OT: What's with all the bans on this forum, I've never been on a forum where I see "banned" sign as often as weekly before. xD Are the people extra offensive/disobeying/desperate or this forum's mods bans you more easily than others? I hope you just don't get banned only cuz keep spamming DT990 Pro are like the holy grail that every1 needs to try, that would be kind of absurd.

This thread needs pictures.  To bad mine is an original ZO.

But how do they compare to the XB500's, lol.

 

Oh boy, dont ban me, just having some fun, loving my ZO2 right now :)

Hey, Shotgun, can you give me your thoughts on a quick comparision between RE262 and GR07? I'm seriously thinking about a new upgrade... damn... lol

Also, if you can, some thoughts about ZO driving the RE262. Is it enough to feed it?

You got the ZO2 rev3 right? As I think u were the first person around here to get it. This is what I'd personally be curious about and test myself if I got the ZO2 v3 as it features now low/high gain, using headphone jack and see if it sounds better/different if using low (max vol level in low gain mode) or high gain mode and then obviously controlling the source volume to set it appropriately for similar output volumes. You get to the high gain by holding down the contour volume lvl switch for like 3 secs when you're at the highest vol level in low gain I believe MizMoxie said, just be careful with the volume especially when you're dealing with IEMs/sensitive headphones.

 

I'm just curious to know exactly if low gain maybe sounds better with easily driven headphones or even those might prefer high gain even if it means you have to set volume on your source to like 11% like I am with ZO2 v1 on my soundcard.

I'll be posting that exact comparison soon in my RE262 thread linked in my sig. 

 

 

post #896 of 1126

Yea, I did that test already. No noticeable difference between the two, I just prefer using my Line out on my ipod or turning my iPod up to about 75-85% and using the ZO2.3 to change the volume. The high gain is useful for using the ZO2 to output to my car though when I use the AUX. Of course, I do not know if this may change once burned in, but I the only difference I can tell from line out or headphone out is preference. The only reason I have a problem with HO is that I know I can use the Line out and get a purer signal to my ZO2.

OK ic well that's good, sounds like they've really improved things since ZO2 version 1 & 2.

 

EDIT: Hmm if you set the iPod volume to 75-85% doesn't it easily result in distortion though especially if you boost the contour level? At least with previous ZO versions this has been the case that usually the higher your source volume is set the easier it results in distortion in songs. Why digiZoid even recommended to start out with around 25% on the source.

I understand what you are saying, but mainly, i try to use as high quality audio sources as possible and I have never previously experienced distortion when using something between my music source and headphones/speakers that controls volume with the level from my iPod in that range. But if it's acting accordingly for me, then I guess that's a testament to the quality improvements since the previous revisions and other devices

As I am hoping to jump on the BA bandwagon and hoping to pair it with ZO what is its (ZO's) output impedance?

Good luck with that - I was initially going to ship my ZO2 to Voldemort to see if he would run the dScope over the thing, but I've since realised how good it is with music and movies. 

 

To anyone asking if the ZO2 will drive the RE262, as long as your source has a reasonable amount of grunt, the answer is yes. I am listening to this combination as I type this:

 

T51 -> ZO2V1 -> RE262

 

Its a good combination, IMO, but I've lost track of the gain situation with the V3 - the V1 has plenty of gain for the RE262.
