The ZEN MkIII Music Server Series perfectly embodies our core principles to bring Digital Music to new heights. It is composed by three models, powered by innuOS, with increasing audiophile refinement: ZENmini, ZEN and ZENith MkIII Music Servers.
Powered by innuOS
InnuOS allows complete Music Library management using a tablet or smartphone. Ripping CDs, importing music, editing album data (including covers) and backing up your music library can all be done easily without the need for a PC/Mac computer. innuOS also contains many intelligent features to help organise your Music Library such as our rule-based music import engine or the Assisted CD Ripping mode.
The ZEN MkIII Series models were designed to optimise music playback using three key areas: minimising power noise, reducing vibration and optimising firmware. Each of these areas is increasingly built up throughout the range, with the Mini having basic elements such as a floating optical drive platform to reduce vibration, the ZEN with its Linear PSU and extensive anti-vibration chassis treatment and the ZENith with its Triple-Linear PSU and SSD storage.
Remember your CDs and all the music lying on your computer that you haven’t heard for ages? Now there’s a simple way to store, manage and play all of it: the ZENmini.
Surprisingly Good Sound
The Mini may be our entry-level Music Server but there’s nothing entry-level about its performance. With premium components extensively configured to optimise sound quality, you’ll notice the difference.
With a processor much faster than a typical NAS, the ZENmini provides a slick interface when browsing and searching your library as well as faster library indexing.
Quiet and Stylish
With its CNC-machined aluminium fascia and metal chassis, the Mini emanates style and build quality. And because it’s fanless, there‘s no annoying fan noise so you can just enjoy the music.
