Jack,  Yes, that's great to hear.  For those of you who are not familiar with this post office - or the volume that goes through there, on tax day (April 15th), they literally put out orange pylons on the main highway and have those canvas mail carts out on the road collecting the tax returns that people are mailing in sort of like a "drive-through" fashion.  There are cops around, flares lit, etc.  It's kind of funny to watch, but horrible to get stuck in if you're just trying to pass through the area.

ZO is really more of a hardware EQ than it is an amp. For an easy to drive headphone, I think most will just prefer ZO. After all, a well done EQ can be very enjoyable.

No argument from me, but imagine if you could combine the two - pipe the output of the ZO into a neutral amp for powerful bass into harder to drive phones ..... unfortunately, headphone out <> line-out, or so the techies tell me.

^ Don't see why you couldn't combine the two, especially since even combined, they combo comes in at a fairly cheap price (by head-fi standards). 

 

I run the ZO from my D10/UHA-4 all the time, no problems (either usb or DAP HO/Line out to DAC/Amp's line in, DAC/Amp head out to ZO line in, ZO head out to 'phones).

Ordered both the ZO and E11, so should be able find out how the combo works...soon very soon...

 

Have you personally used the ZO ClieOS? hows the amp on it, does it in par with E5?

 

Thanks

Did you buy it from PJBOX ? Did they send you an email notice about your item had been sent ?

 

I know this is not their fault, but it's so annoying that I ordered mine on the 5th and still haven't got it, well I hope this is worth the waiting.

Yes.  I emailed them requesting an update but they were closed (on holiday).  I did get an email once they were open though stating when it would be sent out...

Do you set them like this [Source > ZO > AMP], or like this [Souce > AMP > ZO]?

 

The first one is the better way to doing it as you always want EQ going before the amp or else you are wasting the benefit of adding an amp.

Listen to both and set it to the one that sounds best to you.

I have read about it, but I don't have any interest at the moment to pick one up.

First listen with REOs. Awesome for a portable amp. The bass boost works really well and adds great depth to the REOs.
