I'm sorry, umm, I think you might have misunderstood me. The "quoted question" about the S/PDIF connection was with sarcasm. I meant that something like that is simple and questions like that are what people seem to ask. That's good and well. I was trying to point out that it's much more difficult to know the answers to the kinds of inquiries I made previously and that help on matters like those would truly be helpful and appreciated.  If the wording was too involved and/or just confusing, I could try and make it very simple without all the fluff.  If it's a problem in understanding, please make it known so I could clarify; it's ok if that's the case.

 

Thanks again :D

Does the FiiO E17 have linux drivers? Is there any way to make it work with linux as a USB DAC?

It should work with most *nix Distro's as the E17 uses Class 1 Audio drivers.

Is Angstrom *nix? I'm getting a handheld that runs a modded version of Angstrom as its OS and if I can use the E17 with it it's a great alternative to a $600+ portable player.

Linux/*nix

 

As a DAC? It really depends on OTG support of the USB ports and software support along with how much the portable device will support....it really depends.....

 

It is REALY hard to know.

If it helps, the device in question is an Open Pandora. You might have heard of it. I'm getting both the Pandora and an E17 in the near future either way so I don't need a definitive answer.

 

Here's the unit, scroll down for the specifications:

It's hard to know especially with tablet / computer mixs

Meh. I'm gonna try either way. If it does or does not work I'll post it back here.

Yeah, the Pandora is a great device. It can have up to 128 GB of space via dual SD card slots and it has a line out and a USB HOST port. If I can get the E17 to work with it it would probably be possible to get an Algorhythm Solo to work with it too. And, it can run Foobar2000 using WINE. That right there would be a perfect audiophile-grade portable system.

The answer was the LO Bypass switch. I thought it's only function was with the E9/E09K as I saw once indicated. You guys obviously knew that and my confusion I think was about the fairly obvious. How else was I supposed to ask the question for it to be answered? I would rephrase the second part of my original query but what's the point if it won't even be answered. It's more than annoying that questions involving slightly more technical explanations aren't answered.

Is it possible to adjust the channel balance controls further than currently available in the firmware? At 10, you only get about 50% louder on either side. This might not be enough for some people, why is it not possible to adjust this further?

Because 50% is already huge, the channel balance on this is not to fix recordings thta have just sound comming from the left or right, it's for regular headphones and maybe IEM's. It is to help with uneven hearing some have, not fix the problem

Exactly, I have assymetrical ear canals and so I need this feature to give me more than just 50%. Its not such a big deal for full-size headphones but for IEMs, this feature is a must for me.

MY BOY! I have the same, but it's not extreme. It's a mild problem. Very small.
