I have a question about the upcoming E9. Would it be possible to have socketed opamps so we can switch them? Otherwise, may I suggest AD797BR or LT1028A

Yes, the E9 will come with socket for the OP amp! so user can replace the OP, but only for pre-amp, the main amplifier IC may be TPA6120A!

Wow that is nice. Is there any chance to also get socketed main amp?

Also, any word on the availability?

TPA6120A is in SOIC (surface mounted) package, so socket is out of question. However, given that it is marketed by TI as Hi-Fi headphone amp, I don't think you need to worry too much about its performance,

Well that's not strictly true. You could always put it on a DIP adapter and then in a socket. What's more important, I just checked and the TPA6120A is 20pin, so normal 8pin opamps likely would not help you much anyhow. Edit: especially not as they want to solder it to thermal land on the PCB (IOW, it would likely fry on an adapter)

From the specs, it should be a good enough amp, indeed

two questions:
-Is the E7 in those pictures a pre-pre-production unit (mirror front - changed to aluminum i think)
-Will there be a Line out Dock for the E7 so we can use our own headphone amp?

The picture is the latest look.
Use the E9, meet your needs.
