The Zen DAC by iFi Audio is a compact desktop DAC, that brings audiophile sound to your home audio system. The True Native Burr Brown DSD / DXD-D/A-converter allows high quality playback of audio files up to Quad DSD256 and PCM 384kHz. Through the USB3.0 interface, the ZEN DAC can be connected to any device. Thanks to the both unbalanced 6.3mm and balanced 4.4mm jack port, it is possible to connect any headphones onto the DAC. The balanaced 4.4mm port can also be used to connect to a BAT amplifier or with an adapter (4.4mm > XLR) to connect to a Pro Active speaker. The analogue RCA stereo output allows you to connect to your home audio system or to your active speakers. The flowing curves and stylish design of the aluminium housing is the cherry on top.



There is no power supply included in the delivery scope, since the DAC can be supplied through the USB port alone. However, a 5V power supply, such as the iFi Power oder the iFi Power X, is recommended, if you are looking for clean supply of power than from your computer.
