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 balanced output power of >14,000mW and single-ended power output of >4,800mW. And with variable gain, you can adjust the Pro iCAN Signature to drive your headphone of choice.
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. 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.
The Pro iCAN Signature wouldn’t be ours without their 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 their 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.
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 their unique S-Balanced 3.5mm output. their S-Balanced output cuts distortion by 50% with single-ended headphones connections.
The Pro iCAN Signature, ships with their 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 – they left no stone unturned in their quest for the cleanest, purest power for the Pro iCAN Signature (same for Pro iDSD Signature too!)
