post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
Just read this article about the new Fiio E10 USB DAC/Amp. Its supposedly cheaper and better than the Fiio E7 that it succeeds.

My E7 doesn't work any more and it's too much hassle to send it back for RMA, but this is certainly tempting...

Looking good. Another solid product from FiiO.

 

I'm still waiting on the E17 since the common complaint is that the E7 is what's holding back the E9.

I wonder how powerful its amp is, I have no plans for it  just curious.

As per James in the FiiO sponsor thread, it hasn't been released yet. Headfonia got a hold of one early for review.

I was excited...until I saw that it has no line-in or internal battery.  So I suppose it's not really an E7 replacement.  In fact, it doesn't truly compete with it at all, depending on your needs (i.e., a DAC/Amp that you can take on the road with your iPod).  

 

This seems great for those who had been using an E7+E9 for a low-cost desktop dac/amp setup and know they never plan to travel.

The output is comparable to that of E11. Not as powerful as E9 but still plenty of power around.

No battery, but it does have a 3.5mm line-out jack on the back.

Updated some newest information about E10, 

 

We just start to test and solder some parts which can not be soldered by SMT machine, but the potentionmeter still stay in Hong kong and waiting to be clean customs. so we may not ship out E10 before the end of this month.

 

That means the ETA will delay to 10th Oct because we will have a long holiday for our National Day from 1th Oct to 5th Oct.

Looks to be a direct competitor to the uDAC-2, for $50 less.  Intriguing.

Don't know about the uDAC2, but E10 is better than my uDAC alright.
