The iFi Audio ZEN Blue garnered acclaim, including a '5-star' review from What Hi-Fi in 2020. Now, the ZEN Blue V2 takes it a step further with an upgraded Bluetooth antenna, extending its range by up to 80%. This enhancement ensures superior performance in larger rooms and open-plan spaces.
Seamless Wireless Sound
The ZEN Blue V2 continues to provide a simple yet high-quality solution for wirelessly transmitting audio from your smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac to your Hi-Fi or speakers. It liberates your music from your device's speakers, offering pristine sound quality, whether you stream from Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, or any other music app.
Experience Crystal-Clear Hi-Res Sound
While Bluetooth isn't new, transmitting at such high quality is exceptional. The ZEN Blue V2 supports premium Bluetooth formats, including HWA (Hi-Res Wireless Audio) by LHDC, Qualcomm's aptX, aptX HD, LDAC, and HWA, along with Apple's AAC. Bluetooth audio has evolved significantly in recent years, delivering remarkable sound quality.
Hi-Fi Quality Electronics
Inside the ZEN Blue V2, you'll find Hi-Fi grade electronics, including the ESS Sabre DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter), akin to those in high-end AV receivers. The discreet circuit layout incorporates top-quality audio components, such as OV series op-amps, Texas Instruments power supply, and TDK (Class 1 ceramic) capacitors.
The meticulous implementation of high-quality components on the board results in exceptional sound quality, with minimal background noise, distortion, and unparalleled clarity. Your music comes to life with natural, lifelike detail.
Versatile Sound Output Options
Connect the ZEN Blue V2 to your Hi-Fi, AV, or speaker system in your preferred way. Choose between optical and coaxial connections for digital amps or AV receivers, or opt for RCA phono outputs for Hi-Fi amps or mini systems. For the highest sound quality, a balanced output is also available.
Balanced Output for Professional Sound Quality
The 4.4mm balanced output, a rarity at this price point, reduces noise interference and crosstalk, ensuring professional-grade sound quality. If your amp or mixer supports a balanced input, this is the connection of choice. The ZEN Blue V2 offers versatility and uncompromising sound quality for the discerning audiophile.
