Something to be said about the quality of Apple docks for sure, even the E09K dock fit is really sloppy.
I take it you have tried the reset and or letting the battery run out type stuff?
thank you mate
so I understand that if I connect E17 to my pc, the only way is via usb and I get 24/96.
and the best connection I can get with my note3 is again usb 24/96. correct?
no way to use 24/192 optical on note3?
Yes the best you will get from your PC with USB on the E17 is 24/96
The GN3 has no S/PDIF port so optical is out and with the E17 through USB the best you will get is 24/96
You might want to look into a hiFace DAC which will give you 24/192 on USB from your PC and GN3...
I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you have a ton of 24/192 music. The only thing I have in my collection with that bitrate and sample rate is Dr. Chesky's album which I almost never listen to.
Also, know that if you plug in the USB to the E17 and you don't have the USB Charge option enabled, the E17 will primarily run off the USB power instead of the battery. The amp circuit will be using the USB power and the battery will only be used for the screen and DAC.
This is the reason why it takes literally more than a week to drain the battery on the E17 (on an average of 3-5 hours of usage time a day) if it is plugged into the USB.
It's good practice to just disable USB Charge if the battery is over 50% (3 bars) and just use the E17 plugged in (not charging). Charging and using it at the same time aren't good for the Panda batteries on the E17. This goes the same for the E12/E18.
No. You will get 24bit 96kHz max from USB connection.
Anyone know why I would be getting "USB device not recognized" when plugging in the E09K with the docked E17 into my computer? I've tried switching cables and USB ports as well as trying a different computer.
I tried to do my homework and read the most of this thread posts,
apologies if double asking...
I'd like to buy an E17 for using with PC and galaxy SIII.
I currently own only really low end equipment:
· Philips citiscape earphone (12-23.5kHz / 32ohm / 30mW)
· SoundMagic E10 earphone (ordered, didn't arrive yet)
· Sony MDRV6 (ordering next month).
I'd like to please ask
· first if E17 is currently working with OTG/SIII,
· if E17 would represent a noticeable improvement on onboard soundcard, PC wise, and Wolfson's SIII.
I'm mainly looking for lower THD and some soundstage,
don't know if I'm asking too much from E17.
thanks in advance.
