    Well, at least with the Walnut v2 that I've got, turning the Volume Control Clockwise = Volume Up, like all of my other audio equipment... :wink:

    On the Zishan units, Clockwise = Volume Down, which I consider backwards.
    To fix it, I'm going to have to remove the pot, cut and move some etches underneath it, and then reinstall the pot.

    The Z1 is significantly better than the the Walnut in every way. I have a Silmic modded Walnut and the Z1 un modded with the Muses opamp is significantly better. Again as stated earlier the V2s has had many problems, therefore it was never a consideration for me. Perhaps they figured it out, with all of the bugs everyone has found on their other units, and are going to make the V3 great. I wouldn't bank on it, but we'll have to wait and see.

    No, it's a new product.
    As date of today, they only selled one unit.

    I was very curious as they wouldn't tell me what DAC was in the unit or get me any specs. This is what they told me.

    "DAC and DSP are integrated together"

    This is CK Lewis by the way.

    my DAP before the 'Nut was my laptop and my iphones, so volume knobs are, as of now still, a novelty to me, and I learned very quickly that Walnut being such a loud DAP and its pot only need half a turn to reach 95% volume... I always check twice and turn the knob very slowly on everything with a volume knob (my Zishan DSD, Z1, A5, E11 etc) XD

    How can I engage the EQ in V2? Which buttons shall I press?
    Is the EQ any good in V2?

    V2s has EQ, V2 does not.

    With a k553 + alpha pads listening to coltrane in flac. Amazing. I think listening to old era music through the v2 is the trick imho IMG20170717175553.jpg

    Deciding to follow the bit of off topic silliness recently on the deals thread, I ordered the Tate & Bauer HD 900R which uses what they refer to as an Electrostatz driver. After swapping out the somewhat thin pads with much cushier ones, I'm very pleased to hear it pairs quite wonderfully with the V2S unmodded. It's not a naturally bassy headphone, having a balancing that's in line with may earbuds I've heard, and has worked really well with every song I've tried on the Nut so far. For under 150 for the setup after pads, I'm really pleased with the outcome.

    I fell for the same silliness and got the T&B HD 900R, listening to it now out of the Walnut V2, the "old" V2 without any cool features, sounds quite decent for the price. I did try to swap out the pads for some Shure SRH1540 pads I had, but I didn't like how it changed the sounds so I went back to the thin stock pads which are uncomfortable after some time but not terribly so to my ears for relatively short listening periods (30 mins or so).

    I can also see an amplification discrete output stage, may be a diamond buffer[​IMG]
