There is no guarantee it will work. Another user said it works but we dont have a large user base that tried it.
I wish you the best of luck if you wish to attempt!

It definitely works for me (iPad 3rd gen -> CCK -> E07K -> headphones). Listening to Spotify through the Andes as I type this on the iPad. You may have to disable USB charging from the dac's menu though. With charging enabled, I got an "accessory not supported" message saying that it draws too much power. Battery life is good, so I'll just charge from my PC as needed.

On the other hand, still no luck with my Galaxy S3. It works every time with a USB audio tester app on the phone, but not with any music player I throw at it (except for once when it inexplicably worked with Spotify, which I can't reproduce).

Whats wrong with the Benchmark DAC1's dac? Nothing. People just want to upgrade and use better stuff

Thanks for answering!

I have a mac mini and an ipad, and my shure 840 headphones perform 10 times better with the mac's DAC. So I want to improve sound quality on the portable version. I don't consider the shure cans difficult to drive, though.

Thanks!

Just bought a E07K to go with my new KRK KNS8400s. :)

Would I be daft in going for this plan? I'm thinking of getting some decent IEMs without the inline controls.  Maybe X10s or similar as I've been harping on about them for over two years now, but never gotten around to buying them!  Obviously inline controls won't work with the Andes, so I'll keep my Note2 IEMs for convenience when walking etc, but use the new IEMs and Amp when at my desk etc. Or spend more to get ones with inline controls, even though they only work when not using the andes amp?

 

Waste of money doing that?

well.. this is annoying. trying to purchasing a E07K.

it seems like the miccastore, headroom, mp4nation all don't carry it.

 

only the Amazon dealers do and based on what i've read from my search.. they may or may not be the most reliable sources

You could get a desktop amp/dac instead

Most if not any amp will allow controls as thr circuitry for relaying them doesnt look like it will work well
