‘Exclusive’ for your ears only.
The ZEN Streamer has one of the most fully-optimised software platforms in the world. From the device’s drivers, to the kernel (the heart of the operating system), to the shell (which interfaces with the kernel), to the applications and the user interface, everything is fully optimised for seamless operation and excellent sonic performance.
An ingenious part of the ZEN Stream’s design is the ability to select between ‘Exclusive’ modes. Individual settings dedicated to specific modes of operation to deliver the purest possible performance. All other programs are shut down to minimise ‘software jitter’, an often overlooked aspect that negatively impacts the quality of computer audio playback. This ensures that the ZEN Stream is not merely a ‘jack of all trades’, but a master of all too. The 'Exclusive' modes are:
- All-in-one (AIO) covers all modes
- DLNA streaming
- NAA streaming
- Roon Bridge streaming*
- Tidal streaming
If you are a subscriber to Tidal’s Masters Tier, this is the mode for you.
