4.4mm outputs
Last Updated a year ago

The ZEN DAC sports Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced outputs at both the front (for headphones) and back (for output into another amplifier via 4.4mm to dual XLR).

We’ve used a balanced design for the analogue stage – rare and not found at this price point. This makes it pretty special for the best sound quality.

A balanced cable has the same left + and right +. But it has a separate left - and right -. With totally separate wiring 'crosstalk' is negligible.

Therefore, a balanced connection is the superior headphone wiring configuration.
