I am kinda new to the equipment here..I bought a FiiO E11 3 years ago and I have now purchased a Hifiman HE400s and want to upgrade the audio quality of the amp so I don’t lose any of the soundstage. The problem I have is, when I go portable my source is my galaxy s6 edge. I have tried to read back through this thread, but I cant find anything saying whether or not the USB OTG will work with this phone? I would prefer to bypass the DAC on the phone, I don’t like to amp an amped signal…
I will be upgrading to whatever the newest phone there is in June, but I will have stay with Samsung because I have their Smartwatch and will lose functionality with another brand.
I have heard the new s7 will have an upgraded DAC/AMP because of their affiliation with Tidal??
Would the E18 give me the sound quality I want with my current phone or the s7 by just driving the amp from the headphone jack? (if I cant use the OTG) Would the E12 be better sound quality?
Thanks in advance!
