It is fun i guess for testing purposes but i am really satisfied with the bass just from the amp itself...i don't need to boost it.
16/48 reocording quality, it refers to .flacs.
Here's a nice quote from an article that explains it well

Bit Depth refers to the number of bits you have to capture audio. The easiest way to envision this is as a series of levels, that audio energy can be sliced at any given moment in time. With 16 bit audio, there are 65,536 possible levels. With every bit of greater resolution, the number of levels double. By the time we get to 24 bit, we actually have 16,777,216 levels. Remember we are talking about a slice of audio frozen in a single moment of time.
Now lets add our friend Time into the picture. That's where we get into the Sample Rate.
The sample rate is the number of times your audio is measured (sampled) per second. So at the red book standard for CDs, the sample rate is 44.1 kHz or 44,100 slices every second. So what is the 96khz sample rate? You guessed it. It's 96,000 slices of audio sampled each second.
Basically what it means is the higher the recording the better it sounds, and this is because there is more of the audio captured or avalibe to be reproduced and there is more room for the audio to be reproduced, matchmatically speaking, meaning the little details come out more in 16bit and even more so in 24bit audio, as opposed to 320kbs .mp3
but with refrance to the bloated bass it could be the amp, my Fiio E6 is REALLY muddy, I never knew that till I plugged in my cMoy, man that cMoy has SO much more detail and clarity than the Fiio, it may be the same with the E10... and for me the real issue I'm having is I like the impact the Fiio brings but not the mud...
Here read over this as I update it

So it might be that the Amp is making things muddier than you'd like them, and personally... I'd rather have the deatail than the impact
