    How to update your Zishan Z2 firmware:

    Unzip the file in the root folder of the micro sd card. Turn the Z2 on, and the firmware will start automatically. Usually takes 3-5 seconds, after the light stops flashing , is done. Delete the firmware file from the card root and you done.

    Listen to the left right test on this website using the Z2 as a DAC. If left is left and right is right, then it's up to date: http://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_index.php

    That is quick..... I kind of laugh a bit when I saw the description stating "Luxury Metal unibody, Fashion Aluminum alloy casing", thank you anyways for starting this thread.

    I suspect my burson opamp will sound much better on this as well as my high impedance earbuds. Dear, it's hard to resist.

    I had a hunch something like this would happens as soon as I ordered Z1. Chi-fi sure produce stuff at breakneck speed. Well for the price to get low cost ak4490 I have no complain though. Will order this as soon as impressions came in. Hopefully it can double as a proper Dac, and somehow support akm digital filters too. Finger crossed.

    Hey, didn't notice you are also from Malaysia, may I ask do you know a music store called Stars Picker?
  9. fairx
    yes.. I ordered few stuff form them. But never been there myself. I frequent E1 in Sg Wang and Jaben in Sentral. I live in Perak and spend very limited time in capital KL. My visit usually work related and always "balik hari" . BTW i actually just update my profile :wink:
  10. Ver JJ
    I see, I often visit there because I go to my College by train and Stars Picker is just a few stations away. Never been to Jaben...... maybe I will visit them soon....

    Does anyone know if Z2 can skip folders?
    (MAJOR function missing on Z1, as far as I know..)
  12. noknok23
    You'll be happy to find out that hit 'pause, next' does folder skip on z1
