iFi ZenDAC Air

Improve the quality of your everyday audio with the ZEN Air DAC.

DAC stands for Digital to Analogue converter. In a nutshell, a DAC converts the digital info in your source device – your computer, games console, tablet or smartphone – to music that we can hear through speakers or headphones.

Every device that is a source of digital sound has a built-in DAC. External DACs sound much better that the standard DACs used inside these devices.
