FiiO E11 Unboxing And Impressions from MP4NATION

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Got my E11 in yesterday, and finally got a chance to open it up.                Posted: Tue Jun 21, 2011 5:25 pm 

The package:

The case it comes in. Very nice:

That "button" on the bottom is the battery cover release. If you look closely on the lower left of the case, you can see a slot to insert your fingernail into, to pull the cover off while depressing the button:

A quite delicious combination:

Been using it a bit. I hooked it up to my Fuze first, but didn't like the sound coming out. Not the amps fault, I just have my settings on the Fuze, and the E7 to go hand in hand.

Then I plugged my N2 into it. Yep, this is where it's at. I was still partial to my Fuze, but now it could easily head the other direction. I have my N2 set on one of the BBE settings. MP I believe it is. Set the E11 to position 2 on the bass boost switch. (the bass boost is subtle, but still a notable difference) Freakin' excellent. I can't believe the sound difference.

The gain was set on low, but I set in on high for even better sound. I do notice a little hiss between songs with it set on high, but doesn't bother me in the least bit. As long as I can't hear it during the song, no problem.

This amp was a prize, so the price was right, of course, but even if I wouldn't have won it, I would still buy one. If you own a Nationite N2, you wouldn't be disappointed in the difference it makes. Still new to it, but I'm very impressed with this little device.

That's my review. Nice that it was posted here, ABI, and the FiiO site, but I would think one would at least ask first. Oh well, it is the internet.

I'm very anxious to get my hands on one of these to see how it matches up to the E7!
