The ZENEO ZX is the culmination of a project we launched almost two years ago: to offer a truly wireless hi-fi quality system, combining audiophile performance, ergonomics and versatility.
HEART OF THE SYSTEM: CLASS AB AMPLIFICATION
The ZENEO ZX system has four completely independent amplifiers whose function is to power each loudspeaker. The advantage of multi-amplification is that it allows customization for each type of speaker. The woofers will be powered by 70W RMS / 150W pulse class AB amplifiers and the tweeters by 20W RMS / 40W pulse class AB amplifiers.
Class AB is a combination of class A and class B which makes it its exceptional musicality, it is the most used amplification class in hifi amplifiers for demanding audiophiles.
On the other hand, this type of amplifier requires a quality power supply and heat sinks, which makes it a fairly
expensive but unbeatable in terms of sound quality.
100% DIGITAL COMMUNICATION BETWEEN SPEAKERS
The entire audio signal from the master speaker is transmitted to the slave speaker using a 32-bit Tri-core processor. The synchronization between the speakers is perfect thanks to the computing power of the processor.
Its signal processing is comparable to that of high-end studio equipment. Most processing is done in 56-bit mode
full, double precision, resulting in very good low-level signal performance.
No low pass filter on the woofer but several cascading plug filters providing linear phase filtering.
The ZENEO ZX system is equipped with two analog inputs: AUX1 configurable in PHONO and AUX2/Streamer mode, two digital inputs: one optical and one coaxial as well as a USB B input allowing the connection of a PC or MAC computer.
Analog digital decoding is entrusted to a WOLFSON 24-bit/192kHz DAC recognized for its musicality.
The ZENEO ZX system is technically accomplished and offers high-level electronics, both in terms of amplification and signal processing, but what about the acoustic part?
We were guided by the same requirements for the design of the cabinet, the loudspeakers and the filtering. The boxes are made of medium due to its rigidity and manufacturing precision. Partitions and reinforcements prevent any vibration or interference. The internal volume of the enclosure has been calculated so that its association with the loudspeakers is optimal. The characteristics of the port allow a perfect match with the loudspeakers and the volume of the enclosure.
The woofers are fitted with a treated paper membrane with stiffening surfacing to obtain a neutral and lively sound. The pure copper voice coils are wired on a capton support. To avoid harshness and improve smoothness, the tweeters have impregnated fabric membranes and the voice coils are cooled in ferrofluid.
We are evolving in an environment where dematerialized music, stored in various and varied mobile devices (computers, tablets, smartphones and other walkmans), is taking an increasingly important place in our daily lives. Network music is not left out with quality services like Spotify, Qobuz, Deezer, Amazon Music, Tidal or TuneIn offering more than 100.000 radio stations.
We offer two versions of the ZENEO ZX, an aptX HD Bluetooth version or a more complete version that also includes a WiFi network player allowing access to additional features such as playback from a NAS (Network Hard Drive) and the multiroom. It should be noted that the WiFi version includes a second 24-bit / 192kHz converter.
