Innuos Zen MK3


The Innuos ZEN Mk3 is the “Sweetspot” in the Innuos line up. The ZEN Mk3 provides another leap in sound quality compared to the ZENmini with its integrated dual-linear PSU, isolated dual-ethernet ports and asymmetrical anti-vibration feet. The ZEN Mk3 represents new value for money in digital audio performance.

It’s a one box solution that allows you to rip and store your entire CD collection as well as any stored music files. As a CD player (need a DAC) it sounds as good as any of the stand alone CD players we have ever had in our shop. Feed it Qobuz or Tidal and you will have your mind blown. If you have been struggling with streaming from a MAC Book, PC, Sonos or Blusound, prepared to be amazed. The Innuos is a game changer. The user interface is fantastic, whether you use Roon (subscription) or The Innuos Sense software (free), both work wonderfully well!.

For us at Choice Audio, the Innuos line are the most significant products we have brought into the shop in the last 15 years. 98% of the time we send a demo unit out for home audition, the customer orders an Innuos unit. We have never ever had a product satisfy that high of percentage of customers before.

Feel free to give us a call to order a unit for general information. 651-217-2083

“All in all the Innuos ZEN MkII makes a very good case for using a dedicated audio server rather than a NAS drive and network switch, it sounds considerably better for one, making even a high end NAS seem distinctly crude by comparison. It also gives excellent results with both USB and Ethernet connections thanks to the efforts that the company has put into creating a quiet power supply and well isolated outputs.”
