[REVIEW] Fiio E17 - A Very Solid Little Device - Page 2

Thanks! If you don't need a DAC and are a basshead, then get a Digizoid Zo. If you need a DAC as well then I would go for the E17 as it is the upgrade to E17 so will generally be better.

Alright! Thanks for the advice! Will try both of the Digizoid Zo and E17 before deciding which one to buy! smily_headphones1.gif

Sounds like a good idea, let me know what you go for!

Hey man! In the end I settled with E17. No regrets. I don't need the DAC, but I found out that E17 suits me better, considering I just got myself a Future Sonics Atrio M5 with MG7 drivers. Thanks for the review, helped me a bunch in making that decision. smily_headphones1.gif

Atrio will give you enough bass anyway and i am glad that your liking it!

Thanks for the review!

 

Will this power the AKG Q701 and other full-sized headphones (don't know what to get yet)? Or is there another cheap amp/DAC more preferable for laptop/PC use?

I have both and I like the E17 better for Bass because it has a true Bass and Treble controls versus a 3-way switch. Seems to have a little better soundstage to me too, but that could be wishful thinking. Either way, I love it. It's the most sophisticated portable amp I've seen. I don't think there's another one made that has Bass and Treble controls plus Balance.

I would also like to know this because im considering upgrading to akg q701 from my ad700s.

Awesome review btw, the amp is great value for money and can be used with pretty much any multimedia devices.

Per jasonb's recommendation of the E17, I bought this little unit.  I am impressed and very happy with the E17 with my Q701 so far.  Just make sure you get the new production batch with authenticity sticker.  These have not sit in the warehouse for too long.  The old batch might be DOA cuz the battery in them lost all power during storage.  I had to return my 1st unit from Amazon because of this problem.  I switched to a different vendor who luckily had newer stock.  Everything works great so far.
