FiiO E10 Quick Question!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

As the title says, this is just a really quick yes or no question about the FiiO E10.

 

So here goes...

 

With the FiiO E10, being a 'Headphone Amplifier', would it work as an amp without the DAC function when it is used without a PC, or does this item always require a PC/Mac to function?

 

thanks in advance as any help is appreciated.

The FiiO E10 gains it's power via USB. It also has no other input other than the USB digital signal. So no it cannot be used without a computer.

Suggstions:
O2 -- JDS Labs about $145.
Schiit Magni --- Brand new item $99
Fiio E17 -- Can be used as a DAC via usb OR a stand alone portable amp.

The Schiit is not intended for portable use. Only for desktop use.

Ahh... i see, thanks for confirming! I just wanted to make sure, that was all. I also saw the Schiit Magni just a few days ago, I was going to purchase it, but the shipping to Australia was a whopping $41.. 

You seem to know your stuff, do you have any more suggestions for an amp/DAC with the cost of being under $90 AU/US that can be purchased easily, such as through eBay?
Also, if you know where i can get the Magni for a cheaper price incl. shipping, please notify me:)

Nothing, I was just wondering if it would work without a USB connection:)

Consider a used FiiO E17 if you are on a strict budget.  It's a portable version of the E10 and does not require USB power.

 

destroysall.
