E12 on the other hand is a killer for its price but still it is not a TOTL amp either, but a great portable amp also it is not colored like E11.

LOL With all due respect, I was just messing around, haha.

Apologies if you took it the wrong way..I just thought with 36 pages of recommendations, one post to brighten up this forum wouldn't do too much harm. Guess I thought wrong, haha.

Easy there tiger


Btw, would the warmth of the E11 not pair not well with the brightness of the DX50? Seems like they'd meet in the middle rather well...

I managed to try out Fiio E17 (amp/DAC) with DX50.
However, the sound improvement is not that impressive.
The sound stage and detail is just slightly improved.
I would not recommend E17 to pair with DX50.

I'm fairly confident that the built in amp of the DX50 would be on par in to the E11, apart from the slight hiss, and less output power.

Also, pairing a cold sounding LO with a warm amp might sound like a good idea. But you'll probably end up with a strange collision of different flavors, than have a good pairing.

Well, it certainly wasn't clear from your post because the E11 is a sought after amp, but not quite up to snuff compared to the other gear mentioned here. So I have to agree with Amber on this.

 

Yes, we are way past fiio products on this thread :D

Did you use the E17 coax in or line in?

Let's not forget about the budget friendly C&C bh. I personally liked the DX50 paired with the C&C over the E12! You should have never sold yours. Haha. Are you going to purchase another one?

LineIn because I just wanted to bypass the internal amp. of DX50.

Well, after 2 weeks of back-and-forth emails with an online seller, Paypal payments sent and then refunded, I still don`t have my iBasso PB2 amp. Does anyone know where the hell I can get one of these?

Yup, they just told me that they have the parts they need now.

So I kinda ordered one.

Cool.  Could you kinda order one for me, too?  
Silver, please.  

 

But seriously, they`re shipping?  They said they`d email when they were available; did they notify you just recently?

I just got some time to burn this weekend. I thought I spent it making my own low profile connector for my DX50 C5D pair.

It's been a long while since the last time I worked with soldering stuff. I am rusty and completely thrashed my first attempt. The 2nd one is a success.

Nice, so what brand connectors did you butcher use?
