Hi, I'm fairly new to hi-fi and am on the lookout for a amp and/or dac. I will be using them on my Cowon X7 and Laptop. Right now I have my eye on the FiiO E11 and some other FiiO models. I'm mostly looking for sound quality.

The E17 takes the cake unless your willing to spend over $200, EQ, hold, off timer, digital volume control it's just the most usable and is flat out better than the E7, the E11 can hold its own in sound quality but not the features plus it doesn't have a dac.

Am I able to use the FiiO E11 for my laptop?

Yeah USB out into it and you have a USB DAC+amp with the cowon it will only be an amp but still work fine.

 

The E17 can be used while charging were the E11 can't that was the deciding factor for me.

ohh E11, you can use it as an amp with your laptop just not a DAC because it is only an amp, if you went with the E11 id suggest a usb LOD.
