Not at all a bad question xD FiiO built the EQ in the amplifier not in the DAC. Thus, when you bypass the amplifier, it will bypass the EQ too. If you really wish to use the EQ with the E09K, I believe you can just turn the E07K volume to MAX and then adjust the volume with E09K. Just don't forget to turn it back down when you are switching to E07K amplifier. 

 

How do you like your E07K and E09K combo? xD 

 

PS: I have tried switching off the E07K lo bypass when I use it with E09K once, just once, but the E07K was set at 12 volume and I have never tried using the E07K at more than 30 volume at highest gain or 40 volume at lowest gain.

Thanks Billson for your reply. The combo works great! I felt like my DT 990 and Q701s had a "second life" cuz they sound so much better than my laptop's onboard soundcard. 

 

In fact, my DT 990 and Q701 are still pretty new (both are under 30 hours of run time), but once I plug them onto the E09K I instantly felt the sound is just amazing!

 

I also have a HD 598, I've had it for 3 months. I think my 598 performed the best under this setup maybe cuz it is "more broken in" or simply cuz it is easier to drive. 

 

Overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase. With under 200 USD, this is probably the best bang for the buck.

 

Yes, also thank you Billson for your awesome review! I could not have made this right decision without your review.

and of course Chris for taking his time to answer my questions.

 

Thank you all!

I bought a Fiio E17 and Fiio E09K a while back and found out that I liked the E17 best in my Raspberry Pi (source), Bottlehead Crack system.   Boy but the E17 fits there like a glove.  So that kind of negated having the E09K.

 

So rather than let it gather dust I ordered a E07K and took it to work and hooked it to my HP 14 Chromebook.  I use it for low level listening in the office with Sony MDR-V6 headphones.  What a great little system it is.   Mostly streaming Pandora, Spotify, or TuneIn Radio. 

 

I'm blown away at how cheap a system it is and how fantastic it sounds.   We're living in a good time now.  There is some phenomenal brand new gear out there selling for dirt cheap.  Not the case when I first got into this hobby.

 

E09K and E07K are a great match.  

 

One tiny beef.  E07K comes with a cool rubber protective sleeve that won't fit in the dock of the E09K.  Small potatoes but the only negative I could think of.  Great gear.

Does the E17/E09k combo sound the same as the E07k/E09k combo?

I'd say they sound similar but not the same.  I'd have to listen to them side by side to tell you which one I liked best and I haven't yet done that.

Both the E17 and E07K use the same WM8740. DAC wise, both should be the same, but E17 will support higher bit rate [192k/24bit (E17) vs 92k/24bit (E07K)] but amplifier wise, both are not the same.

Does anybody know if there is an LOD which is micro usb to 3.5mm jack, the micro USB connected to a phone and the 3.5mm jack connected to my fiio e11? I see lots of LODs fiio sells for apple products, sansa players and sony Walkmans, but none i found are for mobile phones.

I need a micro USB to 3.5mm LOD to use with my samsung to override the internal amplifier.

I don't think it is possible. There is no line out for Samsung phone, but correct me if I am wrong. I have never owned any Samsung products.

I wonder why. They make those for iphones/ipods/ipads. I wonder why they cannot just make a micro usb to 3.5mm LOD for phones that use micro USBs like Samsungs, Nokias and Sonys

Basically, the USB of those mentioned does not bypass amplifier. Or maybe the USB have no interference with amplifier thus having a micro USB to 3.5mm is of maybe useless but Incould be wrong.

On the bright side,they have E18 which works with Andriod xD

so basically, if I don't turn the lo bypass on, im still using the E07K as a dac and amplifier even though my headphone is plugged into the E09K right?

The microUSB is a digital audio signal. You can't have that go to a 3.5 mm jack without a DAC. If you had an E07K you could probably connect the DAC portion of it to your phone through microUSB, which would bypass the phone DAC.
