If you're looking for a hi-res USB DAC/headphone amp then this may be the one for you.
It's compact size means that you can use it on your desk and it is 'super-affordable'!
The DAC uses the True Native Burr Brown chip design. It supports PCM and DXD to 32-bit/384kHz, DSD256 and MQA.
It has variable or fixed output, selected by a small switch. This enables the Zen to be used as a pre-amp if you have a power amplifier or for active speakers. In fixed mode, the volume knob is bypassed. This allows connection to an integrated amplifier or a pre-amp.
Another useful feature is the TrueBass button. This proprietary technology gives a switchable bass boost when you want it. It works in the analogue domain as there's no DSP in the Zen.
