Can I plug active speakers or active subwoofer into one of the headphone jacks or will the amplifier in E07K fry my speakers?

 

Wanting to do one of these two things:

 

PC --> USB to E07K --> headphone out to active speakers (Microlab Solo6C)

 

or

 

PC --> USB to E07K --> headphone out to active Subwoofer (Whafedale SW150) --> RCA out to speakers (Microlab Solo6C)

 

I know the right answer is to get a FiiO L7 and have line out to speakers/subwoofer (and I have ordered and waiting delivery). Will there be any harm in not having/using the L7?

won't fry them so long as it's very low volume

I'm a little lost

 

This is an amp and a dac in one box

 

They both work fine on computers

 

But do they work on your phone?

Does the DAC work on phones or just the amp part of it?

I have a Nokia N9...

When connected via USB, the E07K works both as a DAC and amplifier. When connected to the E07K's aux in, you are only using E07K's amplifier section only.

Okay, thanks for the quick feedback.

 

I've done some more digging and learned some things.

 

If you connect to the Fiio through the 3.5mm jack, you will ONLY be using the amp.

 

But if you connect to it through the mciro-USB, you can use BOTH the amp AND the DAC.

 

SO if your phone has a mini-USB cable, it can utilize BOTH the amp AND the DAC.

According to the link above, Nokia phones(mine :)) are compatible but you need a special cable.

 

EDIT:

Anyone know If I can use a mini-usb male to male cable to connect between my phone and the Fiio?

No problem.  Just make sure to set the E07K's gain to zero, so you don't feed your active speakers too strong a signal.

 

Let me know if you hear a difference with the L7.  I suspect that you won't unless you have golden ears, but that could just be the miser in me saying I don't need it...

Just in case anyone was wondering, this works great in USB mode right out of the box on the Galaxy S5 Prime SM-G906K (Korean) on Android 4.4.3.  I had to buy a separate mini to micro USB cable from ebay UK, but it was only about $2. Sounds much better than the original DAC.  I could only find a couple posts anywhere on the net about the S5 and nothing about the Prime so was a little worried it might not work.  My friend is stopping by in a couple hours with his Korean version Galaxy Note Edge so I will update this post with the compatibility of that phone too.  Kind of makes me wonder why the Sony Z3 ads made such a big deal about USB audio out, it seems like most modern phones support it pretty well.

 

I can also check compatibility with the Korean Note 2, Note 3, and International SIII if anyone needs me to.
