FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 231

post #3451 of 6536

Are they going to offer a case for the Fiio E17? I wanted to use the dual lock, but not on the bare E17.

i use dual lock on E17 and a lot of other stuff.  both normal and low profile dual lock...  it comes off easily enough and doesn't; take off the paint or anything with it.

From the manual:

- Red = Charging

- Blue = On

- Purple = On & Charging

 

Somewhere up in those 1000s of posts in this thread, a FiiO employee said the E17 draws 150 mA even with USB charging off.  I think most USB ports are limited to 500 mA.  If you've got an unpowered hub or splitter, etc. it may be less.  I don't know your setup, but it sounds like you may not be able to charge and use the unit simultaneously.  However, it shouldn't drain while connected.

Does anyone know if the E17 picks up interference from something like an Iphone4? 

post #3456 of 6536

I personally have at least 15 hours of use with my iphone 4 and i have NOT detected  any interference with wifi and data enabled.... However, i have read a couple posts of people that do experience interference...

I had the same reservations before putting the velcro on my E17, but the adhesive does come off easily with out hurting the E17 if you choose to do so. IDK if u seen the mod i did, but there are photos in my profile if u want to check it out.

 

In the end, having the velcro on the E17, for me, is not a big deal at all. Its either in its case, sitting on its butt, or attached to my iphone. I never realized how important the fuggin E17 was going to be. I use it every single day. I take it everywhere i go!

whoa.. just noticed my E17 wasn't charging via usb cable in a wall USB adapter....  It started charging when I turned ON the USB Charge in the menu.

 

Had the battery been completely dead, I would have been unable to power or charge my unit???

 

Or perhaps find a different USB wall charger or normal miniUSB charger.......

I know I remember reading that when E17 dies due to dead batt, The USB Charge will be will be turned ON automatically. Haven't tried it though.

very good.  In my experience, they don't open up as much soundstage wise as other amps for some odd reason.  even less powerful amps.   but just my opinion...

Yeah i think my usb port doesnt provide as much power as the unit sucks up while in use.

Another FAQ that I can't find due to the very long thread: Why should I use the L9 connector when using IPod when I can use the L8 or standard 3.5mm connector that is included? Thanks!

 

Edit: found it! just few pages back. So that I can bypass the amp of the ipod. cool! lol

iPods with L3 or L9 can bypass ipods non audiophile amp and internal eadphone jack corcuitry allowing for a very clean signal to go to only one external audiophile one(or more)
post #3465 of 6536
There have been some mishaps with what happens when battery runs out. Sometimes Ive talked to users that had charging off and it did t charge or anything. The end solution for them was plugging it in somewhere else or into a wall charger fixed the problem.

Yes L9 bypasses the "non audiophile parts and headphone circuitry" of the iPod and sends a clean analog signal to the amp smily_headphones1.gif
