    What do youean by hold, you mean like lock or pause, if your worried about buttons being press, I just made a leather case for mine and problem solved, or you could by another player
     
  2. simko
    Yes exactly i meant to lock the buttons when it is in my pocket. good idea about leather case, any chance i could see a photo of yours?
    if that doesnt work, i might start researching a similar player, although may search for something with a screen or some kind of display (unsure of walnut v3 though).
    thanks

    Sure, if you do get another player, and you want to keep the diy possibilities, I can fully suggest the zishan z3 but I read allot of people have problems with Walnut v3 ( I almost bought it too)
    Here's a pic 15378764210274615354253414980110.jpg

    Thanks for the picture, im going to look through my scrap leather and see if i have anything large enough to make a case.
    To be honest, read the initial part of the walnut v2 thread and chose it because it was cheap, seems to be of good quality, and that is it. I dont have the discerning ear that a lot of people on this site seem to have, i listen to podcasts and music using cheap earbuds such as the magnetic ones from amazon, cheap phillips brand earbuds from discount stores (winners, marshalls) and some cheap iems that i bought from aliexpress. I'm not exactly sure what kind of DIY mods people are doing to the walnut, i would love to learn about that but not sure where a beginner can start learning about those mods. I don't even know if i would benefit from those mods

    Anyone know if there were ever any firmware updates for this? My walnut is the 3 button version if it matters.

    I use NX1 with V2S and they work much better for low impedance IEMs.

    No hiss when you use the NX1 through V2S?

    what if i use V2S with my laptop. will I hear hiss when using low impedence IEM?

    Normal hiss. No serious. I didn't try V2S as amplifier for laptop. But I try it for certain DAC and It's fine. I don't use it for its high Z impedance.

    I plan to use it as a dac/amp from my laptop, will there be a problem?

    I use my V2s mainly as an amp for my laptop and can say I have no problems at all - its excellent IMO. It sounds great, no issues at all. I do use Equalizer APO and Foobar as well on my laptop. FYI, the V2s actually functions in two ways when used with a computer/laptop. Option 1. Using the line input (3.5mm lead from laptop to V2s). Option 2. As a sound card (overriding the laptop sound card) via the USB cable provided. Option 1 works best, perfect. Option 2 'crackles and pops' intermittently which spoils the sound. Using option 2, it charges and acts as a sound card simultaneously - it downloads a driver first time you connect it. I find option 1 the best choice for my laptop. I use Superlux HD668B and Philips SHE3590BK.

    I just got a Zishan Z2, is it normal to observe some delay when watching video/movies from my laptop?

    Made a Walnut with ROE EK series audio caps, Rubycon ZL filter cap, AD825 opamp and Alps potentiometer.
