hey i am also having the problem when using this as a DAC, that it's only displaying 48/16.. im working on studio files in Abelton Live.. and i know they are 48/24 because they were recorded that way as well as backed up by the track data TELLING me they are 48/24... yet my E17 still displays 48/16.. any ideas?

Mac? Have you checked your Audio MIDI setup settings?

Hey guys,

 

I just ordered one of these from amazon a few days ago.  Are there any drivers or programs that I need to download in order to set this up and use it?

It should automatically install drivers needed. Enjoy

Can I get some input on this amp/Dac. Can I connect it to my smart phone (Xperia Z) (USB Mini B 5 Pin male to Micro 5pin male Adapter cable)

or is this a PC only type unit?

 

Thanks. Riq

I don't see why you couldn't do that as long as a) your smartphone will output audio from the usb b) you have the right adapter.  I can' think of a reason why this would be considered a PC only unit.

I've tried using my Fiio E17 in DAC mode with my Toshiba TG01 phone which does have USB OTG but unfortunately doesn't have the necessary drivers to support an external DAC via the micro USB port. If anyone knows a solution to the driver issue (Win Mobile 6.5 OS) then I'd be particularly pleased to hear :)

 

Thanks and regards,

 

Kevin

I should have also added that it works stunningly, and in many respects on a par with the RSA Predator in purely analogue amp mode.

 

Regards,

I'd been planning on buying an E12 to put between my Clip+ and venerable 250 Ohm DT-770 Pros. However, now wondering about getting an E17 and connecting it to my mobile via USB instead of using the Sansa.

From the specs on the FiiO website, the E12 looks like a better choice of amp to drive the hungry Beyers. Does anyone have any experience of using the E17 with higher impedence phones?

Any advice very gratefully received please.

With many thanks,

Gavin.
