in the E18 is also a DAC, but the E12 might be the better amp, as it doesn't have to compromise.

I know that but for hd 598 which one is better ?
I use samsung tab 3.8.0
for waching film and listening to rock music.

Well, the DAC in the E18 is probably better than the Tab's built-in one so there's a boost right away. The E18 amp isn't quite as powerful as the E12 but it's more than enough for most headphones you're likely to use with a portable device.

Has anyone had any recent luck using a Nexus 5 (stock, Android 5.1, no custom ROM) and the Fiio E18?  Thanks!

Where should I look for characteristics of pcm 1798 chip? (Im interested in large music scene width and better dynamics.)

Just got an E18k to replace my E7. So far I'm happy except I randomly get very quiet static when the 3.5mm plug swivels.

Hardware is OnePlus One -> E18k (gain and bass is off or low) -> headphones.
Software is stock cyanogen OS with latest updates and using Poweramp (full version).

I tried using my UE Triplefi10, AudioTechnica M50, and Denon D7100 but they all seem to have static when the 3.5mm jack swivels. I get no static when using my Denon 300USB DAC with any of my headphones. The Triplefi10 being most prone to this random static. Could be coincidence but it's most noticeable when it's in between tracks or playing youtube... strangely and fortunately, it seems to be just fine when it's playing music via Poweramp software.

Anyone else have this issue?

Okay, just found this link on fiio... Are these really that prone to interference from my phone? I don't think my E7 was like this...

PS: Went through this thread but I hope this isn't a topic already covered.

What are the main advantages (or not) to using the Kunlun with an Android phone vs the  Alpen 2 E17-K? Which one generally has the better audio quality and ease of use?

I have a Swans M10 powered speaker unit.. Can I connect the input of those to the e18 output?
