[Impression] FiiO E10 - Page 79

post #1171 of 1291

Yes, I have that too, I guess the device doesn't allow it. You can use windows direct sound if you need to listen to it. Most music is in another format anyway.

"Unrecoverable playback error: Sample rate of 88200 Hz not supported by this device"

on Foobar through Fiio's own ASIO driver?
I still get that occasionally when I hit something 88.1 hz. Either sample down the track yourself or you can use the foobar plugin to resample as it's playing.

Seem to found two resamplers for Foobar, the PPHS one and SoX one. Which one is better? Or should I just resample it myself using Audacity?

I use Resampler PPHS and upsample to 96khz. It's always better to add empty bits than to take away actual data.

What is the correct drive ability (headphone impedance) of the E10?

 

In the specification tab of the product page it says 16~100ohm. The comparison tab of the product page says 16~150ohm.

 

The first post of this thread says 16~300ohm.

Holy cow, 79 page thread, I am new to the forums and just bought one of these (Fiio e10) to sit on my desk at work and will be looking for some mid priced headphones with which to pair it.

 

I am hoping to improve on the currently awful onboard sound from my PC / laptop.  It's definitely going to take me a while to work my way through this thread unless there is a synopsis!

 

Is there a preferred or 'most popular' match of headphones with the e10?

I see 16-300ohm on the main product page so there's your answer.

You should choose based on your sound and music preference. The majority of how it sounds is going to come from the hps itself, dac is at most 5% and you can eq some of the issues away.

I'm getting this constant buzzing noise when I'm not doing anything (i.e dead silence). This only happens when I use my PC for a long time and the noise will stop when I plug/unplug my DAC or headphone. I've tried using different USB ports as well as swapping headphones (I have AKG 701 and annie) however the noise is still there.

 

After skimming through this thread, it seems like the problem was caused by the USB cable. The stock cable that comes with the DAC is causing a lot of issues for some people. I'm not sure if this relates to my current problem but can anyone recommend me any good USB cable for my DAC? OR will something like this suffice?

It might not be the USB cable, but the OS itself. Windows 7 and 8 (and as far as I know some version of MacOS too) will reset the USB audio driver after a while of idle. The original purpose is to save power, but it has the side effect of causing the DAC to lose sync to the PC, and result in buzzing noise. The fix is to use a powered USB hub, since Windows can't reset its power and the DAC won't lose sync again.

It's not just idle. It also happens when I use the computer for a long period of time (such as gaming).

 

Isn't getting an USB hub same as just plugging straight into the desktop? Since I will have to plug the hub into desktop USB port.

I'll try out the cable first since it's a lot cheaper. If this dosen't work, I'll get a cheap hub and see how it goes.

 

With that being said, do you know any good brands that works well with DAC or should I just get any cable to test it out?

Are you using the E10 while gaming for audio? When Clie said "idle", he meant the E10 and not the computer itself.

It is but the power portion is being managed by the OS while an "external" hub that you plug into the wall itself isn't.

Yes, I'm using E10 for everything that I use on my PC.

 

So you want me to get the one that is powered via AC adapter? not those with just USB powered?

Yes, the USB hub must be AC (self) powered.

post #1185 of 1291

In all honesty the best way to eliminate the USB idle issue is to go inside the power management settings of Windows..pretty easy...  

What you're looking for is the Power Options in the Control Panel.... Also setting the drop-down menu to High Performance first, then modify the USB setting to 'Disabled'

 

(image attachment no working for me) lol ... lame!
