FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 295

post #4411 of 6546

I just wanted to say that still no fiio product that I've bought has ever displayed any fault. I've used this fiio 17 for 3 months now with my xbox/tv optical outputs and it's worked perfectly. Always.

I don't want to jinx it or something, but was just saying, you know, congrats to fiio, as it must be so easy to churn out craptastic products like other audio manufacturers. Fiio don't.

To those with an E17...

It seems either my PC or the E17 is being... dumb.

If I do tone test in:

32k, it will play at 16 bit/32k (shown on the E17 screen).
44.1k, it will play at 16 bit/48K (shown on screen)
48K, will play at 16 bit/48k (shown on screen)
88.2k, will play at 24bit/96k (shown on screen)
96K, will play at 24 bit/96k (shown on screen)

So is the E17 not able to play 44.1k and 88.2k at all?

Also, I have options to set the sound output to 24bit/44.1k and 24bit/48k, but the E17 still plays both at 16 bit/48K. The only time I ever get 24bit on screen is if I set the output to 88.2k or 96K.

A bug or a non-issue?

Not sure if this is normal, but doing a test tone for 192K will show up as 192k/24bit on the E17, but it's staticky and distorted, meaning unusable

I dont know where i buried the instructions but im pretty sure the fiio E17 offers more sample rates over optical and 192k is only supported by optical are you using usb or optical?

@madlustenvy
This question was asked a few pages ago.

44.1 and 88.2 are both shown as their higher based cousins. I forgot what multiple 96 and 48 worked offf but the e17 only displays select ones.

Wow..answered by the man himself. blink.gif Thank you...

 

How about telling us something about the next Fiio amp while you are here....

post #4419 of 6546
The next one is the E12, E7OK, E18 and E02i are also have been announced as next amps. None out yet. There is a thread on E12, and no details on E70K or E18 yet.

E18 is android dac and amp with android phones with otg usb support
E70K is update to E7 amp and dac, no details yet
E12 is flagship amp only, big brother(not update) to E11. I say not update as the prices for the two as of current info is 3X more on E12. E12 will have about 500mW to 800mW of power and can be charged while using

Hi bowei,

 

Some time back (four months approx) you....in this thread....posted E17 setup for 44.1k play, can you please give me the post id...I am not able to trace it.

 

It was kind of handbook for me and did not note down the post ID as it was part of your signature (which is not the case now)

 

Please point me to that post

There are some inaccuracies in the post dealing with nyquists theory though .
