The Maturity of the Music Streamer Server. The Zen Mk3

Now at True Audiophile


We listened to all server streamers we could. They were either way too much money for what they delivered or too complex. Innuos is taking over the world market because they are none of those issues. Brilliantly simple to use and modestly priced. Built from the ground up including their OS. -- True Audiophile mini review

Before we launch into the rave reviews, here are the fundamental differences of the Zen:

● Full-width design.

● Dual Linear Power Supply with ultra-low noise regulators and Nichicon capacitors.

● Medical-grade mains filter.

● EMI-treated custom motherboard.

● Ethernet isolation transformers.

● Ultra-low noise USB audio output.

● Anti-vibration treatment on chassis and components.

● Asymmetrical resonance-tuned isolation feet.

● 8GB RAM with 4GB in-memory playback.

  •  very good case for using a dedicated audio server 
    rather than a NAS drive 

    All in all the Innuos ZEN MkII makes a very good case for using a dedicated audio server rather than a NAS drive and network switch, it sounds considerably better for one, making even a high end NAS seem distinctly crude by comparison. It also gives excellent results with both USB and Ethernet connections thanks to the efforts that the company has put into creating a quiet power supply and well isolated outputs.

  • LowBeats awarded the ZEN 4,8 out of 5 points - Outstanding

    LowBeats, a reference German Hi-Fi blog tested the ZENmini and the ZEN MkII. They concluded that both were very innovative, incredibly fast, easy to use with a convincing sound quality and a great price/performance ratio. They found the additional price difference between the ZENmini and ZEN worth it and less expensive than usual in HiFi systems, given the sound improvement provided by the ZEN.

  • Einsnull considered the ZEN to be Enlightened

    Einsnull concluded the ZEN clearly had the strength to finally establish this device category as a true HiFi System. The magazine considered it to be very user-friendly and with high audiophile standards - a Server that has earned the word "Music" in its name!

  • HiFi IFAS awarded the ZEN 6 out of 6 points

    According to HIFI-IFAs - a well-respected German Hi-Fi blog, our ZEN is a step towards true dimensionality with unbelievable dynamics which let you truly experience music, besides being gorgeous and self-explanatory. They conclude that the ZEN is a highly recommendable device with high-end sound quality and great value for money.


    If that's how much they loved the MkII just imagine how much you will love the MkIII.
