Is there a significant cost difference between the caps?

Not much. The two can be bought from Mouser for around a quarter or so..

Mine has been shipped from Chinas as of today. I don't know when I'll be receiving it but I am pretty excited after all these reviews.

Greetings and congratulations!

 

My D-Zero, and from what I understand, others too have been getting our D-Zero's in about three days from the time they ship which is absolutely incredible.

I'm interested in buying the D.-Zero and using it with my Droid phone. Can I run a 3.5 from my headphones jack to the 3.5 aux in and be able to take advantage of the dzero amp and dac? Or would it just amplify the signal and not use the dac?

The DAC section is usable only in conjunction with your computer via USB

So if you use the "Aux In/Out" on the front to connect to a mp3 player, you'll bypass the DAC???

 

post #147 of 222

That's what it sounds like. Then you're just listening to the D-Zero as a straight forward headphone amplifier &

there's nothing wrong with this. It is an outstanding headphone amp in its own right.

Besides what you were expecting the D-Zero to do, no DAC does! The only way any DAC is ever in the audio

chain is to feed it a DIGITAL signal via USB, Optical, Coax or "balanced" AES/EBU.

vinylrules - thanks for the information!!! As you can probably tell, I'm pretty new to the mid-fi/high-fi thing. Been reading a ton of threads, but with all the information out there I tend to get bogged down.

 

Wondering if I should even bother with a DAC?? I'm trying to find a DAC/AMP that I can connect my Zen Vision M to (I'll be using the A/V out on the Zen). Does anyone know if it would be an upgrade in sound quality using a reasonably priced DAC (<$200) versus the one in the Zen?? I'm using Shure 840 HPs so I'm not to concerned with the amp part of a dac/amp (the Shure's are really pretty easy to drive).

I hooked up my D Zero to an iPad via USB and got a warning that it uses too much power.  I shut down and restarted my iPad and voila, it works. The orange light goes on

How does it sound vs the ipad's line out?
