icOn 5 Dual

I’m truly impressed by the new icOn 5. It signifies a substantial leap ahead from the already outstanding and widely popular 4PRO models. The inclusion of the optional input buffer, coupled with the lower inductance autoformers, along with the finely adjustable volume control in increments of 0.5 dB and the tilt control, results in an astonishingly lifelike auditory experience.

The Dual version is a true high-end Jolly Joker autoformer-based line control unit. It features both RCA and XLR input and output sockets, making it an ideal match for most audiophiles with both analogue (like vinyl) and digital sources (DAC, CD player). It offers remarkably precise volume adjustment capabilities, spanning 136 steps within an 83 dB range. The Dual has a fully passive analogue signal path between the RCA sockets and active, electronically balanced circuits between the XLR sockets.     More info…
