Cayin iHA-6

Background of i-Series

The i-series is Cayin’s lifestyle solution to modern music lovers. It stands for minimal design, flexible function, premium quality and a total solution to personal audio. To start with, we have introduced the iDAC-6 Audio D/A converter and iHA-6 Headphone Amplifier. More models will be added to this series later on so please stay tuned

iDAC-6 is a dedicated desktop DAC with an interesting dual output stage that offers versatile tonal characteristic for different applications. iHA-6 is a solid-state headphone amplifier with an innovative current adjustment to accommodate different headphone impedance/sensitivity characteristic. When stacked together, iDAC-6 and iHA-6 become a fully balanced headfi system at a less than 10”x10” footprint.

Design Highlight

  • Quadruple amplifier circuit with full discrete components and fully-balanced circuit design.

  • Independent power supply to Left and Right channel, reduce power interference in left and right channel.

  • Innovative Current and Gain control to maxima the compatibility with high or low impedance dynamic headphones and the latest planar headphones.

  • Two sets of audio inputs: one for RCA single-end and one for XLR balanced audio.

  • Four sets of headphone outputs: two sets of 6.3mm (High/Low impedance) TRS, 1 set of twin 3-pins XLR (balanced) and 1 set of 4-pins XLR (balanced).

  • Fashionable design, compact and minimal, can easily blend into SOHO or household environment.

Key Features

  • Push-pull amplification design with high power ultra-low on-resistance power MOSFET at power amplification stage, offers excellent dynamic performance.

  • Toshiba audio-grade FET were used in differential input circuit, to ensure common-mode noise and high quality audio performance

  • Premium grade ALPS 4 channel rotary potentiometer imported from Japan directly, durable, reliable and reputable audio quality.

  • Extensive protection to amplifier and headphone through comprehensive protection circuit including output DC offset voltage, delay mute when power up, and noise compensation when power down.

  • In-house designed premium grade toroidal transformer with low magnetic leakage and high power efficiency.

  • High capacitance filter capacitors were used (in excess of 40000uF)

  • Solid chassis with aluminum alloy and sand blast finishing, can eliminate exterior interference effectively.
