FiiO E6 - story of the tiny amp continues... (w/ review on 1st page) - Page 16

post #226 of 543

Only if you use a line out dock. If you use it directly from the headphone jack, you might as well try to spray cologne on a turd...get what I mean? Or you could just double the E6 money and buy a sansa clip+

@ClieOS will my shure se315 benefit from e6? I am planning to buy e6 if it makes a difference. Are there any interferences on itouch 4g (background noise or hiss)? Thanks!

iTouch? Or do you mean iPhone (which will more of an issue since it is a cellphone)? I won't imagine it will be much of a problem from iPod Touch but I don't really own any iPhone or iPod Touch. I can only tell you EMI is minimum on my Samsung Galaxy Ace. I won't say SE315 will benefit a lot by amping simply based on spec but I don't own one either.

has anyone tried this with the line out from a SFlo2 or Teclast DAP?

 

im just wondering if the E6 is suitable enough for it.

With S:flo2, you really don't need a small amp like E6. What you will want is something better, E11 for the least.

Do the improvements justify an upgrade from the E5 if I'm using it with the SE215s? Source is a MacBook Pro, nothing special.

Yes, IMO.

Would the E6 be beneficial in these setups?

You are probably get more out from the EQ than on the increase in output power. I'll say RE262 will likely see the most change.

Depends on what the output impedance of the iPod is.

I got my E6 last night. The EQ2 setting is just the kick in the nuts that my Zune HD needed.wink_face.gif

They will never provide it even when it takes 1 minute to measure and calculate. I measured one the other day being the HTC Desire Z and that output impedance was a whooping 64 ohms; a reason why IEMs sound horrible on a lot of smartphones.
