E11, a new start of FiiO's portable amp ( added some real photo ) - Page 88

post #1306 of 1326

I just decided to order the E11 to go with my on-the-way AH-D7000's. I also have an E7 coming too, but I will likely put that aside until I can get an E9 and use that at home. I may do a bit of testing to see if I can even notice the difference between the E7 and E11 and post my thoughts here if anyone cares. I am NOT an audiophile (or at least my ears aren't), so my views might be somewhat useful to the unwashed masses.

Can someone please tell me if the following configuration is workable?  Keep in mind that this is a temporary solution while I wait for my m-stage amp to be delivered, and yes I realize it's far from ideal.

 

iMac > (usb) > HRT Music Streamer II > (RCA/3.5mm cable) > E11 > M50/HD650

 

Are there any concerns about pairing up the HRT with the E11?

Will using an RCA-->3.5mm cable introduce additional loss of SQ? (never used this type of cable before)

 

 Thanks.

I got a pair of HFI 780s the other day, and I've been looking for an amp to use with my Samsung Galaxy S2 as just default they sound dreadful... I was hopeful that it'd be a simple case of buy an E11 > Better Sound but after some digging I found out that won't actually do much... so I decided to buy an E11 + a Sansa Clip+ in the hopes this will give me better SQ from the HFI 780s, as from Xbox > Mixamp > HFI 780s (5.1 disabled) they sound brilliant... besides the hiss.

 

Basically, anyone got any experience using an E11 + a clip+, and if it gives out good SQ. Any first hand experience with this setup and the HFI 780s would be even better.

 

I've learnt so much since getting active/interested in this place and headphones in general, and also learned that it isn't cheap! haha.

How long does the E11's battery last on a single charge?

Thanks, I probably should have read your review first. :P

 

Can I use any BL-5B battery as a backup?

Ipod Lossless>Fiio E11> Audio Technica ATH-M50

 

Will the Fiio result in better SQ? (Not just volume)

Yes I believe it will. I own an E11 it tends to keep everything natural true to the source, especially with no EQ. You'll notice a big step up in sound quality giving your over all signature more body. Everything feels too laid back un-amped for me. Maybe 2/3 of what I require. Amping solves this problem bringing my headphones to life.
