I'd been thinking of selling the ZX2, but now have to consider having a dedicated DAP for my two main IEMs, which seems a bit ridiculous. May 18, 2019

      Hello gixxerwimp,
      Your impressions about the ZX2-Andro cables really helped me. In the end, you're still using the han-sound zen?Just got a ZX2-Andro combo, now I'm looking for a cable upgrade and stopped between Zen and No5

        Still have the Zen and No. 5. But also got an OC Orpheus Mk2 with 4.4mm for the balanced out of the ZX300. All 3 work well with Andro.

        Thanks. That was probably the only place I didn't look. That box was still checked, but I unchecked/saved then rechecked/saved. Hopefully this will put things right.

      ZX300 in the house. Too bad the 4.4 adapter I bought from Geekria shorts all 3 GNDs together ... WTF

        Sound came out, but connecting an SE cable causes huge amount of hiss with Andros, not so noticeable with EX1000. Hope I haven't fucked up the output stage. Got another adapter for my 4-pole 3.5mm balanced cable on the way.

        Managed to un-short the L/R - signals. No hiss out of 4.4 with Andros, ZX300 seems to have emerged unscathed.

        MZR = Measurer, BWC = Big Woofer Club, IEMW = IEM Wizard. Guessing on the last one.

        same here! thanks to @james444 and yourself for pointing me out to this 3M micropore solution! Myself I have "only" used 2 strips with the stock cable and stock isolation tips and this sounds quite promising! need to do more listening though to confirm!

      Pi Zero W is great, until it hangs. I hate that spinning circle of death.

        I think the built in WiFi is interfering with these. I have to reboot my Pi Zero every few days (it is only connected to a printer using CUPS). I am thinking about getting a hub and a separate USB WiFi adapter.

        More or less fixed by disabling "wifi power save". Just hangs occasionally after using a phone to control Volumio through the web GUI.

      MCTH finally made it to Taiwan. It's at home, waiting for me to get off work. Pi Zero W also in hand. It's literally the size of a matchbox.

        Yes, unboxing was very pleasurable, aside from the dent. Forgot to mention that in my post just now. Same happened with my K7XX a while back. The outer box took a beating and the inner was a bit scathed.

        Likely didn't happen locally. Taiwan Post is pretty good. MCTH was awol for over 2 weeks between Frankfurt and here. My money is on it happening then.

        My CC declined & blocked a Schiit Order <twice> in Feb, due to some "fraud prevention" nonsense (even though I shopped w/ same CC/Account since 2013 w/ no issues, whatsoever).
        That was during an unexpected 2.5 weeks delay; so after a Pending charge went into limbo, then through, then blocked AGAIN, 17 days later... I Emailed ([email protected]), so he FWD it to Amy & Laura, right away, which helped to resolve it all.

        BTW, Emailing Jason directly should (IMHO) be like the <last resort>, since he's definitely busy-enough as is w/ running the business, engineering new products/upgrades; to Troubleshoot [all of us] or answer our [silly] Questions.
        But he does, indeed, FWD/Notify the proper folks at Schiit, if the issues are serious/important enough, for a Customer, which is why I stuck w/ them; they won't leave ya hangin' in the end!
