We have been impressed with the growth and advancements that InnuOS continually brings to market. Their new Sense App sounds excellent, they discard stock computer boards and components, and optimize their own solutions, all to great effect.
The sweet spot for performance/budget, the ZENith competes with many streamers at twice the price. Paired with the CAD 1543 MKII DAC, you have reference level performance at attainable price points!
The original entry level before the Pulse, we still recommend the ZENmini to everyone because of the excellent cd ripping capability. The new ’S’ upgrade option introduces a SSD and extra 4GB of RAM for silent, lightning quick operation.
