    Good review. The outcome frankly does not surprise me. Already guessed DAC Z8 would be great value for money.
    Would be nice to compare it with Neo Alpha (and Neo ).

    I received my Z-8 today with fantastic service from in the UK.
    Very happy and impressed so far!
    Replacing an already very good Grace M9xx from ca. 2016, there isn't a massive step up, but I am confident that it sounds better with more detail.
    As reported by others, the build quality is superb and the UI is great.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes I too agree that this is a very good piece of kit. I'm coming from a Gustard X-16 and the Z8 is a step up, most definately.

    Question to owners. Do the VU-meters work with DSD output?

    Good to hear. They don't with all Neo models.

    Yes they do. As a few members have already said bigger ones would be great - especially for me as I sit appx 3 meters away when listening to my music. Are you thinking of getting one @Nice Monkey ?

    The EverSolo app is pretty good too to control everything via your tablet or phone :)

    Definitely not but a DMP-08 could be a tempting product (e.g. 6 inch OLED). ;)
    Obviously it is not even being announced yet (just the DMP-06) . :D

    Hi @rozel

    While late to the party and not a Harmony solution. I find it very convenient to use the EverSolo App in the App Store.

    The app gives you complete control over all the settings and some additional information screens. The source in page gives you the bitstream data in realtime. So if you have a iPad or iPhone the app is a good substitute for lack of Harmony integration. I use the Harmony System and soon both of us will be seeking a new universal remote solution. Have a great day @rozel

    Hello everybody,
    I've recently acquired the Z6 and it's a nice piece of engineering, especially from a cost/quality point of view. I was curious about one thing, though - while i am aware that the DAC has the least impact on sound quality, would it be possible if you'd either create a more warm sounding filter or create a custom one, which we could tailor and modify to our own liking?(obviously, with limited but significant input, as we wouldn't want to alter the sound signature TOO much). Could that be done in, say, a future firmware update? I'm asking this because i'm trying to tame a pair of Arya SE and i don't want to go down the route of R2R DACs (already owning a tube amp with NOS tubes which are considered warm).
    Thank you!

    would this be aan actual option to be released, or is it wishful thinking?
    I might be tempted to get a DMP6, but would for sure wait for the 8

    dealbreaker at the moment actually is no headphones output.

    It just my 2 cents not based on anything tangible nor based on information from Zidoo :rolleyes:

    But indeed off-topic here.

    Dear All,
    I have an EverSolo DAC Z8 what I liked very much.
    But now, I can't power on it.
    I think it has the last firmware, so it can't be the cause of the problem, what reported above.
    I bought it from France in last autumn, so it is still under warranty.
    I'm afraid that it's fuse really blown, can't switch it on, no matter how i try.
    By the way, it happened after short power failure, while it played music.
    Another observation, if I measure resistance at the power inlet, if power switch is off, it has infinite resistance obviously.
    But with power on, it has about 3.3 MOhm, it is too much I think.
    If it is because of the blown fuse, I can change it, I have also solved more complicated problems.
    But I think, I can't do anything more than this, with this equipment.
    And I could lose the warranty too.
    So what can I do?
    Many thanks in advance!

    I think your only option is to ship it in under warranty for a repair / replacement...

    I reported my problem on this website on Sunday:
    No answer yet.
    Maybe it shouldn't have been done here?
