Amping the HD650 with the Fiio e7 - Page 2

post #16 of 22

I agree, especially from reading up on the A/B comparison thread. Like I mentioned before, I'm willing to bet the differences are mostly based off the amps own sound signatures and not how well the headphones are being driven (talking about the ones known to capably handle hard to drive headphones.)

 

In case of transparent amps, the differences are even harder to discern, to the point where once a headphone is fully driven, there's gonna be very little gain by going from one amp to another.

 

But of course, I don't own $2000 amps (nor will I EVER). I'd rather spend that money on headphone with different sound signatures, instead of trying to improve a headphone by 2% for $1000 more.

should have gotten an e9 to go with your e7. sending them back already was a premature decision IMO.

I'm planning on a Lyr so that I won't have to worry much about whether the cans are properly driven - and can then focus just on the different sound signatures of different cans from different companies.

Can someone explain to me why the E7 is good to have with the E9.  I have looked around and can't find it anywhere.

The E7 docks onto the E9.  It gives you the DAC of the E7, which is the main point of the E7.  It has quite a good DAC.  Then provides the excellent power of the E9.  Many say its a $600+ kit for under 200 bucks, From Micca that is.

 

 

PS:  I haven't read the post, but for the Subject matter.  From what FiiO has stated on these forums, the E11 will be Dynamic!

So that means if you don't attach the E7, the only way to connect to the E9 amp is through a 3.5" chord directly from the source, aka USB is not an option with only the E9?

Yes he USB connection is to have the E9 operate as a USB DAC through the E7.

No drivers necessary. cool.gif
