Okey, okey ;)
FiiO E9 is quite a cheap device, but this doesn't justify the observed fact of cheap sound (cheap like Technics), because this device pretends to be something special, some sort of bargain of buying good quality amp for a reasonable price, so I'm simply telling my version of truth. For me it's worth zero PLN, zero EURO, zero USD, because the sound is explicitly not acceptable to my ears, no matter what album is palyed (from Linux based PC, FLAC format is used).
I've mentioned before, that very simple A-class MOSFET buffer will be much better sounding solution. There is plenty of such kits. Simplicity is a clue, and FiiO E9 is far, far overcomplicated for no reason.
