I now use the E3 exclusively with both my MDR-NC60 and MDR-NC22 phones, to add the moderate power boost as well as much needed bass and tame the otherwise over-exaggerated treble.

As for a clip for the E5, later this afternoon, I will try adding a clip onto the back of my E3 (a mod job that just requires a little Krazy Glue or equivalent), the clip being from one of my old Sony MD/CD remotes (from a black Sony RM-MC33L that came with one of my D-NE700 PCDP, not needed as I have a color-matched RM-MC33EL to match my silver D-NE700), and I'll post pics of the finished product on both the FiiO-related topics.

After a round of PM, FiiO admin James told me the company does have plan to invite a few head-fi'ers for an early preview of their E5 before the release. No name was mentioned, but he seem to have a good idea of whom to invite (he reads our forum too). We shall wait and see.

Ask him if he'd do discounts for big group buys?

Is he willing to set a release date yet?

The problem is the company doesn't seem to do oversea business directly (that's where DealExtreme comes in). Not release date is set, AFAIK.

Well it will be interesting to see the evolution of the amps from this company.

I wonder when will they try to jump into the really high-end stuff, or would they rather specialize in affordable, extremely small amplifiers.

I just realized something: The rechargeable battery means they'd have to ship it out with a power adapter unless its USB. This would really push costs up.

You can get small switching power supplies for the charging at very reasonable price in China, so I don't think this will be a problem, cost wise. It will make a little larger package though. Someone that in innovative could also make a small wall adapter not much bigger than the current amp.

I agree. If I'm using an amp, it will be velcroed to my player in as compact a bundle as possible. Extraneous clips are a no-no for me. Very curious to see this E5 in the wild...

Good news, it's gonna be great.

New FiiO amp already? Can't wait to hear impressions when it is released.
post #45 of 1737
An upstart pumps out more amps with less time between revisions than a Xin Supermicro? Will the gods of head-fi allow this?

Can't wait to get an E5 - this FiiO company seems to respond to customer demand and feedback.
