Superb bluetooth transport and decent dac

My quest to add a good bluetooth dac to my hifi audio chain was fulfilled by the Zen Blue Dac. In my stereo setup I use the audioengine d2 (wireless 24bit dac) for streaming music from my computer into a chifi preamp buffer(GE 5654 tubes) which then feeds into my Denon amp(source direct mode). I wanted to connect to this chain via bluetooth through phone(s) but my audioengine required a wired connection at one end. The Zen Blue enabled me to connect to this chain via bluetooth and it did well. The bluetooth connection never drops and is strong. It supported aptX HD out of the box and that gave me a lot better sound. It seems LDAC would be supported via a update. Ok so what about the sound quality of the DAC itself : It is good not the best I would say but it has pretty clean and solid output. I am yet to try the balanced out given in this DAC. Will update the review as I use it more and compare with other DAC's that I have. Thanks to headphonezone for a very fast delivery they surprised me as i did a preorder(3-4 weeks for delivery it said) and then it shipped out next day (...not updated webpage probably) and got delivered in another day.

We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. We look forward to serving you again.
