Hey, I have a home setup using a MBP 2012, USB connected to a Fiio E9/E17 with my HD650s mostly. For the longest time I wasn't even aware there was an option to bypass the LO on the E17, and I'm assuming I was double amping the entire time between the two.
I was wondering what the best configuration/setup I should use for the Fiio E9 and E17 connected to it, to best drive the HD650s. I turned on the LO bypass, which has changed things quite a bit... though now none of the EQ settings on the E17 do anything it seems. I was also wondering how I should setup the gain options between the two.
I'm pretty amateur in terms of all of this, so any advice will be appreciated.
Edit: Another thing, when I first got the setup i remember reading someone would max volume the macbook and the E9's dial, so I've been mostly adjusting vol. through the media player I'd use. I never understood whether this did anything significant, but that's also something I'd like to know about; how I should setup the volume between the media player used, the macbook, and the amp.
