iPod Classic -> LOD cable -> E07k -> L7 -> E12 -> headphones
L7 isn't the best. Go for an L3, L11 or L9.

Just get a custom LOD. I mightve gotten a "bad" unit, but my L9 started malfunctioning just after a few weeks. Always babied it, didn't stress the cable. Bought a custom copper LOD a few months ago afterward and still using it nearly daily.

It doesn't have to be Fiio is what I'm trying to say.

Where can I buy a custom one?

I go Walkman>LOD>E12 and have no complaints

If you want to read more, see this article:

Look at ChrisJ's post which pretty much sums up what we have been saying:

"Broadly speaking, if you have a good, low impedance desktop amp and you are using 32 ohm Grados or 600 ohm Beyers or anything in between, then you do not need an "impedance adaptor"."

 

Note that the E12 has a very low output impedance.

 

I see no point for an "impedance adapter" in this case since you aren't using IEMs.

very good handwork. The seller have some low profile listed but i belive he can do pretty much everything on request. As for the bit expensive LOD, i think its worth it, unless you can make your own.

Stelian's work is very good. I have two interconnects from him, one was custom with right angle plugs and they are both very nice pieces. He can make whatever you need you just have to send him a message via EBay and tell him what you want.

What?

Did someone call me out? :eek:

 

Seriously,

I use both 600 Ohm Beyers and 62 Ohm AKG 'phones with my E12.

The only change I make is I set gain to 0 dB with the AKG Q701 (the 62 Ohm 'phone)

I set gain the 16 dB with the Beyer DT880 (the 600 Ohm 'phone).

 

I don't use an "impedance adaptor" for either 'phone in any amp that I own.

post #2306 of 3122

Anyone know where I can find an E12 manual online?

 

Doc availability is one of the weak points of the Fiio site.

 

Thanks

I just got this amp and I'm using the supplied 3.5mm cable to connect to my iPhone 5. I was wondering if getting the lightning to 30 pin adapter and an LOD would be a worthwhile investment. Will there be a noticeable increase in SQ?

post #2308 of 3122
Possibly a decrease in SQ. The lightning port is all digital, so to create a line out feed the 30-Pin adapter has to use it's own DAC, which FWIR may not be as good as the one in the iPhone 5 anyway.

How to reduce the EMI noise when clipping the FiioE12 together with the iPhone ?

You may try taking out SIM card, but it will disable the cell phone function.
