Confirmed: DD-Audio Store is selling the latest and new version of the Walnut v2.


But we are all interested to find out if there is a new version with all the hardware changes (new jacks, improved pot volume control, etc) but reverted back to socketed dip opamp

  I just got my 1st Walnut in the mail. I ordered on April 13th from AisLu Hifi Store and I received the old v2 with the hold switch! Awesome!

 
I hope you meant March 13th...

  Someone in the Chinese QQ group said Zishan Z1 DSD playback is bad!

Certainly not what we wanted to hear here.

4 weeks to Canada is fast.




:-D

Yep, didn't so much mean this delivery but how long he's been trying to get one delivered full stop

Certainly not what we wanted to hear here. 


Indeed! Edit - I have no DSD music so probably not a priority for me. Its the playback in WAV, MP3 and possibly FLAC that I'm bothered about, plus how well it operates as a USB DAC and how good it sounds with my earbuds etc.

I am curious how the sound quality of the Walnut v2 Amp ($24) compares to the XRKAudio Class A NHB (No Holds Barred - hand-tuned) Amp ($284) I just received.
It's designed and built using a total of 4 FET transistors, for a stereo amplifier, and it sounds great...

I've driven it with the Line Output of my Onkyo DP-X1 and Cayin N3 - and listened to several earphones (LZ A4 (16Ω), Hotfi HM1 (32Ω)) and earbuds (K's 500 (500Ω), VE Asura 2.0 (150Ω)).  All were wired as balanced, and connected using an Impact Audio 3.5mm TRS Plug -to- 2.5mm TRRS Jack Adapter Cable.  It's amazing how good a simple Class A Single-Ended amp can sound.
