How I wish to know the China guy who make this amp - it's a poor thing he have to work long hours at daytime and then go back home making amps. He deserve some warm words from his amp users.
Yeah, I could not figure out why my first MB would not hold a charge. Bad battery I guess. I was not a heavy user, but for sitting around at home, awesome. I think the switches look better too, but oh well.

I didn't realize that MiniBox-E+ is getting harder to find now. Must be my luck that I got one from Head-Direct practically without any wait time (buy today and gets shipped tommorow).

If you know somebody in Hong Kong that would be useful

I have to agree with the review, the Minibox has been a great amp. It goes well with pretty much all of my headphones.

I may have to look into rolling opamps too now, thanks guys.

EFN, were you able to get the AD797 to work?

Yep, the PtoS and Bass option does help to make MiniBox-E+ adapt to practically any cans easily.


On the other hand, my MiniBox-E+ will be undergoing some tough times ahead, my Lisa III is being packaged and shipped as I write this. I can imagine the sweats coming out of the amp LOL! I just have to do it, Lisa III has been a legend even before it was available for sale almost 2 years ago, and I must put an end to that sleepless nights wondering how the Lisa III sounds like.

So how would a MiniBox-E+ fare against a giant? find out more the weeks ahead, I promise to write about it in details.


EDIT:
mrarroyo, not yet. I have not retried, been out with family enjoying cinemas

Man, you are going to heaven no doubt about it. I mean, you rather be with the family at the cinema than listening to music.

Hmm I might want to get one too. Did a size comparison and its almost the SAME EXACT size as my D2. Might actually be easier to strap together and carry around then an E5

Yea, it's a shame the SFOR feature is no longer available on the new amps. It works great on some phones.

Lisa III. ER4S. You're in for a very very wonderful treat EFN.

What do you guys think about the build quality of this amp? Since the P-51 is built like a tank, will this one be flimsy if I carry it around a lot?

Also, is this amp good enough to be a home replacement like the LISA 3?

You will know soon enough. Like I said earlier, a Lisa III is coming my way. In another 3 weeks I should be able to post my impressions on MiniBox-E+ Vs. Lisa III.


I dunno about others, but the MiniBox-E+ is anything but flimsy. And yes RSA will always win on tough enclosure, and I think only the Diablo can beat RSA on toughness. But are we talking about SQ or asthetics here?

EFN, I'm looking forward to your ER4S-Lisa impressions.

edit: Can't wait for my APS-ER4P cable from APureSound.
