The Pro iCAN Signature is our new upgraded edition of the original Pro iCAN.

The Signature edition builds on the strengths of the Pro iCAN and features even more ultra-grade audiophile components designed to take your listening to a higher plane than ever before.

It is a top-of-the-line headphone amplifier that is capable of driving anything and everything from the most sensitive custom iEMs to the AKG K-1000, the most difficult to drive headphone ever made.

  • AKG K-1000:The AKG K-1000 headphone has been around since about 1990. It is extremely high performance. AKG described it as an “ear speaker”.Some say that it feels like you can reach out and touch the sound they produce, such is their visceral quality.

Enhancements to the Pro iCAN Signature include:

  • Revised circuit design incorporates even more ultra-grade audiophile components
  • Upgraded power supply circuits to eradicate even more noise and distortion
  • Top of the range iPower Elite offboard AC/DC power supply included
  • Hand-selected and matched tubes in the output stage
  • 4.4mm Balanced-headphone output
  • New aluminium remote control
Beautifully balanced Pro power

The Pro iCAN Signature sports an end-to-end fully differential balanced circuit design that delivers ultra low distortion. This means extraordinary quality with minimal interference and reduced crosstalk. The sound is cleaner, deeper and more dynamic.

It is also exceptionally powerful and will drive any headphone on the planet. It boasts a maximum balanced output power of >14,000mW and a maximum single-ended power output of >4,800mW.

nd with variable gain, you can adjust the Pro iCAN Signature to drive your headphone of choice.

  • Gain:is the amount of increase in audio signal strength. Gain is often expressed in decibels (dB).

To tube or not to tube…?

To tube or not to tube…?

Or to Tube+? That is the question.

With the Pro iCAN Signature you can enjoy the sound of solid-state or tubes in one single package.

  • Solid state 'v' Tubes:

    A solid-state amplifier uses electronics such as diodes and transistors to amplify the music signal. A tube amp uses valves/vacuum tubes to do the same job.

    There is a noticeable sound difference between the two methods. Some feel that tube amps create a warmer, more musical tone. Some companies choose to build ‘hybrid’ models that combine the two methods.

For some of your recordings, and depending on whether you are listening through headphones or speakers, you may prefer the ‘lively’ feel of solid-state or for others, the more ‘luxurious’ feel of Tube or Tube+.

The choice is yours at the flick of a switch in real time.

Signature by name…

The Pro iCAN Signature wouldn’t be ours without our signature sonic tweaks. Just like the original, it boasts XBass and 3D Holographic settings so that you can calibrate sound to suit your system and personal taste.

XBass is our analogue ‘bass boost’ that enhances the low frequencies without muddying the mid-range.

3D Holographic for Headphones undoes the negative sonic impact of listening to recordings that were originally created for loudspeakers.

3D Holographic for Loudspeaker Systems corrects the spatial distortion and restores the natural soundstage.

Get connected

Get connected

The Pro iCAN Signature boasts a plethora of fully balanced and single-ended connections.

Headphone connections include the new 4.4mm Balanced output as well as a fully balanced XLR, a single-ended 6.3mm and our unique S-Balanced 3.5mm output.

Our S-Balanced output cuts distortion by 50% with single-ended headphones connections.

Power is everything.

The Pro iCAN Signature, ships with our flagship iPOWER Elite.

Coupled with the re-crafted power supply board which is up to 300% quieter, the music is buttery smooth.

Within and without – we left no stone unturned in our quest for the cleanest, purest power for the Pro iCAN Signature (same for Pro iDSD Signature too!)

Super-powerful

Super-powerful

Power like no other. Super-powerful maximum 14,000mW headphone output power.

Balanced-mode

Balanced-mode

Gain is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB.

It can output more than 10V in Single-Ended mode and 20V in Balanced-mode. The 20V mode is equivalent 100W into a 40 Ohm speaker.

3D Holographic®

An ‘Out of Head’ listening experience. Our 3D Holographic® dual-analogue matrices place the artist with you in the room, not inside your head.

Tube and Tube+

Tube and Tube+

You can switch from solid-state to tubes in real time.

There are 2 tube settings; Tube and Tube+.

The Tube+ position reduces overall loop-gain and thus negative feedback to the minimum. This gives a different trade-off between the tube’s natural harmonics and the transient performance.

S-Balanced technology

S-Balanced technology

The iFi exclusive S-Balanced technology made its debut in the original Pro iCAN. Since then, it has become a significant feature in across the iFi range and features in the Pro iCAN Signature as expected.

It 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.

Pro iCAN Signature

The new Pro iCAN Signature is full-differential balanced. That is, there are totally separate left & right channels with their own +/- all the way through.

This exquisitely engineered design costs more but the way it moves you and the music is worth it.
