For those of you who are new to learn about DAC and amp be it from reading the article or from a variety of sources to watch videos on Youtube, you’re definitely a jaudl and you will also definitely have questions laymen to the bird lovers there. The question is what difference it’s possible votes from the AudioEngine Fiio E10k D1 and that in fact is one of the best known product of Fiio E10 a bit far from AudioEngine. Is there a difference significant? due to its price far enough away to be embedded.
Audioengine D1, first of all, it works well with optical sources and the second, it is the RCA pair at the back, which make it is really easy to hook up to your favorite amp, HiFi, or TV. For Mac and Windows user, all you can do is just plug and play or you have to do some sort of driver stretch. The volume pot is nice to have even if it looks like a gumdrop and it also resamples information higher than 96kHz to 192kHz. It does it flawlessly. It requires no tricks. It preserves the D1’s great plug’n play heritage. AudioEngine D1 comes with smudges, fingerprints, and an ‘inspected’ sign. Would I carry it with me if I had a laptop? Probably not. It’s nice, but so is room for another camera battery. Overall feeling that can say is AudioEngine didn’t exactly nail the whole package beyond making what is obviously and violently serviceable.
If you plug in the USB cable with Fiio E10, it plays a familiar tunes in Itunes, plug a headphone in, and will listen to the newest DAC from Fiio. It has a good sounds and the ALO continental amplifier review less than 24 hours ago. It is featured with Full mids, good bass, spacious open sound, and unoffensive treble. The bass is not super-articulate compared to say an AMB Labs Mini3, but it’s tight enough for music listening purposes and the most important thing is that the bass is just fun. Punchy, round, a lot of fun. Turn off the bass boost and you get extra clarity in the bass section, but with the HD25-1. And the last but not least the midrange is just nice and full sounding. No complaints there, really. It’s not ALO Continental – level midrange, but for $80 it better be not ALO Continental level midrange.

The only DAC/AMP that we can find decent reviews on is Fiio E10 and the AudioEngine D1, for my price range. We are not sure what sound advantages AudioEngine D1 has to justify 90$ more. We have found and heard that Fiio E10 would be plenty sufficient. Do they have different sounds like one better than the other for certain music? ASIO drives sound a little on the bright side with some music. People will like a warmer sound however.
