The ZEN Blue V2 is the same hi-res DAC that you know and love but better. They've added an improved Bluetooth® antenna that will increase range by up to 80%. Just add a smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac to the ZEN Blue V2 and chillax. Whether you’re into Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, Qobuz or Tidal, the ZEN Blue V2 will deliver fabulously flawless music to suit your mood via breathtaking hi-res Bluetooth®.
All current and future Bluetooth® audio formats are supported, including: Qualcomm’s aptX, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX Adaptive, LDAC, HWA/LHDC, hi-res Bluetooth® codecs (created by Sony and Huawei respectively), AAC (Apple’s favored format) and SBC, the standard Bluetooth® codec. Phew! This means that every possible source device is covered at the highest resolution Bluetooth® specification.
Have utter confidence in the sound quality of the ZEN Blue. It uses Bluetooth5.0®, the very latest version, and the newest Qualcomm 5100 chip to process all incoming Bluetooth® data. Their ESS Sabre DAC chip is there to ensure an extremely smooth digital-to-analog conversion. Banish standard “Bluetooth Blues” with the iFi hi-res implementation.
Chill with the best of both worlds.
The analog output stage is balanced, which isn’t normally seen in DACs at this price point. Balanced means less noise interference/crosstalk. This equals more ZEN in our book. It has RCA and balanced outputs at HiFi standard level. It has 2V SE and 4V BAL which makes it compatible with both HiFi and pro systems. This is all underpinned by high-quality circuit components such as C0G capacitors from TDK. This is all fed by a precision low-noise power supply from Texas Instruments to make this a rare entry-priced beastie. Plus, they've improved the Global Master Timing (GMT) clock circuitry to give you an even smoother musical ride. It means >20db better performance for even more ZEN.
