Product Description

ifi Audio ZEN CAN – fully balanced headphone amplifier 1600 mW

Laptops, tablets or smartphones have a low power output of only around 1V. With good headphones you lack the power here. You will never hear what your headphones can do. If you feed the analog result of the laptop, tablet or smartphone into the ZEN CAN, you can get 52 times the performance. You will now hear what you missed.

The ZEN CAN has a discrete, symmetrical class-A amplifier circuit that comes from the expensive flagship iFi PRO iCAN. With 15.1 volts at 300 ohms, it has a power that makes even hard-to-drive headphones play.

Extremely low distortion and noise from a circuit design inspired by ifi Audio's flagship headphone amp that uses a dedicated input stage that's level matched to your source, allowing the signal to flow freely through the Class A output stage, literally music in yours ears.

Maximize the power of your headphones to go beyond just getting loud, realizing the full dynamic range of the drivers and experiencing smooth vocals and heart-pounding drums without missing a beat. Delivers up to 1600mW of power into 16 ohms.

Enhanced with signature analog signal processing to deliver more accurate and natural bass frequencies through XBass and present a wider soundstage bringing out the music in front of you through the 3D matrix that replicates listening to speakers without the hassle of setup

Features both a balanced 4.4mm Pentacon and an unbalanced 6.3mm (1/4") front panel headphone output and three rear panel inputs including a 3.5mm line Outs, left and right RCA jacks and a balanced 4.4mm Pentacon connector. In addition, there is a balanced 4.4 output for connection to a power amplifier or active loudspeaker for use as a preamp.
