Connect the Zen+ XL to your Hi-Fi and enjoy high-resolution music up to 32bit/384KHz and DSD using a compatible USB DAC. Discover new music with Internet Radio, Spotify, Qobuz and many other music services.

The Zen+ XL can be easily expanded using external USB hard drives or multiple NAS servers so you'll never run out of space.

Stream your movies to SmartTVs and media streamers around the house and play your tunes to music streamers and wireless speakers.

Music and Movies in full quality, at your fingertips

The Zen+ XL is our ultimate media server, now with even more internal storage so you can have your entire collection in a single box. Store 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD and CDs preserving all the quality of the original disc. Connect to your AV Amplifier or Hi-Fi and use your smartphone/tablet to play your music (including high-resolution) with amazing clarity. Pair with one or more Dune Media Players and enjoy your movies with a great looking movie wall on your TV or your tablet, making it easy to use by all the family. WIth the Zen+ XL, there are no compromises - your music and movies in one place, with a great looking interface for everyone to use, with the best quality.


All your discs, with the best Quality

Just insert a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray (including 3D) and let the Zen+ XL do its magic. The Zen+ XL stores movies as a complete disc backup or as MKV and your music in lossless FLAC or Apple Lossless. Both music and movies come complete with full metadata. Once the disc is stored, it will be ejected automatically and the Zen+ is ready for more.

A proper movie library

The Zen+ XL uses our partner software My Movies, providing a complete movie library management tool. My Movies has an extensive, well curated movie metadata service which the Zen+ taps into to create a great looking movie wall. No more browsing folders and having to choose files to play. The Zen+ XL presents your movies as they should: cover, fan art, synopsis, actors, year, etc. If you have a large movie library, your movies can be categorised by genre, decade, alphabetically or even using custom categories defined by yourself. This makes movies so much easier to browse and play. So much, in fact, that the whole family will want to use it!

Integrated Library Management

With the Zen+ XL, you can correct or change both your music and your movie metadata wihtout requiring 3rd party tools. Using the Dashboard on the Zen+ XL, you can edit or add album information to your stored CDs and use the My Movies Collection Management application to maintain your top notch movie library well organised.

Audiophile-grade music Player

Complementing its movie credentials, the Zen+ XL is quite simply an extraordinary music server. Connect the Zen+ XL to your Hi-Fi with a compatible USB DAC and the Zen+ XL will play all music: your stored CDs, downloaded high-resolution music up to 32bit/384KHz and DSD256, Internet Radio and services such as Spotify, Qobuz or Deezer. All of these with a bit-perfect output so they sound as good as they should. And all controlled from the convenience of your tablet or smartphone so you can have a rich user interface to enjoy your music.

Streaming all around the house

The Zen+ XL isn’t restricted to playing only to your living room. You can (and should!) use it for a whole home audio and video system. You can stream your movies directly to compatible SmartTVs or have media streamers around the house so you can watch your movies anywhere. If you have other Hi-Fi systems with a music streamer, such as a Naim Uniti or Linn DS, you can also stream music from the Zen+ XL, using your smartphone or tablet as a remote control. The Zen+ XL is also pre-configured to work with wireless multi-room systems such as Sonos and Squeezebox so your music is always available at the touch of a button.

As much Music and Movies as you want

With a massive 6Tb hard drive, the Zen+ XL is capable of storing up to 15000 CDs, 800 DVDs or 150 Blu-Ray discs in full quality. If that's not enough, you can easily expand storage using external USB drives or NAS devices. Your movie library will always be seen as a single library.

Compatible with NIMBIE USB AutoLOADER

If the prospect of spending endless hours to store your music and movie collection seems daunting then have no fear. The Zen+ XL is fully integrated with the Acronova Nimbie USB Autoloader, so you can automatically load up to 100 discs on the Nimbie and let it read each to the Spinner automatically.

Compatible with Control4

The Zen+ XL is prepared for integration with Control4 Home Automation systems so that you can enjoy the rich movie metadata provided by My Movies merged right into the Control4 controller. Couple with Dune Media Streamers and you can browse and play your movies easily from your controller.

Always On, Always There

The Zen+ XL has been designed to run 24/7 using enterprise-grade components so your music and movies are available at any time of the day or night. It’s designed with a low ripple power supply, enterprise grade hard drive and very power-efficient components, allowing an idle power consumption of only 10W.

Silent operation

With no cooling fans and an ultra-quiet enterprise grade hard drive, the Zen+ XL is silent. You can enjoy your music and movies at very low volume levels without interruption or distraction. So there’s no need to hide it away in a cupboard either.

Unparalleled Service

The Zen+ XL comes with our “love it or return it” guarantee – if not completely satisfied, you can return the Zen for a full refund (terms and conditions apply). Your new Zen+ XL is also protected by our dedicated support team who will help you resolve any issues you may have.
