How is the battery? As beastly as the e7?
Tempting product... I just don't know if I will full utilize it as I mainly use the setup as docked/desktop. The improvement in the DAC might be nice...
I do like the switch option between pre amp and true line out so the EQ can be utilized on the e17.
thanks, the bad news is that the battery life will be about 12 hours even we use bigger battery , because the new chip sets need higher power .
BTW, the DAC chip will be the same as E7 , which is WM8740, partly because it is good enough for a portable device and we need to control the cost and the battery life. I will release a new thread after one month, because I hope
people can focus in our E6, E10, E11 but not a new amp which will be released after 3 months, but good thing is there are lots of innovative feature in E17, also you can expect a noticeable improvement in SQ
