Hi Roman. The Zen Can has a 1 year warranty, so if you bought it less than 12 months ago, give iFi a call.

If not, an electronics repair shop would be your best bet.

Hi Roman_M  :)

Sorry to hear/read that; fortunately iFi is reliable manufacturer. Claim your warranty they will help you out, no doubt they have a very efficient customer support.  ;)

I'm in a very weird place as a 45 years old gamer... facing the fact that I have to change the way I enjoy this hobby.

Me coming from Atari, NES, SNES you know old school games that make you suffer to enjoy or achieve something, and then in my youth all the competitive hardcore like CS, Quake, sweating grinding.

Now, my reflexes are not even close that what used to be, I use bi-focal glasses my sight is always tired and blurry now I'm dealing with a hearth condition that demands low stress levels (living in a town with cartel war is a challenge) I'm facing the sad reality that I can't play FPS shooters anymore...

Hi-Res Music listening, building custom keyboards had been my new hobbies, I keep playing this particular FPS game with my friends, we have thousands hours on it, taking it easy... its a poker night and I do it more for the social aspect of having friends to talk, more than actually play.

However, I missed a new FPS game, because BF2042 was disappointing. So, I pick up CoD MW2, enjoyed the campaign, then jump to MP and oh god... it was rough, pissed because I can't play like I used to be, went back to the drawing board wrote some scripts to get an competitive edge (made a very helpful semi-aimbot -not exaggerate) and went back to MP, right away: positive KD, but a moment of clarity hit me... man I really need all these helps to be able to play a game and enjoy it?... - feel dirty and went back to music listening XD.

Sucks to get old, I guess.  :-\  :'(

Can anyone reccomended a headset to pair with the Astro Mixamp? I'm wanting to replace my a40 tr as it's literally falling apart.

Or would I be better off replacing the mixamp too? I'm on XSX. Thanks in advance

Yup, totally compatible and if you read the first page might find some EQ to make it even more revealing for listen footsteps.
