At Innuos, we love to listen. We listen to music and we listen to you. We heard that the ZENmini could be improved if it had an SSD option so the ZENmini S takes one of our most popular music servers and replaces the hard drive with a quiet, lightning-quick Solid-State Drive (SSD). ZENmini S upgrades the RAM from 4GB to 8GB for additional performance benefits when searching for music or copying files. It even has a power-loss protection circuit so if you lose your power, you don’t lose your music. Owners of ZENmini Mk3 can upgrade to ZENmini S by contacting their dealer.
SSD options include 1TB, 2TB or 4TB capacities. ZENmini S upgrades are available now for owners of the ZENmini Mk3.

The ZENmini offers more than just casual usage. Floating optical and storage drives paired with a custom motherboard and premium components offer far greater musical performance than conventional computers and NAS drives.

Using our own exclusive innuOS operating system, our servers are configured and optimised from the ground up for the perfect balance of performance and simplicity. Control your library from the comfort of your tablet or smartphone – no computer required.
Superbly Solid State
The ZENmini S brings all the benefits of an SSD, including quieter operation and no moving parts to the venerable ZENmini mk3, whilst also increasing system RAM from 4GB to 8GB, achieving even greater performance from an already established, award-winning music server and streamer. The ZENmini S may be one of the best values in HiFi sources available anywhere.
MQA Core Decoding
ZENmini supports MQA Core Software Decoding, which means you can playback MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. MQA Core software decoding is provided free of charge and enables streaming and playback of MQA files up to 24bit/96 kHz for non-MQA DACs and up to 24bit/384 kHz for MQA Renderer/Decoder DACs. ZENmini can also passthrough MQA files to MQA Full Decoder DACs.
InnuOS Operating System 2.3 or higher is required for MQA Core Decoding.

``And also in terms of sound, as our hearing test on analog and digital output shows: With the melancholic ``Carolina Low`` of the indie folk band The Decemberist, it quickly becomes clear that the Innuos is particularly convincing in terms of space. Large and open, it develops a lively relationship between instruments, background and singer, which seems to draw us deeper and deeper into music.`` (Translated)
``The price-performance ratio of the Innuos ZENmini Mk3 is quite outstanding``
Fairaudio give a fantastic review to the ZENmini Mk3, where Good workmanship meets an exemplary intuitive user interface - not only the app, but also the browser-based music server management interface.
They were also greatly impressed by the sheer resolution and - especially - the wonderfully vivid, precise and spacious presentation of its sound quality.
“Le serveur DAC Innuos ZENmini Mk3 est une incontestable affaire à tous points de vue.”
BEST BUY Award received by Haute Fidelite for the ZENmini and LPSU with high ratings in Timbre, Dynamics, Soundstage and Price/quality Ratio
“Changing how I feel about digital music, this combo was a pleasant surprise.”
Great review by Audio Beatnik where he describes how the ZENmini and LPSU has changed his perception on digital systems and how he found it, “musically engaging”
“With the addition of the Innuos ZENmini Mk 3 and LPSU, my complacency is gone, and I’m excited about my digital sound again.”
A wonderful review by Audio Beat on the ZENmini and LPSU as, “highly engaging pair of music-makers.”
