Our gateway server with all the full benefits of innuOS, now with improved connectivity and an upgraded path for even greater flexibility. Ideal for simple integration into multi-room systems or for those making the first step to a dedicated audio server.
At Innuos, we love to listen. We listen to music and we listen to you. We heard that the ZENmini could be improved if it had an SSD option so the ZENmini S takes one of our most popular music servers and replaces the hard drive with a quiet, lightning-quick Solid-State Drive (SSD). ZENmini S upgrades the RAM from 4GB to 8GB for additional performance benefits when searching for music or copying files. It even has a power-loss protection circuit so if you lose your power, you don’t lose your music. Owners of ZENmini Mk3 will be able to upgrade to ZENmini S in early 2023.
SSD options include 1TB, 2TB or 4TB capacities. ZENmini S upgrades will be available in early 2023 for owners of the ZENmini Mk3.

The ZEN Mk3 Music Server Series continues our pursuit of bringing Digital Music to new heights. Learning from our experience and success of the ZENith MkII SE, including our collaboration with Dr. Sean Jacobs, the Mk3 family benefits from trickle-down technology.
We advanced our three key design areas: minimising power noise, reducing vibration and optimising firmware, resulting in the entire range benefiting from upgraded power supplies, new custom motherboards and new chassis. The ZEN and ZENith also receive upgraded anti-vibration with asymmetrical isolation feet, whilst the new Mini now also enjoys greater connectivity, and an optional Linear Power Supply upgrade.
ZENmini available in black· Custom motherboard with dual ethernet ports - Optimisation for audio performance and network passthrough to nearby network devices.
· Digital coaxial, Optical, and Analogue output stages.
· Optional Linear Power Supply upgrade
Improve sound quality using our external LPSU upgrade in matching chassis, backward compatible with the ZENmini MkII.
The NEW Innuos ZEN Mini Mk3 music server is the perfect companion for many hi-fi and multi-room systems such as Sonos, Bluesound, and wireless/active speakers like the Kii Three.
You can rip CDs in FLAC or WAV formats for optimum sound quality, and also play back AIFF, ALAC, AAC and MP3 files.
Streaming services supported are Spotify, TIDAL, and Qobuz, and Internet radio is also accessible.
The ZEN mini Mk3 has two 3.0 USB sockets for extra storage and back-up, as well as dual ethernet connections, allowing daisy chaining to Ethernet-connected DACs.
The custom 'innuOS' operating system includes software that makes it extremely easy to change or add metadata and artwork via any web browser on a desktop PC, or even a phone or tablet. Easy to use, versatile, and above all reliable.
The ZEN mini Mk3 is also Roon compatible, allowing it to function as part of a Roon ready system both as an endpoint, or as a Roon Core.
The metal casework of the ZEN mini provides proper sound insulation for quiet operation, and much better heat dissipation than conventional plastic cased NAS drives.
