This ZEN DAC V2 is the same award-winning hi-res USB DAC/headphone amp as before but with added oomph! We’ve upgraded its digital engine from an 8 core XMOS chip to a 16 core chip. It’s ultra-capable while still being super-affordable. Compact enough to use as a USB DAC/amp on your work desk and stylish enough to use at home with your favorite active speakers or amp, it delivers a level of specification and performance that punches above its super-affordable price tag. The ZEN DAC V2 supports PCM and DXD to 32-bit/384kHz, DSD256, and MQA. DSD remains ‘bit-perfect thanks to the True Native Burr-Brown chip design.


Thanks to the 16 core tech, the ZEN DAC V2 is now an MQA Decoder rather than a Renderer. This enables you to playback MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. The LED glows green or blue to indicate that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and denotes provenance to ensure that the sound is identical to that of the source material. It glows blue to indicate it is playing an MQA Studio file, which has either been approved in the studio by the artist/producer or has been verified by the copyright owner. MQA rendering technology (used in the original ZEN DAC among other iFi products) connects to an MQA Core signal (such as TIDAL) and completes the final unfold of an MQA file. This product will include ‘stream lock’ but is not able to decode an MQA stream or authenticate it.


A new and improved low jitter, crystal clock means >20dB better performance. The super-low noise performance means the ZEN DAC V2 will remain quiet even in noisy situations such as yachts or RVs. The balanced design for the analog stage – rare and not found at this price point – makes it pretty special and delivers the best sound quality, normally found in higher-priced models. The ZEN DAC V2 sports Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced outputs at both the front and back. On the front, there’s also the popular 6.3mm headphone socket.


Switch effortlessly between ‘variable’ and ‘fixed’. Set to ‘Variable,’ use the ZEN DAC V2 as a pre-amp to feed a power amp or active speakers. On ‘Fixed’ to bypass the volume control. Connect to an external pre-amp or integrated amp.


Our headphone amp has PowerMatch – switchable gain to perfectly match your headphones. For IEMs, normally high-sensitivity, leave PowerMatch at its lower setting for hiss-free listening. On/over-ear headphones with relatively low impedance require more power – press PowerMatch to increase the level of drive.


The ZEN DAC V2 boasts TrueBass. This proprietary tech is a switchable ‘bass boost’ operating in the analog domain. There’s no DSP with iFi gear. TrueBass enhances the bass but does not muddy the mid-range. Perfect for use with IEMs or open-back headphones which often lack bass. The ZEN DAC V2 is the ultimate chilling machine. Tune in and ZEN out.

Zen Dac v2

¿Qué puedo decir de este producto que no se haya dicho ya? Simplemente me hago eco de las buenas críticas. Es un muy buen producto, con sus pros y contras. Simplemente disfrutable, una de las mejores compras por su relación calidad - precio. Los uso con unos Meze 99 Classics.

Great value for over-ear headphones

This DAC/AMP combo is a great choice for entry-level HiFi over-ear headphones, especially if you plan to use 4.4mm balanced output. It has a great build quality, stable Windows drivers and PS4 and PS5 compatibility (you need to update the firmware for the latter).

It can be used as just a DAC, and again, to get the best sound out of it, you should use the balanced output instead of RCA.

It's has an MQA support that works flawlessly on Tidal, if that's important to you.

I wouldn't recommend ZenDAC v2 for IEMs, due to high noise floor and audible channel imbalance (in my estimate it's in the 0-10% volume range, 6 to 7 o
'clock on the volume knob).
