FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 75

Due to the design of the jack, I am unable to plug it in completely. The jack is working fine for my laptop though, not for the E07K. I am considering to get a 3.5mm to 3.5mm adapter but won't the sound quality be poor? Advices please?

It looks normal

The andes when new requires a bit of force. This is because of the new tight plugs fiio have

It goes in as much as needed. I can send a photo tomorrow how it looks when plugged in with my dt880 which should have the same plug. If you can see only the threads of the screw on adapter while inserted, you are fine. Opnothing of the 3.5mm part should be visible. If that doesn't do it, then something else is wrong. The dt990'plays just fine on the fiio.

Thanks for the pictures and help ! I'm planning to sell it unfortunately, I think it was more of an impulse purchase.

Hello there newbie here, I have a question, Does the Fiio E07k provide a line in from which I can record when connected through USB ? (like a sound card line in), or is the line in just for feeding audio to the amp part ?

I have a macbook 13" with no line in so I was wondering if I can use the E07K to record audio to my Computer.

 

Thank you

No the fiio can't do that. However your MacBook can be fed by the headphone jack. It's combined line in or headphone out as far as I remember.

Yes just checked, you can switch the port from headphone out to line in in system preferences.

Unfortunately, the newest Macbook does not have combined line in/out...

You are of course right. The latest MacBookPros don't have that functionality anymore.

 

Well, the E07K doesn't have that functionality, so you would need an external USB soundcard with line in for that.

 

Cheers,

Can you use the E07K as just a DAC and bypass any of its amping capabilities?

Yes, you can. The E07K is capable of working as a standalone DAC with the accessory called L7 to bypass it's internal amp to another amp :)

 

Happy listening!

I don't think I'll need it now that I think about it. Will pull the E09K (replaced by a Magni) from my gaming rig and combine that with my E07K at the office and that will take care of my needs there. Honestly, I just need to replace all of my FiiO amps and dacs because I've just grown unhappy with them. Will probably replace the E09K/E07K at work with a simple Vali/Modi combo instead.
