The Official Fiio E9 Thread with Video Unbox-Review - Page 39

post #571 of 751

My question is broadly related. How do you like the E9 out of an ipod classic and LOD? Do you like it more or less than using the E7 as a dac and E9?

post #572 of 751

Does anyone know if the E9 can accept an DC supply voltage above 15v?   I have a 8000mAH battery pack with a 19v output, and I'd love to be able to use it to power my E9 in a portable fashion.    If it has an internal voltage regulator, then it would work out.   Otherwise, I'd need to resort to regulating the voltage down externally.

if your source is an ipod, BEST sound is obtained using a LOD

if your source is a PC, BEST sound is obtained using E7 (or any other dac, or a really nice soundcard)

Quick Question: I got the L3 to go with the E9 but the L3 is really small. Does the cable quality matter if I'm getting an extension between the L3 and the E9? Is it ok to buy a cheap cable or is that the kind of thing that can affect quality? Thanks!

My vote is for Radio Shack.

No - really.

Has anyone seen that the E9 is now being sold with the option of the iPhone dock up top instead of the E7?

Does that mean it is interchangeable, or what?

is it worth it, or will an LOD be just as effective?

The dock is not interchangeable. The E9i for iPod/iPhone dock cannot be used with the E7 or any other FiiO DAC.

well that sucks. 

 

But surely the dock would be similar to using something like the L3 LOD to connect the iPod?

 

Also, the E9 is a solid state amp, not a tube amp right?

post #579 of 751

The E9 is solid state.  The iPod/Phone dock and an L3 will accomplish exactly the same thing - bypass the iPod amping section, but still use it's DAC.  The dock will simply give a more convenient form factor.  To bypass the iPod's DAC, you need something like an HRT iStreamer.

Jack- do you know where one could purchase an iPod dock for the E9? Thanks.

if your uk based, pjbox.co.uk has the E9i for the same price as a standard E9.

Unfortunately I'm in the US and already have the standard E9.

I checked and it said that the base for ipod/iphone 'must be bought seperately' meaning usability for standard E9 users. Concerning a shop that sells it (I've checked US and Non US), I'm not sure if Fiio have released it yet.

It's not a easy way to change the E9 into an E9i, FiiO thought about releasing a DIY kit but ultimately just decided to release the E9i as a separate product. So if you have a E9 already, my best recommendation is to get a L1 or L3 LOD cable and use it with the E9. If you don't ever plan on using a E7/E17 with the E9, then you can think about trading the E9 for a E9i.

Hey guys, I settled on a DT-880/600 and the E9/E7 combo but I can't really tell the difference between the high gain setting and about 10 o'clock on the volume knob and low gain with just before 12 o'clock. Any advice?
