Have you ever tried a high-end IEM, or a CIEM or a high-end IEM with custom molded ear tips? I assure you the results do not sound like rubbish on trains, busses, or airplanes. I am not judging you for your setup, just explain to me the fact that you use it in other rooms and etc. and I'll get it. No need for the consecutive quoting and attacks.


I apologize for quoting you consecutively. I just couldn't understand why someone would react so violently to another persons music preferences. Well anyway, lets just get past this and carry on with the thread. No hard feelings :beerchug:.

Not a problem at all, I am sorry too about the post. It was really just a silly misunderstanding blown out of proportion! :beerchug:

Have you tried other amps besides the E17?  

 

I like the E17 but don't like the button placement.  The top rubber band has to go somewhere and often ends up covering the Menu button on the E17.  


@DMinor I'm going to look into that amp and when I get some extra money I will be purchasing it. biggrin.gif

I'm eventually going to hit the same amp DMinor suggested and the one he uses. But you are 100% right. The rubber bands and button placement is bad. Either the Ipod screen or buttons get covered up.

What attracted me to the Fiio E17 was the ability to equalize the bass AND treble. I enjoy a bump in the treble more than bass.

And to him CF sounds better than SD card. I'd love to try it. And 256GB capacity would be awesome. Oh and I'm pairing my 5.5G iMod with a Fiio E17 amp and a silver LOD with no caps.

Wait, no caps? You mean the caps are in the iMod right? Can't be cap-less. 


I believe there are DC blocking caps bolt into the Fiio E17. The iMod is cap-less. I do have an ALO copper 18 LOD with caps. But I am using an all silver wire LOD with no caps direct to the E17.

Since, almost all amps have some kind of DC blocking caps, so doesn't this render the ALO Audio Copper 18 LOD useless ??!! Or maybe....even more constrictions in the audio path ??! >>because of DC blocking caps in the LOD and then again in the amp>>

 

Would you care to elaborate the differences b/w using a silver LOD (without caps) and the ALO Copper 18 LOD (with caps), from your imod to the E17, in terms of SQ?

Ohh, I see.

Thanks for the info...I reckon I was ill-informed then>

 

But, it seems that amps with DC blocking caps, like the E17, are able to accept the "pure" Line-Out signal from an imod (without caps) without the need of a special LOD...

I love my Parterre also. A French head-fier informed me that  "Parterre" means "Front Row" in French.

May I know which whiplash are you using? I presume they improve the sound over the stock 001...
