The Sony F series walkmans are very nice with LOD out via the Fiio L5.

I was looking for a more cost effective way other than another dacamp maybe a dac converter cable if it exists

James, Is the E18 for all android devices? I plan on getting the new Nexus 7 soon...

 

And if so, what kind of LOD cable will I need... or will one come with it.

 

Thx

It's for Android devices and users that know how to get digital output working on their Android devices.

 

This basically means you need to have an Android device capable of USB OTG with its OS(ROM) supporting it as well, AND then the appropriate program to play audio and send it through USB OTG. The cable you buy also has made a difference for some as some USB OTG cables on ebay aren't legit and won't allow for full capabilities.

 

So if you are one of the people that have all those requirements down and know how to get USB audio out. Then the E18 will work for you.

I'm aware of having to do jailbreaking of some sort to get USB audio out from the first gen Nexus 7, but isn't the new one built with SllimPort capabilities, allowing audio out? I really don't want to go through the steps in the Nexus 7 thread to get audio out, possibly voiding my warranty.

 

Also, if using a OTG cable doesn't that mean I could just use any DAC/Amp instead of the droid specified E18? What makes the E18 especially for android devices?

 

I know this is the E12 thread, but I don't know where else to ask this. Thx

It's not really jailbreaking as most Android devices do not come loaded with measures to try to stop that. More of using specific ROM's to enable software support for a hardware(USB OTG) component.

 

I do not know the in depth specifics of new features to get digital audio out.

 

If you can get USB digital audio out, then you could use OTHER(not any) DAC's or DAC/amp units. However the power draw some devices put on the device is too much making some devices not be able to work with your Android device. The E18 is going to be more of a near guarantee that it will work and not use a lot of power.\

 

I'm giving generics on the process righ tnow.

Oh, ok thanks for clearing things up for me. It looks like the E18 is going to be my choice, then...

Really is quite slick 

post #2081 of 3262

Clarification?

post #2082 of 3262

 

Hmm, seems legit..

Considering he is a well established buyer who has sold many of these in the past.

 

I think he hit and added an extra 0 by accident. The E12 is $100-$120 USD so it wouldn't be that hard for him to hit it by accident

How was the bass boost in the end,

 

I heard people mentioning there where Bass Light and Bass Heavy models, the initial bass light models having much Tighter bass, and the Heavy being a little more bloated

 

I'm going to revist the Mad Dogs, but I want a neutral and more airy amp. The E11 did not perform well enough for me with my hm 601 line out and the Mad Dogs, Looking at the LME op amps in the E12 I'm already sold. But I'm still curious about the bass... there will be times when I'd rather have the Tightness reported in the Early Light Versions and times I'd want the Darker Heavy bass

 

does the E12 have 2 boost options like in the E11? [Sadly my Mad Dogs will be my only portable Closed can, as there's no way in hell I'm carrying my Ath w1000x to College q.q]

 

So I'd like an overall neutral and airy amp [which the e12 sounds like with those LME ops] Which the issues I had with the E11 and it's bass might be resolved. Still any thoughts on the DIfferent Bass Variants, is the Bass Light Version being sold again, via the "Special" kit being sold?

No bass heavy or bass light versions.

 

There was the pre production units with the bass boost focussed on the sub bass, and the retail release units that featured mid bass bass boost.

 

People complained about boosting sub bass and not mid bass so FiiO changed it.
