I hate the iTunes app. If you have a PC you can use the free version of MediaMonkey to transfer music to your iDevice, It works like a charm, real easy.

hahaha.
the thing is I am spoiled by OTG capabilities of Android devices and windows tablet. I just need to copy the files to my USB stick and transfer to any of my devices via microUSB cable. Anyway, that is me being lazy.

BTW, to add to my previous post above. The CCK trick doesn't work on my Theorem 720. So I am limited to using the dedicated iOS connection cable which is limited to 24/96 resolution. So this is a brownie point for E18!

Your E18 must sound better than the Sansa, especially if you have cans that require some measure of power. I'll bet that the DAC in the E18 is somewhat better as well.

It does sound better but the combined size & weight of the Note 3/E18 is prohibitive. The endured quality is something I can live with for mobile use.

I can see that being problematic, the Note 3 barely fits in a pants pocket and might give the impression of personal excitment.

Great to hear the the E18 works with CCK to lighting adapter!

 

Just out of curious would it also work witht the lighting to micro USB adapter, as its much smaller and would help with portability:

Nope, it needs the CCK, unfortunately.

That'd be interesting to know.

 

Edit: aw, shucks. Oh well. CCK works like a charm anyway.

In fact as we post, I am listening to my Touch 5G connected to a FiiO E18 with the CCK cable. The E18 is doing a rather good job of powering my HD600's besides what some people whinge about needing special amplification.

I highly recommend using SmartEQ or Neutron as a player rather than the POS that comes stock with iOS. Both apps are available in the App Store. As I always say, on a Windoze PC/laptop you can use MediaMonkey to synch your music files, I despise the iTunes Windoze app.

I also use the Touch + CCK with a powered USB Hub to connect to my desktop DAC (Bifrost Uber USB). I've probably mentioned this previously.

Knock on/off works on 4.4.2. but not the power button screen off.

Just got my E18 and with my LG G2 D802 on Kit Kat 4.4.2 I can only get to work with USB Player Pro not system audio.

 

However using the cheapest OTG micro USB adapter that I could find on Ebay the E18 works perfectly with Android System audio (Power Amp, Google Music, Amazon MP3 etc).

 

So is this an E18 firmware issue and can Fiio do firmware updates for the E18?

I will try the OTG cable as you mentioned. However, with 4.2.2, the cable that came with the E18 works with all the music apps, so I don't think it is E18 firmware issue. Thanks for the tip though.

post #1499 of 2236
I'm inclined to think it's LG's implementation of 4.4.2. that's causing a problem.

Has anyone compared running the Noozxoide apps on the Samsung galaxy note 3,too running the E18. How do they compare?
