Dual-Linear Power Supply

The ZEN ensures a cleaner digital signal by reducing power noise. Through a dual-linear power supply, designed by Dr. Sean Jacobs, with ultra-low noise regulator design, Nichicon MUSE Capacitors and medical-grade mains filter, your music opens up and reveals new levels of realism.

Custom Motherboard

Our own custom-made Innuos motherboard is completely reworked for optimised audio performance. Sources of EMI have been removed and internal clocks optimised, resulting in a “blacker” music background and enhanced realism.

Ultra-low Noise Streamer Output

Dual-ethernet ports with isolation transformers provide an ultra-low noise network connection for your streamer, removing noise from the path and improving sound quality on all network audio.

Anti-vibration Treatment

New asymmetrical isolation feet derived from our award-winning ZENith SE plus added chassis treatment help to combat harmful vibration that affect a clean audio signal.

In-Memory Playback

Now with twice the memory of the Zen Mk2, the new Zen MK3 has 8GB RAM with 4GB dedicated memory. Music is loaded directly to memory for playback so that it doesn’t engage the hard drive, improving sound quality.

    Delighted yet again with the exemplary guidance & communications from Richard.
    Process was seamless as Zen Mk 3 was made to order & was delivered direct to my home from Innuos in Lisbon, then integrated & playing in my home system , all within about 4 days from order.
    Build quality faultless , operation straightforward & sound quality stunning . Feeding the 4 terrabytes HD should keep me happy & busy for quite a few months.

      David, so glad to hear that you are happy! Enjoy the Zen and please keep in touch!

    It was a pleasure to visit Richard and collect my new Innuos Zen. I was expecting to look for parking on a high street, so was pleasantly surprised to find Audiologica is based in Richard’s home. No parking problems, which made for a stress free visit. Richard was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the audio equipment he sells. Very happy with the Zen and very happy with Audiologica, highly recommended.

    It’s only when things go wrong , we can identify those who really care about their customers . Had a small issue with the Zen powering up but Richard and Innuos were very supportive and arranged for the collection and replacement of another unit – all extremely quickly and professionally , with no fuss whatsoever .
    I have now started importing my music and playing via my chosen music streaming service . The Zen has improved my system , opening up the music to new high . Needless to say , very happy with my Innous Zen and would highly recommend it . A special thanks to Richard at Audiologica for his attention to detail sorting everything from initial order to unit arriving .
