D2+ with Fiio E5 - What is the "magic setting"?
I have had my D2+/E5 for almost 2 months now and so far loving it. Just one little thing that concerns me is the volume settings. I have searched through the forum a lot to find out how my volume should be set up to get the best output. Some people suggest to set the source volume to the highest possible to get the best output from a source/amp combo. But this is not necessarily true for the D2+ as I hear A LOT of crackling when I do that, even with a very low volume on E5. On the other hand, if I put D2+ to a low volume setting and put E5 on high, I hear a bit of hiss when nothing is playing from the E5. Some people have also suggested that "34" is the magic volume for D2+. However, I feel that is not loud enough for me as I hear hissing from E5 in if I put it to something too high. Some people have also suggested not to use too much of BBE/Mach3Bass as that distorts the sound.So my question is, am I missing something? I am using head-direct RE0 IEMs btw.
