Innuos Zenith MK2 SSD Music Server

The Innuos Zenith Audio Server is a high-end digital audio device that allows you to rip and stream CD's easily from a single location - Designed for audiophiles who want to extract all the detail and dynamics out of their music

The ZEN uses a linear power supply design with ultra-low noise regulators (40 uV), specialised audio capacitors (Nichicon MUSE) and medical-grade mains filter to ensure audio transparency and realism.

Dual-ethernet ports with isolation transformers on Ethernet ports significantly improve sound quality on streamers when compared to a direct router connection.

Vibration kills good sound quality so Innuos have added significant anti-vibration treatment to chassis and electronic components

With 2GB dedicated memory, the ZEN loads music directly to memory for playback so that it doesn’t need to engage the hard drive during playback, improving sound quality.
