James, PLEASE tell me it has the power to drive Orthos like the HE-6 and LCD2 with copious amounts of power and I may just have to hold off on my Schiit  Lyr purchase and wait for the E15. biggrin.gif

Patience is a virtue. And you could use a virtue.

Please stick with the potentionmeter analog volume control is so much better than digital, i don't have a issue with the channel imbalance and i understand all analog pots will have it, but can't you reduce it by matching the left and right wipers better? , since the e9 has a gain switch and -90db 3.5mm jack i never have to have the volume so low where the channel imbalance is even with my 8ohm soundmagics. I don't understand why you can't cure the static noise though while all analog potentionmeter's have channel imbalance i've never come across 1 that makes a static noise when turning it like the 1 on the e9.

This is wise and appreciated.  The mini headphone jack on my new E9 has only been used a few times.  I tried the other night and couldn't get it to work with my Shure 535's.  I think a couple other folks have posted that it either doesn't work or is "finicky."

 

Another vote for sticking with the potentiometer.

There is no way E7+E9 combo can get 24bit/96k, isn't it?

This is the only disappointment I have for these two products.

post #561 of 752
no because the E7 is 16bit/48khz DAC, you have to wait for the new Dac that coming from fiio for 24bit/96khz that will work in the Fiio E9 top slot.

Sound quality is a lot about the synergy between headphone+DAC+source. In my opinion fiio has enough power to drive headphones like the k702 but the problem is the DAC only becomes useful when USB is in use, so for someone who doesn't have digital out from some of my devices the DAC can't really contribute to the synergy.

I'm actually having the opposite problem with my E9. My 3.5mm jack is working fine, but my 1/4" is having problems. I can't hear both channels correctly, the left sounds extremely distant and digital. I have tried it with my cheap DAC and with my J3. Anybody else have this problem? I just received in less than an hour ago, it was a little cold. Could that be a problem?

Hi guys, I just got my fiiO e9 amplifier. But I can't get any sound out of it. Right at the moment I'm using a ipod, but next week the cowon J3 will arrive. So could you guys tell me which cables I need to make it work?

I'm now using this cable:

 

HRCA.jpg

I plug the red and white audio cable in at the back of the fiiO e9, the 3.5mm jack I plug in my ipod.

Then I plug the power cable in and my headphone, but I don't hear anything..

Am I using the right cables? because when I search on the internet I see also this cable:

 

fiio-l1-lod-line-out-cable-for-ipod.jpg

 

do they plug the 3.5mm jack in the line-in (on the fiiO) ? (in stead of using the red/white audio cable)

If that's the solution, then my question is still what cable do I need for the cowon J3? (because the J3 has an other plug in than the ipod).

 

The back of the e9:

I hope you guys can help me.

 

I started also a thread with this problem but didn't get any response, I hope it's different in this more general thread.

You need a LOD for the ipod(your second picture), and a 3.5mm male to male for the J3. You can also use the 3/5mm male to male cable for your ipod too. The only input is the 3.5mm(and the USB). The red/white is an output.

so I have to plug in 2 cables into the ipod? (the LOD and a male to male) but that's for now, next week I'm gonna use the cowon J3, what cables do I need for that one? I expect the same male to male again? but what cable in stead of the LOD?

post #568 of 752

You can go rough for NOW and just plug in a 3.5mm male/male cable from the ipod's headphone jack to the E9's LINE IN (max out your volume on the Ipod, and adjust the volume with the E9). The Line in is the ONLY input on the E9 (other than the USB, which is for computers). At least until you get an ipod LOD, which will be noticeably better than doing the first method.

 

And no. The LOD HAS a 3.5mm male end which goes to the E9. That's all you need. You may want a 3.5mm extension cable, as LODs are a bit short, leaving your ipod close to the back of the E9, making it hard to use your ipod while connected to the E9.

 

Like right now. I use a Sansa Fuze with LOD cable with a 3.5mm extension cable to the E9's line in. The extension cable allows me to use my Fuze comfortably.

so if I'm correct:

 

for using the ipod: I only need the LOD cable OR the 3.5mm male to male cable.

 

for using the cowon J3 I only need the 3.5mm male to male cable (no other option if I understand correctly).

Hey guys, is there any word on a possible version of the E9 with docking of Apple devices anytime soon or should I just go for the current E9 with a Line-out dock cable for my iPhone and a pair of DT880s (600Ohms)?
