Following the release of ZEN DAC V2, iFi Audio has unveiled yet another upgrade to their affordable ZEN hi-fi line with the ZEN Blue V2.
The V2 release of the ZEN Blue Bluetooth receiver now has an upgraded antenna for up to 70-80% better Bluetooth range and an upgraded low-jitter crystal clock that provides lower phase (timing) noise for higher-resolution sound.
On top of that, iFi has also upgraded the firmware so that the ZEN Blue has even better sound from its hi-res LDAC connection. The original ZEN Blue can be updated with the new firmware as well.
With the original ZEN Blue, iFi already had the best sounding Bluetooth receiver for the money, so it’s nice to see they’re not resting on their laurels.
ZEN Blue V2 will be available in June; for more info, check out https://ifi-audio.com/products/zen-blue-v2/
