    So the Walnut only does a 32gb micro SD card? I did not know that...I've been using a 64gb card...of course, not filled up to capacity yet.

    But many have opened their walnut for op amp change didnt they see which dac its using I dont think it will be home grown for such a cheap diy dap.

    How long does it generally take for something to be available on eBay or Aliexpress when it first pops up on Taobao?

    the soc chip is actually scratched off manually so it remains unknown

    There is an annoying ad in the way can you paste the specs? Much appreciated Mac.

    @T.R.A.N.C.E. posted a photo of a Walnut, before they started sanding the P/N off of decoder chip. The image appears to have been lost in the Forum software "upgrade".

    It wasn't easy to read the text in the photo, but I believe U3 is in this family of chips - it's got the right number of pins... [​IMG]

    For those still interested in the older V2, I just ordered one from CKLewis on this link -

    Well it seems the chip itself is why we don't have flac support. So much for a firmware update. :frowning2:

    Not to change the subject, but for improved capabilities - take a look at the Zishan Z1, or wait for the next iteration of the Walnut.

    Using foobar2000, I've converted 252 of my albums of FLAC files, to 320Kb MP3 files (total of ~32GB).
    Just to test and make sure they sounded OK, I listened to a few of them, using VLC on the PC, playing through my Micro iDSD, driving a couple of different earphones & earbuds.

    As an experiment, I transferred 13 files (albums) to my new Walnut v2 (with socketed NE5532), hooked up a set of Qain25 earbuds, and started the music playing.
    Wow, I'm impressed with the Bass!
    Then, I switched to Qian39, and the Midrange (vocals), and overall balance, is also impressive.
