Studio. Or Home.

Nothing gets in the way with the ZEN One Studio. It is a pure-bred D/A with no headphone amp and no volume control, meaning all the design effort went into making it the best multiple inputs D/A possible for the money and the perfect audio hub for all your digital devices.

Use it in the studio and you can be sure that what you’ll hear coming out of your DAW, digital recorder or playback device is exactly what you recorded.

Use it at home and stream at 96kHz via HD Bluetooth from your DAP, which is also the perfect solution for listening to musicians’ rough mixes from their smart phones in the studio.

Stacked. With Tech.

The ZEN One Studio uses a Burr Brown True Native® D/A chipset for bit-perfect conversion, leaving the file format unchanged for accurate and reliable results.

Its built-in Global Master Timing® clock has an intelligent memory buffer which eradicates source jitter to prevent it being transmitted to the D/A output.

The powerful 16-core XMOS processor handles the incoming digital data, making the ZEN One Studio able to provide state-of-the-art audio support for 32-bit/384kHz PCM, DSD256, and full MQA decoding.

Smooth. And Balanced.

The ZEN One Studio benefits from balanced circuitry for ultra-low distortion and exceptional levels of audio precision.

Connect via XLR, TRS or 4.4mm balanced outputs to a pair of active speakers, or a dedicated headphone amplifier, and benefit from its ultra-quiet performance for an accurate representation of the recording that you can rely on.

And. Fun.

In addition to its traditional inputs, the ZEN One Studio integrates a Bluetooth playback facility, making it perfect for use as a leisure product as well as a music production tool.

HD Bluetooth, with support for aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, aptXLL, LDAC and LHDC/HWA and others, and a high-gain antenna provide the very best reproduction from a Bluetooth source.
