That's what I currently have in mine, it took a bit of modding to get it in the amp.

I have both the LME49720NA and HA (on adapter) as well. Can't really tell the difference much so I keep it simple with the NA.

The charging function is not working.

As currently when I turn it on , It will not even stay on for 5 sec.

Did you enquire FiiO about the labor charge involved? Is it a flat or its like labor + parts? I believe they charge a flat charge+shipping and send you the mother board kit,instead you send them the defective as its not cost effective for both and also little more transit time involved both ways......

I sent them Email in the last two days, no reply yet.

 

but i am enjoying the Second E12 DIY which works great

with so many DAP coming ,

which one will work better with E12 Diy?

 

X5?X3? DX50 ?

post #952 of 1503

I guess that I've tried all the choices (except opa604).  My choice is opa1611 + buf634.

For piano solo I still prefer E12 Montblanc.

The buf634 is a clear winner for me.

opa: also liked the AD797. However it gives more air and better separation at cost of the right tone. A piano should sound like a piano and not a toy... 

 

I'm using the amps to drive HD650. 

Sources: ipod nano 2G w/ rockbox and iphone4 w/ onkyo HD player.

 

Listening to the cx300 direct from source makes me think that I'm still short of power to drive the HD650...

 

Wondering if opa627 or LME49720 or Muses add something.

 

Or it's time to think about desktop amp - compass2 or violectric hpa v90.

Define 'better'?

 

Well, as far as which one benefits the most, I'll say DX50 >= X3 > X5. DX50 benefits the most because it has the weakest amp section, which by far is its biggest weakness IMO and why an good amp really helps. X3 benefits almost as much / slightly less because while it doesn't lack power, it can benefit from the more neutral presentation of E12DIY. X5 benefits the least as it is both neutral and well powered, so there is less for E12DIY to contribute - but this is not to say X5 + E12DIY isn't wonderful sounding as well.

sorry i should be asking , between these three dap dx50,x3,x5

which one will sound the best with e12 diy,

just the way the dap that i am using is the hm601

 

the 601 sound ok with e12 and it works fine , but does it worth it for me to get one of those new dap?

 

the main headphone with this setting will be the alpha dog

I'll say X5 will be the most noticeable upgrade over HM601, followed by DX50, then X3, which has the most similar sound to HM601, but edge out over overall power and a little on transparency.

Hi all,

 

Does anybody know if the Muses from Amazon.com which are being sold by CPM Accessories are authentic?

 

Also am a bit surprised that the Muses 01 is priced at $49.99 but Muses 02 is prices at $99.99 (2 pcs set however).

 

Don't we need just a single piece for either Muses 01 or 02?

Many thanks!

Rene

Seems like they are selling a lot of random parts on Amazon. I really won't put much stock on them.

post #958 of 1503

Many thanks once again ClieOS! If it were not for your answer I would've ordered the Muses from Amazon.

Still the best to get all these from specialised shop like Mouser or Akizudenshi

If you're in the US and plan on getting Muses01 and Muses02 at the same time, ordering from Akizukidenshi is much cheaper, but you probably need to order through Tenso.
