They have an e90k for desktop that uses the original e17 and e07k as a DAC but no crossfeed. About the same power output with USB.

Any alternatives? If the E12 did not make any noise when connected via USB to a PC I would use that but I am put off by that possibility.

USB simply does not deliver so much power. The amp could not perform so well. You might want to check on the SCHIIT FULLA.

Actually, I don't listen from a PC with any gear because every time that I have I get unwanted computer noise. My MacbookPro works fine but I typically listen with my DAP either plugged in to the e12 or coax to my full size headphone amp.

The Schiit Fulla that pietcux mentioned above may be what you need for a cleaner signal. I've heard good things about it but haven't used one personally.

My E12 is pretty silent, noise wise.
Both when connected with PC, or laptop, or iPad, or iPhone.
I use it in low gain mode though, mostly. In high gain, you can hear some very minor noise when no audio is played, but that is no source of concern for me.
