The ZEN is a true HiFi component with a number of improvements on top of the ones offered by the ZENmini.
Linear Power Supply
The ZEN uses our linear power supply design with ultra-low noise regulators (40 uV), specialised audio capacitors (Nichicon MUSE) and medical-grade mains filter to ensure audio transparency and realism.
Ultra-low Noise Streamer Output
Dual-ethernet ports with isolation transformers on Ethernet ports significantly improve sound quality on streamers when compared to a direct router connection.
Vibration kills good sound quality so we have added significant anti-vibration treatment to chassis and electronic components.
With 2GB dedicated memory, the ZEN loads music directly to memory for playback so that it doesn’t need to engage the hard drive during playback, improving sound quality.
