I'm having some problems with my newly purchased Fiio E10.
My setup is a Core-i7 equipped laptop running Windows 7 x64, and I'm using foobar2000 + flac + WASAPI output @ 16bit 44kHz.
This problem also occurs when I use the same E10 with my home pc.
I have tried using several different headphones, and i experience the same problem with all of them; I'm currently using HD25-1-II.
Sound gets extremely distorted (like its coming from a broken FM radio) when I pause the song in foobar for 5 minutes. And actually, for every second that i wait with the song paused, the distortion gets that bad.
This doesn't happen while playing a (long or short) track but only when I pause it.
I tried changing my usb cable but that got me nowhere.
I also tried using one of those double headed usb cables which come with portable harddisks. so that, e10 gets enough power.
but that made things worse, i started getting random distortions with that.
has anyone else experienced a similar issue?
p.s.: no, I have not tried using another media player or normal output mode. why? because i was too stubborn and made myself believe that the problem was with e10; that these options just occured to me now.
p.p.s: can't return the unit to seller for some complicated reasons also the time and shipping costs of sending this unit back to Fiio would be too much of a hassle for me (I guess); any information on that?
