Effortlessly stream high quality Bluetooth sound to your music system, with the iFi Audio ZEN Blue V2.

Award-winner made better
Winner of multiple awards, including the prestigious What Hi-Fi 2020, ‘5-star’ review, the iFi Audio ZEN Blue was hard to beat. Until now. The ZEN Blue V2 upgrades the Bluetooth antenna, giving an improved range of up to 80%. This means that the receiver now works better in larger rooms and is more reliable in large, open-plan spaces.

Top quality, Bluetooth sound from your smartphone, PC, laptop or Mac to your Hi-Fi
The ZEN Blue V2 continues to offer a simple yet high quality way of wirelessly transmitting the sound from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac to your Hi-Fi or speaker. Whether you use Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal or any other music app, the ZEN Blue V2 sets the sound free from your smartphone’s speaker and truly opens up the sound’s potential.

Hi-Res sound for crystal-clear clarity
Bluetooth isn’t new, but transmitting at such high quality is rare. The ZEN Blue V2 supports the highest quality Bluetooth formats, including HWA (Hi-Res Wireless Audio) by LHDC, Qualcomm’s aptX, aptX HD, LDAC and HWA. Apple’s AAC is also supported. If you haven’t experienced Bluetooth audio for some time, you might be surprised as to just how much the sound quality has improved over the past few years.

Hi-Fi quality electronics inside
Making the most of HD Bluetooth, the internal electronics offer the highest quality sound – just as you’d find in quality Hi-Fi. The ESS Sabre DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) is the same as in many high-end AV receivers and other digital products. The discrete circuit layout uses top quality audio components, such as OV series op amps, Texas Instruments power supply and TDK (Class 1 ceramic) capacitors.

Ultra-low distortion
The result of using such high quality components on a carefully implemented board is stunning sound quality with ultra-low levels of background noise for crystal-clear detail and clarity. Distortion is kept to the lowest levels, making your music sound its most natural and lifelike.

Output the sound your way
When it comes to connecting the ZEN Blue V2 to your Hi-Fi, AV or speaker system, you really can take your pick. Choose between optical and coaxial connections for hooking up to your digital amp or AV receiver. Alternatively, RCA phono outputs make the perfect connection to your Hi-Fi amp or mini system. For the highest quality sound, there’s even a balanced output.

Balanced output option
Making this top quality Bluetooth DAC even better, the 4.4mm balanced output is yet another standout feature at this price. More usually found in studio equipment, the balanced connection gives vanishingly low levels of noise interference and crosstalk, for professional quality sound. If your amp or mixer is equipped with a balanced input, this is the connection to use.

Get the very best Bluetooth connection, with the iFi Audio ZEN Blue V2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer I bought this so I could stream Tidal at Hi-Fi quality through my ageing but still gorgeous sounding Cambridge Audio Azur 540A V2. My Oppo mobile outputs Bluetooth at LADAC quality so I plumbed it in and started away with "Milestones" by Miles Davis. Mind blown! I had been streaming through the Oppo's mini headphone jack before and this was different gravy, separation, staging, timbre, everything better. Only one drawback - my TDL's have finally hit their limit and I've had to pull the trigger on a pair of Dali Oberon 5s to do justice to the DAC in the Zen. At £159 this "gizmo" (as my funny valentine has christened it) is money incredibly well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, great sound I had been looking for something like this for a while and been put off by high prices. This does a great job, is easy to use, sound great, and actually looks quite nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device This is a great device which has transformed my streaming experience. I have an older but good quality HI FI system and wanted to make the most of it. I was amazed at the quality of the sound produced through the Zen Blue with great separation and performance across the range of music I like.
