Ak100 and amplifier

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I'm getting the AK100 and wanted to know if it was possible to connect it to a portable amp like the Fiio E12?

 

I heard it does not have a line out like the X3 or Dx50. So the question is, do I need to get an external Dac/Amp and if so, would that mean I would bypass the internal DAC on the AK100?

 

Thanks

Just use phone out but dont set the vol to max, tune the vol to your liking... Its double amping but someone measured that theres no distortion..

Another alternative is to get it mod to line out only at red wine audio

3rd option is to add a optical input dac to get true line out

Last and recommended option is to just buy a dx50 instead,thanks

Using the headphone out at full volume on the AK100 will give you a lineout. I do this with mine and its awesome smily_headphones1.gif
