Just purchased my Andes for use with my iPhone 5. Any need to get accessories or higher quality male to male 3.5mm aux cables that would go nicely with it?

Get a Apple Camera Connection Instead xD

Hello, i have Fiio e7 (almost the same then)

 

I have a sennheiser hd 25 (and waiting to receive my Fidelio x1)

And i use the Fiio e7, with a galaxy note 2

 

 

And i just discovered that i used my Fiio e7 the wrong way ....

I did that. 

Galaxy note 2 jack to Fiio e7 jack => and i connect my Headphone on the jack output of the fiio7

 

And i've just discovered that i was only using the amp part of the fiio e7 and not the DAC (now its obvious)

 

Now i have to use the Micro usb Female of my galaxy note 2 to the mini usb of the fiio e7 ?

The jack output of the Galaxy note 2 to the Mini usb of the fiio ?

The micro usb of the galaxy note 2 to the mini usb of the fiio ?

 

 

Im lost :/

 

 

To do that a simple way:

The best combo ?

 

1) to 4) ?

2) to 4) ?

2) to 5) ?

I've Checked on the net and yup, that is the best solution


Android phones seems to allow that since jellybean (not every dac but it look like that the Fiio e7 allow it)

 

There is a condition: You have to use an OTG cable.

 

Im trying to find an otg cable Micro usb MALE to Mini usb MALE for europe with less than 50cm if someone find that can you link ?

 

 

 

Second question: I have a Creative Titanium HD as sound card for my PC

 

I heard that the DAC of the titanium hd > Dac of the fiio e7

But what about the AMP side ?

Should i use a RCA cable

And i link my titanium (rca side) to the fiio e7 (jack INPUT) to use the DAC of the titanium and the AMP of the fiio e7 ?

or there is better solutions ?

Elsewhere on internet it would be a joke. Not here

You use Andes DAC with a CCK on a supported ipad.

iPhones and iPads with the new lightning docks can't really use the CCK to allow to use an external DAC anymore (cheaply that is).

Not sure where you can find the OTG cable as I am not an Andriod user. Sorry.

As for your sound card vs Andes, my answer is, best test it yourself! It can be very objective and opiniated. smily_headphones1.gif

Happy listening!

Darn! Anyone with an access to an oscilloscope or a good multimeter out there to help check the readings? Or let's just Google the specs and puff up how awesome they are. :-/

In all seriousness, is DYI spirit and tools still out there? I'm totally getting an oscilloscope as soon as I get a garage to store it in!!!

Fun of it is probably, even if that, the only reason to set the gain as e07k begins to sound crispy like a cheap DAP on max. Unfortunately I have to set up +6dB gain for my Q701 sometimes and hence would love to know the physics behind it.

So my E07K that I ordered was on back order. I decided to just cancel it and am wondering if going up from a E07K to an E17 is worth the money. Thoughts?

IMO, all the gains sound the same but I hardly uses the E07K amp and never done a serious test xD

Objectively, yes. But the E07K is warmer smily_headphones1.gif
