Owners "Voltikus" who understands electronics, paint scheme components or make detailed pictures of the innards and the PCB.

Please give the exact dimensions of the connector, in millimeters.

The photo can not see all the components, and especially the motherboard. Circuitry is not visible. Therefore it is necessary that the owner would Voltikus disassembled it, rewrote parts (nominal) and took a picture of the PCB circuit.

I'm looking forward to DSD on the Gold; they told me to keep my eyes peeled for the update.

I've very much enjoyed the HP amp on the ZG, with the exception of the HE-6 it's done a wonderful job with all my headphones. I do prefer the BA, but it's a BA, which is IMO the best valve amp available today, bar none.

No kidding. I'm absolutely not taking apart my Voltikus (or any other part of the ZG). I'm not that curious or motivated.

Been attempting to get DSD working for a few days with J. River. Something's not right.
 
Anyone got it working?

Using Windows 7 x64, J. River Media Center reports the Zodiac ASIO driver does not support 384kHz. Windows Control Panel shows 192kHz max after installing the new driver and updating to Control Panel v3.

Driver shows as 1.61.0.0

J. River reports ASIO Zodiac driver present but it just doesn't playback anything higher than 192kHz. 

I have tried setting all different modes in Control Panel:

FS Class1 (obviously won't work)
HS Class1
HS Class2

I sent a trouble ticket in. I use J. River looking to try in a few other players now... This is from the ini file but I can't get the Class 2 setting to do ANY audio playback.

agreed on one point (the BA's prowess) got rid of my BA for a Leviathan though.  

post #434 of 489

Yup, my bad, I jumped the gun. Still, I can't get the ASIO driver to work at all.
