Well I just ordered myself the FiiO E3 and E5 off Amazon. Totaling $30 free shipping. The E5 was $22.50 and the E3 was just $7.50. My hope is to test both in an attempt to remove audio noise / hiss while recording audio directly to my T3i from my HTDZ HT-320A shotgun mic. Which itself is just a cheap mic I picked up off of ebay for $32 free shipping from good ole China. Depending on what I find out after testing I will post a video outlining my results. Hope it works!
