FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 302

I wish I still had the Lyr when I had the Q701. I could imagine it being a truly wonderful combo.

I heard a Lyr and a pair of Qs for about 10 minutes a few weeks ago, it was one of those "Ahhhhhhh!" moments!

Right headphone sound is coming too low. Settings, not a mistake. Headphone mp3 player sound is equal on both sides. What could be the problem, what can I do to fix?

Check left and right channel setting on E17. Double check that is if you havent already

Do some testing to makre sure it is just e17

Here is my E17 unboxing as well as a set up and use guide.

I also do size comparison with other amps.

My E17 is being really annonying. I'm using it on my computer (Gigabyte H55N, Windows 7 64 bit, Fiio driver 2012/6/22) and after 30 minutes to one hour of playing music and browsing the web I've got this :

- if e17 plugged in USB 2 port (intel chipset) : BSOD with "bugcode usb driver" message

- if e17 plugged in USB 3 port (renesas chip) : shuttering for few second and then no sound at all but e17 still detected by Windows and appear on the sound manager. If I restart or  unplug/plug th e17 I still got no sound. 

 

It happens more often if I start a flash video with Opera browser and with Windows Media Player still opened but paused.

 

My E17 is configured on 24/96 setting via Fiio software.

It could be the streams caused a system erro. Try with another computer with extended use to isolate what is causing it

What does the "System Set" function do?

post #4526 of 6535

So I'm going to apologize, but there's hundreds of pages of posts to muck through so I'll just ask the question.

 

Today, my E17 refused to turn on for some reason - tapping the Power button had zero effect. When I plugged the thing into my computer, the power button flashed red for literally a microsecond or two then when dark. I did this multiple times before unhooking the unit.

 

So, a few hours later, I decide to plug it back in to see what happens. This time, the power button turns red and stays that way. After a few seconds of bewilderment, I unhook it and turn it off, back on, everything's fine. Battery shows 5/5 bars. E17 was accepting USB input the entire time.

 

Anyone knows what happened here? The battery was near full, yet the amp wouldn't power on. It also refused to charge momentarily, though after a few hours of the device sitting around, it suddenly started working again.

There are some quirks in the E17 that have happened to me as well where I had to plug and unplug and then try again before it would turn on. I can only guess that it may have been the E17's own instructions and programming had an error and what not. If this problem continues or you start getting weird battery life or other various problems. Then that is not something that is "normal".

i had it too

its the battery running out

attach the usb cable to your comp, and the red light turns on

dont turn it on- just leave it off and plugged in for maybe a minute to let it charge a bit

then try turning it on, and turn on usb charging as fast as possible (or it may automatically be set to usb charge i dont remember)

 

if it doesnt turn on, leave it in connected a bit longer without turning it on

What fuzzyash said.
Also, in case you didn't know, when used as a DAC, there is really no need to have the display on. I have found out that with the display off, the battery doesn't run down (at least, it hasn't on me after a week or so). You turn off the display by turning on the hold. That will prevent your battery from running down, and from burn in on the screen. I have heard people say that they leave their amps on 24/7, so you might consider that, though I personally turn it off when not in use for more than an hour or so.

OMG.. My friend tried my combo-setup E11/E17/L7 and by fault disconnected the L7 from the E17, this would be okey I guess, if he just had been opservative to plug it correct in again.. (but he did not)

It istant shut down, and now it wont turn on again. I tried both to replug it into com likewise wallplug, and read light will sure enough come on, mac will likewise detect it as plugged in, but it sure wont turn on confused_face_2.gif blink.gif

I did several times try to reset it with no luck, is it done? What do you think I could try now to get it working again? 

(really stupid it can plug in both ways, if it results in a device melt down, omg should never have let him try it)

 

Anyone got a suggestion i didn't already try? Would be so appreciated if any regular_smile%20.gif
