This is the response that I have got from FiiO CS

 

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for your mail and support to FiiO!

Regarding to your problem, we suggest you use a tool to press your E18's reset hole then change another usb otg cable to have a try. Pls make sure each connection is good contact. 
Or you can purchase an USB OTG cable, then connect the supplied usb cable to the USB OTG cable to realize another micro-micro USB cable, like the attached picture. 

We suggest you use the built-in player. Pls try to move the bottom switch to CHG then move it back to "Phone in" to have a try. 

In theory, the E18 can compatible with HTC one m8. 

 

In theory lol...

in theory...Oh boy...rolleyes.gif
I find it funny that despite the fact the m7 is used in the illustrations on their website, I'm still uncertain of its compatibility... I think I'm just paranoid. plus I was considering upgrading to the m8... oh well, we'll see.

The thing is it use to be compatible with the m7 until the firmware update...That stupid firmware update messed it all up. I really don't want to use the stock music player...

How does this compare to the C5D? I'm debating between the two. 

post #200 of 203

Hey everyone,

 
I think this is my first post but I wanted to mention two things:
 
1. This is my amp/dac that I got for my V-Moda Crossfade M-100 and I've been mostly pleased, more on that later. It makes my M100s sound far better than they do through my laptop's (macbook w/retina) internal card. By this I mean that the bass hits HARD, if I turn it up my cans WILL shake. I found the mids on the M100s a bit weak and the E18 certainly improves them. The highs are also clearer. 
The main thing that I noticed was the sound is wider, if that's the right word. What I mean is that everything sounds more separated; when I rewatch Futurama or Archer, I can hear sounds that I'd not heard before and they are more isolated from the rest of the noises. I'm not really an audiophile on the same level as a lot of this forum so I can't go deeper into the sound than I have. I can appreciate good sound when I hear it though.
 
2. The dac and charger work with the Moto X. I just got my Moto X since ATT has then cheap right now and I was concerned if my E18 would work since it had not worked with my Nexus 4 and I HAD to run cyanogen mod for it to work with my Nexus 5.
My Moto X is running stock with whatever the latest update is.

Hello, does the e18 work while charging at the same time? no issues of distortion or noise?

 

is it also possible to disable the bat and just plug this in like a permanent usb powered dac/amp?

I guess playing hirez content on Android phones is a bit of a cumbersome affair at the moment (at least for Samsung). With the advent of "Android L" this should become easy and out of the box.

I noticed that the E18 does NOT support 88.2kHz samplerate. In my view this seriously limits the future proof of the E18 with regard to hirez content. Does anyone have any info from fiio about a firmware upgrade that might fix this?

Thanks and regards

Rudi

Good point.

 

The E18 is a year old and the E17 is almost 2 years old now.  So surely FiiO will be coming out with something soon that supports hirez?  Would love some inside information teasers if anyone had any.
