ZO FS enclosures

ZO FS and ZO FS+ Shipping Updates

We know that some of you have been waiting for a couple months to receive your ZO, and we can’t thank you enough for being an early supporter and your patience during the longer than anticipated wait. For those of you who are wondering, we did find a glitch in the software related to the battery becoming completely discharged and not being able to turn ZO back on. The digiZoid team has worked through the issue, and it has been completely resolved. There were only a small number of ZOs shipped with this bug, and we have been reaching out to those customers for software updates. We did choose to delay shipments for a few days in order to make sure the software bug had been completely resolved. As of yesterday, we have resumed shipments. The number one question we get right now is, “when will I receive my ZO?” We have posted the estimated shipping schedule below, which we will keep updated.

Location ZO Version Order Placed Status
Domestic ZO FS Jun 14-29 Shipped
International ZO FS Jun 14-29 Shipped
Domestic ZO FS+ Jul 7 – Aug 3 Shipped
International ZO FS+ Jul 6 – Aug 4 Shipped
All Remaining Orders ZO FS & FS+ Shipped

 

If your order falls within the “All remaining orders” category in the table, we are waiting to receive enclosures from our manufacturer for those orders, and we will be shipping them out starting Sept 5th. We are very sorry for this additional delay. Again, thank you all very much for your continued support and patience.

Good Audio Specs don’t Guarantee Good Sound

Specs are a reasonable starting point for beginning a comparison between audio products, but they are only one piece of the puzzle. Consider all of your wants, needs, and desires, and correspondingly the relevant factors associated with a given product, then obtain as much information as feasible before making a decision. Not being impetuous might save you regret, frustration, and money, not to mention ending up with a product that looks good on paper but in the end only looks good on paper. Personally, we’ve sampled, tested, and listened to thousands of audio components. To construct an audio product based on component specs alone does not guarantee good quality sound. It’s not only about specs, but component values, materials, construction, compatibility, and proper integration. That’s what makes the difference.
