Yes, manually set it back to zero gain. Well, at least on the older firmware, you can press the input button to go from USB around to other input, adjust the gain and back to USB, and the gain will stay at what you have adjusted. However, it is easier just to stick to 6dB if you can't hear any issue.

How good is Leckerton Audio UHA 6s compare to E17 ?

I've also encountered this 'feature'...  it does seem to be a firmware default setting. OK when undocked but reverts each time placed into the E09K.

Maybe FiiO will be able to provide an option of choice in a future firmware update ?

I know there is at least one person from FiiO who's commented on the forum so hopefully will spot and may be able to feed back ?

 

Regards,

I don't know if it's just me, but I find the sound is a bit nicer without any gain.

 

I would have thought that one of the benefits of having more power from the E09K is to not require any gain. Regardless, to have to change a setting each time when turning on a device is not user friendly.

Never have a UHA-6 before so I am not going to comment much on it. As for O2 vs. E17 - please check out the link in my signature.

I was searching through the forums and came across the below comment from this post that James from FiiO made regarding the firmware:

James, hopefully you will see my question. Do you mean to say that the newer firmware prevents the gain from defaulting back to 6dB when docked? I suppose there wouldn't be a way to upgrade my firmware would there? I've checked and I have the older firmware.

Thanks for the clarification James. Could you also confirm the other question I had as well?
