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

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.
