Fiio should really be advertising this, because it's a MAJOR departure from the product that it replaces.
I had an E7, which gloriously bypassed Windows mixer on ANY computer without installing drivers and messing with settings. I go and purchase the "upgraded' unit that replaces the E7 and lo and behold it's just like any other ****ty USB audio device, subject to Windows mixer.
I'm sure people will say install Foobar or ASIO4All, well what about people that frequently use other peoples computers, or more importantly, work computers running Windows XP? I used to be able to have a great audio experience on those systems. Not now.
Great, $90 down the toilet, thanks FIIO.
