Thanks.   I've decided to go for the D1 now,  just about to place the order.     The E17 has a SPDIF input on the top of it. Someone has told me that this input is available and works whilst docked with E09K. So I wont be using a USB connection at all.   PC -----(PCI)----> Xonar D1 ----(SPDIF)----> E17 ----(Dock mechanism)----> E09K -----> Headphones   If the SPDIF to the E17 ends up not working, I will just switch to using the sound card when I'm...
Thanks for the summary STV014, cleared up allot.   Yes, Angel. The plan is to have the card plugged into the E17 constantly, for the sole purpose of having dolby headphone running through my system, and the software that goes with the card has sweetend the deal for me aswell. I also like the idea of having software with a decent equalizer.     So it looks like I have a choice between being able to accept a 5.1 or a 7.1 signal. And then wheather I want to use a...
Hello.   I'm about to buy one of the asus Xonar sound cards.   For my purposes all it will do is process a digital audio signal. It needs to output this  through SPDIF to my E17.     After almost of month of researching into these sound cards I don't really know what their differences are. I'll link you to a few of them, maybe you can tell me what their recomended uses are, and what benefits you get for venturing higher up the price range.     I see...
Hello.   I'm trying to buy an optical audio cable to carry a digital audio signal from my up-coming sound card to my external DAC.   I am a little unsure as to wheather I am looking at the correct cables, however I think I must be. When I look at the cable end, and then look at the hole it has to fit into, I am a little doubtful.   Here is the cable I am currently looking...
Wow, thanks pkgman   that's exactly what I needed to hear. I was assuming there was a solution similar to this.   I'll keep your post for reference for when I actually receive my FiiO bundle and sound card. I will add an optical SPDIF cable to my order.   I live in Africa and getting stuff imported out here is always a mission, so it's great to have the assurance that what I'm ordering will actually work.   I'll be adding a sound card and an optical cable...
Okay, so I realized I don't really understand S/PDIF.   You get this one, this is the one I was comfortable with, I've seen it on many of my things in the past and never really knew what it was until recently.       Then, you get this one.   Is the 1st one perhaps the standard output port, and the 2nd one the standard input port?       EDIT: so I just looked at my current sound card and I see it has a SPDIF port (presumably output) and it...
Is that S/PDIF input available while it is docked with the E09K though?   How would it be unnecessary? what is the other option, I am prepared to base my sound card purchase around that.  
Hello   I was hoping to have a sound card outputting a digital signal to my E17. I now see the FiiO E09K/E17 combo has no S/PDIF input.   is there any way to get a S/PDIF into the FiiO bundle, like an adapter or anything?   is there any way to get a USB signal out of my sound card? like have it outputting through my PC's USB ports?       The idea is to have the sound card processing a Dolby headphone (digital) signal and then output it to the the E17....
 Yes, that's exactly what it is, I've never been very keen on it apart from the pretty blue lights. I have never tried to enable any of the functions you say it has, when my stereo phones arrive I will take another long look at it, although in the long run I will be moving away from it.     Okay, I have tried 2 PSUs. But I have also had an issue where my PC shocks anyone that touches it (great fun at lans, but annoying now). So it's probably the same thing causing my...
Hello everyone.   I'm looking for someone with some time to read through my post and provide some feedback, any comments will be much appriciated, and should I be in the position to help you in return I will do so gladly.   Okay, here's some background.   Prompted by a friend I've been doing allot of reading about surround sound headphones and the various ways it's accomplished. I've been lucky enough to try 2 of the common flavors of surround sound...
