Quick notes on the upcoming Musical Fidelity X-Can v8 headphone Amp.


The output impedance is now only 1.5 - 2 ohm because of a solid state buffer beyond the triode input stage. This allows the amp to deliver a flat response with any headphone.


The v8 is a bit larger than the v3, but is still smaller than an average component.


The v8 has two headphone outputs.


The newest feature is the USB input. No details are available on the DAC or software requirements, if any.
