No. If you are talking about a line out dock you have to buy that separately. Amazon should have them for sale at a reasonable price. Look into the Fiio line out docks.

I see, thanks for the reply, a Fiio L3 should work?

Yeah that should work. But depending on how you will have the phone/ipod positioned you may want to consider the Fiio L9 as its design will help to alleviate stress on the cable and extend longevity.

finally delivered!!

 

been listening to it with my ipod, mostly comparing the crossfeed on/off.  so far i like it, tho with ER4s im finding the treble detail a bit much, but it may be that FiiO E5 w/bassboost was just obscuring everything.

 

i cant seem to make it work in USB DAC mode ...confused_face(1).gif

is it because it's still charging?  i must be missing something.  this is my first DAC ever so im not exacly sure how to install

it IS working!  seems to be a problem with foobar2k because youtube works fine [and sounds quite incredible now]

Odd. Mine works fine with Foobar. Did you make sure to set it under Preferences>Playback>Output>Device?

How does this fare vs the E17?

post #864 of 1074

If i might jump in, how does this compare to the various iBasso portables in the price range? ie D2+ boa, T3, T5, D-zero?

Although I haven't heard the above I can say the UHA-4 is in competition with the head stage arrow, Pico slim and TTVJ Slim. You get a lot of value for your money with the UHA4.

I should be receiving mine today (if not, tomorrow) and I will be able to get an earl impression against T3D, T5 and D-zero, plus a few others like E17, C421, etc.

Missed the delivery, I went to get it today from the post office. Listening to my aud 5x thru the UHA4 as I am typing this, I can't tell a difference in sound quality between this and straight from my iphone, only thing I could sense right now is a little tiny bit fuller, more impactful bass, and also played around with the cross feed, when cross feed is on, sound esp. vocal is no longer right in the face and is projected with a further distance, it kinda fades in the background and blends with the rest of the instruments, it makes the sound a bit more natural in my opinion, other than that, not hearing any technical improvement when driving my iems, but will keep listenning.......

You are describing the technical improvement yet you say you are not hearing any technical improvement.

If you think connecting amp/DAC to a source automatically send you to audio hearven and makes your current setup golden, then there is just too much wishful thinking. Improvement often comes in the form of refinement rather than revolution.

Plus an amp or DAC cannot transcend the capability of the transducer in question.
