The FiiO E17 and the L9 cable in one bundle. You asked for it - AVshop delivers.
FiiO E17 INFO: The FiiO E17 Alpen portable headphone amplifier with USB audio decoder (DAC) is designed for dual-functionality. The E17 Alpen both replaces PC on-board sound cards as the primary audio decoder which can lead to an increase in audio quality as well as provide high quality sound amplification and drive high-powered high-end headphones. The E17 Alpen supports different inputs including optical and coaxial. The E17 Alpen is a step up from the older FiiO E7 providing a wider support for various input devices as well as overall more functionality and control. The E17 Alpen was built to be a much more complete product than the E10. The most significant addition was the ability for it to serve as a portable headphone amplifier. With batteries built into the Alpen you can unplug it from USB and take it for a spin together with your iPod. In addition to that they also added features such as coaxial and toslink digital inputs. The Alpen is the successor to the E7 and there are great improvements on aspects other than just the sound.

As a DAC. Works great. Have used both USB and Optical inputs with great outcomes. 32bit audio sounds sweet.
As a headphone amp. Again works fab. Use it on some daily basis with my Sennheiser HD 25-1 II's with a great sounding outcome. I've always left the gain at 0db and the sound is very clean. Has more than enough power even with gain so low. Never go over 50/60. Big cans shouldn't have a problem here. EQ adds a little shine to the sound for those who like some more punch.
So whatever your primary use for the E17 I highly doubt you'd be disappointed. Great sounding product in a well made and attractive package. Dare I say it but audiophile like quality on the move. Happy days.
The build quality is good and the unit itself is easy to use. The bundled package with the LOD Cable is essential for use with any iDevice as it sounds much better with this rather than plugging into the headphone jack.
It's still not too big to carry around and fits in the inside chest pocket on my jacket along with the phone with no issues.
Overall sound quality is excellent and well worth the upgrade.
It's very well built and is a steal at £99. I was so impressed I decided to go all out on a pair of higher impedance full over-ear headphones (AKG Q701's) which my Apple gear wouldn't have the power drive. I am now in audio heaven playing full lossless from iTunes on these amazing phones through my amazing E17. Even without optical on the iPad it is awesome. Can't recommend this little powerhouse highly enough!
I don't know who makes the mistake but my review about Fiio E17 is completely different.
My test setup is:
- Fiio E17 connected via USB to my laptop playing music from Foobar 2000 (through WASAPI plugin).
- Audio files are FLAC and high bitrate MP3's (most of them 320kbps)
- Sennheiser HD 555 headphones are used for the listening
I compared Fiio E17 with:
1. My laptop's audio output
2. Ainol Novo 7 Flame tablet
3. Ipod touch 3rd gen.
The results are:
My laptop's audio output is so crappy that everything else surpasses it significantly.
Between Fiio and my Ainol tablet, the tablet is the winner for one reason: It has a fuller sound especially in the midrange.
I 've really spent many hours in listening to the same songs in both devices in order to decide which one is better.
Finally I concluded that the voices lack body and presence in Fiio which restricts the listening pleasure to bass, treble and detail because the only advantage for Fiio is that is it gives better detail and instrument separation.
This means that if you listen to classical music only, Fiio is clearly the winner. But in songs that involve vocals, Fiio loses easily from Ainol.
I found unacceptable that a device that costs about 100 pounds to have such a problem with the midrange and I sent it back to Amazon for a refund.
Finally, Fiio in comparison to the Ipod's native audio output is much better in clarity, detail and instrument separation but loses again in the midrange. Fiio wins in total but I still don't understand the Fiio's "cheap" midrange.

i like it for the features and build quality.

Absolute rubbish. Think it may be a duff model, but never got past charging endlessly. Despite resetting, the red button stayed on and never went to blue. Read morePublished on 18 July 2013 by Andy Smith
Excellent DAC Amplifier for portable devices.
Had an older model, but this one surpasses it in quality of sound. I recomend.
Very pleased with this little Amp (and DAC). It provides good batterylife and has a low noise, even when powered by USB. Read morePublished on 25 April 2013 by Jeroen Breden
