Product Information

High-resolution Bluetooth DAC

This ultra-affordable hi-res Bluetooth® DAC enables you to "chillax" in style. Just add smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac.

Chill. Relax. Enjoy.

You only achieve true ZEN when totally chilled. Have peace of mind (and pocket) with the ZEN Blue.

Whether you’re a Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, or Qobuz lover or totally prefer Tidal, the ZEN Blue will deliver fabulously flawless music to suit your mood via breathtaking hi-res Bluetooth®.

Hi-res to the nth degree.

All current and future Bluetooth® audio formats are supported. This includes Qualcomm’s aptX and aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX Adaptive, LDAC, and HWA/LHDC, hi-res Bluetooth® codecs created by Sony and Huawei respectively, AAC, Apple’s favored format, and SBC, the standard Bluetooth® codec.

Not all Bluetooth is created equal.

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. The 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.

Enjoy. Your way.

Chill with the best of both worlds.

Analog – connect via RCA to amps or active speakers or via the 4.4mm output to amps/speakers with a balanced input.

Digital – use the optical and coaxial connections to connect to anything with a built-in DAC and corresponding digital input; your TV, an AV amp, or an external DAC in your hi-fi set-up.

Balanced design is special indeed.

The analog output stage is balanced, not normally seen in DACs at this price point. Balanced means less noise interference/crosstalk.

It has RCA and balanced outputs at HiFi standard level; 2V SE and 4V BAL and thus are compatible with both HiFi and Pro systems.

All underpinned by high-quality circuit components such as C0G capacitors from TDK. All fed by a precision low-noise power supply from Texas Instruments to make this a rare entry-priced beastie.
