FiiO " Flagship " portable amp Mont Blanc/E12 discussing thread. - Page 189

post #2821 of 3246

I dont think this is the right thread to ask this but everyone in here has a Fiio E12 so... What pouch or case do you use for traveling in your portable gear? I already bought two cases and both are fail. It wont fit. Kinda hard to look for what case will work. ;(

 

I bought a CaseLogic and a Pelican both wont fit my rig. (iPod classic - Fiio e12 - ZO2)

I think you just bought the wrong sized pelican. I have seen other sizes that I was able to directly try putting on my iPod Classic and E12 on and they fit fine plus some room for my IEMs.

The problem is that he's got three components, every other cases I've seen used with the E12 had just have to fit two components.

If you're gonna stick with three components you're gonna need a hell of a large case wink.gif

or he can move that small piece to the side and probably fit something like this

this kind of assumes he unplugs the cables (or even disassemble the whole rig itself) first though.

The following issue isn't exactly about the E12, but may be misattributed to the E12:

 

A few days ago my computer power supply OCZ600SXS stopped working (connector related), so I immediately bought a new, cheap one (Antec VP450) at the nearest Staples.

 

Suddenly, I hear audio static/noise from my soundcard that wasn't there before. Videocard activity such as moving the mouse also interfered with the sound, so it was a DPC latency issue. Usually, DPC latency issues are the fault of the motherboard or video and sound drivers, but I was using the exact same system. So it was the new power supply all along, and its irregular voltages.

 

That wasn't the only problem. Before, I can listen to the E12 while charging from a wall adapter with absolute zero noise at maximum volume. Now, I hear additional noise. Even when I plug the charger to a different outlet across the hall with a 15ft USB cable that I always used, I still hear charging noise. My power supply, above giving irregular voltages, is also improperly grounded.

 

So if you have audio static/noise issues with your computer or laptop, it may be the case that your PSU sucks.

 

Using the E12 with a portable player while charging doesn't emit noise at least with my JVC HA-SZ2000. But the SZ2000 cable is shielded, so that's a factor too. Try getting a shielded stereo cable that prevents ground loops.

Keine Verbesserung, das Grundrauschen bleibt und wird stärker bei Gain 16. 

No improvement, background hissing stays and grows louder with Gain 16. Seriously Fiio, even the X3s headphone output is clean as hell. Also, it doesn't matter if there's a source connected or not, hisses right after I turn it on.

Time to return it and contact FiiO.

Hoenstly, this is the first time I've heard of a bad defect on the E12.

Bought it through Amazon from a german Fiio Shop, doubt it'll matter if I contact Fiio. Also, people are apparently using the StageDiver series just fine with their E12. So back it goes.

Now this is interesting! Fiio created a kit to stack your E12 to X5. I wish there one for iPod classic. Or maybe its time to get a X5 wink.gif

es liegt am stromquelle :)

 

wenn du über usb kabel aus laptop laden willst ,dann bekommst auf jeden Fall hintergrundgeräusche

aber sobald du externe gute adapter nimmst dann ist alles sauber

Es ist ein wenig unsinnig in einem internationalen Forum auf Deutsch zu posten.......weischt!!!

OK :)

 

what i mean is that you should take a clean source

for example my laptop has special USB 3.0 controller inside and when i plug my E12 to USB 3.0 port it has background Hiss

if I use USB 2.0 which is integrated one, hiss dissapears

 

if i use external original adapter : no Hiss

with cheap one: Hiss

 

 

deutsch ist halt ne internationale sprache

wer sie nicht versteht ,selber schuld :D :D

spass

Nice, I wish they'd come up with a similar solution for the x3.......

+1 to that!

 

The email I received back from them said it would not happen due to the size differences...

Too Bad, It looks like a great alternative to 3M dual lock...

Stacking $120 amp with a $350 dap does not make sense. $350 dap should be more than sufficient to drive.
