FiiO E11 - Impression + Information + Support - Page 3

post #31 of 1229

Does the E11 change vocals? If so, how? I am interested in this because it's what I love about my Miracle :) Can't wait till it's released.

To be honest, I think FiiO shed away the “toys” designator with the E9 – an incredibly good desktop amp. Not just for the money – just an incredibly good desktop amp. If they’d slapped a £500 price tag on it and created a new name to market it all the “audiophiles” would be slavering over that one too IMO.

 

I’m interested in features though – does this have auto power on when receiving a signal?

This is very good news. rolleyes.gif

 

I'll reserve judgement for the full review, but in the meantime I'm curious about this lo/hi-current switch. I already knew that the AD8397 had two current modes from reading up on the Arrow, but I didn't realise that FiiO were giving any way to change the modes. On top of the gain and bass settings, there seems to be a number of ways to tune it to your own tastes in terms of battery life, tone and power. Could we get a picture of this illusive switch, please?

 

Thanks for these impressions. Know my jealousy.

From what I understand, it was ClieOS's remark that the Arrow had two different current modes that gave them the idea to implement this switch.

 I am excited

It gets better and better. The bass boost that is mostly sub bass sounds really good. That is the most subwoofer type of sound. When I boost the midbass via EQ too much, the sound just gets thick and yucky.

how do they sound with the gr07. I so wanna get 1 now.

ClieOS will have a hard time answering all there  ovewhelming  queries.    tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

Great impressions, I'm looking forward do your full review!

 

 

Also, a bit off topic, but have you heard anything recent about the progress of the RE272? I know it's been up on your blog for quite some time as a possible review.

PJBOX in the UK will be getting a shipment of 40 E11s in next Thursday.

 They still have some available according to the chap I spoke to. I've ordered one - it comes to about £45 inc delivery.

Do you think the E7-DAC (on my run-of-the-mill Acer laptop) sound better than the E11-amp on [iPhone3G/iPad2] with LOD?

 

(If so, I'll wait for the E11 instead of getting the E7 now.)

Depends on what headphones you have, but probably not.  The amp components used in the E11 are on another level compared to those in the E7.  The E7's strengths are more in its excellent DAC.

Nice first impressions! Really liked the T3D, looking forward to the E11!

post #44 of 1229

clieos, can you make the comparison between e11 and mini3? i believe they share similar circuit and signal opamp..

post #45 of 1229

Well, here's a few more queries.  

 

1-So the detail and resolution improves w/ gain?  Any loss of source transparency or clarity as you engage high gain?

 

2-Any idea what the voltage swing is and what sort of current it puts out per channel?

 

3-Does it get warm and how warm?

 

4-Is it actually using a pseudo balanced ground topology?

 

Thanks.
