Thank you for purchasing the CAN from the ZEN series. The CAN is a balanced audio amplifier.

  1. Power switch
    This is the power switch.
  2. Input channel switch
    Use the button to choose between the following input options:
    Input 1: RCA
    Input 2: Single-ended 3.5mm
    Input 3: Balanced 4.4mm
  3. Gain selection: 0dB/6dB/12dB/18dB
    Always start from 0dB and then increase the gain level to attain an enjoyable and comfortable level of volume from the headphones.
    Warning: at the outset do not use excessive gain, otherwise, damage to hearing or connected headphones may ensue. AMR/iFi audio is not responsible for any damage/injury from misuse.
  4. Analogue Volume Control
    At normal listening levels, the volume control should be around the 12 o’clock position. Increase the gain level to enjoy a higher listening level.
  5.  Single-ended 6.3mm output
    For connecting single-ended 6.3mm headphones. With single-ended 3.5mm headphones, connect with a 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter.
  6. Balanced 4.4mm analogue output
    For connecting balanced 4.4mm headphones.
    Tip: As ZEN CAN is balanced, we recommend the 4.4mm output.
  7. XBass® LED
    XBass® (On/Off ) was uniquely designed to extend bass response
    to suit different headphones. It is a pure analogue signal circuit.
  8. 3D® Matrix LED
    The 3D® Matrix (on/off ) recreates a holographic sound field.
    It is a pure analogue signal processing circuit designed for listening to headphones as if one was listening to speakers. This
    addresses the ‘music inside the head’ sensation, which makes for unsettling listening.
    Tip: Sonically-hindering DSP is NOT used for XBass® nor 3D® Matrix systems. They use the highest-quality discrete components and operate purely in the analogue domain. Hence all the clarity and resolution of the original music is retained.
  9. Settings
    This button chooses between:
    – Off
    – 3D®
    XBass®

  11. Single-ended 3.5mm input
    For connecting single-ended 3.5mm input.
  12. RCA analogue input
    This is an analogue input.
  13. Balanced 4.4mm analogue output
    This is an analogue output via 4.4mm > XLR or other balanced interconnects. You could use this for an active speaker.
    Tip: As ZEN CAN is balanced, this is the recommended output.
  14. DC 5V power
    Please connect ZEN CAN to the enclosed power supply, ZEN CAN ONLY be powered by 5 volts.
    Tip: For best performance upgrade the enclosed power supply to a super-low noise power adapter such as iFi iPower or iPower X.
