FiiO E10 or E07K - DAC only

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi.

 

I need a DAC for my laptop and my ATH-M50s. For this, people would recommend E10 over E7 cause it had better DAC.

But now that E07K is out, which one would be better, E10 or E07K? I have $90 credit on amazon from a returned E7 (broken OLED).

 

Thanks.

Come on guys... Anyone?

This is pure speculation since I only have the e10, but I know for a fact that the e17 sounds better than the e10.  And the e17 and the e07k share the same DAC.

I've only had the E10 out of those, but the E07K is probably a bit higher-quality DAC.

Thanks guys, I was guessing it too, but I needed a confirmation.

I don't trust most of my guesses. :D

 

Another question.

I have a mic problem on my laptop onboard audio.

Do you know if its possible to use the E07K as audio output and a cheap http://www.amazon.com/Syba-SD-CM-UAUD-Adapter-C-Media-Chipset/dp/B001MSS6CS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359014725&sr=8-1&keywords=usb+audio+adapter for mic input at the same time?

If we're talking Windows, I'm not sure how it handles output devices, but I'm sure you could have the Fiio selected as audio out and that card to be audio in.

If you're referring to Windows, I would say yes. In the sound settings, audio in and out are independent of one another so you'd be able to choose the E07k for the output and the USB device for the mic in.
