Noob Question Fiio E11 for an Ipad?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've always been a plug n play guy, I used to listen direct from my old video Ipod until that met it's maker in a very very bad way.

Now my portable music comes from my Android phone, playing thru my UE SF3's or UE TF10's, after recently joining this site it has opened my eyes and ears to a new dimension.

Reading posts I believe using an external amp on the Android is a little bit pointless as you cannot bypass the phones internal DAC and amp chip via the 3.5mm or micro USB dock.

Anyway I do not mind carrying my Ipad2 around for music, I was wondering if there would be any gain on running a Fiio E11 via the 30pin dock, is the Ipad internal amp any better than the Ipods / Iphones? I don't want to invest that much into the setup as I'm going thru the trial period.

 

Thanks

What headphones are you using?

I will be using my UE SuperFi 3s and TripleFi 10s, is there going to be any gains with using the E11 opposed to just running them straight from the Ipads own amplification?

I know zero about those headphones, hopefully someone else on the website knows more about them.
