Already did, but it seems like numerous people that ordered the ele has this exact issue.  It's no biggie really cuz even in reverse channel everything sounds great. It makes you think you are listening to all your songs for the 1st time due to the "nuances" from the L/R. LoL 

 

Like I posted above, it can be easily solved with Media Player Classic and VLC, but the settings for VLC is only one song and not permanent for some strange reason. :(

Yeah everything sounds great even with the reversed channels, it's just a simple careless mistake from the people putting this thing together.  But then again it's expected that quality control for cheapos like this is not the best. Not really a deal breaker for sure, can be fixed in a jiffy.  Anyone out there that know how to mess with VLC Player "reverse stereo" settings please do inform.

I'd rather have a seperate amp to play with my other dacs. Can't do that with the fort.

How's the volume when hooked up to the S3?

 

My OTG cable will be another 2 weeks! Good to know it works on the S3.

My E6 is not a good fit for the ELE. The soundstage is gone. Researching a good portable amp to match the Ele.

Dsnuts has tried the ELE with FiiO E11 and he said they work well together ;)

Late to a party but here goes.

Can you compare the FX40 and FX101 to S400/500?

I know that iem comparisons to cans is kind of hard but I'm trying to decide which one to get since they're about $5 apart.

It's a bit louder than the headphone jack, about 2 or 3 clicks. Its got plenty of juice to drive the mh1 and lower cans & iem.

Let see S400/500 > FX40 > FX101?

 

I would skip FX101, FX3X clearly better SQ than FX101 not mention CNT series are quite impressive.

I have an s3 coming, but I'm wondering what the SQ difference is going to be like.  The s3 has a highly praised wolfson 24bit dac in it already and considering the ele is 16 bit I just wonder if I'm better off with the s3 and an amp.  Have you seen a marked improvement in sq, or just in volume?

 

Edit: I also know the wolfson dac has an eq on it so that manufacturers can produce a "house" sound, so it could also be that the samsung sound is too colored or bright or something as well...

Actually, the chipset depends on the model of the S3 you're getting. All US editions use a qualcomm chipset instead of the wolfson. I got the US ATT :(. I think the wolfson in the Internation S3 is the same as the one in the Fiio E10, WM8740. I would like to do a direct comparison of the E10 vs S3 US but E10 doesn't work in host mode. A/Bing with the E10 on PC with same tracks & volume level, the E10 is better than the S3 US qualcomm chip. There's more sparkle to the treble. S3's bass and mids are a little muddy and mushy. From my short time with the ELE via OTG, I'd say it's better than the qualcomm chipset as well but I'd want more time with the ELE before declaring a winner
