yes something definitely for desktop audio

the zo buffer thing you mentioned sounds interesting

probably between the comp and amplifier, or amplifier and headphones

Here is what i think of this amp:

 

It is quite a long review so be prepared. Enjoy

As a matter of fact, we are currently working on a high power adapter (or "buffer" as you call it)! Although the exact specs are not final, it should be capable of increasing the output by about 10x. Testing it with the HD650s was absolutely stunning. 

 

Another cool thing is that it's multipurpose, as it can also be used with just your headphones and source (using headphone out).

 

More details to come in the near future...

This sounds good because the Zo just can't handle my HD580.

Seems like the perfect addon to release for ZO, I know it will make a huge difference to the sound as I've already tested running 2x ZO in succession out of interest and while the bass gets a little overkill in this case for most headphones (extreme bassheads rejoice!) I do spot very nice improvements with bass put aside, the sound in general gets more fullbodied & forward and engaging and fun across the whole range, I notice this same thing just comparing ZO2.1 which has higher gain setting vs ZO2.3, especially if the headphones are at least a little more demanding than very high efficient headphones, that higher gain already makes a big difference for ZO2.1, I feel ZO2.3 gets underpowered quite quickly, so this device should hopefully take care of that. :)

 

What about noise? Will this also lead to noticable higher noise level (hissing when no sound is played)?

if im understanding this correctly, this is an adapter of sorts for CURRENT zo2's right? or this to be implented in your next zo amp, zo3 or whatever you plan on calling it?

Sound like a very interesting product, please do keep us updated.

Oh, saw the ZO2 with the new packaging in a store the other days and it looks great.

Yes, or it could be used along with another amp or even on its own.

How is ZO3 coming along, I'm sure you have at least made some engineering samples of some sort? Care to share any impressions or whatever whether how great the fullrange SmartVektor is working? :P

Will the ZO2.3 work with either the 4th and 5th generation iMod's?

 

Thanks,

Ken

looks like the pictures of the imod from red wine show LOD coming out of them

so i would guess yes

post #704 of 1021

Yes. The 4th gen has the caps inside (uses mini plug to mini plug) and the 5th gen has it in the LOD.

 

The iMod needs an amp. I was curious if the ZO2 was first and foremost and amp besides doing sound shaping.

 

In looking at the instructions online, am I correct that if using it from a component that does not have a volume control, that you can only use the low gain setting on the ZO2?

 

Thanks,

Ken
