iFi Audio Zen ONE Signature

iFi Audio ZEN One Signature takes the DAC stage from the ZEN DAC V2, adds S/PDIF inputs (optical and coaxial) alongside the USB port, stirs in Bluetooth technology from the ZEN Blue V2 and seasons the pot with Signature-grade circuit enhancements to create a delicious audio brew.

The ZEN One Signature is a pure DAC (no built-in headphone amp and volume control) that serves as a home audio hub for all your digital devices, from smartphones and tablets to PCs and Macs, disc players and audio servers to TVs and games consoles.

The Signature series always includes extra special additions: Low-jitter femto clock crystal provides less than 20dB performance, 16 Core 2000MIPS XMOS low-latency microcontroller with 4x more processing power. C0G capacitors offer high-linearity, excellent temperature/frequency characteristics. MELF resistors with high-precision and low-noise. Taiyo Yuden and Murata inductors with low-impedance power supply rails, and high-gain antenna for extended range.

The ultimate DAC for all your home audio sources.

HOME HUB DAC
The ZEN One Signature is the first ZEN DAC to support all hi-res: DSD256, PCM384, MQA384kHz, Bluetooth 96KHz. 96kHz Hi-Res Bluetooth with LDAC, HWA/LHDC, aptX Adaptive/HD/LL, AAC. USB audio using 16 Core 2000MIPS XMOS low latency microcontroller (MQA decoder). Fully balanced 4.4mm output and purity of design, no headphone amp, no volume control.

HD BLUETOOTH
The next-generation HD Bluetooth technology in the ZEN One Signature ensures the best sound from every source. Extensive high-definition codec support – aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, LDAC and HWA/LHDC. High-gain antenna delivers extended Bluetooth range.

DISCERNING DIGITAL
The ZEN One Signature offers the following to transform home music enjoyment: True Native hi-res DAC – supports 32-bit/384kHz PCM and fully native DSD, Powerful 16-core XMOS processor – performs full MQA decoding (to 384kHz). Upgraded GMT femto-precision clock and customised digital filter eradicate jitter and other forms of digital distortion. Coaxial S/PDIF digital outputs support 24-bit/192kHz PCM.

AWESOME ANALOGUE
Balanced circuitry is what the ZEN series is famed for. The ZEN One Signature continues the tradition with Balanced circuit design with Signature-grade circuit components that delivers ultra-low distortion and exceptional sonic purity. Balanced 4.4mm and RCA single-ended analogue outputs connect to an integrated amp, preamp, headphone amp or active speakers.
