Soooo excited to be on the 'pending' list to demo the HE-400!

post #197 of 1438

How will weekends be handled?  I get absolutely no chance to listen to music on the weekends, so if by chance the HE-500's reach me on a Friday, I'll get no time in before I send them on out.

This doesn't answer the question in general, but the way the timeframes look right now, you'll probably get them fairly early in the week.

When I switch to eco mode there is a high pitched whine - it's not subtle, its quite overpowering.  Is this a problem with this unit specifically or a known bug with the system?

I have also read that is a common complaint in eco mode.  the general answer is to avoid eco mode.  kind of lame.

The FiiO E17 thread has a lot of info on this. I believe many said they are using their E17 to drive those. E17 is much more powerful than E7 and E9 is much more powrful than E17.

I have the E17 powering my HE-400's right now and it has zero problem pushing them. I totally underestimated the e17 from the word go and had zero intention of keeping it but man I was totally shocked at the total package. It's really good and had plenty of power plus the SPDIF input works great and gives it that added kick. It's a great buy IMO and will power anything you throw at it. Even the HE-6. There are some others out there that will push them better and have better detail but for 3 times the money so I don't see anything else out there that can compete for the same price.

The E17 is good for the HE-400, doesn't quite get it to its full potential, but if I'd never heard my Little Dot MKIII or Schiit Magni with the HE-400, I would have been completely satisfied. I've heard it leaves a lot to be desired with the HE-500, which are harder to drive than the HE-400.
