Picked up one of these today, am hooked, must say am pretty impressed for a hundred bucks. Be it on usb from the computer or on my android this thing rocks. FLAC files sound amazing.

I take it you're using it with headphones right? (what it's made for). Do you mind testing it with speakers and telling me if it makes much of an improvement?

The E07K is great comparing to just stock sound card on my laptop. I used an ATH-M50 and I could hear stronger bass and more clear sound. I tried to use an OTG microUSB cable to hook up my Nexus4 but it didn't work...

Couldn't get the e9 locally so ended up buying both the e07k and the e09k. Power on this amp is serious. The 2 in combination sound very good to me when listening to music, flac files on both audio technica's headphones that I have. Its a pretty good dac/amp combo for the price. Picked it up at headphone shop on young st. north of lawrence.

I've got an E10 I use sometimes (Auzentech Forte is the main) which I thoroughly enjoy, especially considering what I payed for it. I do have to say though that for gaming, the Forte is better, in terms of sound depth and quality (may have to do with the Creative proprietary driver and stuff though)
