Review: ZERO 24 BIT/192KHz DAC/Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp - Page 7

post #91 of 9361
Hmm... It seems the Zero has become the new TC-7510 (or what it was when it first came out).

have you compared the zero to emu 0404 usb?

But this one has a real transformer which is key around here for anything to have.

Me, I'm playing with the idea of putting in something like the LT1361, LT1364, LT1469, AD8599, LME49720, AD746, AD8620, OPA2107...
I am sure someone is thinking of it. Easy to do, go for it.

The 797 is getting some very good press lately. I am going to pick up some. They have been around for a while but I haven't read of anyone not liking them.

Ordered mine on Monday...

Well, I think all of this is a good thing. Opamp rollers are coming out in force, budget minded audio enthusiests are here in force, even folks that might normally pass on this unit do to price are here. Everyone can tell a good deal when they see it! Feel the love (for audio at a wonderful price)!

So according to the thread, we have seven eager members awaiting their Zero:

arteom
dsmudger
edguetzow
enigma_1406
nor_spoon
shopper
smirnoff04

. . . and possibly one more, if I weren't bothered by the idea of adding to the flood the orders!


Let me just say, there will be great appreciation for those of you seven, possibly more, who keep us updated with details!

For those of you that want to use it with a laptop with no optical out, the TBAAM (which is only about $30) provides a good pathway. I would like to try out this DAC/Amp. How big is this unit Penchum? I don't have all that much space on my desk.

About 8 5/8" wide by 9" deep (not including hookups) and 2 5/8" high.
