Chill out. At home. In the office.

The super-affordable compact DAC and headphone amp just got even better. This ZEN DAC V2 is the same award-winning hi-res USB DAC/headphone amp as before, but with added oomph! iFi has upgraded its digital engine from an 8 core XMOS chip to a 16 core chip. It's ultra-capable while still being super-affordable. Compact enough to use as a USB DAC/amp on your work desk and stylish enough to use at home with your favorite active speakers or amp, it delivers a level of specification and performance that punches above its super-affordable price tag. 

Smooth and Balanced

A new and improved low jitter, crystal clock means >20dB better performance. The super-low noise performance means the ZEN DAC V2 will remain quiet even in noisy situations.

Flexible

Switch effortlessly between 'variable' and 'fixed'. Set to 'Variable', use the ZEN DAC V2 as a pre-amp to feed a power amp or active speakers. On 'Fixed', bypass the volume control and connect to an external pre-amp or integrated amp.

Power. Drive. Performance

This headphone amp has PowerMatch - switchable gain to perfectly match your headphones. 

Ace of Bass

The ZEN DAC V2 boasts TrueBass. This proprietary tech is a switchable ‘bass boost’ operating in the analogue domain. There’s no DSP with iFi gear. TrueBass enhances the bass but does not muddy the mid-range. Perfect for use with IEMs or open-back headphones which often lack bass.
