    A cheap solution is combine a micro USB to USB male and a micro USB to USB female. Each costs ~ $2 on AE.

    How is this compared to walnut?

    Just got this in, too. Haven't listened yet, as I got Shanling M2s in same day, lol.

    I forget, is output impedance known? If not, is someone measuring it?

    Got my zishan Z1 on 29th. All the comment earlier Spot On.. And Z1 read my 64gb card almost immediately.

    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.

    Check this store, look for micro -> micro OTG .. I use the right angled one for my Fiio Q1

    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

    Woa, I know Z1 can do USB dac but is amp mode confirmed?
  13. macky112
    Music needs to be paused first, and then you use Next/Previous buttons to change folders
  14. noknok23
    Amp works fine yes, just tested yesterday
  15. macky112
    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
