My iCAN does not have gain controls, and the TDS202 does boost the signal. So these attenuators should help give me a more usable volume range on the iCAN. Simpler than selling it and getting the newer version with gain controls.

Nirmalanow,

 

Speak to Avatar and ask them to send you a set of iFi attenuators.

 

Let us know what you think of them! :bigsmile_face:

Estoy de vuelta a mi Sony MA-900. Los HD700s ERAN Ligeramente Más refinado, Pero yo REALMENTE gusta el tono de La Sony Es Mejor Asi de Que vendieron el los HD700s. Estoy Escuchando en Este Momento Con La Investigación TDS202 acústica de la Cadena y El Nivel de detalle, Claridad y amplitud es CASI alucinógeno. Simplemente Me Tiene En Un bonito Estado Expandido de la Relajación. Entre el TDS202, el 3D en el iCAN y el sonido natural, de par en par De Las MA900s Sony, el sonido de es A Veces tan Lejos de mi cabeza es espeluznante.

 

Yo también dejo el XBASS lo alto. Que Puede del pecado del mar el enfoque más "neutral", Pero Sí HACER Que el sonido muy terroso y Cálido, El Pecado enturbiar el sonido en Absoluto.

 

Seré curioso Porción ver QUÉ Tan Cerca del amplificador Nano Más Portátil Viene A Este sonido CUANDO Llegue ....

+1.i love my MA900!.

Thanks for translating my post....I have several free spiritual ebooks translated into Spanish here: http://endless-satsang.com/ebooks-espirituales-gratis.htm

 

The MA900s are sounding even better now that I have a couple of 12db attenuators in line going into the TDS202. Now I can use the iCAN volume control more in the 10:00 to 1:00 positions, so it seems to let the iCAN sound fuller and more present.

 

I noticed cesalru that you are selling your iCAN. Don't you find it a good match with your Sony MA-900s?

Hello. I have browsed their ebooks and have had good impressions!. The iCan combination with the MA900 is perfect, as with other hp, but I needed something portable and quality, but not as much power as Micro and nano is great ... When you have it and analyze, understand. When you get to the Nano?. Greetings weekend.

Ah, my Micro iCan does have gains, and I like the MA900 with 0 db ...

My Nano should have shipped out this past week. I look forward to comparing it to the larger amp. It would be nice to have a more portable setup, although I do use a battery with my iCAN so I can take it around the house and outside in the yard.

I read your post on the battery in the iCan, great solution ... I advance a detail that differentiates the Micro and Nano: Treatment and positioning of voices and scene!. 

 

Greetings.

Perhaps it is time to find a smaller battery to go along with the Nano.

The Nano has a built in battery so it is truly a portable amp off the shelf. Note: The Nano battery is rated for 70 hours of use!

I didn't know that.  How long does it last on a charge?
