That is enough for a day or a long ride (I take breaks from listening, etc).



Fully agreed

 

Replaceble batteries is an excellent idea James!

The amp sounds promising and I love the idea of a replaceable phone battery. Back when the e200 series came out from SanDisk I thought more manufactures would follow suit with their replaceable battery, surely a shame they haven’t. I don’t believe apple would on their DAP’s as it keeps most of the mass public buying new products rather than replacing a battery, surely a shame cause if they did I’d be willing to be most others would follow … Good move on your part Fiio, wonder if your DAP battery will be replaceable as well?

 

BTW it’s never too late to re-evaluate the FW, rockbox rocks!!!

It is not we don't wants, it is we don't sure we can! it is not a universal solution, we just do what we can!

Feiao, I wish you success on both the E11 and the new DAP.  Hopefully the UI on your new DAP is a success, but for future reference if any company is in a position to implement Rockbox into their device it would be yours.  Your willingness to work with the audio community directly is part of your success.  How cool would it be for FiiO to be the first to partner with Rockbox!?

 

Hopefully your UI will be warmly-received by all, but if not I think you have the blessing of the Head-Fi community at large for a viable alternative.

I have to say, I've been pretty impressed with your collaboration w/ the forum on a number of products.  I was never planning on moving past the E5 in your lineup but your involvement and commitment are compelling.  I'll be hard pressed not to try out your E11 or DAP.  Keep it up.

post #126 of 1326

I will be hard pressed not to try the DAP for sure. I probably will try it sometime. The value I have seen Fiio display is amazing.

I definitely second the post about sound quality coming FIRST, the rest comes later.

 

As for the voltage switch, I'm still new to that much, but how would it work?  How would I know which setting I should have it in in relation to my headphones?

post #128 of 1326

10 hours is totally fine with me, I never listen more than that on a single day.

Need something to amp my ER4P, go Fiio !

AD8397 is one of those opamp that can be used on lower voltage (in exchange for some performance of course). You should start from lower voltage then switch it to high voltage (no on the fly though) and compare the two. If you didn't find much difference on the headphone you use, keep it to low voltage.

Feiao, i hope in the future you're willing to make a portable amp that is comparable to ibasso D4 in sound wise, while retaining the sleek design in E11 :)

Well, some say the Arrow bests the D4 soundwise so if the E11 sounds close to the Arrow......

how do you know E11 sounds close to arrow? using the same opamp doesn't mean will share the same quality..

 

for example, audinst HUD-MX1 shares the same DAC chip as CA Dacmagic or Gamma2..but they sound totally in a different league and different price range as well

 

*sorry i'm not following the whole thread so this is what i can conclude

I said 'if'.  

 

I'm not in the mood to debate being taken out of context right now.  Enjoy.

Heh...

 

Back in 2007 I got some RE2 with a free E3. Nice gadget I tought...

 

Now, for the K702 and DT990/600 I got the E7/E9 combo...

 

Can you stop making nice gear that I want to try please? :P

 

Definitely, a rockbox DAP would rock, since is a very goooood interface... anyway, you stated before that is not in the plans.

 

And about E11... Well, just do your magic, and make a wonderful and very powerful portable amp plz :)
