iFi Zen DAC Signature V2
The iFi Zen DAC Signature V2 is the ultimate upgrade for audiophiles who demand the very best in sound quality. This high-end digital audio converter has been designed to deliver an even purer performance than its predecessor, the original Zen DAC Signature. With its 16 core XMOS chip and fully-symmetrical, true differential balanced dual-mono signal stage, this DAC is more powerful and precise than ever. The Zen DAC Signature V2 is equipped with the finest components available, such as C0G capacitors from TDK and ELNA Slimic II capacitors, ensuring that your music is heard in its purest form without any distortion or coloration.
One of the standout features of the Zen DAC Signature V2 is its True Native DAC architecture. This innovative design allows the DAC to deliver Bit-Perfect audio up to 32-bit/384kHz and native DSD up to DSD256, ensuring that you hear your music exactly as the artist intended. The Zen DAC Signature V2 is also a full MQA decoder, enabling you to play back MQA audio files and streams that deliver the sound of the original master recording. The LED on the unit will glow green or blue to indicate that it is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, providing you with peace of mind that you're hearing your music in its purest form.
The Zen DAC Signature V2 is incredibly easy to set up and use. It features an asynchronous USB Type B input for accurate, jitter-free data transfer from your source device, and a pair of RCA sockets for a single-ended connection to an amplifier. The balanced 4.4mm output allows for balanced signal transfer between compact products, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of setups. The outputs of the Zen DAC Signature V2 can also be switched between variable and fixed, allowing you to use it as a preamp or to bypass the volume control for use with downstream equipment that has its own volume control.
In conclusion, the iFi Zen DAC Signature V2 is a must-have for audiophiles who demand the very best in sound quality. With its advanced technology, outstanding components, and versatile design, this digital audio converter is an exceptional choice for anyone looking to elevate their listening experience. Whether you're using it with headphones, speakers, or a combination of both, the Zen DAC Signature V2 will bring your music to life in a way that you've never experienced before.
