  • MAXXX changed the title to FS: iFi ZEN DAC/preamp/headphone amp

I have one of these on my desk and quite like it.

 

FWIW, this thing can run either on USB power or external (there's a barrel jack on the rear for 5v; PSU not included in box). I bought iFi's iPower upgrade expecting it to do wonderful things (blacker background, greater dynamics, bass control) and it made no audible difference whatsoever vs. USB power. Interesting finding, as I've previously experienced quite dramatic differences with PSU upgrades on headphone amps. 

 

YMMV of course; I was not driving hungry headphones.
