SOLD: iFi iCAN Amp with external battery pack (shipping/pp included)

Will Ship To: USA

Up for sale is my iFi iCAN Micro amplifier along with a 9v battery pack that powers it very well. I love this amp and even wrote a glowing review on here about it, but I have decided to switch to an even more portable setup. Included is the amp and all original accessories and box, along with the battery described here: http://www.bixpower.com/BAT-BX948-p/bat-bx948.htm%C2%A0  The battery includes AC and 12v chargers and the cable and particular connector needed to hook up to the amp

 

Amp and the battery are in great condition and work great, with just a few barely visible scuff marks from using it as a transportable rig. I already installed the included clear rubber feet on the amp to hold it apart from the battery. Note: This is the original version of the iCAN and it does NOT have the gain switches found on newer versions. Ifi is now offering attenuators to iFi amp owners that allow the use of higher sensitivity headphones with their amps and would replace the need for the gain switches. I used one with this amp and it worked great to eliminate hiss and provide a more usable volume range on iems and high sensitivity headphones. I will include a 24 db attenuator (see photo) made by iFi that will allow the use of almost any headphones with this amp.

 

The battery smooths out the sound and of course reduces the AC noise, although the included AC power supply on this amp is also a good one. I have enjoyed being able to pick it up and carry it from room to room as a transportable setup. Also note: the Tera player, straps and RCA interconnect shown in the pictures are not included :)


This is the #1 rated desktop amp here on headfi: http://www.head-fi.org/products/ifi-ican-headphone-amplifier

 

Priority mail shipping in the USA and paypal is included. No international shipping. (Sorry, but not interested in trades right now.)

Not clear on this, forgive my ignorance. Is this a 2 piece amp and battery set up, to which I'd add a DAP for 3 pieces?

The iCAN is a small desktop amp, and I purchased a separate battery to power it instead of the AC adapter which is also included.

 

So yes this is a two piece setup, and you would still need a source like a DAC or DAP.

 

The battery improves the sound of the iCAN and allows me to pick it up and carry it into another room or outside with me here in sunny Arizona.
