    Not all Bluetooth is created equal

    Have utter confidence in the sound quality of the ZEN Blue V2. It uses Bluetooth 5.0, and the newe Qualcomm 5100 chip to process all incoming Bluetooth data. The ESS Sabre DAC chip is there to ensure an extremely smooth digital to analogue conversion. Banish standard ‘Bluetooth Blues’ with the ZEN Blue V2.

    Chill with the best of both worlds

    Analogue - connect via RCA to amps or active speakers or via the 4.4mm output to amps/speakers with a balanced input. Digital - use the optical and coaxial connections to connect to anything with a built-in DAC and corresponding digital input – your TV, an AV amp or an external DAC in your hi-fi set-up.

    Balanced design is truly special

    The analogue output stage is balanced, not normally seen in DACs at this price point. Balanced means less noise, interference/crosstalk. It has RCA and balanced outputs at HiFi standard level; 2V SE and 4V BAL and is therefore compatible with both HiFi and Pro systems.

    High-Quality Components

    All underpinned by high-quality circuit components such as C0G capacitors from TDK and it’s fed by a precision low-noise power supply from Texas Instruments to make this a rare entry-priced beastie. Plus, iFi have improved their Global Master Timing (GMT) clock circuitry to give you an even smoother musical ride. It means >20db better performance for even more ZEN.
