ThisZEN DAC Signature V2is the upgraded version of our original ZEN DAC Signature – a pure DAC that benefits from true-differential balanced circuit design. It has upgraded circuit components and short, direct signal paths for optimal signal purity.
It delivers bit-perfect PCM (up to 32-bit/384kHz), native DSD (up to DSD256) and DXD.
The use of the 16-core XMOS chip, rather than the original 8-core, means it is now a full MQA decoder rather than a renderer.
It offers a pair of RCA sockets for single-ended connection to an amp, plus a Pentaconn 4.4mm output.
The full benefit of theZEN DAC Signature V2’s balanced circuit design comes to the fore when it is connected to an amp or active speakers equipped with a balanced input. This can either be a 4.4mm Pentaconn input or stereo XLR inputs via a 4.4mm-to-XLR cable.
It can switch between ‘variable’ and ‘fixed’ outputs.
ZEN CAN SIGNATURE HFM
The ZEN CAN Signature HFMhas a specialised, finely tuned EQ curve. Its customActivEQsetting combines active and passive components to create a specific EQ curve to suitHIFIMANplanar headphones. ActivHQcan be switched off to make the most of all headphones and in-ear monitors.
TheZEN CAN Signature HFMalso employsXSpace.This is an analogue processing mode which compensates for the ‘in-head localisation’ effect that can occur when listening to tracks mixed using a pair of speakers on headphones.
It featuresPowerMatch– four gain in six dB steps – 0dB, 6dB, 12dB and 18db.
The ZEN CAN Signature HFMboasts symmetrical, dual-mono balanced circuitry. It delivers 1600mW (7.2V) into 32 ohms from the single-ended output, with 15V+ available to loads of 600 ohms or more through the balanced output.
It houses stereo RCA and 3.5mm single-ended inputs, plus a balanced 4.4mm Pentaconn input. It has a 6.3mm output for headphones that have a standard single-ended connector and a 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced output for headphones offering a balanced connection.
4.4MM TO 4.4MM CABLE
TheiFi 4.4mm to 4.4mm cableemploys heavy OFHC continuous cast copper and silver matrix conductors with a total thickness of 14AWG for the best signal transfer.
It’s a perfect addition to ourZEN Signature Set HFMas this audiophile-grade cable will give you maximum quality balanced signal transfer and minimum interference.
The cable construction is a custom helix design, minimised both in capacitance and inductance. It has intrinsic shielding provided by minZ™ helix construction. This protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise and provides the cleanest transfer medium possible.
To insulate the cable even further, we used an RoHS compliant super-soft (60P) HD polymer with 1500V AC spark resistance and excellent dielectric properties.
