Plugging in one cable with the E07K it won't show up on my computer, plug in the other one and instantly shows up. Kinda weird. 


One is probably just a charge only cable, like the ones with the E11's no data lines just power and ground.

will the e07 have a better DAC compared to the e7? planning to hook it up to an e9. i read before that there were criticisms on the e7's dac when paired with the e9, curious to know if the e07 improved it, thanks in advance :)

 

also will its DAC be better than e10 or D3? many thanks

E7/E07K/E10 all use the same exact DAC but with different inputs and implementations.

D3 is a multi media(tv) dac and not really one one should use for audio headphone purposes

^thanks for the reply, i didnt know the D3 was not exactly for headphone purposes, i was thinking connecting my macbook using toslink to the D3 and then the D3 to the E9. many thanks again  for the info about their DAC

The D3 isnt marketed for it. The MBP has a nice CS dac that may perform better even.(may is the key word)

I received my Fiio E07K today.
It will not turn ON the first time, because the unit's battery was drained totally.
I dont know that Andes units are like this, or are all Fiio amps/dacs like this?
Don't they come precharged?

Got mine on Monday and it came fully charged.

Wow. Maybe my unit got stuck at the shelf for a long time and it drained.

What happens or are there changes if E07K is used in tandem with a USB 3.0 cable/port instead of the usual 2.0?

Hmmm... When I connect the E07K to my computer via USB, am I right to say that both headphones ports will remain as headphone out rather than line-out ports and the aux in port beside the USB port will become useless?

 

Thanks!

Usually yes. Charge it up. Keep an eye out so it doesnt exhibit symptoms

. Unlike the alpen. There is no input selector

If you have both usb and aux plugged in. Alpen will choose aux as the main signal and use that. This is so youcan charge and use aux in. You have to pull out aux in to actually get sound over usb.

Connected how?

 

But no. It will NOT receive any power in any way shape or form when connected to any thing through 3.5mm input.

sony walkman->L5->E07K

 

I saw a recharging icon(lightning symbol) on the andes while I was trying it out with the walkman, or does it just mean it is discharging?
