[Impression] FiiO E10 - Page 71

post #1051 of 1299
Got my E10 today from Adorama as well. So good with my AD700's and COPs.

The volume pot of my Fiio E10 started making crackling noises so I contacted Fiio and they offered to send me a replacement pot for me to install on my own.

The only problem is no matter what I tried I couldn't take the PCB out of the chassis. I only managed to open the back cover.

Does anyone have any idea how to extract the Fiio E10 PCB so I can replace the pot?

 

I have the latest E10 revision. It doesn't have the screw on the bottom to hold the PCB in place.

I'm about to purchase one of these.. and I too would be interested in the ease of disassembling the e10 if I ever had to replace anything?

Is the fiio e10 a dark sound signature? I wouldnt like it if it would add treble to my Sennheiser HD 598.

I have crackling noises on my laptop too but there is no crackling on my gf's laptop. When I choose 32000 kHz, crackling is gone, when I choose greater frequency on bit depth... crackling increases and sounds make slower. Looks like my laptop is too slow to decode musical signals (actually I have 2 core AMD with 2.1 MHz).

Yes.

I dunno how, but my issue is gone. Maybe I disabled my x-fi soundcard

Could you reproduce this bug to understand the cause of it?

post #1059 of 1299

Or, I am thinking about Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional as well, is it worth the money?

 

Thanks for help.

I know I'm probably late since this post was 3 weeks ago, but do NOT buy the FiiO E10 if your planning on gaming.

 

I have to constantly switch to my Xonar DG before I start gaming if I want to hear the difference between Left/Right or any positional sounds in general.

 

CS:GO + E10 = No idea where enemies are coming from

CS:GO + Xonar DG = Amazing positioning, almost pin-point.

 

The E10 is not made with gaming in mind. Music is awesome on it though.

Do you have any recommendations for a USB card/DAC to pair with AD700's then? I have an ITX system, so I cannot get a Xonar DG.

Are you using the soundcard without any of the virtual surround things enabled?

And is the HT Omega Claro+ a good enough soundcard for gaming?

I just got mine a few hours ago. Pretty good. I really needed a DAC; my sound cards are really mediocre. It makes a world of difference, specially with IEMs when it comes to sound quality. The bass boost isn't as bloated as I feared and I have been using it constantly. Pretty good investment. I'm currently building a hybrid desktop amplifier based on the basic framework of the starving student amp; I hope they end up being a good pair. It doesn't sound so good with the other pure solid state amplifiers I've built. I have no clipping problems...yet. Lets see how it goes. 

 

Oh...wow, and it actually makes the klipsch S4 more tolerable.
