Remember your CDs and all the music lying on your computer that you haven’t heard for ages? Now there’s a simple way to store, manage and play all of it: the ZENmini.

Surprisingly Good Sound

The Mini may be our entry-level Music Server but there’s nothing entry-level about its performance. With premium components extensively configured to optimise sound quality, you’ll notice the difference.

Fast Performer

With a processor much faster than a typical NAS, the ZENmini provides a slick interface when browsing and searching your library as well as faster library indexing.

Quiet and Stylish

With its CNC-machined aluminium fascia and metal chassis, the Mini emanates style and build quality. And because it’s fanless, there‘s no annoying fan noise so you can just enjoy the music.

 
  • Review & Awards

  • LowBeats awarded the ZENmini 4,8 out of 5 points - Outstanding

    Low Beats, a reference German Hi-Fi blog tested the ZENmini and the ZEN MkII. They concluded that both were very innovative, incredibly fast, easy to use with a convincing sound quality and a great price/performance ratio. They found the additional price difference between the ZENmini and ZEN worth it and less expensive than usual in HiFi systems, given the sound improvement provided by the ZEN.

  • HiFi IFAS awarded the ZENmini 6 out of 6 points
    and considered it a IFA highlight

    HiFi IFAS - a well-respected German Hi-Fi blog, tested the ZENmini with different songs and found the sound to be cleaner, the timing better and a very audible deeper sound stage when compared to their QNAP NAS.
