post #841 of 1291

im getting channel imbalance through the loose headphone jack. using a bigger 3.5mm plug that has some weight is pretty much causing the unit to be unusable unless you want to sit and fiddle with the plug every 5 minutes. i definitely regret getting this through mp4nation since i have to ship worldwide to get this fixed. will not be purchasing another fiio product.

I think I'm in love, my first USB DAC purchase and I've never heard music so crisp and clear.. FLAC format on foobar2k wasapi output 24-bit/96000Hz (of course I only have a couple of albums in this format.) 

 

I too am having a little bit of channel imbalance only because of a recent modification I made to my HD 25-1 II (actually worked out fine), replaced original cable with stock 650 replacement (092885). The problem is it has 1/4" termination, so I needed an adapter. I'm afraid it might eventually effect the jack, so far tapping the adapter causes imbalance and static. Trying my best to find a decent price stock cable replacement that actually fits this headset, preferably the stock Sennheiser 81435. I've been searching around and I just can't seem to find any under $40 including shipping prices..

I have tried a few USB DAC/AMP, this little guy E 10 is a keeper.

Will the E10 change settings depending on what sample rate och bits per sample are playing at the moment? I don't feel like switching between different settings whenever a new album comes on in my playlist. Example, if I set it to 24bits at 96000Hz in the settings, will it force a 16bit 44100Hz track up to the higher setting? I don't really want that.

It can play up to 24/96, not always in 24/96.

Has anyone tried this with the ATH M50? If so, was there a significant change in the SQ? 

post #847 of 1291

Is the newest batch in stores yet? If we order now, can we expect revision 3?

For 80 dollars I think the E10 is worth a shot.  It should at the very least be cleaner and more dynamic than your laptop or PC's headphone out.  I would suggest waiting to buy the E10 a bit first, just until the newest batch(with the gold plated headphone out) is confirmed to be out.

Would E10 be enough to drive FA-011 to its full potential?

post #850 of 1291

Well, I was wondering if it will change the settings automatically or if I need to have it on 24/96 at all times in Windows sound settings.

post #851 of 1291

It's just like a regular sound card with 24/96 as the max sample rate. If you're asking about the shared mode, 24/44.1 is what I use because only a small sample of the audio I have is 96. I may even go to 16/44.1 today to see if it is better. Oops, it was already at 16/44.1.

 

Exclusive mode, like WASAPI in foobar, will "communicate" with the card and adjust sample rate accordingly to the source of the files.

Absolute full potential?  Maybe not, but it will get you a fair bit of the way there.

Am I the first person to have their E10 stolen? Going a bit spare at the moment.

 

Used mine as a Dac for a karaoke setup and my E10 has 'gone missing'.

I setup and disassembled everything so I'm fairly upset at the moment.

 

Why do people do this?

 

post #854 of 1291

I have another question about the E10, please .I do not want to spend more than I should for a USB/SPDIF converter. Would it be advisable to use the E10 as a USB/SPDIF converter or get something like the V link or Hi face converter?

 

I have collected enough music in the hard driver of my laptop and I want to use my laptop as music server which will connect to my integrated amp via Toslink or digital Coaxial.

Sure, you can use E10 as SPDIF converter but it only has coax, not toslink and limits to 24/96.. I feed it to HM801 from time to time.
