Ifi Zen Stream

Nice little box. Started using it just a week back and presently using for HDD playback of FLAC and WAV files and using as Spotify connect.
Nice clean sound. Still to explore other options.

Hey Aarvind,
We thank you for this lovely review & we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.

Super Streamer

This is my first dedicated streamer. I have it connected to the Chord Hugo 2 and it really makes it sing! A huge jump in sound quality from the usb out of my laptop- even better than the sp1000 connected by optical to the hugo 2. If you don't need a mobile unit- i don't think this streamer can be beat at this cost.

When it works, it works well. But software is buggy. When using spotify, airplay on connect zen stream shows its streaming (right LED is on) but there is no line out If you disconnect and reconnect it works. Or you need to do factory rest to go to old firmware. Also there is no proposed date for chromecast support which is shame.

Excellent streamer

Thanks headphone zone for bringing this product to Indian market. As always excellent service by headphonezone. I received the product the 2nd day.
I primarily use laptop or mobile phone to connect to dac and listen music. I've been reading a lot about streamers and was interested to try it myself. Anyhow i was not expecting this to improve sound drastically. But i was wrong, the moment I connected my dac to Zen Steam and listened to my favorite tracks, I was surprised by what i heard. There is an audible improvement compared to laptop or phone.
Soundstage becomes well define and so is imaging. The background was dead silent (black background) and this improved the details. Details were more evident and clear. Changes are easy audible. I used WiFi and didn't face any dropouts. But make sure to use 5Ghz band. So Zen Stream is actually doing what it claims. I am happy with the purchase.
Cons: iFi app is in initial stage of development and not too stable. Setup was a bit rough as I had to use the web link to set it up as the app was not allowing me to add stream to home network. However once connected I found no issues with Tidal/Spotify connect.

Hey Karthik,
Thank you for the detailed review! Happy to know you are loving the product.
