ZEN Series

The ZEN series of music servers/streamers is our most awarded product line. From our standard Mk3 to our new Next Generation models, there is a wide range of options to choose from with increasing levels of realism and modularity.

All models can work as a Network Attached Storage (NAS) with buttonless automated CD ripping, Central Music Library Management system with multi-zone and UPnP server support, and a unifying Streamer for locally stored music, online radio and Hi-Fi music services like Qobuz, TIDAL, Deezer or HighResAudio – all controlled by our Sense app, or the choice of Roon Core operation.

Each ZEN series product offers successive increases in performance and sound quality. This is achieved through continuous improvements to power supply architecture, chassis construction, and sophisticated bespoke firmware to match the increasing quality of electronic components and their implementation designs.

The ZEN Series models were designed to enhance music playback by optimising three key areas:
Artboard 2

Minimising Power Noise
Artboard 2 copy

Reducing Vibration
Artboard 2 copy 2

Optimising Firmware
Each of these areas is increasingly built up throughout the range:

EMI-optimised custom motherboard
Optional External Linear Power Supply

Dual-Linear PSU with Nichicon CapacitorS and Medical-Grade mains filtering
Asymmetric isolation feet and vibration-dampened chassis
Independent Floating Optical and HDD platforms
Isolated Ethernet Ports
