Innuos Zen Mini MKIII Audio Server

The Zen Mini MK3 features upgrades from the previous MK2 model, benefitting from trickle-down technology from innovations included on the Zenith MKII SE, and Innuos’ work with Dr. Sean Jacobs. Areas focused on for improvement include minimising power noise, reducing vibration and optimising firmware, resulting in an upgraded power supply, new custom motherboards and a new chassis. The Zen Mini is the entry-level audio server with a half width design, available with drive sizes of 1TB, 2TB, 4TB and 8TB, and an optional linear power supply is also available for an improved delivery of power.

The Zen Mini MK3 offers an easy solution to effectively file and hear your CD collection, by ripping the CDs and storing the content as digital audio, available for playback whenever you like. Access all your CDs from your connected smartphone, and edit the data and album artwork. Connect the Zen Mini MK3 to your Hi-Fi system simply, whilst also connecting to any multi-room system to play music throughout your whole house. The Zen Mini brings your CD collection back to life, making it easily accessible from a dedicated digital audio server.

With the MK3 comes some improvements to the engineering, in order to maximise the performance of the Zen Mini. A custom motherboard is optimised for audio performance, and with dual Ethernet ports, the Zen Mini MK3 allows for network pass through to nearby network devices. Digital coaxial, optical and analogue output stages are included to increase connectivity, meaning you can connect the Zen Mini MK3 in almost any way you need to.

Powered by innuOS, Innuos’ uniquely developed operating system, the Zen Mini MK3 allows you to manage your entire music library from your smartphone or tablet. Edit album data including artwork, and control CD ripping, playing, streaming, and back up the data all from your smart device. innuOS also contains additional intelligent features to organise your music library, such as rule-based music import engine, and Assisted CD Ripping mode, as well as running in Roon Core or Roon Bridge mode.
