My iFi Pro iCAN headphone amplifier review has just been posted today! https://theaudiobeatnik.com/review-ifi-pro-ican-headphone-amplifier/

Anyone in the market for a "do-anything" headphone amplifier should take a long hard look at the iCAN. It's versatility is simply unmatched. It's also very powerful and sounds great.

This caliber of headphone amplifier paired with some nice cans has the potential to truly surprise you, in terms of what a nice headphone setup is capable of.

Thanks in advance for reading and as always I appreciate any feedback. Enjoy!

    I haven't heard this piece, but from reading about it I always thought this looked like a piece that would be good for leisure, but might also have a real place in a studio or professional environment. Very cool all the way around.

    I agree, it has a premium price for sure. However, it could very well be the last headphone amp you'll ever need.
