That option is definitely not there.

I had FW00LA17EN

 

Let's wait till FiiO responds. I don't think its a fake, but who knows.

I dont think its fake either. They must have firmware variations, id just like to know why or what else has been changed.

There are not any report about fake E17.

 

We removed the run time features in FW00LD12EN because some user complained about the E17 they received is used, but we need to burn in the E17 before delivery . 

 

The second change is the new firmware make the E17 can adjust the gain while docking into E09K, nothing about SQ and big change.

Ok, thanks for the reply! Good to know.

Thanks. I thought it would be very hard for a company to build an E17 anyway. Getting the OLED panels, the hardware and metal case and everything.

So I just bought my e17 about 2 weeks ago from J&R and I am already having some problems with it. The volume buttons aren't registering properly, I have to tap the volume button 2 to 3 times for it to actually work and when it does it goes up by 2. Meaning there is some delay and you can't effectively increase the volume by one, basically you have to press it really hard two times for it to go up by two and that's when it works. I don't know if I am going to keep this product I mean the sound quality is amazing but the build quality leaves more to be desired.

That is an isolated issue. Reset it (hole at the top) and see if it still has this problem. If it does, either return, exchange, return and get different product. Sorry that a FiiO you bought had this problem.

 

That isn't a build quality. That is a software one.

I had also problems with the Alpen (with Win7 64).

 

The E17 shown as correct installed, but I was unable to get any sound when using it as DAC.

 

So, I sold the FiiO, things are relaxed again now :-)  ( ... sound was also a bit bloodless, but that could be a subjective thing)

Sorry things didn't work out dude, it was working fine for me on Win7 64 bit before i sent it to you.

Do you know if E18 will only works with Android, or can also with other sources like a PC?

post #4781 of 6536

are any amps similar to e17 but can plug 2 headphones in?

post #4782 of 6536
Anyone know what ranges the bass and treble controls affect? Merely curious...

I'm getting my my second E17 soon and specifically using its bass boost.

Thanks. What a dumb question, lol.

Ok, real question, when using the pre-amp for EQ to another amp, what volume on the E17 would you consider source level/identical to pure line out and what gain?

Zero gain, max volume.
