    My review is finally posted after so many months in the related review thread. My sincerest apologies to ifi audio for such a delay.

    I was told that If I kept the Charger plugged into the Device when it is Fully Charged it will decreases the lifespan of the internal Battery on the Device. Is this the case for this AMP when using it as a permanent Desktop AMP? Does this AMP have a smart feature that preserve the Internals Battery Lifespan?

    Do I plug the USB Port into the Outlet or PC for Desktop?

    Usually, that is true and most devices will have their life lowered considerably is usef while charging.

    On the other hand, some companies will implement a protection, so the device stops charging once the battery is full. I know iFi does this for some devices, but I have no data whether it is implemented for xCAN @iFi audio

    As for the final question, your power outlet will charge it much faster, which is better. Chargining slower will increase the battery temps for longer periods of time, which usually lowers battery life.

    Yes, battery wise power circuit is pretty much the same.

    Super awesome! :)

    I actually didn't have this info, thank you for sharing!

    So, this means that you can safely use it while carging, in desktop mode! :)

    Yep, I got both.

    I haven't tested for a very long time, and I'm only talking about the Single Ended output here, but I think xDSD would be the one over BT. Not quite that enthusiastic about the BT module in xCan compared to xDSD. In both, the BT part doesn't get as good as the wired part though... :)

    I saw the posts a few pages back saying this is great combo with Opus #1S. Just wondering if anyone could provide more detail on the sonic differences they find using the xCAN wired, paired with a DAP, rather than just straight from the DAP alone?

    I ask as I’m wondering about pairing an xCAN with an A&K SR15 - anyone on this thread tried this combo?
     
  12. Dobrescu George
    Does SR15 have a line out?

    xCAN needs one to sound its best :)
     
  13. someyoungguy
    It has a line out setting in the menus, to switch between headphone/line out mode for the 3.5mm jack. I’m not sure but maybe the 2.5mm balanced can also be set to line out mode - haven’t got it at hand right now to check.
     
  14. Dobrescu George
    I see.

    In that case, xCAN should work just fine :)

    Although it has to be a true line out. Not just maximum headphone volume, but actual clean line signal. I do not know the SR15 to say for sure if it sports that.

    with xCAN, you can expect a very organic and natural experience, with a lot of life, especially if you're using IEMs.

    It can be respectably clean even with volume control somewhere along the road turned off :L3000:
