Product Information

High-resolution Bluetooth DAC.

The ultra-affordable hi-res Bluetooth DAC just got even better!

The ZEN Blue V2 is the same hi-res DAC you know and love, but better. iFi added an improved Bluetooth® antenna that will increase range by up to 80%. Just add a smartphone, tablet, PC, or MAC. Whether you're into Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, Qobuz, or Tidal, the ZEN Blue V2 will deliver 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, HWA/LHDC, hi-res Bluetooth® codecs created by Sony and Huawei respectively, AAC, Apple's favored format, and SBC, the standard Bluetooth® codec. 

Enjoy. Your way.

Relax 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, or an external DAC in your hi-fi set-up.

Balanced design is truly special.

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 are compatible with both HiFi and Pro systems. 

All underpinned by high-quality circuit components such as C0G capacitors from TDK and it’s fed by a precision low-noise power supply from Texas Instruments to make this a rare entry-priced beastie. Plus iFi has improved their Global Master Timing (GMT) clock circuitry to give you an even smoother musical ride. It means >20db better performance for even more ZEN.

great item!
Perfect solution for adding bluetooth capabilities to my vintage 2-channel stereo system. Able to seamlessly stream from my cell phone. No instructions included, but setup was highly intuitive. Within two minutes of opening the box, I was up and running!
