FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 54

post #796 of 6535

Oooooo. First glitch! Its a very very small detail, so don't start getting concerned people. That fact that this is the only glitch I could find so far is a good thing.

 

Ok, so it may even be specific to my unit. But... when you haven't changed the volume for a while, and then you suddenly hit one of the volume buttons, it doesn't change on the first press. After that its fine, no problem. Now wait a couple of seconds, and change the volume again. Huh? Wat up FiiO? (Or is it just me? :D)

i think that's built into the firmware. i see lot's of devices that don't do the first press after unlock,boot,or set period of inactive time. :/ 

 

one question....when the heck does charging end!!!! ahh i'ts plugged into my mac and playing music. so the thing is blue and purple. i turn it off sometimes to see ...and it's red..meaning charging. i started charging at 4:00! it's now 8:30!! Y U NO!

i guess you thought about it and also realize there are/many devices that do that. i can't pinpoint or remember which one's i've ever used that do...but ..it's that feeling that it's normal ya know. :/

 

now...stupid charging!  Y U NO be done!

Mine took about 3 hours, but the USB ports on my motherboard charge at a 3x rate of normal ones (they give 450mA instead of 150mA).  They also charge items hooked up when the desktop is off ;)  Handy feature.

 

But I'd give it at least 6 hours if you have other things hooked up via USB while charging.  The amount of available power is sometimes split among ports at the hub's base (even an internal hub).

Loving my E17 thus far, though it's not playing nice with my E9 Amp via the dock connector.  Running a line from the E17 headphone jack to the E9 line-in at the moment until I can fix the problem, which seems to have existed since the old E7/E9 days:

The red light went off on mine when charging was complete.

 

And guys, I think we may be missing the most important question here:  did you put on any rubber feet?

im currently using it too. i hope the light just goes to blue (from blurple) so i will know

 

nope. i used a case on my touch so i didn't need to use the rubber feet to create a buffer zone between DAP and amp(so metal won't scrath) and since i am using bands..it is already no slip. the device itself slips though. so i might put plastic feet on back of E17 so it won't move around too too much later :D

I even tried licking the bottom to see if it was anything like the glue on envelopes. No luck :D

Well I have a 'soft touch' case on my iPod touch, but even in bands the E17 slides a bit on the back.

 

Man, the DAC in this is nice.  Desktop sounds even better than the iPod at the moment.

 

I do wish the 'Vol. Save' feature saved the different levels for each input.


EDIT:  Oh yeah, I let mine charge only.  No use when charging it so it might have been faster.

My other 'securing to a source' idea was to go out and buy a bunch of velcro dots.  Put the rough dots on the E17.  Then attach soft dots to them, then press onto a source.  Peel off, place new soft dots on the E17 hard dots, repeat for all sources.  At least then the sources would all have soft dots on them for pocketing without the source.

 

I dunno....

 

Also, does anyone else's OLED screen have a scan line on it when refreshing?
