The right-angle adapters in the pic are those posted by lawrecedent some post before?

Yes, Peridot has had experience of them and sent the pic of them in use. The pic I posted was of them for sale on eBay.

Just out of interest, you say that you have a case that everything goes in, if you don't mind me asking, where did you buy it? and how does it look/work etc?

 

I share similar sentiments regarding Apple. While there's a lot not to like, the fact that the original dock connector survived through so many generations of devices is to their credit. I think the new lightning connector is also superior to micro-USB.

 

The case I use is this one. It was suggested to me by someone on here, although I don't think he's actually used it himself.

 

It's a bit wider than necessary, but otherwise perfect for an S3 with Anker extended battery (highly recommended) and the E18.

 

I ended up getting two of these, I have my modified 480GB iPod Video in one and the S3 in the other, swapping the E18 between them as required.

Ah I see, thanks for the pics and nice setup! I also notice you have some velcro pads which I assume you use to attach the e18 to the phone. I had a similar idea myself to buy a spare battery cover for my Note 3 and attach velcro to it for when I'm out and about with the amp. I also thought about customising the inside with tinfoil to minimise interference after reading a post from someone who had done this to good effect. Where abouts did you get the velcro pads from? Also, where did you get the micro usb cable? That looks loke just the sort of thing I'm after.

So I'm going to see if I can make my own

Did you have any success with making any cables? I'm not afraid of a soldering iron and having a go if you managed to solve the problem this way.

unfortunately no I have not had the time lately to try to make my own cable. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks when things lighten up. And when I do I will post results.

Looking forward to it, good luck!! I really want to get this amp safely mobile asap. Can't believe no one out there is making a cable like this, especially fiio when their design demands it. Could turn into a nice little money spinner if you're successful, there's definitely a gap in the market.

Did anyone find out if the e18 worked with the asus tf701.  Thinking about pulling the trigger on this or e12 tonight.

Thanks for your reply!

The USB OTG cable that you use in this pick where are from?

Can you post a link for purchase it?

Many thanks!

These are the OTG cables I have used - ebay link

 

I cut the USB A socket off and joined two cables together. The join sits in the hinge of the case and, given my limited soldering skills, joining them 'side-by-side' like this is easier than trying to produce a a neat 'in-line' splice.

Hi lawrecedent, cable details above. The velcro pads I used are these ones. They worked well on the Note for me, and I have also used them to hold the devices in the case, although I did need an additional spot of glue to secure them on the textured material that lines the case.

I do use it zipped up with just enough room for the headphone cable to pass through. 

 

I had thought that heat might be a problem and that I'd need some ventilation holes, however it only gets slightly warm in there. That said, I normally have the phone in flight mode and power saver setting playing stored music, so it may well be a different matter if I were streaming over 3G / WiFi.

Have just recieved my fiio e18, tried it with a nexus 7 tablet and could not make it work, if anyone knows a workaround will appreciate. thanks

You could try the app "USB Audio Player PRO"

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.extreamsd.usbaudioplayerpro&hl=en

 

Also, check their webpage for info.

If it does not work, uninstall and you can get a refund normally.

Google Nexus 7 yes May require a reboot with the audio device connected AND the language set to English-US (no kidding!). Google is said to solve this issue.
  Nexus 7 (2013) yes May require a reboot with the audio device connected AND the language set to English-US (no kidding!). Google is said to solve this issue.
  Nexus 10   May require a reboot with the audio device connected AND the language set to English-US (no kidding!). Google is said to solve this issue.

 

I hope this can help,

Regards,

 

Casper
