    Here is another player to consider, but at a much steeper price, in the vein of the Walnut. I think this is going for the Terra Player crowd, but significantly cheaper than that, and they are taking pre orders. I will have one soon hopefully.

    What does this one have over the Zishan? I read the specs but can't get a grasp on how it will sound.
  3. Dark Helmet
    The build is supposed to rival the Tera Player. We'll see. He did a prototype a year or so ago, that was highly regarded, and the new version is supposed to be better. I have the Zishan coming also so we will see.

    Any news about walnut v3?
  5. peter123
    Yea, someone is trying to promote it in the Zishan thread.

    I'd post the link if this forum wasn't close to useless on mobile devices at the moment....

    Walnut V2s: has shuffle mode and repeat single song (dedicated button) and 5 preset EQ (dedicated button), has amp mode and USB DAC mode, supports folder structure (long press prep and next buttons to change folder, my guess is digital volume control is gone?), rollable rc5532 opamp, supports FLAC and APE

    Walnut V2.2: no EQ and shuffle buttons (and their functions). No FLAC and ape support. Doesn't seem to have folder support as long press prev and next buttons still adjust digital volume. Has amp mode AND USB DAC MODE. Rollable rc5532 opamp

    I'm guessing by the end of the year it will have 10 buttons.

    If it can solve the roll off problem I wouldn't mind too.

    I can't wait for a sq comparaison between walnut and zishan.

    my guess is the bass and treble roll off from Walnut V2.0 RMAA measurements may have something to do with it's uber secret SoC, tho cap rolling may improve bass roll off to a degree.

    I assume V2.1 is the same SoC because features stayed the same

    however, V2.2 and V2s has new features (V2.2 now can do USB DAC, and V2s has all those new features listed above), which makes me wonder if it's still using the same uber secret SoC, or it is a new uber secret SoC

    if it's the same SoC, then it is possible a FW upgrade would "unlock" the USB DAC function on V2.0 and V2.1, if it's new SoC then SQ may be different

    these are all my assumptions, so don't throw me under a bus if they are all wrong!

    I am STILL waiting for my Z1, but when I get it, I will run a RMAA measurement on it and report to Z1 thread, but I am still under the believe a dedicated DAC on the Z1 should sound better than an SoC on the 'Nut
