iFi Audio Zen Blue Bluetooth Streamer

High-resolution wireless streamer.

This ultra-affordable hi-res Bluetooth® streamer enables you to chillax in style. Just add smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac.

Chill. Relax. Enjoy.

You only achieve true ZEN when totally chilled. We’ve given you peace of mind (and pocket) with the ZEN Blue. Whether you’re a Spotify, Amazon or Apple Music lover or totally prefer Tidal, the ZEN Blue will deliver fabulously flawless music to suit your mood via breathtaking hi-res Bluetooth®.

Hi-res to the nth degree.

All current and future Bluetooth® audio formats are supported. This includes Qualcomm’s aptX and aptX HD, LDAC and HWA, hi-res Bluetooth® codecs created by Sony and Huawei respectively, AAC, Apple’s favoured format and SBC, the standard Bluetooth® codec.

Phew! This means every possible source device is covered, at the highest resolution Bluetooth® specification.

Not all Bluetooth is created equal.

Have utter confidence in the sound quality of the ZEN Blue. It uses Bluetooth5.0®, the very latest version, and the newest Qualcomm 5100 chip to process all incoming Bluetooth® data.

There ESS Sabre DAC chip is there to ensure an extremely smooth digital to analogue conversion. Banish standard ‘Bluetooth Blues’ with the iFi hi-res implementation.

Chill with the best of both worlds.

Analogue – connect via RCA to amps or active speakers or via the 4.4mm output to amps/speakers with a balanced input.

Digital – use the optical and coaxial connections to connect to anything with a built-in DAC and corresponding digital input; your TV, an AV amp or an external DAC in your hi-fi set-up.

Balanced design is special indeed.

The analogue output stage is balanced, not normaaly seen in DACs at this price point. Balanced means less noise interference/crosstalk. This equals more ZEN in our book.

It has RCA and balanced outputs at HiFi standard level; 2V SE and 4V BAL and thus is compatible with both HiFi and Pro systems. All underpinned by high-quality circuit components such as C0G capacitors from TDK. All fed by a precision low-noise power supply from Texas Instruments to make this a rare entry-priced beastie.

Go and grab yourself one today. And ZEN out…

Zen Blue

A great little product that plugs straight into your amp’s analogue inputs with the ability to go optical if you have that. Solid connection and I’ve experienced no cut out at all. I currently only have the ability to stream AAC and it’s limitations do show. You can update the device through android and it now supports LDAC. I’ll probably upgrade my DAC in the future and use this solely as a Bluetooth receiver. Still I’m very happy with this device which adds another element to my otherwise solely analogue system. I would Highly recommend this for a relatively cheap option that gets the job done. Of course if streaming is a major part of your musical needs then you may want to look at saving and going for a Cyrus One or something similar.
