I hope Walnut stays in the dap game. It seems to me the only differentiator between walnut and zishan is the ability to used a dedicated dac chip.
Maybe walnut should just find the guy who knows the guy and sign a contract with you know so that can happen.

Maybe the class a amp guy and dedicated dac guy and walnut should get together for lunch one of these days.

Love both the Walnut and Zishan players and still haven't decided which I prefer (or if it matters!) Just ordered the Walnut amp and the Bluebird M1 player/amp, to have a play with :). Oh and a Shanling M2S. And a Ruizu A50. I need to stop doing this, I have plenty players and amps now.

Your wish has been granted

May seem silly, but I'm enjoying the ZMF Ori on the V2S. I know there's no way it's pushing it to it's full potential, but it's still damn fun to listen to. SUCH a strange little dap.

Hi guys i've just received a Walnut V2 from a headfier but i wish to use mainly as a amplifier. However the volume knob only have two positions..."whispering in your ear until you fall asleep" and "im gonna blow this huge f**** load on your ears until you reach the moon".

There is any chance on changing the volume pot or adding something that will allow me to change the volume gradually?

I had to use an ifi ieMatch to help with that. Otherwise it's oddly better suited for planars.

Add some resistors between opamp's terminals 1-2 and 6-7 to reduce opamp's gain.

I initially got a bunch of values between 15kOhm and 5k and would put them into the socket like on the photo below (it's F1 but it's almost the same circuit), until I could get a good range from the volume pot:



Then soldered the winner (12kOhm) in:

Hello,
I am looking to use Walnut V2s as an amplifier with my phone. Can anybody please tell me if there is any interference issue from the phone RF ? Any cracking or hissing noise ? Is there a RF shield in place ?
