Use your favorite source to feed your music to the iFi Audio ZEN CAN Signature and connect your headphones and hear what you have been missing in your favorite tunes. Laptops and smartphones have a really low power output of <1.0v. On a good set of headphones you’re always running out of juice. You never get to really hear what they can do. The ZEN CAN Signature delivers warm and exceptional sound quality thanks to its Class A discrete balanced circuitry, inherited from the flagship Pro iCAN headphone amplifier.
Enhanced circuitry. Premium components. Signature Sound.
The original ZEN CAN, our all-analogue headphone amplifier, excelled at driving demanding headphone loads with its balanced circuit design, extremely low distortion, and exceptional sonics. The ZEN CAN Signature takes this design further, featuring enhanced circuitry and audiophile-grade components.
Its balanced, symmetrical dual-mono circuitry can deliver a maximum of 1,890mW (11.0V) into 64-ohm loads and offer over 15V to loads of 600 ohms or higher, all through its balanced output.
The ZEN CAN Signature offers a range of input options, including stereo RCA, 3.5mm single-ended, and 4.4mm balanced inputs, making it versatile enough to connect with your laptops, phones, or DACs.
For output, it provides a 4.4mm balanced option for headphones that support balanced connections. It also features a 6.3mm jack for headphones with standard single-ended connectors. If you’re using earphones with a 3.5mm plug, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter is available, so there’s no need to worry.
The unit also includes an analogue balanced output on the back panel, ideal for connecting active speakers via a 4.4mm to XLR adapter. As the ZEN CAN Signature is fully balanced and dual-mono circuit design, this is the recommended output option.
XSpace & XBass
Xspace Matrix technology to the ZEN CAN Signature. This feature is similar to the previously added 3D functionality and is mainly intended for albums where the soundstage is mostly centered between the ears. With Xspace Matrix the ZEN CAN stretches the soundstage in such a way that voices are still nicely centered, but details and effects are spaciously staged in the room, creating a wider and deeper soundstage. XBass tackles a common problem, particularly with open-back headphones: the loss of bass frequencies. With this iFi ZEN CAN Signature you’ll take the performance of your headphones to summit level.
