I placed my order pretty early so hopefully it should be amongst the first that go out. However I don't think it'll be this week, unless they ship it tomorrow :P

Hey guys.. Where is the difference between  ZO FS and ZO FS+?

The FS+ has a secondary amp in it too that allows you to switch between SmartVektor on and SmartVektor off. The signal is routed so that it bypasses the SmartVektor processing with the second amp. In the previous ZO2.3 and the ZO FS the SmartVektor cannot be switched off, it's always on. So ZO FS+ allows you to choose between a more "fun and engaging" and a more "transparent, neutral" sound.

Well, looks like the aggressive July shipping was missed. Don't mind if it means Paul is working out kinks.

Agreed. Although I have to admit, I do get a bit annoyed when a target date comes and goes without any sort of comment or update.

This Week’s Updates

(Aug 3-9th)

Slight Delay in Shipping: We wanted to give y’all a quick update on the shipping status, as we know we said we’d be shipping by end of July. So here it goes…

The last thing we do before final assembly is apply something called conformal coating to areas of the circuit board that need protection — in particular, spots where components for SVT’s circuits are placed (if you catch my drift  *wink wink*). We should have received the coating material by mid-last week, but it was a no-show. After calling the distributor, we found out they were out of stock, and our order had been put on hold (of course NOW they tell us, right?)! So we scrambled to find another distributor who had it in stock, and it should arrive Mon or Tues this week (Aug 3rd). As soon as it arrives, we’ll start gooping up the parts, but they’ll take at least 24 hrs to dry. So we’re shooting for Thursday (and absolutely no later than Friday), for first shipments to go out.

We’re really really sorry everyone, and we hope you can forgive us!

Any comparisons between ZO2 and these?

That's a bit hard since no ZO FS has been shipped yet.

My mistake, but I thought someone posted that they recieved their unit some days ago. Must be losing my mind!

 

Anyways, dont feel like letting go of ZO2 yet as its a really light and probably the most convenient of all amps to date.

the ZO2 is awesome...I still use it all the time with my Beyer 1350s. Amazing pairing. Bass stays nice and crisp...no bloat.

Hoping to see a shipment notice any time now. :)

Anyone ever replaced the battery on a Zo2.3?
post #209 of 341

Look what came in the mail today!

 

 

Will post some impressions later tonight after I've had some time to listen.

 

Initial: Feeding ODAC line out at full volume -> ZO FS without any clipping. Feels very solid -- well built. It's a good bit heavier than the 2.3. The UI is easy to navigate, and has some slick animations. There is no low/high gain mode switching to worry about -- it's all one scale that seamlessly moves between attenuation and gain modes. SVT levels feel much more linear, with a smooth noticable transition all the way up to 32.

Did you got tracking number?, or it just show up without previous notice?... do you know where are they located?

Thanks,

Ricardo.
