Mini-Review: digiZoid ZO "portable subwoofer" - Page 66

post #976 of 996

Really would love to put in a pre-order about now.

 

It's October and I couldn't help but send a email asking when the Zo 2 launches. >.<

 

I have a shipito consolidation box just itching to be sent but I've decided to wait until I can add this.

 

The waiting game continues...

Hey everyone,

 

Please make sure to check out the new thread for recent updates/announcements surrounding the ZO.2 launch!

 

Found here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/574126/digizoid-zo-2-news-thread

Regarding the review, has anyone tried a Zo with a K701/2 ? Very curious how the Zo affects it.

post #979 of 996

i'm curious to really understand the technology behind this.

 

isn't it colouring the music and adding something to the chain? my guess is it works like a second amp in-line - much like what Musical Fidelity's "superchargers"

(http://www.stereophile.com/solidpoweramps/907mf).

 

also it can't just add bass/treble without modifying the total sound signature - would the "imaging" of a well-recorded CD, say Jazz at the Pawnshop, stay the same? the imagined placements and distances of the players and instruments on the set?

 

anyone care to review a few notable and common CDs with the Zo to elaborate?

Its white mans magic. Given my woeful performance in physics and maths at both secondary and tertiary level, I dont pretend to understand what these guys are actually doing to the signal - as long as it works when my V2 arrives, I will be very happy. If not, I will have learnt a valuable lesson re blazing FOTMs and the calming effects of beer. Now *that* is one 'signal processor' I completely understand !

i didnt hear any coloration, but improvement to the quality and presentation of my music.

from digital to analog, its like that.

so just got the Digizoid ZO2, and I gotta say I love it. This thing brings power, it gives the bass one hell of a kick, as much as my 7.1 Yamaha receiver. The bass boost has an interesting contour, it is a lot like a bypass, the same way a sub woofer works hence the "personal sub woofer". It is really great, it does not warm the treble or mids too much, but I feel like the lower mids could use some more mids and less warmth, but that is very seldom. I like the black background too, and it is a HUGE step up from the E6, I absolutely hate the E6 now... It simply made my music warmer. This little device works wonders, granted in terms of amplification it isn't good considering there is only two presets and the lower one is really quiet and the higher one isn't as hifi.

Is getting an LOD expressly for the ZO2 a waste of money? I'd be running it from in iPhone 4.

There's some improvement, how noticeable it is is up to your ears.  You can get a cheap and decent one from fiio for about 6bucks.

Sorry to gravedig but

 

Oh my Jesus

 

Am I the only one who saw that first graph on the page for the SE530 with 32 ohm load, and just kind of laughed stupidly? basshead.gif

Conclusion: no matter if low impedance or difficult multi-armature IEMs, the ZO drives them just fine, without any issues, without bass roll-off, or without frequency response roller coasters. Everything else is just fine as well.

(Some of the no load tests were with USB plugged in, to recharge - their noise level, THD, IMD, are somewhat off, due to USB being noisy - the 16 Ohm and 32 Ohm tests have no such issues.)

Hey guys, here is my unboxing video, size comparison and set up guide!

 

 

Not Sure if this is working so link is here

ZO2 is excellent product, small, lightweight, and does what it says superbly. i use ZO in subwoofer mode with C3 and find it amazing for the price and conviniently portable. this will not replace a portable amp or DAC with line ins and outs... but ZO 2 will inject bass across the entire range to bring music to live. ZO is a good example of when a superb implementation and simplicity pay off. could not be more happier with this product, congratulations @ ZO team.

This little device is the best thing I've found on head-fi in terms of cost/benefit performance.. it just makes everything so musical!

 

Does anybody have any info on when the zo3 with full spectrum smartvektor implemention is dropping?

Just sent the manufacture a message to see if/when they will be working on it. Hopefully they will respond soon. 

post #990 of 996

There's slight delay on the ZO3 due to some stuff they are currently working on, I won't spill the beans exactly what though but they will probably do that themselves soon.
