[Impression] FiiO E10 - Page 81

post #1201 of 1302

Hi, first post here.

 

After reading this forum for quite some time I finally decided to go with the Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro with the FiiO e10 for my desktop. The sound of these is simply amazing, so thanks for your helpful posts! regular_smile%20.gif

 

But there is one problem that was already mentioned. The e10 seems to go into idle when nothing is playing, so there's a delay of a few split seconds before you can hear the sound. I find it most noticeable with the windows sounds (the sound for changing directories in the explorer is completely gone). Also, for example if you listen to the Mario theme on youtube, it's extremely choppy. But if I have music on while doing something, everything is perfectly fine. I already tried disabling the option for usb idle in the energy options, that didn't help.

 

So my main question is: Would a powered usb hub fix the problem? Or is there no way to fix it

Nice, I have the same "rig"! Had you tried conecting it to a 3.0 Usb?

Yes, I tried every port on my PC, it's the always exactly the same.

Try this:

 

Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Device Manager - Universal Serial Bus Controllers

 

Look for 'USB Root Hub' right click and Properties

 

Select 'Power Management' tab

 

Uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'

 

You need to do this for all hubs if more than one appear.

I checked it, but this option you mentioned was already disabled for every single hub, so still no luck. I guess my only option at this point is buying a self powered hub. I just hope it actually fixes my problem.

How about an RMA?

 

Maybe the dac itself is at fault?

post #1207 of 1302

Is there a DAC/AMP out there that is better then the Fiio E10 for around 200$?

post #1208 of 1302

Great review- thanks for all the hard work!

 

Mine should be here Wednesday.  Just looking to power iGrados and Sennheiser PX-100II's out of our PC's.  Looking forward to my fist Fiio experience.

Help needed!!!

 

The Fiio E10 has four 100uf electrolytic smd caps on its circuit board. Can anyone please tell me what each leg of those caps is connected to?

 

If anyone has the schematics for the E10 it will be extremely helpful too.

Hey, I was thinking about buying the Fiio E10 for my Logitech UE 600's. Fiio has 16ohm ~ 300ohm headphone impedance range but my UE 600's have 13ohm impedance. Will this cause problems?

post #1211 of 1302

how much hiss do you get out of this with sensitive iems(meelec a161p)? or something like a brainwavz hm5?

post #1212 of 1302

I have UE 700s and there is some hiss with those. But it's tolerable for me. I have PortaPros and Bose AE2s that don't really his with the E10.

Hi,

 

Is this normal when I set bitrate at 24bit/96000hz all sounds starts somehow "fading in" or something... I really can't explain, it's like a lag. But when it's on 16 bit, everything's fine. Should I be worried? I'm a total noob, I know. Just want to make sure if everything's ok.

 

And WTH is this??!:

It was ticked only on 48khz when I first plugged in, so I left it. (it lets you tick the other ones too)

I am considering a Fiio E10 was wondering how it is with the PX100ii's?

Is your model the newest revision (with "Olympus" on the case)? I was thinking of picking one of these up, since discussion earlier in this thread made it sound like the delay issue had been resolved with v3, but now I'm worried that the issue is still present even on the latest version. Can anyone else with a recent purchase of the newest version chime in on the delay effect?
