DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.

Build

The Zen Blue is deceptively simple but brilliant. Say you have a nice pair of speakers, the Zen Blue has a built-in DAC that brings out the best on a nice speaker set-up. But the Bluetooth streamer is the biggest USP. It uses AptXHD and LDAC to give you the Hi-Res, and the convenience of using it with your phone wirelessly is brilliant.

Best bluetooth receiver I have heard, but never a replacement for cd players

Cd manufacturers have stopped manufacturing compact disks because people have move on to other formats like blue tooth streaming for convenience. This unit is the best BT receiver you can get, but is never a replacement for cd and cd players. It is just a compromise. CD sound is far superior.

ifi Audio ZEN Blue V2 - An excellent gear for 2 channel audio enthusiastics

I placed the order on 1st October and received it today on 4th here in Bangalore and it looks and sounds excellent. Build quality is outstanding for the money. I paired it using my OnePlus 7T smart phone and it automatically paired with Aptx Adaptive mode. My prefered mode is LDAC and I had to opt for it from the developer mode. Sound from the built-in DAC through RCA is very good. I connected it to my Audiolab 6000A integrated amplifier through optical cable and it sounds stunning. It almost sounds similar to my Denon Heos Link HS2 WiFi streamer. I also have Quad Vena and Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifiers with very good built in DACs and it sounds excellent with those as well through optical cable. Overall the ifi ZEN Blue V2 is an excellent gadget that any audio enthusiastics must have. Thank you Headphone Zone getting this for me;
