I have an E17, can you tell me where the volume control is?  wink_face.gif

They change their site and file availbility a lot

 

I know they had manuals for every product on their site, but not sure where to tell users to go now.

 

I used to be able to provide near step by step steps from memory.

 

Obviously.

 

Hold the E17 in your hand so that the E17 or Alpen silkscreen is facing your palm. The OLED screen will be in the top facing you. Now feel around the screen and move thy thumb to the right side. Bingo.

There is a 'reset' switch on the E17 Please press it Please use a USB wall charger and attempt to charge it that way

I tried every kind of Reset and it do not work.

 

I contacted the FiiO support and the answer was to procced with the exchange. And they ask me to inform the BH Photo Video to cover the freight, according with the FiiO's after-sale policy.

 

Until now, both BH and FiiO are very kind and it seems that I will not have any problem with the exchange, except the time without the amplifier.

 

Thank you all!

 

good to hear that, and hope our user can buy from a local dealer if there have. and don't worry about the warranty we will try our best to make our customer happy.

Hope you like it here.

The Beer Store!

Ya gotta love that name!

And to get us back on topic:
One thing I like about the E17 is that it is nice and portable, I can bring my iPod out on my deck with an E17, and pair of headphones and a beer.......all in one trip!

Received a new E17 Monday and so far, I am pretty impressed with it. Sound quality is good (can't say any more without listening longer), and I love the flexibility -- I'm using it mostly to replace my Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro which was adequate enough for usb->optical, and also for use with my secondary devices that only have digital out. I just wish it had a line-out that was built into the device like the line-in is. So far I've used it with Sony mdr7509's and Sennheiser hd580's. To my surprise, the hd580's had plenty of volume, even at the lowest gain setting (+0db) !!! As far as my basic understanding goes, it is best to use the minimum gain that gives adequate volume on a given amplifier, but headphones like the hd580's may benefit from devices that are inherently more powerful, such as the E09k which I was considering adding for my desktop computer. Can anyone clarify this?
