Product Description

The Zen Mk. II is ideal for hi-fi enthusiasts who want the convenience of a digital source and improved sound stage and rhythm.

The Zen Mk. II’s hardware was designed to minimise power noise, which highly influences sound quality:

Linear power supply with ultra-low noise regulators and high-end capacitors.
Ultra-low noise USB output, with up to 10Xs less power noise than typical USB outputs.
Dedicated isolated Ethernet port with optimised settings to produce less noise during packet communications, improving sound quality for streamers compared to a direct router connection.
Medical grade mains filter
Its Quad-core Intel CPU and 4GB RAM based architecture enables fast performance with large libraries and the ability to play from memory, which substantially improves sound quality.

Innuos took care of every detail and the Chameleon LED is a proof of that. You can choose your Zen’s LED colour to match your existing system components or you can even turn it off when listening to music.

As your passion for music grows you might want to upgrade your hi-fi system. The Zen Mk.II is fully prepared for that as it is factory upgradable to a Zenith, allowing you to take your music to new heights.
