US Availability for FiiO E17

post #1 of 145
Thread Starter 

 

This is for customers in the US who are interested in purchasing a E17.

 

As usual, we are updating the status of the E17's on their way to us via our twitter account: https://twitter.com/miccastore

 

Due to the Chinese new year, this shipment is still dawdling around in HK for the time being. Tomorrow we should see it hop on a plane for the trans-Pacific flight. The best estimate we can give is arrival by 1/24. However, as in the past, we will not be accepting any orders until we can be certain that we can deliver. 

 

It will be available on our site initially, none on Amazon. As a benefit, we will be including an 3-ft toslink-to-mini optical cable, a toslink-to-mini adapter, and a FiiO T-Shirt for all orders in this first batch. Pricing is set at $139.95 and we will be offering a bundle pricing with the E9. 

 

We will be monitoring this thread for questions.

Q&A:

How much?

The price is set at $139.95, including standard shipping. We only charge sales tax in VA. Standard shipping takes 5-7 days to receive from date of shipping. Expedited shipping will be available for an additional charge, and will deliver in 2-3 days after shipping.

 

Any bundling discounts?

Sure, there will be the complete array of bundling options including FiiO accessory cables (L2, L3, L7, L8, L9, L30), amplifiers (E11 and E9), headphones, and etc, all at mildly amazing prices. 

 

Can I pre-order?

We will only be accepting orders when we get a committed delivery date from the freight carrier. We understand that many customers are anxious to order, but our goal is to guarantee a quick and fast order fulfillment process once the order is received.

 

Will they be available on Amazon?

Initially, no. They will only be available through our site. The goal is to quickly provide these for sale without additional delays. Also, since we are bundling the other items with this first batch of E17s, it's far easier for us to ship rather than Amazon. Future batches of the E17 will find their way onto Amazon, and this will likely be in the second half of February as a rough estimate, although ones sold through Amazon will not have the additional bundled items. The price on Amazon will be the same: $139.95

 

Will the units be rationed out slowly?

All units will be sold first-come first-serve. If you want a notice for when the product will become available, subscribe to our twitter account as we will post updates there. You can see from our twitter account, we use it as a tool for good, and not evil. So you are not going to get midnight tweets of groan-worthy fortune cookie messages. Oh wait... 

 

Can it be shipped to non-US customers?

We will only be selling this to US customers. We've occasionally sold items to Canadian customers when they were not able to obtain an item locally. A money order is required as payment for Canadian buyers and we don't believe there is enough time to do this for the E17. It is generally the best idea to obtain products from existing local dealers.

Will you be selling them on amazon using Fulfillment by Amazon? I won't mind paying a bit more for that...

 

Are you guys going to wait for the first couple of E17 to be delivered and reviewed? Maybe if they get really good reviews after this, word gets around, and demand grows... you will offer them on Fulfillment by Amazon? Whats the game plan? LOL

I love you man! That toslink cable and adapter will be very useful if the USB connection doesn't work.

 

How soon can I order the e17? And how?

So....are you going to enable the FiiO E17 for sale (and available) on your website, and then tweet about it, or are you going to tweet about it, and then enable the FiiO 17 for sale (and available)?
