Review: Fiio E7 - Page 32

post #466 of 543

Yes, great effort. I wonder whether a similar review exists for the E9 and/or E7/E9 combo?

I dunno, you could ask the guy who did that review.  He might be in the middle of doing it as we speak, or he might just need to get an E9 first.

Can u use the e7 as just a DAC from your computer if you already have an amp?

or do you have to use the e7's amp when using it as a usb dac?

LOL?

Are your production capabilities a joke?

post #472 of 543

Why would they be a joke?

 

Fiio certainly does not produce themselves but designs the circuitry, cases etc and then orders from various suppliers to produce following the Fiio specs. Suppliers don't like to produce a few hundred in one production run as machines have to be configured and changed etc. 

 

You always order them in batches of at least a few thousands. Until they are sold. You wouldn't have a huge storage of devices either as you have to pay for production upfront. 

 

This is very normal procedure. Really don't understand your post.

 

So long,

K

I think Leee was just frowning upon the use of "LOL" in feiao's post.

Just wondering.. 

 

now that I plan to 'retire' the e7 to purely on the desktop. Can I use one of the two headphone out's to send signal to a powered desktop speaker. Then the other output will serve as a normal headphone out.

 

I know that both outputs are amplified, but only slightly. It wont damage the speakers if used carefully but will this kinda setup actually be detrimental to the SQ???  ie crap music encodings be double amplified...

 

 

Also with getting the E7 LOD, they can be used as a DAC with line-level but while docked, will the headphone outputs at the top be functional??

Alright Sir!

 

Well then we are all a happy family :-)

 

Just received my E7, L3, E1 and a few other Fiio cables today!! Can't wait to put them on!

 

So long,

Ralf

If I hook up the fiio L7 line out dock with the e7 and then hookup my ipod touch 3rd gen will it bypass the ipods dac and use the e7 as a dac?  or will the e7 still be a amp only?

It will be a worthless combination.  Actually, I'm pretty sure the L7 covers up the line-in, does it not?  It's only so you can use it as a USB DAC and bypass the internal amp.  The only way to use it as a DAC for an iDevice is on the iPad with the camera connection kit.

i think im going to be the most controversial person here, and say that i dont really like the FiiO E7 even though it is my first DAC and Amp. I dont really need the amp because I have Westone UM3X and Sennheiser HD 598, but I really dont like it as a DAC. I prefer the sound from my Cowon S9 and my laptop sound card. I find the FiiO, even with the bass boost off, makes the bass a little too boomy for my ears.
