ZENith Mk3

01.

Triple-Linear Power Supply

Inspired from the high-end power supply engineering of the SE, the ZENith Mk3 benefits from new premium Mundorf capacitors with ultra-low noise regulators and a medical-grade mains filter to provide even greater audio clarity.

02.

Custom Motherboard

Our own custom-made Innuos motherboard is completely reworked for optimised audio performance. Sources of EMI have been removed and internal clocks optimised, resulting in a “blacker” music background and enhanced realism.

03.

Ultra-low Noise Streamer Output

Dual-ethernet ports with isolation transformers provide an ultra-low noise network connection for your streamer, removing noise from the path and improving sound quality on all network audio.

04.

Anti-vibration and EMI Treatment

New asymmetrical isolation feet derived from our ZENith SE plus added treatment to the chassis help to combat harmful vibration that affect a clean audio signal, with even greater treatment now applied to the SSD.

05.

In-Memory Playback

With 4GB dedicated memory, the ZENith loads music directly to memory for playback so that it doesn’t need to engage the SSD during playback, improving sound quality.

Reviews

``The Innuos ZENith Mk3 is the ZEN Mk3 on steroids. It is also a one box server/streamer solution of high quality.``
Hans Beekhuyzen has followed up on his comprehensive ZEN Mk3 video review by taking a look at the next model up in the range - the ZENith Mk3.

``It keeps surprising me to what degree sound quality can be improved by taking more care when sending a digital signal over USB to a DAC - and the ZENith Mk3 does a damn good job doing just that. ``
