Alright I'm using the E18 as a DAC for my Schiit Magni (I know I know I should use the Modi) but comparing the line out volume of my CD player the E18 is really quiet. Should I use the headphone amp and turn it up a bit? Didn't think it'd be wise to double amp but this low volume is sort of annoying.
FiiO E18 line out sort of quiet?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
hmmm, maybe check on the E18 thread. To me maybe its just a lose connection. Have you tried a different dac with the magni and it powers your headphone fine? The magni can drive many headphones really loud, often not needing to crank the volume pot past 11.
