FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 50

Is it rooted? Why don't you try perseus kernel?

post #737 of 1458
No not rooted, stock roms and kernels.

I never tried stock... I can not help out there. I bought it, made me the promise to wait a little bit more than usual to root it, and rooted it the following day. O_o

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...

Thanks for the idea. Helped a lot. Just got the E07K for now & skipped E12. Will wait for E18

Once again thanks much Panda Man, for guiding an excited Newbie. Just got my E07K. Really liked the effect of the amp (my first time into this stuff. So no real comps) just using Aux-in. Amazing.

 

Also tried "PC USB > E07K > stock_PC_speakers". The quality improvement using E07K is almost negligible in this setup. May be it's my setup but the DAC seems to offer little.

But, at least want something to get started and improvize incrementally. man these things takes time...

 

Yes want to try a few other setups including a semi-portable system for my bedroom for quiet listening. Thought something like "Nexus 10 > E07K > PSB_alpha_PS1",

Reading up on pros and cons. N10 doesn't seem to support USB Audio (Timur's Kernel only supports N7) and PSB speakers seem bass light.

May be a time optimal solution is: something like KEF's X300A speakers that has DAC/AMP built in & just hook up to a USB...hopefully it's N10 compatible.

 

PS: The aesthetics/finish, and complete-with-accessories, including a silicone skin of E07K is so impressive. FiiO is so thoughtful.

The manual does have a few clear usage scenarios for the product / configurations (Wish I had this info. prior to purchase. would have been so useful and saved me time).

Again I wish they had published the "contents of the package' online to save time. (they do list it out rather clearly in the manual)

I believe they do have online manuals for download for each of their devices on the FiiO website.

You are welcome.

What version, kernel, ROM do you have? Could you take a snap as one of the above posts?

 

Still trying to guess why some people has problems...

What do you mean by stock PC speakers?

Using such a device with cheap audio systems like built in pc speakers will of course produce negligable results.

Most "pc speakers" arent very meant to be clear or hq.

Today the postman rang my doorbell and handed me a parcel. Inside was

 

- FiiO E07k dac

- FiiO E09k headphone amp

- FiiO A1 digital amp

- Cordial CFU 0,3 CC professionell RCA cable 0,30m

- The t.akustik ISO-PAD 5 (pair)

 

I already own AKG K601 headphones and a pair of Audio Pro Evidence E.1 speakers with banana plugged wires.

 

Now using Foobar2000 to listen flac files with Kernel streaming plugin.

 

Definitely an improvement from mp3's and motherboards integrated audio circuit.

 

Thank you Head-Fi (and other boards).

Hey guys, amateur audiophile question here.

 

I'm currently using an iPod classic 7th Gen with a FiiO E12, would there be any improvement for me to switch to a Amp/DAC hybrid like the E07k?

The improvement would be if you are on vacation and want a dac for your laptop. Otherwise no
