Chance are your motherboard's DAC feature is low quality, that why I recommended the Asus Xonar sound card.
As the E11 does not come with a DAC, you would be stuck using the motherboard's DAC.
With the Asus Xonar DG(X) you can use the sound card EQ features.
i see what u mean. i have this motherboard if this help.
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
but if i needed a DAC, dont the E07k or E7 have it or the E17? then i have a amp/dac that can control mids and highs as well with the lows? Cause you said the E11 only control the bass and have a gain boost which is good but i like to adjust the EQ on my mp3 as well on my computer. and if i get the E7, do i need the E9 for it since i cant get the E07K and use it with the E9? if i get the E17, do i need the E9K for it? or what other recommendations do you have because i want more than bass control on the go. It seems the E07k, E7, E17 let me have an EQ.
also do i need the FiiO L7 Line Out Dock (LOD) Cable For E7 USB DAC/AMP?? and i know it works for the E7, but does it work with the E07k or E17.
Or something else you recommend?
I just dont want to get a sound card for my pc right now lol, and i see the E7, E07k, or E17 can work both as a portable amp and pc amp with the controls i need unless you have a better choice that dont involves a sound card. i know im asking for help from you and not taking your suggestions, but i want to make sure you know what i want and i can find the right solution. Thanks!
