    err. might be a stupid question. I just bought the standalone fiio e9 and I connected it up via usb to my netbook.

    How do you play music to the amp from my netbook? 'cos when I press play now, it just does it through my netbook speakers rather than through usb.

    Do I need to buy a line to connect my netbook to 'line out' at the back of my e9 or something?

    The FiiO E9 is a headphone amplifier. You would need a FiiO E7 to stream music from a PC/Mac USB to the E9.
