    ifI iCan Pro - Impressions & Discussion

    Thank you very much. In fact I have the Hugo 2 feeding my iCAN via good RCA cables, with great SQ. I did buy the 2.5mm to 3pin XLRs in order to experiment with the possibility to utilize DAC/AMP balanced out as an input into the iCAN's balanced input. I own several of these sources (earman...

    ifI iCan Pro - Impressions & Discussion

    The problem is simple. I connect balanced analog input to the XLR inputs which does not seem to work. I use two 3pin xlrs fed by 2.5mm balanced connector and cable.

    ifI iCan Pro - Impressions & Discussion

    On my 2nd hand iFi Pro iCAN, got a 2.5mm balanced connector connected via balanced cable to two 3 pin xlrs. It does not seem to work. Connected to a balanced dac (set to line out level) or connected to hugo2 (set to line level) via 3.5/2.5 adapter, I can hear very very low level sound...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Will swapping the (simple) Power Supply that came with my ZS, by the Elite PS, NOTICABLY improve sound quality (or just slightly)? If yes, then which voltage? 12v or 15v? Thanks

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    On 2.30.5. Still, when connecting either ZS's usb A ports to my Hugo 2 (via different usb cables) there is a significant bus noise. Music still plays via usb. Please advise. Edit: this only happens with the Hugo2. ZS does not recognize it. With othe dacs all yis well. Thanks Problem...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Running ver. 2.30.3. Usually connected via coax with very satisfactory audio quality. My DAC is the Chord Hugo 2. But, when connecting a good after market usb cable from either the ZS's anc or the other usb to the Hugo 2 usb, I get significant background noise (usb bus noise? ) , although it...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Since I have the iFi Pro iCan, I use its power supply (15v) to feed the ZS via the loop connector at the back of the iCan. Sounds better (I gueuss) than ZS with the cheap PS it came with. ZS sounds more open and clearer than my RPI 3b + JustBoon Hat, same coaxial connection to my Hugo 2. I...

    iFi audio GO blu - Super small. Super light. Super Sound.

    Can I assume that the Go Blu set to aptx adaptive with 888SoC phone (set to high quality in developers mode) provides similar audio quality as ldac or lhdc set to highest bandwidth (~900 kbs)? Thanks See configuration of quality for aptx adaptive (developers mode)

    iFi audio GO blu - Super small. Super light. Super Sound.

    Pressing the left button twice GoBlu states the Codec type and the bandwidth (KB). Pressing three times, sounds a beep and results changing the xbass/xspace indicator to either green or orange light. Is that a new mode or a new functionality. Please explain. Thanks.

    My iFi pro ican power supply feeds the iCan Pro and the SZ via the power loop connection at the back of the iCan. Satisfactory results.

    iFi audio GO blu - Super small. Super light. Super Sound.

    Thank you very much. Upgrade succeeded. iFi should update its documentation (same for the iFi zen stream).

    iFi audio GO blu - Super small. Super light. Super Sound.

    Trying to update the firmware. Loaded the fw zip file, extracted it, installed Gaia with all permidions. It seems to scan for something forever. GoBlu is activr. Nothing happens. Please advice Thanks

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Installed 2.30.1. iFi Zen Stream (as well as my Volumio Raspberry Pi) took some efforts (spotify app force stop and clear data, restarts) to be shown as selectsble audio output options in the Spotify app. Since it happened for both my Volumio applications, I am not sure if the issue resides...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Could not find how to upgrade Zen Stream firmware (beta). I did connect to iFi's wifi network (192.168.211.1/dev/) and approved beta. When I return and checked for updates it hangs and does not direct me to the latest beta firmware. I use android phone connected via wifi. Current ZS version is...

    iFi audio GO blu - Super small. Super light. Super Sound.

    Thanks I did enable eithe LDAC or LHDC in developpers options, to no avail. Each time I reconnect the BT player (GoBlu or Qudelix) it defaults to Aptx Adaptive. I assume this is an issue of my phone (Xiaomi 11t pro). With my old Samsung the Qudelix did always default to LDAC. Thanks for the...

    Thanks I have the LHDC switch there. I did set it. But when activating my GOBLU it goes gray and I have to set it again. I wonder if this is a Xiaomi issue.

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Got the iFi Zen Stream. Connected to Hugo2 and amplified with the iFi Pro iCan. Sounds superb playing Tidal Connect. Is there a possibility to use the iFi Pro iCan's DC LOOP OUT connection to feed the Zen Stream (using the iCan power supply to feed them both)? Thanks
