Zenith Mk. II


SKU: N/A Category: Brand:

Product Description

The Zenith is Innuos’s flagship model. It combines features not seen before in a music server.

The Zenith takes the Zen’s ability to reduce power noise to the next level by offering an innovative Triple-Linear design, which provides separate power to different parts of the system and SSD storage, which also plays an important role in reducing power as well as mechanical noise. Additionally, like the Zen Mk.II, it also has a ultra-low noise USB output as well as a Dedicated Isolated Ethernet port for streamers and a Medical Mains Filter.

Its Quad-core Intel CPU and 8GB 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 Zenith’s LED colour to match your existing system components or you can even turn it off when listening to music.
