  • iFi Audio ZEN One Signature

    by iFi Audio
    The ZEN One Signature is a pure DAC (i.e. there's no headphone amp or volume control) that combines the DAC stage from the ZEN DAC 2, the Bluetooth Technology from the ZEN Blue V2 and adds S/PDIF I/O plus Signature grade circuitry. It's the first ZEN DAC to support all hi-res: DSD256, PCM384, MQA384kHz plus Bluetooth 96KHz (supporting LDAC, HWA/LHDC, aptX Adaptive/HD/LL, AAC). It uses a True Native hi-res DAC, a 16-core XMOS processor which performs full MQA decoding (to 384kHz) and a GMT femto-precision clock to reduce jitter and distortion. There's also a Balanced circuit design and 4mm Balanced and RCA single-ended analogue outputs for connection to an integrated amp, preamp, headphone amp or active speakers.
