What is the Zen Mini Music Server

The Zen Mini Music Server is a small, stylish and silent music server based on our popular Zen. It’s designed to users who have smaller music libraries but still want a silent, high-quality music server they can proudly show on next to their audio gear. The Zen Mini is roughly the size of a Mac Mini but taller. It’s a great match for the Sonos Connect units.

The Zen Mini automatically stores CDs to lossless format (FLAC) with a very accurate CD ripper that ensures your CD is transmitted bit by bit to the internal hard drive. You can access the Zen via your network so you can easily move your music collection and even download digital music directly to it.

The Zen Mini itself is not only a music server but an audiophile-grade music player. Couple it with an USB DAC, preferably supporting the asynchronous USB protocol, and it plays up to 24bit/384Khz FLAC and DSD files bit-perfect. You can then control the music player via a smartphone, tablet or laptop. The control app is available for iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android, Windows 8 Phone and Windows 8 RT. If you don’t have a network music player yet, the Zen + USB DAC provides better sound quality than any music streamer at the same price, with the advantage of simplicity being a server and player in one package.

If you own a multi-room music player system such as Sonos or Squeezebox, the Zen Mini is pre-configured to be a server for these systems, allowing you to listen to your music at any time without having your PC on and with much better performance than any NAS currently on the market.

In addition to these, the Zen Mini works flawlessly with DLNA network music players

The Zen Mini automatically creates mobile versions of your music in mp3 so you can take them with you on your iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet. It’s also possible to stream music directly to your phone or tablet using the Zen Mini’s DLNA capabilities.
