    For clarity: if I have some non-hard planars (such as Edition X, Diana, Kennerton Odin, etc.) and plug them into PRO iDSD's 6.3mm out, will the result be necessarily worse than if I drive them from the single-ended 6.3mm. jack of the PRO iCan amp?

    Hard to know, as nobody outside of CanJam NYC and some other select few have heard the Pro iDSD, much less compared SE outputs with that very specific set of headphones.

    I'm general, I would guess no. The iCAN should outperform the iDSD. More power flexibility is almost always better.

    I apologize if my English is not perfect. Of course, I did not mean only these models, but any other easy-to-drive planar headphones.

    Higher power and balanced output make up the advantage of the iCan when they are useful.
    But what if we put iDSD and iCan in equal conditions, where these features of iCan are not in demand? I hope we soon find out.

    If you're willing to take a manufacturer's word into accout, Pro iCAN is our TOTL amplifier, second to none. The one in Pro iDSD is very good, especially after taking into consideration that it's one of many features of a DAC and not a standalone product, but not that good.

    As we've explained above, the headphone amplifier circuitry inside our pro iDSD is one out of many functions this product has. We implemented it simply because we already had our own proprietary tech and enough space to do so. Point being, this is a very nice addition to a DAC and no, you're not paying twice for it. :grin:

    Bonjour,

    regrettable que le iDSD ne soit pas encore prêt, je suis aussi d'accord pour dire que la prise XLR 4 points aurait été plus judicieuse, que le 2.5, ( du n'importe quoi, étonnant de la part de ifi pro ) je possède le ifi pro ican, et j'attends le iDSD pro pour le comparer au T+a dac8,
    pur le moment on ne sait de quoi sera composé le iDSD, combien de convertisseur par canal, pas de photos, pour le moment aucune information, dommage,.....merci
    Tony

    People keep saying this (about "paying for an amp").

    But look at all the pro DACs out there (Benchmark to the CHORD DAVE). They all have'em!

    I just don't think of the Pro iDSD that way.

    Il y a plein de photos et un fil complet avec toutes les infos. S'il vous plaît lire à travers le fil entier.

    So is idsd pro the only quad dac? Also I’ve never heard a resistor ladder dac l wonder if you could notice a difference between the iDSD pro and something like the holo audio spring dac or cyan as example

    There are plenty of resistor ladder DACs (some of which costs tens of thousands of dollars). I'm not 100% sure, but I thought the Schiit Yggy was a type of RL DAC (but I could be wrong).

    [QUOTE = "GHoldridge, poste: 14054113, membre: 436726"] Donc idsd pro est-il le seul quad dac? Aussi, je n'ai jamais entendu une échelle de résistance dac je me demande si vous pourriez remarquer une différence entre le pro iDSD et quelque chose comme le printemps holo audio dac ou cyan comme exemple [/ QUOTE]

    bonjour, le T+A dac8 est aussi à quatre convertisseurs par canal,
