I finally got a Zero back in the loop here. Sure beats the hell outta the headphone out on the Z-5500's lol. I got this one new from Lawrence upgraded with LT1364's, ALPS vol. POT., and Earth HDAM module. Sounds pretty good so far, well I should say it's showing the true quality of my music collection haha.

Here are a few pics if anyone cares.

that's the worst place/way ever to mount that discrete op-amp... and that doesn't look like an alps pot... and the shaft needs to be trimmed, or a new knob purchased.

This is the proper way to install them

Upon further inspection it is an ALPS RK163 Series 16mm metal shaft 100K potentiometer. If it's not, then it is a damn good knock off, without much to gain. The 25mm shaft will be cut in a little bit. I also took a quick look at other possible mounting locations inside the enclosure. If it is placed behind the power jack, it will most likely interfere with cooling. I don't think mounting it between the semiconductors is a good idea, not to mention it will still interfere with the cooling of the unit there as well. I could probably wrap the entire module to prevent any shorts, (heat shrink the whole thing) shorten the wires to possibly reduce wire resistances, and simply let it sit on some of the caps/resistors.

These are the only other pics I have seen of the modules installed in the zeros. I'm thinking the use of the longer extensions are due to the sheer size of them compared to the zero? I don't think personally I would have put it that close to the trans. but he prolly has his extensions pre cut and that.

I went ahead and cut the shaft with a thin metal disc on the Dremel. Went back and cleaned up the cut with a needle file. I had to round out some of the plastic in the dial as well and I didn't dare cut much more than I did, but I think it turned out decent enough.

At least shorten the leads to the module. And you I don't know why they used two sockets, one to solder the module to and the other for the adapter. Yes, it would just be easier to install, but a waste and extra connections.

Nice Setup

I also have the Arietta with my MS-2s

The DT880s arnt easy to drive how does the Arietta handle them !

I can see by how far the Volume Knob has been turned up.
