X-CAN V3 Issue 1 April 2003
Thank you for purchasing the X-CAN Version 3 headphone amplifier. We sincerely hope that it will bring you many years of outstanding headphone listening pleasure.
All connections should be made before the mains adaptor is plugged in.
Installation Precautions
Your new X-CAN V3 is designed and built to provide trouble-free performance, but
as with all electronic devices, it is necessary to observe a few precautions :
Do not use the X-CAN V3 near water. The unit must not be exposed to
dripping or splashing and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases,
must be placed on the unit.
Keep the X-CAN V3 away from heat such as radiators. No naked flame
sources, such as lighted candles, should be placed on the unit.
Only use the mains adaptor provided. The use of other adaptors could
seriously damage your X-CAN V3.
Place all connecting cables where they are not likely to be walked on or
trapped by items placed on them.
X-CAN V3 will operate in accordance with its specifications within the
following environmental range :
Temperature 5 to 45 degrees Celsius
10 to 90% non condensing
This Hi-Fi product has been tested to ensure that its operation is not adversely affected by normal background levels of Radio Frequency Interference
(R.F.I.), and that it does not itself generate excessive amounts of interference.
However, if a problem persists, please contact your Musical Fidelity agent.
Never open the case of the X-CAN V3 yourself, as this will invalidate the guarantee. There are no user adjustments inside. Please refer all service work to an
authorised Musical Fidelity agent.
The X-CAN V3 can easily be connected either to an available line level output or into the tape monitor loop of most amplifier systems.
If your system has an unused line level output (for instance an unused tape
record output) simply connect a set of RCA/phono leads from this output to
the LINE IN sockets on the X-CAN V3 rear panel as shown below :

Line In
If there are no spare outputs, the X-CAN V3 can be connected between your
amplifier and tape recorder (in the tape monitor loop) in the following way :
Connect a set of RCA/phono leads from the amplifier Tape Record outputs
(sometimes labelled Tape Out) to the X-CAN V3 LINE IN sockets on the
rear panel. Then connect another set of RCA/phono leads from the LINE
OUT sockets on the X-CAN V3 rear panel to the Line In (or Tape Record)
input of your tape recorder. See below :

With either type of connection, whichever source is selected by your
amplifier, it will automatically be routed to the X-CAN V3 for headphone
The X-CAN V3 is capable of producing high listening levels at very low distortion
with most headphones. Be aware that prolonged high level listening can permanently damage your hearing. Ensure that the volume control on your amplifier is
at minimum when turning the X-CAN V3 power supply on or off.
The X-CAN V3 has been designed so that it may be left on indefinitely, but
please note that the mains adapter may become warm to the touch - this is
