A gateway server with all the full benefits of innuOS, now with improved connectivity and an upgraded path for even greater flexibility. Ideal for simple integration into multi-room systems or for those making the first step to a dedicated audio server.
Looking for a tidy solution for all your CDs and the files laying around on the computer? Need an easy way to stream and listen to all your favourite music? Now there’s a simple way to store, manage and play all of it: the ZENmini.
ZENmini Mk3 & LPSU gets high marks from Darko Audio! The combination receives praise for its performance and value, 'Whether used as a transport or via its analog output, the double-stack offers gratifying sound with a particularly strong sense of spaciousness – I can’t think of anything in this price class which can touch it in that regard.' 'Combined with the features and functionality on offer, we end up with a rather compelling device which represents "trickle down" technology at its very finest'
With its compact footprint, low-power efficiency, quiet operation and range of connectivity, the ZENmini is a convenient and discreet music server for all your Digital Audio needs – from CD ripping and purchased downloads to streaming services and internet radio.
The ZENmini offers more than just casual usage. Floating optical and storage drives paired with a custom motherboard and premium components offer far greater musical performance than conventional computers and NAS drives.
