Great device, flexible usage, nice looking

Posted

Pros: flexible usage, android integration, sound level and quality, size & weight

Cons: additional device (carry, charge)

Hi all,     Cost Clarification:    FIIO E18 on Amazon.fr: 159,00€    FIIO L9 Cable on Amazon.fr: 18,13€     TIP: 1st buy the E18, take it to the Phone shop, try the devices they sell.        Many modern high-end phones support it without extra software, BUT MANY DO NOT support Audio USB OTG!!        Check the list on the FIIO website + try on the phones you would consider.     Kit, so you know where I come from:    Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro 250 Ohm    AKG K551 38 Ohm    Pioneer DJE-2000 in-ear's      iPod Classic...

Introduction: FiiO has come a long way in recent years – quickly developing and releasing well-valued products – with its line of amps and DACs. Today, we have one of the newest additions to the FiiO family; the E18 Kunlun. FiiO’s Kunlun is designed as a computer and Android-device USB-DAC and portable-amplifier. At $160, can the E18 perform its duty?   Unit Build: There are a million ways to describe a FiiO – good sounding being a common one – but having a sexy build always is one of the first. The E18 uses the stealthy milled-aluminum look of the E12, in addition with a top control bar surrounded by a silver strip.   The silver strip, build-edges, and control-panel plate...
