quality Bluetooth via AAC, aptX and aptX LL with added iFi magic. Stream from your smartphone or TV via Bluetooth to the xCAN - no need for wires. Just plug your headphones into the xCAN at your side for the best Bluetooth sound around.

    3D+ XBass II
    Our 3D+® system creates a more a engaging sound and puts the performer on stage in your home. Our new XBass Ⅱ® adds even more musical satisfaction. The XBass Ⅱ® analogue bass correction system corrects headphone bass response to deliver a more natural sound to the upper bass frequency band.

    Global Master Timing
    The xCAN comes with built-in Global Master Timing from AMR so jitter is a thing of the past. This represents a total ‘out of the box’ systematic digital solution that solves the digital jitter problem once and for all.

    Cyberdrive
    The Cyberdrive headphone amplifier stage is one of the pivotal new circuit designs in the x-series. This new design places all parameters of the fully analogue system under digital control for a ‘best of both worlds’ scenario.

    The Cyberdrive design incorporates the iFi exclusive OV4627 ultra low noise FET input Op-Amp and W990VST digitally controlled stepped attenuator to deliver a new level of sound-quality.

    Long Lasting!
    With a separate power input (USB Type C) to charge its own internal battery, it does not draw from your smartphone or playback device. Playback time is 12 (via Bluetooth as input) to 18 (as analogue amplifier only) hours.
