I'm glad you like it! The 3D setting on the iCan is what sets it apart other amps. I have gotten so used to it by now that if I go back to 'normal' amps, I think I will have withdrawal symptoms.. I have tried a variety of surround sound DSPs and nothing comes close to this. It does make the sound brighter, but at least it doesn't distort the sound or lose details. And I guess i'm lucky, because my headphones happen to be light on treble so this sort of makes up for it.
When I was talking with Vince from ifi at the recent headfi meet in London, I was expressing interest in buying the upcoming small, battery version of the iCan to pair with my dx100. He thought I was mad as I a). Already own an iCan and b) the dx100 has a good amp already.......I told him I was addicted to the 3d sound and needed it on the go. It's true there is something so involving about that sound that, as you say, makes you miss it when it's not around.
