    Oh my God, that worked. Hellooo shuffle mode! Thank you.

    That makes sense. Yesterday it works, today it shows in device manager but not in sound control panel. Status under "properties" say it seems to be working fine.

    So how are you finding the LT1364 in the Z1? I listen a lot to such genre of music too.

    Thanks for the informative reply mate! Mind I ask how did you find the post in such a quick fashion? Is there a search function now for threads?

    That is good news to me!

    So it only POPs when you plug or unplug your headphones/earbuds? No pop sound when you turn it on and off?

    So I could not wait anymore and just ordered the following from Taobao:

    A Zhisan Z1

    2x 40v 10uf ROE "Pig's Blood Capacitor"
    2x 16v 100uf ROE "Pig's Blood Capacitor"

    1 Alps Pot
    1 Tocos Pot
    1 Taiwan Generic Pot

    What capacitor's are those? Are they good? I want to super-mod a Z1 too...or a Walnut.
  8. AudioNewbi3
    AFAIK, these are NOS West Germany Capacitor produced during the latter part of the 20th century

    omg received the Z1 already. Taobao shipping is too damn quick. Ordered it on the 5th and now am using it as a DAC lol.

    Shall give it a good listen before posting :D

    Re: Battery Life.

    How many hours are you guys getting off of the battery on your Zishan? I have charged it and let it run two cycles now and it seems like I get about 20 hours. Now that's pretty amazing, but my Walnut V2 is *still* going and it's been about 30 hours on a single charge, which is even more amazing. Is it a known fact that the Walnut gets better battery life?

    Here's my method: charge each one until full. Put in a MicroSD Card of music into each, turn the volume all the way up -- with no headphones attached -- and let them play until they shut off. Anything wrong with my method? I should also note that the MicroSD Card for the Walnut contains the ID3 tagged stripped mp3's and wav files (grrr..) The Zishan contains a Micro SD Card with a combination of FLAC, Wav, and mp3 files with no stripping (which makes it the better player IMHO.) Anything I am doing wrong here? Does FLAC use more power than WAV to decode?

    My main concern is not necessarily which unit has the better battery, but that I am getting the expected battery life from the Zishan -- since like I said in a previous post it arrived with a dead battery because the unit was left on. I want to make sure that didn't cause an effect on anything.

    These are my results. My usage is listening to music 2 hrs per day.

    Walnut with mp3, I get ~20 hrs.
    Zishan with flac, I get ~14 hrs.

    Can I ask how you ordered it - through an agent? What did you pay in shipping? All this waiting time from Ali is killing me :L3000:
  13. weedophile
    For my country, taobao offers 5 shipping companies that ships direct from their warehouse to SG. No middle agent involved :D

    Just a word to the wise, do not do what I did and click "disable" under devices. It's now locked it an eternal tug of war when plugged in, this Zishan tries to self install and Windows 10 keeps removing it. I see it blink on and off every 5 seconds in "connected devices." It's at this point I'm getting curious about the new Walnut!

    I don't have the Zishan yet and don't use windows (so can't test), but I'd search the windows registry for "zishan" and "z1" and delete everything related to the player. If the problem does'nt go away with a restart it must be saved on the computer somewhere, which I would think is in the registry. Otherwise a bit of googling will probably give the solution, it can't be that hard to make it forget the Zishan
