FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 412

Remove the ASIO drivers you don't need them. Also is there a cell phone close by? If so move it to another room and see if the noise goes away.

I think it may be a software-related issue because it does not happen on windows 8 with foosbar (direct sound). the problem occurred on windows 7 with jriver media center (asio and wasapi).

I have the 5.5gen ipod video and I was wondering if it would be worth getting the L9 cable for use with the e17 or if I should just stick to the stock 3.5mm cable the e17 comes with.

I kind of forget, the eq settings for the e17 only function when it's being used as an amp correct? If i used it solely as a DAC it wouldn't? or am I completely off on both counts? thanks

Yes get the l9, I got my e17 back 5-6 months ago. but I believe you're talking about the 3.5mm---3.5m cable right?

 

You want to use the L9 cable because it'll bypass the amp inside your ipod video into the e17.

If you use the stock 3.5mm cable, i believe you'd be dual amping (a big no no) through your ipod's internal amp and the e17.

 

 

tl;dr-get the L9, it's a lineout dock. You can only usually bypass the internal amp of apple products (except i believe a mod you can do with the ipad 2 and a camera kit) but you'll have to use the DAC of the the apple products unless u pay heavy money (not worth it, just get another music device at that point imo)

Going to try different usb cable/port, different music player, and OS.

 

BTW I also  get BSOD related to asio on windows 7 too. Guess asio doesn't like my computer. 

 

definitely give wasapi (event) a try. for some reason it works really well for me now in foobar-possibly an update?

 

I used asio for a long time because wasapi didn't work well on my computer (i got a hitches and clicks).

Just got a second hand Fiio E17 which I'm using connected to my galaxy S4 via USB OTG cable. Sound is much improved which is great. The issue is the S4 battery is draining at what is subjectively 1.5-2x the normal rate - and this is with USB charging turned off on the E17. Other settings: gain set to zero, vol at 18, tone settings all flat. 

 

All I have as a benchmark comparative is my old Galaxy S3 with a Headroom total Bithead DAC via USB OTG, which from memory hardly affected battery drain - perhaps a 10% increase if that.

 

So this typical of most portable USB DACs or if not then a known quirk/issue with the E17 and/or phone specific? 

 

Will the E17 work with Galaxy S3? I am considering buying the Fiio E17.

Initially not. You should consider the E07K or wait to E18 to be released.

Will that work with S3? I also heard about the Fiio E18, I am also considering that but will wait for reviews first.

post #6175 of 6556

The E07K "should" work with the S3. Some people has reported problems though. The international version works almost 99% sure and the US variants should be able to work, if not with the stock kernel, with some custom ROMs and kernels. 

 

E17 is practically sure will not work.

Can someone explain me. I got Note 3  and Fiio17  connected via USB everything is working , but i dont understand this

With note 3 Fiio17 shows 48k and 16bit  but when i plug it to PC  it shows 96 /24 (by the way i set in manualy with the driver)

 

So do i need to know something or this is normal and i would get only 48/16 via usb and my phone ?

 

 

 

Thx

The USB Audio Recorder PRO app, available on Google Play store, can output 96/24 PCM via USB.

The stock Galaxy S3, using the USB Audio Recorder PRO app available on Google Play store, can work with the FiiO E17.

The stock Galaxy S3, using other music player or streaming app, won't work with the FiiO E17.

Hi all, 

 

Me too stuck at 48k/16bit using Galaxy Note 3 with Fiio E17.

Tried USB Audio Recorder Pro Trial version, it also given the same output result with flac music file.

 

Btw, does that means that Note 3 can use Fiio E17 as USB audio out in stock and bypassing the on board audio chip?

 

Any advice?

 

Thank you.
