How did I miss this thread?
It's so exciting to see both the E11 and the new DAP products becoming public knowledge. Based on what I've seen from FiiO, the E11 is intended to do for portable headphones what the E9 did for full size headphones: excellent audio performance and plenty of power.
I really like the final design, the two-tone case and industrial design is very retro-cool looking. The volume knob being enclosed by the frame is such a nice touch, good to look at as well as being very functional.
The E7 remains a better choice for those that want a portable DAC solution, but if headphone amplifier is all that you need, then the E11 provides better results as well as being cheaper!
Can't wait to get this in...
