[Upcoming] FiiO E02i "Rocky" and E12 - Page 8

post #106 of 116

we apply the MFi licence from Apple in 3 years ago, but seems they don't want to approve a chinese brand/company. usually it will be more easy if we are a western company. 

 

and it is not the fault of Apple , because most chinese company tend to high the real quantity of the sales to save the licence fee.

In case anyone is wondering....most Chinese are fans of Apple and so won't blame them hahaha. There are some injustifications I see sometimes but in all honesty, you can defend Apple in almost every case if you are a fan of theirs and know what you are saying and follow them enough.

Even if this were the case, that's just one example.  In general I was speaking in regards to many other things.  That device is just what triggered my response, lol >.<

I don't see EQ adjustment on the rendering of the E12.  I'm wondering if there will be a screen like the E17?

No screen, probably no EQ as well. It is supposed to be high-end and guess what, those things tend to be considered blasphemy in the high-end world.

That part makes me wonder in the end. What pretense some even go by but even though I think that, I can understand why. For the purist type of way.

 

I'm guessing no bass boost either, not that I would care as I wouldn't use it on a device of that caliber anyway.

Well, equalizers have been around as a tool for audiophiles since I was a child which was around the same time cassette tapes replaced 8-tracks, so IMO it is nice to have the option for certain genres.

Hey, I don't make up the belief biggrin.gif. I personally also like more options even though I seldom use them.
