Product Information

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.


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.
