The iFi Audio ZEN Signature Set DAC and CAN 6XX Headphone Amplifier make a perfect combination, with high quality digital audio conversion and powerful headphone sound. Connect the two with an included Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced cable for the best headphone listening experience.

The iFi Audio ZEN DAC Signature hi-res USB DAC offers detail for all your digital music, creating a performance greater than you might expect from its compact design. Create a high quality desktop system for improved PC audio. Simply connect via the USB port and add the ZEN DAC Signature into your hi-fi system and connect it to your powered speakers or amp.

The ZEN DAC Signature supports a wide variety of file types, including PCM and DXD up to 32-bit/384kHz as well as MQA files and DSD, meaning you won’t have to worry about compatibility. With a True Native Burr-Brown DAC chip design, hear your music bit-perfect, in hi-res.

With a balanced analogue stage, the ZEN DAC Signature keeps the left and right channels separated, resulting in a super low-noise performance with minimal crosstalk, so you hear more of the music. The ZEN DAC Signature features Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced outputs on the back panel. With variable and fixed output, the ZEN DAC Signature can be used as a preamp in variable mode, acting as a preamp to powered speakers or with fixed output sends the signal directly to an external integrated amplifier. This gives you the best of both worlds, with flexibility on how you want to connect.

With a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, connect your PC or smartphone with a USB-B input for hi-res audio, with outputs including industry standard RCA and a 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced output, to take advantage of the ZEN DAC Signature’s balanced circuitry.

The iFi Audio ZEN CAN Signature expands on the ZEN CAN headphone amp, improving the sound quality and maintaining the versatile features of the regular version. A new feature of the ZEN CAN Signature is ActivEQ which creates a specific EQ curve designed to improve the performance of a popular pair of headphones, the MassDrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX, based on the Sennheiser HD650 headphones, with a quality midrange response, but with idiosyncrasies in the bass and treble frequencies. The ZEN CAN Signature aims to boost the performance right across the frequency spectrum with the ActivEQ, to bring the best from these popular headphones. Without this engaged, the headphone amplifier presents a balanced EQ, ideal for a wide range of headphones.

The gain control is perfect to match the output with any headphones, including higher loads to drive the headphones accurately and clearly. The XSpace control is able to widen the soundstage of your headphones, delivering a more spacious and speaker-like musical experience.

The ZEN CAN Signature uses a fully balanced circuit design, splitting the left and right audio channels for lower noise and less distortion. With 1600mW into 32 Ohms, the ZEN CAN Signature is able to comfortably drive any headphones, including current-hungry designs such as planar magnetic headphones. Ultra-low distortion and rich detail let you experience all your music with clarity.

With RCA and a 3.5mm input, the ZEN CAN Signature can easily be integrated into any system, whether a simple desktop system for your PC audio, or a high quality hi-fi system. A Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced input lets you take advantage of the balanced circuity, and is able to connect to XLR via a specialist cable. Headphone outputs include a standard 6.3mm and a balanced Pentaconn 4.4mm, which is ideally suited for high impedance headphones.
