post #241 of 1743

Will the E18 be compatible with the nexus7, the nexus 4 or any smatphone which usually don't work with a DAC without USB Recorder pro ?

                  DAC                     AMP                                           Power Output

 

E17          WM8740              AD8397                                        250mW@32ohms

 

E18          PCM1795             OPA1612+LMH6643X2                300mW@32ohms

 

whoa PCM dac nice choice there :D those things have a nice sound :3. I'm enjoying my m801 atm and I'm pretty sure it is also using a PCM dac.

I use an iPod Touch 5th generation to use with my headphones. Should I get the E17 or the E18 will work ALSO with iDevices?

As far as I know, Fiio is closed till October the 5th due to a national holiday week. :bigsmile_face:

 

He might answer as part of the commercial branch of the brand, but I wouldn´t expect so.

If it's not on the list of devices supported then it's likely it hasn't been tested. It will probably work with USB recorder pro but whether it works natively is up in the air because the Samsung devices listed all have legacy audio usb support and that's something special that Samsung added.

The DAC will likely not work with iDevices because, as said earlier in this thread, you need to get the license from Apple and Fiio doesn't have that. This is also why DACs for Apple devices are so expensive.

for the Android phone which not listed to be supported by E18, it may still works with E18 but we have not tested all the Android phone by now. but we will update the list in the future depend on the feedback of our customers.

James:

  Looking at the image you posted for the E18, I noticed that the Drive Ability (recommended) Impedance is 16-150 Ohms. What happens to those of us that have 250 Ohm HP's like a Sennheiser HD600, etc.? Can you also give us  the voltage, current and power limits for the output at the common impedances, including 250 Ohms?

Recently I've picked up an E12 amp and am very pleased with it.

U guys should know that, Apple is finnicky with everything they own, and if Fiio where to get the liscence I have a feeling the price would increase FAR more than what it would be worth to most of us

Hello. I have the LG G2 on Android 4.2.2 and it supports MHL and OTG. I just purchased some new Westone W4R IEMs and was hoping to get a great listening experience with a FiiO product and my G2.

Is there a FiiO product that will work for me? Mainly this new E18?
post #252 of 1743
I suppose the E18 will work. On the other hand, being 4.2.2, you might wanna try first the E17 that might work.Initially, the E07K wouldn't work.
post #253 of 1743
Well, I'm pretty confident that the G2 will get 4.3 and even 4.4 pretty soon given it's LG's flagship smartphone. So by the time the E18 comes, my G2 may be updated.

What I don't understand is what happens when you plug something into the phone. Is there some kind of app that I need?

When you plug through USB a DAC, all the sound is redirected through it, and you bypass the internal DAC and amp. The same that would happen in a computer.

Ah! Great! I was hoping it was something easy like that. 

 

Is the E18 suppose to be light weight and thin? I have to figure out a way to trap it to my phone. I was thinking Velcro would work well so I can take it on and off.
