Awesome.  Thanks for your help @StanD.  Can I extend the OTG cable that comes with the E18?  I'm looking to integrate this into my car stereo.

You can use an OTG cable as in the below image and then plug in a regular USB cable for the rest of the distance. That's how I connect my smartphone to a desktop DAC.

I use my 42 Ohm headphones (Marshall Monitors) and as a source I use Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (Newest android version- 5.1 I think), and Ive immediately heard that the smartphone isnt powerful enough for my headphones, so I bought FiiO E06 amplifier, which gives me enough volume. But I still think the sound isnt good enough, theres still something like clipping with some tracks (or albums) and a bit of hiss (Im not sure if Im calling it correctly).

 

Yesterday I tried FiiO E12 which helped with my problems quite a lot. But When I read about E18 in here, its ability to convert the signal into analog and better quality sound. And also the possibility to charge your smartphone with it (I was planning to buy portable charging unit). I want to buy this one, because it seems the best choice for me.

 

Do you guys think it will be a good buy for me?

 

Or should I just go for E12 or even smaller and cheaper E11K? But if E18 means better sound than E11K or E12 Im buying it! :)
