The Andes general trait is warm and bassy. But take it a few steps further. Tone down general clarity. Add some THD and other objective measurement "losses" and voila. Apple audio. Still better standard audio than most mass produced standard audio from
Others

 

By the way Panda, I forgot to mention but I do like your avatar. :P

Thanks. Let Steve Guttenberg's manly chest of Panda-ness overwhelm all your senses.

Is pairing E07K with E12 (instead of E09K) feasible and is it a good idea?

For what purpose? On the go?

Or desktop use?

If for desktop.... Why? Get a full desktop set from schiit, maverick, audio gd, nuforce, audinist, audioengine etc etc

Thanks Bowei for the insightful question..."desktop vs. on-the-go...'...

It was for on-the-go and I guess that makes E12 the clear choice.

You do have a very valid idea, use the E07K for the DAC and E12 for the amp, if you don't mind the thick stack on-the-go.  Main diff. between the two is that the E07K is a DAC/amp combo but the amp portion is not as powerful as on the E12 (which is only an amp, no DAC).  

 

I got the E07K for now and wait for the E18/19 which include a dac and a powerful amp.  I'm happy with the sounds E07K gives though...

I got the second one.


Update: Lindy cable arrived today aaaaand........... Still not working.  I'm pretty sure this is a carrier related problem. So for the people who have it working post your carriers so others will know what carriers this works with, and those of us who can't get it to work should post our carriers as well, to save others money.  On the bright side I can use the lindy cable for my ps3 controller when I play my playstation emulator on my phone, so it's not all bad.

Here is my previous post showing that it work with the Note II N7100. If it is a problem related with the carrier, then check your model version, and hopefully you could install a cleaner and more generic ROM for your model.

 

Have a look around XDA. Maybe somebody came out with a custom ROM with USB Audio for that model.

 

Hope this helps.

1. I tried several kind of cables, from adapters to... almost everything. As someone pointed, they weren´t "OTG" cables. "On the go" for Micro USB cables means that one of the five pins is connected to another ground pin, telling the device that is connected to another device which can manage. This said.

 

 

 

 

2. I bought Lindy USB 2.0 Cable Micro-A/Mini-B 0.5m, which is OTG. Big disappointment at first, because it is A, and I didn´t realize it does not fit in my note II. As I had an useless cable, I decide to manually sand the chamfers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. I got the cable to connect with my note. As soon as I connect the cable (even with nothing else connected in the mini USB side) I get the next message: "Conector USB conectado" (USB connector connected).

 

 

 

 

 

4. Time to connect the Fiio E07K. I just tried connecting the cable first to the Fiio, then turning on the Fiio, and then connecting to the phone. Then I start "Your song" of Elton John in spotify and put on my Jaycar Pro Monitor. Sound is clear and defined!

 

 

 

Enjoying it right now...

 

 

 

Wondering right now if I sold my Fiio E17 very fast...

Reading your post again confirms what I was thinking.  Our Note2's are waaay different.

1. My cable fits inside my Note w/o any modifications

2. The USB connection message comes up with this cable (lindy) and the original USB OTG cable I ordered.

post #732 of 1287

Maybe I need spotify lie you? or that other player others report as working.  I tried with stock player and stock video player, and both don't work

post #733 of 1287

Update:

Spotify won't work with it either.

I have two lindy cables. After writing this post, I bought exactly the same you have, thus I have USB A and B for the lindy cables. If the USB message comes up that is a good start. 

 

Could you post a snap of your config page as the last one I posted?
