Product Information

Even purer DAC performance.

iFi Audio's specialist desktop DAC, the ZEN DAC Signature v2, has been upgraded to bring you a more pure performance than the original.

Just like the original, its sole purpose is to feed an external amp, be it a headphone amp, or an amp and speakers. 

Unlike the original, it has a 16 core XMOS chip instead of 8. This new and improved digital engine is more powerful than ever. iFi also upgraded the clock circuitry to enhance the purist, audiophile design even further. 

Balanced. Blissfully quiet.

The ZEN DAC Signature v2 incorporates boutique parts and circuitry inspired by the iFi Pro range. It sports a fully-symmetrical, true differential balanced dual-mono signal stage with direct signal paths to ensure optimal signal purity. The new low jitter crystal clock means >20dB better noise reduction. 

A "Bit" special...

The ZEN DAC Signature v2's digital stage remains its True Native DAC architecture. It delivers Bit-Perfect up to 32-bit/384kHz and native DSD up to DSD256 as well as DXD. The iFi-programmed XMOS chip contributes to exemplary handling of digital audio signals as they are received, processed, and converted to analog form.

16 core means more

MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. Thanks to the processing power of the new 16 core XMOS chip, the ZEN DAC Signature v2 is now a full MQA decoder.
