iFi Zen Phono

LPs + ZEN = Magical combo.

You’ve spent years building your dream LP collection. We know because we have done the same!

The ZEN Phono is a wonderful enhancement to your vinyl setup. It will max out every MM/MC cartridge.

Choc full of AMR/iFi trickle-down vinyl technology, it will have you poring over your LPs into the wee, small hours.

Spec’d to make you smile

Unlike any other entry-level phono stage. The ZEN Phono has:

  • MM/MC from 36dB >72dB gain. Super-silent noise floor -151dBV
  • Precise RIAA with Balanced output, performance comparable to +$1k phono stages 
  • AI sub-sonic filter. Addresses warp without eliminating bass or causing phase issues
