James, will there be an LOD cable available to use this with the Sony Walkman F806 via WM port? Similar to how I use the L5 on the Walkman with my E12...

 

sorry, the LOD for Sony is not included in the box

Looking good! :smile: That said...I really hate to go off topic, but is there any word on the E19?

I think it is gonna be a sure buy for me, depending on the compatibility with other phones and the first reviews.

Now its the waiting game.... How soon is it going to be?

post #231 of 2270

I have a few questions:

 

1. Can the android phone power the DAC whilst the battery powers the amplifier? I am confused as to why there is a difference in battery life between amplifier and amplifier+DAC usage.

 

2. Can the device be charged and be used at the same time?

 

3. Can the android phone charge the battery while it's being used? If your using an aftermarket 7500mah phone battery this can be a useful feature.

 

4. Is the same amplifier that is being used in the Alpen being used in the E18?

 

5. Does the E19 Everest work with a Galaxy S3?

1, The phone can't power the E18. otherwise the battery life of the phone will be a problem.

 

2, Sorry need to confirm with engineer.

 

3, Not, it is the design of the Android Phone. 

 

4, Not, better amp than E18, it is our new OP+Buf structure and the output power is about 300mW@32ohms and the sound quality is better.

 

5, We stop the project of E19.

This part I do not fully understand. So is it true that the AMP of the E17 is better than the AMP of the e18? If so, why should one buy the e18? The e17 is as good to drive through an OTG cable and USB Audio Recorder PRO (which also bypasses the limitation 16-bit/48kHz)?

No. They are saying the amp is better in the E18 due to a new design.

Hey have any of you guys heard anything on the Nexus 5 and if it'll have a built in DAC like the G2, also made by LG?

Any digital device with an analog conector has a DAC... The DAC of the e18 is in any case better than those of a phone...

E18 can be used while charging.  anyway, the amp , the DAC in E18 is not the same class as E17. 

 

 

                  DAC                     AMP                                           Power Output

 

E17          WM8740              AD8397                                        250mW@32ohms

 

E18          PCM1795             OPA1612+LMH6643X2                300mW@32ohms
