Fiio E17 Paired With HE-400 Or D600

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Still figuring out which one to buy.....

 

Anywhos I am pretty set on that amp. I will be using it with an ipod on the go and my macbook.

 

Question is: What cords do I need to buy seperalty?

 

If you can link them from Amazon that would be greatly appreciated. That is where I will be buying all this stuff from.

 

THANKS

Hi,

 

I got the HE-400 a few days back and i have the Fiio E17. In general, i am happy with the purchase, and i would definitly do it agian if placed in the same spot again.

I do not own the D600, so i cannot comment there.

 

From my personal expirience, the Fiio E17 drives the HE-400 very well (i had the chance to try the fiio E17 and then the Icon HDP desktop amp to compare, and i did not notice any quality diffrence in 20 minutes of testing, but do note that my previous setup was far worse, so there is a chance that, overtime, i would see the diffrence),

 

From my laptop, the HE-400 were untolerable to listen to at Gain 6, volume over 45, but this was from a CD and with Jetaudio maxed (and its the loudest program i have in my laptop).

What would be the next step up from the E17 as an amp/DAC (separate or combined) for the HE-400? Trying to figure out what the sweet spot in this investment would be. Thanks!
