    Knowing that Walnut V2 is a massive success,i am sure this will be another, with DSD support now.
    Playback codecs are :

    Anyone tried this yet?

    Hoping there's better support for file organization, folder skipping, etc vs Walnut...

    It was mentioned about the folder support.I order it this morning and he already sold 15 units.
    If it plays DSD properly and card support up to 256 GB then is a real value player, better then Walnut.

    Sorry, but I don't see anything mentioned about folder support here or in the product description. Can you please post the info and your source?

    Thanks for posting that. Totally missed it when I was looking at the description on AE. Heck, maybe I should get one, too. Sure is cheap enough...

    Sabre ES9023 DAC chip, not bad for how much it sells. Hopefully is a big improvement over Walnut especially the DSD playback that i have been told is native.

    I've ordered one. Certainly have wasted a lot more than 31USD here Lol. Will surely leave impressions when I receive it.

    Folder support
    When music is paused, next/previous buttons navigate through folders
    Translated from Taobao Zishan store

    It has USB DAC mode, not sure about stand alone amp mode. It has firmware update support, But i didn't find any mentioning of shuffle play mode.

    I ordered one as well. Am a big fan of the walnut v2 and zishan DSD, really looking forward to the Z1

    Another Walnut fan here who's taken a punt on this. If it can maintain the best bits of the Walnut (the power and the sound quality), and have additional features then it will be amazing for the price.

    Just because it looks like the Walnut though from the outside, trying not to assume too much, the Walnut may be basic but what it does, it does brilliantly.
