Power is one thing, but anyone own this amp and care to comment on how the pairing sounds? So far I've never heard anything better than the Bottlehead Crack for the HD-650s.

One of the best amps for the money. The original iCAN garnered a lot of praises on head-fi. The SE has 10x more power, and some technologies trinkled down from the Pro line. At $300 it's a no brainer, pairs very well with iDSD or iDAC from iFi as well. I have iDSD and it's probably the best investment I've made on audio equipment so far. I might jump into this deal since I have a crack and I'm always curious how it sounds with the 650.

Why are there so many millionaires walking around with $700+ iPhone while I can only afford a free Lumia 635? Please tell me the secret.

It's alright. I have both and I like the iCan for the "3D" feature. Though it doesn't really matter since this isn't a portable amp and I have it plugged into a computer where software can give you a better 3D / live effect.

With all effects off though, you can really tell that this isn't a tube amp when you compare it to the Bottlehead Crack. Tubes work very well when paired with the HD600/650/800 line and sounds sort of stale with the iCan. If you are a purist that doesn't care about the 3D effect from iCan and want solid state instead of tube, I'd look elsewhere.

Someone on head-fi says Liquid Carbon sounds better than Crack with HD650. Today is last for anyone interested in getting Carbon

Bottlehead Crack is an awesome amp kit. I was gonna suggest getting standalone Sennheiser cans and a BC amp. If you wait for good deals on both, you may be able to sneak in under this price.

I saw SE and thought it was single ended class A amp. I knew it would be too good to be true. Looks more like a class AB amp.

Its a class A amp.

I had the original ican micro and it was a great amp.

Seriously this thing is the best bang for the buck if your looking for a desktop rig.


i dont need another amp, so I'll wait for the hd650 to hit 275 by itself again.
