Have you looked at the FiiO D3 , by any chance? There is a couple negatives. Initially, after a few hours listening time, I’m finding the HD to be a more lush, more relaxed and laid-back, warmly clinical listen. This is very good performance:. The FiiO amplifying the line out is a huge improvement and also sounds much nicer than the iRiver amp. That is quite a welcome difference from my giant Yamaha HT receiver. Anonymous August 6, at 5:

The E11 in a way provides more current and voltage than many other portable amps, but the Senn is not exactly that difficult to drive it was, when amps were weak and puny 3 years ago, but not now.
NwAvGuy August 5, at 3: I bought this little device a long time ago and have never done a review on it. Bass Impact, your comment about the HD being a little treble happy, and your habit of low level listening.
Dno why you heard such massive differences when hooked up to your Ipod. It seems E10 doesn’t have virtual ground – http: I’m anxious to see what you have to say about the E Anyways, thanks to everyone for the feedback. The DAC itself is fiii free of problems here ddac the relatively benign 2nd order spike at 1 Khz: And one other thing: It’s a small, compact combo, and is extremely good.
Price may be a consideration here but not a hindrance. Akbar May 5, at 9: I know if I get the e7, I’d use the e9….
Does the E7 have other output beside its headphone out? The E7 has a number of user-selectable functions, including a selectable USB charging function to fio battery life, as well as a definable startup volume memory and maximum volume limiter to help prevent hearing damage due to loud volume levels.
NwAvGuy: FiiO E7 USB DAC & Amp
Some of the dScope defaults are not ideal. The Aux input is used to plug any other source into the E7, to use the E7 as a standalone amp. This may have reduced maximum output possible with a adc source connected. Again the TPA is showing its limitations: E7 has a technically perfect sound but without a life.
Let me know how the HD sounds to you. The other option would be to go for a 5.

Its noticeable on all of my headphones. They may be needing proprietary drivers which have proven a trouble spot in the pastbut so dsc USB devices with asynchronous transfers, e.
This little Dac-Amp never deceive me and the first time I try it it wasn’t a placebo effect that make me step off of my chair and yeal: How much of that is audible is less clear. S7 you want something with a nice volume control in a desktop box with pre-outs, that’s reasonably priced, and performs well, that’s harder to find. The amplifier has a standard 3.
I hope you will review it! The answer on the HDs is it depends on what music you like and how loud you want to listen. With less negative feedback available to correct errors, the distortion rises—sometimes dramatically. Thanks for the review, great to see some lab data.
It has a USB receiver from Texas Instruments, a Wolfson digital-to-analog converter, and an ADI amplifier to offer exceptional audio quality with low distortion and strong output. To those beginners or audiophiles on a budget, this is a very good buy imo.
