The FiiO E10 is a good amp and DAC. It does not produce interference cause by other electronics when plugged directly to a computer USB. It features a coax out and line out for integration with an active sound system and has great volume.
I personally found the bass boost to muddy the sound and would have appreciated a bass boost on a gradient scale rather than a preset. Aside from the preset EQs, the reproduction is neutral and noticeably clean.
Regarded on its merits alone, the E10 is a great value. Unfortunately, taking a comparative approach, the E10 falls far behind other amp/dac units by the same manufacturer; namely, the E7 and most drastically the E17. These are far more complete and detailed units that are completely portable.
I would recommend the E10 if you absolutely cannot get your hands on the E17 (or the slightly less impressive E7).
