Zapfiltered Zhaolu 2.5A - an oldie but goodie

    The Zhaolu came in two flavors - 2.5C and 2.5A. I prefer the 2.5A as the more musical version. YMMV.

    ripped out the head amp and analog section. It now houses separate PSU's for DAC and analog stage. upgraded the resistors on the zapfilter shunt PSU from 5W to 20W

    the 2.5A is balanced from the the DAC out, so are the zapfilter inputs. The zapfilter can handle both current and voltage out dacs - it was configured to match the AD1852 output

    added a USB-isolated XU208 board since I only listened from my PC

    Altogether now
