Everyone's first dac, the Fiio Olympus 2 E10k is a compact desktop dac for use with computers. It provides improved sound quality and more power, for full size and open headphones, than the typical sound card. E10k has a headphone out, line out for speakers or a larger amp, high (headphones) / low (earphones) gain selection and a bass boost option.
Great match for headphones like Ath m-50x, HD5-series Sennheiser and similar models.
i received the item last week, and my laptop did not plug and play with it. . .travis from headphone bar spent quite some time on the phone walking me through solutions, and got me pointed in the right direction. . .can't yet comment on the actual unit, but am very pleased with the shop's commitment to customer satisfaction and am looking forward to giving the e10k a proper tryout. . .
