Game changing DAC
« on: December 17, 2019, 12:13:13 PM »
I cannot believe I used those words. But...I am sooo impressed with the iFi ZEN DAC

I brought in 3 out of curiosity. I used to bring in their iOne and preferred the Nuprime uDSD. Hence I stopped bringing them in.

Then THIS arrived!! Guys at waaay less than R3k you are in for a lovely surprise. Nice "organic" sound...I mean nice on the ear, no nasties, enveloping and competing way above its station!!  Im keeping 2 for any system I want to just upgrade.

The ZEN DAC supports PCM and DXD to 24-bit/384kHZ, DSD256[/size][/font][/size] and MQA[/color][/size][/font][/size]. DSD[/color][/size][/font][/size] remains ‘bit-perfect’ thanks to the [/size]True Native[/size] Burr Brown chip design.
