It can drive, but I think Studio 100 need more power to it is best performance.

I use FiiO A1 with these speaker

  • NHT super one
  • Wharfedale Diamond 9.3
  • Inter Audio
  • BOSE 101
  • ELAC FS58
  • Klipsch F3

 

I'm really love its sound, nice performance ...

well here is my other question

the output power on the A1 says 14Wx2 so exactly how much power it is pumping out? 28W or just 14W???

is there any way i can make it pump out more power?

also how would u rate the A1 in terms of powering the Studio 100s? like in percentage? 50? 80? 100?

I hope that in the future they would make something more powerful but keeping it in the same form factor! 

 

looks like u have lots of speakers there sunny!
do u use bi-wiring for any of those speakers?

Anyways got another couple of questions!

first of all whenever i turn on the A1 on, is it normal to hear a "pop" sound coming from the speakers?

that popping noise is quite loud too

 

secondly if i switch back and forth between the headphone and the speakers

do i just unplug it from the headphone jack? it seems like when i plug it to my E9 to listen to my headphones, and when i want to switch back to the speakers with the A1

it either takes a long time to switch over or it doesnt switch at all

some body help me please!

thanks!

 

PS. it seems like i need to jiggle a little in the headphone jack before i unplug the headphone, in order to let E9 know that i have unplugged the headphone so it will allow audio signal switch back to going to the A1.

A1 will output 14W to each channel, so the total is 28W, but it is rated power, not peak power.  

 

I have not test the studio with A1, and it can not decided by the specification only, but it will be better to say not otherwise you found it can not satisfy you.

You can calculate volume here http://myhometheater.homestead.com/splcalculator.html , the a1 will drive them to a max of around 100db
