Mad,

 

James just released the specs for the E18. It looks like it won't be anywhere near as powerful as the E12... but bit more powerful than the E17.

Change,
It's probably because of the BN, you know, that ok amp that gets 100 hours per charge because it doesn't output much power? A lot of headphones just don't need as much as the E12 can give, some of the big boys in the mid-fi arena can really make use of it, but to sell to the most consumers they probably need a device offering more time than power. Especially in a portable. Still, even though the E12 is a niche product, my pre-production sample even more so, I still love it. Maybe irrationally at this point, lol, but somehow it did respond better with the K712 than my tube amp, which surprised the heck outta me.

Ah, I see. I'm interested in it, still, if I can get it to work with my Nexus 7 2013. Its sq could really benefit from a nice self powered DAC

Personally out of the new devices that are supposed to be released over the next few months I'm most interested in the E19. Unfortunately there haven't been any official specs released. Just talk in the E18 thread about it being Fiio's flagship portable DAC/amp with an original estimate of December. But I don't think that'll be happening since the E18 was projected for July.

I've heard the E19 mentioned here and there... but that's it.
post #17076 of 26187
Only time I saw people type E19 was when they meant to say E18, and also by others who got excited by the people typing it by mistake. Gotta love it when a company announces a product, especially funny with a new flagship, and immediately (before said product is even released and available) people ask when the next big thing is coming out.

James from Fiio has mentioned it, but not in great detail. Just a couple things here and there. I guess we won't know more until the official announcement, whenever that may be.

Not being impressed by the MA900's soundstage, would make you certifiably insane. Yeah, better re-evaluate, since the MA900 has the largest soundstage, this side of AD700.

What headset/headphone should i use?

 

I play on xbox/ps3/pc and im looking for the perfect setup.

 

I thought about buying an dt990pro with a zalman mic and later buy the amp from the tritton720 or the one frmo the astros.

 

If i buy the tritton720 first, can i buy later the dt990pro and connect the mic and the headphone to the tritton amp?(i didnt find the connectors)

 

1.And the tritton720 with the amp will sound better than the dt990pro alone?

 

2.Should i buy the dt990pro first? or the tritton then the dt990pro?

 

3.Can i connect the dt990pro to the consoles without the amp from tritton/astro?

 

I cant get both at the same time, but i can buy one now and then another later.

 

But i can try find and buy the tritton control box(the axpro one will work with all the 3-pc-xbox-ps3?) + cables + dt990pro + zalman mic but i have no idea how to link the dt990pro+zalman mic on the tritton control box, which cable should i use?

 

Thanks!!!

 

any help here guys? =/

If your PC's motherboard comes with DDL (Dolby Digital Live)

then Get an Astro Mix-amp, plug the Astro into whatever your currently gaming with (PC or console), I believe the Astro can drive the DT990 Pro 250-Ohm headphones decently.

mine just come with: 

"

 

Intel® High Definition Audio subsystem in the following configuration:

10-channel (7.1+ 2 independent multi-streaming) audio subsystem using the Realtek ALC892* audio codec
Five analog audio ports and one optical S/PDIF out port
Internal S/PDIF header and front panel audio header

"

If i dont buy the astro mix-amp, the sound will still be better than the tritton 720?
And when i buy it will be 7.1 as the tritton is? i dont understand too much about that... but im reading...

Thanks for your answer!

Would help to know the make and model of the motherboard?

(for around $60, you can add a Asus Xonar DX or D1 sound card, comes with DDL)

Its a Intel DH67BL. A poor one i guess...

 

The idea, is not to use any aditional cards on pc because i want to use it on xbox360 and ps3 also(ill buy a mic if i buy a headphone).

But here where i live the mixamp from astro is rare(it will cost me almost the double to someone at USA), the tritton ones i can found easily and cheaper(even at ebay). 

 

I was reading all night, and i found plenty setups dt770pro + astro mixamp + zalman mic, if i buy the tritton ones to use on the consoles, where can i find the cable to use the control box from tritton on any headphone(i even dont know what headset output type comes from the tritton control box)? or it is just possible at the astro mixamp?

 

Thanks friend!

Hello.

 

I am using AD700 with Xonar D1 ( nothing special i know ). 

Positional audio with those two is tragic. Dolby Headphone makes everything mixed. Cant really tell from which direction i am hearing noise. 

 

After choosing only 8 chanel in Xonar drivers everything is much better. Still not very good but i can tell now which is right which is left. 

 

Dont want to be grump but i think that DH is overrated. I am buying Titanium HD to try something different. Maybe in the future i try to get STX for comparison.

Makes every mixed? What dos that even mean? If it doesn't give you comparable sound cues to the video I posted on the first page, something is wrong with your settings.
