If I'm converting my metric system to inches correctly, then yes, it's smaller and lighter. The bithead ins't huge, but it's really not something that you can just slip in your pocket along with a portable player and not notice it's there. At least not to me. It's kind of bulky and weighs a bit more.

Willing to take the chance. I hope I'm not wrong. I really don't like carrying ams with me. Cables and the extra bulk just make me feel like I am tied down. I'm a very active person, so less is more for me!

If this one doesn't work out so well, the pico slim looks like it would do just fine. Not sure where to buy one though.

This thing just LOOKS wise is great.

Thanks for the impressions. I need to grab a new amp with a Line Out cable, and this may be my choice. The site has a date of May 15th set.

Also, I am disappointed that they don't call look exactly like that, the NON SPECIAL EDITION doesn't look as great. The Grey front is meh. But it's not really about looks anyway.

I don't believe this has 3.5mm line out that you may be thinking, what you see are 2x headphone outs... if I read the first post correctly, the line out port will connect directly thru a dock to the E9.

Ask Dkft, he's paired them. I have 650's and ordered the E7 over TWO WEEKS AGO, but they are backordered at Dealextreme, at least I'll be getting a fresh one.

Can you use this as a usb-powered DAC/amp without using power from the battery? I'm looking for a dac/amp to use with my laptop, and I don't really need it to be battery powered unless I use it with a portable player.

^ I read somewhere in there that you can turn off the battery so it wont charge when connected to the computer... so it should run off the usb power...

Clie, can you provide any comparisons between the Icon Mobile and the E7?

post #148 of 195

The E7 can switch off the USB charge in the MENU, so it can improve the S/N( less hiss), and used in some special situation, for example, when connecting to iPad!

Yes, you can. Just change the setting in the menu to enable / disable USB charging at your wise.

Sorry, don't have Icon Mobile to compare to and I don't really think Icon Mobile will be any better than E7 SQ wise (I have seen picture of Icon Mobile inner).
