Sigh .... has done for me (clearly better than my netbook's onboard), and also has done for a lot of others.  Casey - there's no problems if it's not for you.  Sell it and move on.

if it's job was only to remove static then an amplifier fed through i lod would do the trick.

 

Not from a netbook - that static you're hearing is likely from the laptops onboard card.  The DAC portion of the E7 is cleaning that signal - whereas the LOD/amp from the ipod is still using the ipod's DAC.

 

You won't be able to simply go laptop > headphone out > amp and expect to eliminate the static.

ok i have an acer netbook and yes the fiio e7 sounds better then that but thats hardly a competition. my onboard conexant audio sounds amazing by comparison to my netbook. my netbook has realtek btw. i am keeping it because it does improve a few audio sources like my netbook. is it possible conexant audio is actually that good? i can't really say much about it changing my ipod when all it does is amplify the sound.

Casey - I can't comment on your conexant - I don't have one and haven't heard it.  You have to go with your own ears.  I have a P5Q Pro in my desktop - and I actually think the Realtek ALC1200 on my desktop is actually not too bad.  But I'm using the E7 there also - the difference is subtle - but to my ears audible.  The main reasons I got the E7 were [1] laptop, [2] portable - although that now replaced by E11 [3] desktop comb with E9 for when my higher end cans eventually materialise.

 

The reason the E7 was recommended to you originally was because you said you listened mainly out of your laptop and your iPod.  I didn't realise the desktop was your main source.

 

Anyway - the E7 does have a really good name out there.  Why don't you see if anyone on head-fi wants one, or you could trade for the grados you wanted.  No sense keeping something if it's not being used.  You have to do what makes YOU satisfied.
