“I purchased the iFi ZEN DAC, primarily to improve the sound of the new Eris 3 pc monitor speakers. This it did with resulting noticeable improvement in most every aspect of the sound performance in the small pc monitor speakers. Now, comes the kicker. After hooking up my YBA integrated amp (audiophile quality) via some good quality RCA cables to the iFi ZEN DAC with LSA bookshelf speakers, the sound is in fact overall better than using the YBA integrated amp and YBA cd player ( both $1500 stereo components ).
“Even at low volume levels, details to recordings are being revealed like never before. In fact the iFi ZEN DAC has given my reference stereo system with the YBA separates and the LSA bookshelf speakers a new lease of life.”
“So much so it will put a smile on the face of even the most picky audio enthusiast.”
