A Fully Balanced Headphone Amplifier

The Cayin iHA-6 is a solid state, fully balanced desktop headphone amplifier. The iHA-6 pairs beautifully with the Cayin iDAC-6 hybrid solid state/tube high-resolution DAC. Add the iDAP-6 digital audio player/streamer/server and you've got a complete system for enjoying the headphones or IEMs of your liking. The units are designed to be stacked, with the the amp on the bottom, the DAC in the middle, and the DAP on top. You may also pair the iHA-6 with other components of your choosing.

Enjoy the neutrality, power, articulation, and detail of the iHA-6. Far from being a dry or sterile sound, the iHA-6 exudes musicality and smoothness while exhibiting a high level of resolution for the discerning audiophile

Sleek, Eye-Catching Design

The sleek, eye-catching design includes an aluminum alloy panel with sandblast finishing to reduce external interference. The large silver control knob with a black middle reflects Cayin's quality and tradition.

The iHA-6 has balanced and single-ended analog inputs, plus two sets of balanced and two sets of single-ended headphone outputs. There are two single-ended 6.35mm headphone jacks, one optimized for low-impedance headphones and the other for higher-impedance headphones. There is also a left/right pair of balanced 3-pin XLR headphone jacks, plus a balanced stereo 4-pin XLR headphone jack.

iHA-6 Headphone Amp Technology

The iHA-6 has a quadruple amplifier circuit with full discrete components and fully-balanced circuit design. It features reduced power interference, independent power supply to left and right channel, plus extensive protection to the amplifier and headphone through comprehensive protection circuit. A Toshiba audio-grade FET in differential input circuit ensures common-mode noise and high-quality audio performance. The iHA-6 is a push-pull amplification design with a  low-resistance MOSFET at its  power amplification stage.

Cayin is a division of Zhuhai Spark Electronic Equipment Co. Ltd. Founded in 1993, the company manufacturers hi-fi products at a variety of price points, including tube amplifiers, CD players, speakers, digital to analog converters (DACs), digital audio players (DAPs), and more.

Design Highlights:

  • Quadruple amplifier circuit with full discrete components and fully-balanced circuit design.
  • Independent power supply to Left and Right channel, reduces power interference in left and right channel.
  • Innovative Current and Gain control to maximize 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.

Technical Highlights:

  • 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
