What's your antivirus?

F-Secure Anti-Virus. It is extremely reliable (with the price I pay it better should be) although not as fast to update their virus databese when compared to Norton.

In terms of build quality, it looks and feels cheaper than the X-Fi Go!, but so far I have encountered no real mechanical problems - will report back tomorrow morning.



bummer. too loud I assume?

if you dont mind the wait, I'll have the Z2 next week and will sure pair it with the DT1350, actually that was why I bught it for, want to see if the little beyer can be cured of a sever lack-o-bassities and lack-o-punchities.

Just ordered mine. What LODs are you guys/girls using for iPod/iPhone? Will using a LOD be better than using the cable digiZoid provides with the ZO?

Can use the lineout from the T51 with my 150-ohm RE262, but only with the volume control set to the lowest setting.

I just got my ZO2 yesterday and been listening to it the last 2 days. It wasn't that impressive at first but after switching between on and off it really makes a hell of a difference on my Shure940. I listen to a lot of Avril Lavign and i think it gives it a lot more body in the music without affecting or muddying up vocals. And i don't know how it does it but the sound stage seems a tad wider too.

 

I really like it and don't think I can do without it anymore especially on movies .. the booms, explosions and things like motorbikes just sound so much better.

 

I don't have any hiss or problems with it at all. I think it works very well.

I'm unable to use the LOD with the ZO2/ipod touch at all. The gain is set too high, so unless you want to blow your ears out, or have some pretty high impedence headphones, I don't think you'll be able to use the lineout function at all.

I tried it with my ipod classic once. My ears still don't forgive me. Should have known better than to test it with my iems plugged in my ears.

I tested it with my Denon D2000's and it still blasted the heck out of my ears. :(

 

On a side note, I went onto the digizoid website right now and saw that they are offering replacements. Looks like they did something to fix the hiss and gain for the line out...?

The trick is definitely the high impedance headphones - the 150-ohm RE262s actually work quite well from the T51 lineout (which, incidentally, is stronger than the LO on any iPod I have owned), but you wouldn't want anything above the lowest possible volume setting on the ZO. Having witnessed the ease with which you can 'blow your ears off' (ESW9, not IEMs, thankfully ..) from the LO, I shudder to think what will happen when consumers start plugging the ZO into things like A/V receivers at home ..... yes, there are clear warnings on the packaging, but how many kids are going to take a whole lot of notice ?

 

If the ZO can lay claim to anything, its the ability to do that-which-I-previously-considered-impossible : make the headphone out on a laptop sound good. I actually prefer movies and games through the ZO than with my uHA-4 : with music, the balance tips back to the DAC/amp. It would be interesting to know how many would tip the 'SmartVektor' option if someone like Asus made it a reality within their premium laptop range. Granted, they would need to build a decent amp into the thing, but this is the company that bought us the Essence STX - one has to imagine they can work out how to build a decent headphone out.
