the new Zen Dac, with a V2 in the name, has been even better than its predecessor. The newly developed Xmos 16 core processor is much more powerful and 200 times faster than the previous one and enables full MQA decoding and can run DSD 256 in the same firmware. In addition, a new and better Jitterclock has been upgraded, which together with the processor refines the already good sound quality
This ZEN DAC V2 is the same award-winning hi-res USB DAC/headphone amp as before but with added oomph!
We’ve upgraded its digital engine from an 8 core XMOS chip to a 16 core chip. It’s ultra-capable while still being super-affordable.
