Thanks, man! I truly appreciate that and I'm constantly trying to improve my reviews for you guys! :) I want to expand my video reviews with some "how-to" videos as I get a ton of help questions, and I have a really cool series of videos that I am toying with, called "Audio Trip", sort of a play on words, but it involves me going out to local audio events and venues and shooting a short film on the experience. Should be a lot of fun :)

 

Again, thanks for the warm comments!

It's a nice, thin setup with a ton of power, but it's not really practical for home use. Being out and about quite a bit, I needed to split up my home and portable set ups to get the best listening experience.
 



 

 


how is the arrow not suitable for home use?

so putting the portability aside and speaking strictly about sound, how does the E7+E9 compare to the arrow? it's extremely hard to find comparisons with the arrow ...

It blows away the E7, but you can't really compare it to the E9. The E9 has tons more power because it's a desktop amp. I'd take the E9 over the Arrow at home anyday...It's not practical for home use IMO because it doesn't have the power of a desktop amp, and no DAC...

ok thank you. i'll steer more towards the e7/e9 combo for my needs i guess.

how does the Fiio e7 pair up with lets say MD's, um3x or HD-25s? or M50s?

I have the AKG K702 which AFAIK are the same to drive as the K701. My E7 has no problem with the K702 via a LOD on my iPod.

 

The E7 is even better partnered with the E9.

Nice review. I picked up a used icon mobile and I'm loving it.

Anymore insight on the E7 vs T3?
