Where can I find micros usb in micro usb out cable to pair the zishan with my phone? I found one on AE but it's $80
A cheap solution is combine a micro USB to USB male and a micro USB to USB female. Each costs ~ $2 on AE.

Tried the zishan z1 quickly with multi driver iem from a friend..
Actually it sounds fine! I don't know if it is at his best but it's nothing like the walnut.
Zishan is burying the walnut

I have annoying drop out with the Zishan as DAC edit: no more drop out using short usb cable
Still not figured how to mount the sd card on my laptop

This is probably not the best place to ask this question but I'm intrigued by this little beast and need to make a decision.
I've got two Fiio x1's, one for music and one for bbc speech programmes and a Samsung Galaxy player 5.0 for podcasts.
The lack of bookmarking on the Fiio's is a real pain for the bbc stuff
I can see me using a Zishan for music not for speech because I listen once and then delete so not being able to delete on the machine rules it out.
So why do I need yet another machine with no display and less functionality than every other machine I own?

Please help.
I know that I've got a problem and you guys are all rational and sensible when it comes to buying yet more kit aren't you?
Anyway it's only 30 quid.

Listening music on a screenless player is an amazing experience. And if its not enough, Zishan does also portable amp and dac. Sell your extra FiiO X1 you don't need it :p

Music needs to be paused first, and then you use Next/Previous buttons to change folders

What what! Both amp mode AND USB dac mode? And a dedicated DAC that boot

Wow now I just need to wait for mine to arrive to compare to my Walnut V2.1
