    i ordered a mullard from ebay awhile ago, both bravo v2 and mullard will arrive in 2 days. now all i need is know what type of cable i need to connect my fiio e10 to bravo v2 and laptop.
    so i only need use the cable provided by bravo v2 to connect my fiio e10 n then fiio e10 cable to my laptop?

    You need a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm or RCA male, as I don't think Bravo Audio gives you cables. Other than that, you also need the USB cable that came with the E10 for digital output from your laptop.

    the bravo v2 include the following as listed on amazon
    1. Parallel 3.5mm and RCA stereo inputs

    Yeah, INPUTS. That means the jacks on the back.

    The Fiio E10 has a USB input, and a Coaxial or line output on the back panel:

    So you need a USB cable to hook it to your computer.
     
    You have a couple ways to hook it to the Bravo. The Bravo's inputs are via either two RCA inputs, or one 3.5mm headphone jack. It appears from this photo that your line out on the Fiio is a 3.5mm jack. So I guess the easiest thing to do would be to get a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. Or, you could get a Coaxial to RCA cable and hook it up that way. Or you could get a 3.5mm to RCA cable. Whether any of those options is better than the other, is an open question.

    Good job, nice review! [​IMG]
     
    I would be very interested in hearing your inputs on mods, if/when you perform them. The Mosfets should be a simple matter; replacing the caps will be more challenging (staying inside that very cute chassis). I wonder if they use the same parts as the V2's.
     
    I have the parts for modding one of my V2's now, but due to work responsibilities I haven't had the time yet. Hopefully by the end of the month. I went with the recommendations on the rockgrotto.proboards.com thread, and the caps are HUGE. Lol. I am fully expecting to have to either drill big holes to accommodate them, or leave the top plate off entirely. I'm actually leaning towards leaving it off entirely, to help with cooling.
     
    Another reason I have two V2's is so I can mod one, and compare it to the original.

    It will be great to hear your opinion on modding too.
     
    I will probably only mod it next month when i have some money :)

    hey guys, my bravo v2 have finally arrive together with the cable. i tested it with my fiio e10 and wow, huge different compare to only using fiio e10, the sound is super sweet i almost cry out of tears. i just sold couple of my old books and now i have a couple hundred bucks to spare, can anyone recommend me some good dac to pair with bravo v2? also include all the cable that i need to purchase together with the dac. 
     
    im currently checking out schiit modi

    I think ODAC might be a good choice as well although I haven't heard it personally.
     
  14. razor5cl
    Also, which cable did you get in the end?
