ZEN One Dac has inputs for USB, Optical, Coax and a high quality Bluetooth input. Connect a computer, phone, streamer (like iFi's own ZEN Stream), TV, cd player etc, then feed it to your stereo, powered speakers or headphone amp.
ZEN One Dac supports MQA for wired playback. High quality bluetooth codecs like LDAC, apt-x Adaptive, Low Latency use a high gain antenna and the ZEN One dac for shockingly good BT audio quality, making it very flexible. It has both stereo rca outputs and fully balanced 4.4mm output - no volume control, it is a dac only.
ZEN One supports native decoding of huge files like DSD and PCM up to 32bit/384khz, run through a Femto precision clock. USB input uses a powerful 16 core XMOS processor for reliable connection. All signals benefit from Signature grade upgraded parts in the analogue section, such as high end capacitors and resistors with higher precision and ultra low noise.
