New xCAN from iFi Audio


Press release | With every product release, iFi manages to surpass itself, and their latest release, the xCAN, is no exception. The xCAN is a portable, dual-mono Bluetooth, aptX and AAC, amplifier for use with smartphones, computers, TVs and DAPs.

Power boost
The xCAN sports balanced in/outs to take full advantage of the growing availability of balanced sources such as high-end DAPs. While the DACs in most high-end DAPs are more than capable, their inbuilt headphone amplifiers often lack in power. Give them the boost they deserve with the xCAN. And with a 1000mW of power per channel, the difference is there to be heard.

The iFi exclusive S-Balanced technology delivers the maximum performance from single-ended and balanced headphones alike. The S-Balanced, single-ended compatible balanced, 3.5mm headphone output delivers the benefits of a balanced connection to single-ended headphones. Enjoy lower distortion and reduced crosstalk.

Phone freedom
Not happy with your smartphone’s amplification but don’t want wires? Simple – plug your headphones into the xCAN, pair it with your phone and pop it into your pocket. No more wires. You are free to use your phone as you wish all while listening to your favourite hi-res tunes.

Smart thinking
Imagine the scenario. It’s late at night and you feel like watching a film or firing up the Xbox but you don’t want to disturb your other half. Your headphones don’t quite reach from your smart TV to your bed or comfortable place on the sofa. Pair the xCAN with your smart TV via Bluetooth, plug your headphones into the xCAN at your side and you are good to go. No more cable issues.
