Here's my setup.. Please comment and rate!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Ok after some research and answers from some users that i want to thank like kitaki and DanBra and others,

i've come up with the new setup:

 

1_Galaxy S2 with poweramp or voodoo hack >> FiiO e7 amp >> AKG K450

2_Laptop or DeskPC >> FiiO e7 dac >> AKG K450

 

I'll buy the E7 and the headphones for a total of approx 120EUR.

 

Please let me know what you guys think.

 

Thanks to all

Pretty sure the voodoo hack doesn't work with the GSII.  You can see the compatibility list here.

Too Bad, i'll use poweramp then...

as far as i know, for some ppl it is a viable solution.

 

Atm i cannnot change my phone so i hope that the FiiO wil help even if it receives a already converted signal.

Poweramp is not really a substitute for Voodoo.  It's a software media player that offers better EQ options than the native android media player, whereas voodoo is a hardware-level hack that unlocks features of the Wolfson DAC chip present in some players to improve SQ. 

 

Poweramp is great if you're stuck with a GSII, but all it really does is upgrade the SQ from "horrific" to "bad".  You'll still wish your music sounded better. 

 

I guess if you carry around your E7 it's a moot point because you'll be bypassing the GSII's internal DAC in favor of the external DAC, so you should make sure that works.  Not all external DACs can get a usb audio signal from every device. 

 

Also, since you mention Euros, be careful when you do research about US vs EU variants of phones.  For example, the international GSIII got a Wolfson chip, whereas the US version didn't.

From my previous post:

My device is not able to output a digital signal at the moment.. i will mess around with this when jelly bean comes out for my phone..

Now i will use the amp only. And i hope that i'll get some better sound out of this. Not perfect but better.
