    A quick question. I noticed in one of the screenshots that the lowest frequency band for Eq is 60Hz. When you use rockbox parametric eq files, will the device accept bands lower than 60?
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. You can set a low shelf filter, up to 8 peak filters, and a high shelf filter. You can select the frequency peak from 20Hz to 24kHz, and the Q, for each filter.

    This is great. Thanks a mil. I have placed an order for the model without volume wheel. Hope it uses the same firmware.

    I guess the firmware of that version should be a bit different, because it uses digital volume instead of analog.
    Let's hope it still accepts rockbox's parametric eq files. Remember you'll have to use rockbox eq editor from another source, or a text editor to create the eq files.

    You are right. The firmware should be different. Another thing I noticed is that it uses AK4490 DAC instead of AK4495 which is in the Zishan DSD with volume knob. Probably because of that and no volume knob, it's slightly cheaper. Thanks for the rockbox tip. I have never done it before, need a bit of research.

    IMG_2947.JPG IMG_2948.JPG IMG_2952.JPG IMG_2955.jpg I got Smart D200+ AK4497EQ. Sadly, this is discontinued.
    Sound is awesome.
    Does anyone have this here?

    That looks very good. I didnt know this is discontinued.

    Edit - it looks like your's is a special edition, is'nt it? The ones listed in AE has AK4495EQ in them.

    Yes,this is a limited flagship model (Red body). I think normal version (Black and Gold body)is continuing. :)

    anyone tried to mod zishan? i want to replace those elna re3s to silmic ii but same values will not fit there.. what is the minimum values for voltage and capacitance here?
    6.3V 330 uF silmics barely fit here but i'm not sure if it's voltage rating is enough or not even in signal path? thanks..

    Question to T.R.A.N.C.E., NNewman, Asakist, and other knowledgeable persons/owners.
    Would you be kind enough to comment of all the variants

    1) Zishan DSD no volume dial AK4490
    2) Zishan DSD the "standard" version AK4495
    3) D200 standard version
    4) D200 v4

    5) D200+ AK4495 and AK4497

    6) E200 (?) - not on the market.

    Pro and cons. Recommandation?

    It would be very helpful to have these info in one place for someone like me unable to make a decision.
