Fiio E18 - Page 141
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Possibly, but this would only use the AMP stage of the E18, not the DAC as well. The E12A would serve a better purpose with the X1
do you think that E18 is not suitable for the x1?

If you're just using the amp section of the E18, the DAC is wasted. Using an E12 or E12A might be a better choice as these are just amps and are better suited for that use case The E12 has the most power, if you need it. The E12A might be more suitable for more efficient/sensitive IEMs.
If you already own an E18 and the combination is working well for you, then why spend more?
