    I see, super awesome then! :)

    I try to avoid double amping, when I can, although I also do some funky stuff as well, like using a Tube PRE-AMP just for adding some of that tube sweetness to the sound, when using my speakers :)

    I actually do that on-the-go as well actually :)

    Anyone else hear a pretty loud “pop” when adjusting the XBass II switch on the back of the xCAN, especially when going from bass to presence? I’m using the 2.5mm output over Bluetooth with the DM6 which are pretty sensitive and that’s probably why...

    Yes, it is normal :)

    For me, just a very slight "pop". I'm using 2.5mm as well.

    Loving this for my portable 'working from a cafe' setup: MacBook Pro > Roon > Shanling M5s (balanced line out) > iFi xCan (balanced input) > iFi IEMatch 2.5 > Campfire Solaris (Super Litz 2.5) :ksc75smile:

    Your video is great as always but I have an observation to make. I have both usb adapters and the usb 2.0 shown in this video is so much more elegant, portable and suits the usb port of xDSD perfectly for a mobile stuck.

    However, the usb 3 adapter, I also believe, as it is documented in the computer audiophile forums that provides much more improved sound quality. In addition, it is the adapter that also an ipurifier 3 can be used in this iOS chain because a power cable can be connected simultaneously.

    So if someone thinks to invest in only one of these two apple adapters should know that probably a trade off should be made.

    Is there any chance that the xCan or xDSD get an update for the "new" Bluetooth standards like APTX-HD or LDAC?? I'm sure many customers are still waiting and hope for that (since much cheaper brands already work with it or already got firmware updates for the HD Bluetooth codecs-for example Fiio or Earstudio).

    I am not sure if either of those could be implemented by firmware alone, I think you might have to wait for a version 2 of the hardware to support additional protocols. I'm sure one of the iFi reps will answer shortly, I'm with you in hoping it is possible, but from what I have read, I think you would have to replace the bluetooth chipset.

    Just published my review + snaps of the xCAN here, cheers!

    To have differnet BT than currently available, most likely heavier guns are needed than just FW upgrade. But we're not firm in this, our R&D suprized us more than once so who knows. For now we have nothing else to say on the LDAC, but rest assured we know what it is:ksc75smile:
