innuos zen mk3 music server
The Innuos ZEN Mk3 is the ideal digital storage device for wireless loudspeakers such as the KEF LS50 Wireless II, LS60 Wireless, or a good quality hi-fi separates systems, or one box systems such as Naim Uniti and Cyrus Lyric type systems.
CDs can be ripped in FLAC or WAV formats, but will also play back AIFF, ALAC, AAC, MP3, and hi-res files.
Access to high quality streaming services such as TIDAL and Qobuz bring even greater flexibility to an already great package. Internet radio is also accessible.
Use the Innuos ZEN to stream music to wireless music products around the house, or control it directly and plug it into any USB equipped DAC or hi-fi product.
The ZEN Mk3 provides one 2.0 USB and one 3.0 USB connections, as well as dual ethernet connections - one to connect to your network, and one to connect to an external streamer which will also allow direct ethernet streaming.
The ZEN preserves sound quality by not having any analogue circuitry on board - it is a purely digital transport.
Bespoke 'innuOS' editing software makes it extremely easy to change or add metadata and artwork via any web browser on a desktop PC or even a phone or tablet. Easy to use, versatile, and above all reliable.
The ZEN Mk3 uses a double linear power supply with ultra low noise regulators and Nichicon capacitors.
The metal casework of the ZEN MkIII provides proper sound insulation for quiet operation, and much better heat dissipation than conventional plastic cased NAS drives.
Strategically placed asymmetrical feet are now a standard feature of the ZENith as a result of the development of the feature for the ZENith SE.
The full width ZEN media server uses a Quad Core Intel PCU, comes equipped with 1TB, 2TB, or 4TB of HDD digital storage, and is warranted for 2 years.
