iFi Zen DAC 3 review: striking the perfect balance between price and performance

iFi Zen DAC 3 review: Two-minute review

The iFi Zen DAC 3’s arrival comes with high expectations. iFi had hit it out of the park with the original Zen DAC, and hit it further still with the next model’s replacement, which means the pressure of expectation on this Zen DAC 3 is significant.

Visually, it’s an evolution rather than a revolution – and that’s the case where specification is concerned too (although the switch from USB-B to USB-C is very welcome indeed). At a glance, the biggest change of all is in the asking price – this latest model breaks the $200 / £200 / AU$200 barrier, and not by pennies.
