FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 169

post #2521 of 6572

I supposed fortitude has answered my last lingering question about actual delivery date. Given that the confirmation of the 5th was merely a notice out to fedex, and the fact that MP4 Nation will not return to work until the 10th (afterwork, 9th in N. America), the earliest ETA could be said to be 12th or 13th of April.

Exactly why there is a level of increased anxiety among MP4nation customers. My shipping tag was created 4/3 and the item will basically sit idle in a backroom for about a week before even being picked up. Like a previous poster said, with these additional delays the 'free fed-ex' shipping was wasted and should have gotten the free IEMs instead.

fortitude is right. FedEx has been rendered moot. Delivery time critical was the real reason for using FedEx delivery in the first place...

 

In the interest of full disclosure, I wanted this thing before the 11th because I have to fly off to Europe on the 12th... and made that preorder at the end of February thinking just that. What wishful thinking I have. 

 

I suppose I do feel frustrated. I am getting quite selfish here. Sigh. 

 

Going back on topic. Has anyone managed to use Cyanogen 7 or 9, or use any other Android device with E17 yet? I know of the Archos as the only case where there's USB Audio support.

I got an email from Fed Ex that it was shipped yesterday and scheduled delivery date is tomorrow.   Seem fast but we will see.   I pre-ordered not being in a rush about getting it.  So the delay is no big deal to me.  Looking forward to checking it out.

I live in the UK and just want to give a big thumbs up for hifiheadphones, ordered yesterday on the standard postage and received my E17 today!

post #2526 of 6572

Few more days with E17 and find it more clear and clean then Realtek on Del XPS. On low vol, I was hardly able to notice first 8 sec of this song , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gync3Z36RE with E17 it is very clear.

I am big fan of EQ and track this thread closely, http://www.head-fi.org/t/413900/how-to-equalize-your-headphones-a-tutorial. With E17 I do not get any EQ, other than ineffective FooBar’s one, EQ by Realtek was very effective but do not work for E17.

 

Any suggestion on EQ with E17.

post #2527 of 6572

Are you using the built in equalizer in Foobar? Why not consider using a different parametric equalizer, such as ElectriQ?

post #2528 of 6572

Thanks, ElectriaQ lead me to this thread will check it now

Huh, what Archos?? *peaks ears*

post #2533 of 6572

Refer to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1539576 for the whole low-down on usbaudio.c and how that there's already Android devices that can work with USB DAC.

Note the mentioning of Archos G9 and how that it can work with E17 and a Logitech USB speaker.

 

http://www.jbmm.fr/2012/01/utiliser-le-dac-fiio-e17-avec-son-archos/ is a French blog post that shows Firmware 3.2.77 for the aforementioned Archos G9 working with E17. Archos 70b IT would apparently work in auxiliary, if I am reading this post right. The French poster further clarified on XDA that he's currently running 4.0.5 on 80G9 ES2.1 and 101G9 ES2.2, as well as Archos 10" 250 go.

Damn, a tablet. If it had been a pmp I might have jumped for my portable rig. *sigh*

E 17 + portable USB source would prolly be all the portable SQ I could ever want. If not, I'll get an E11 to stack it fully :-P

post #2535 of 6572

That, or any phone that's running Cyanogenmod 7/9... I think Nexus S, Nexus One...
