I would also suggest that the volume knob be knurled, devices that are knurled have a more aesthetic appeal to them.

 

Cant wait!

E12 will have two versions, one for DIY, one is comercial version. the OP AMP is replaceable in the DIY version. and plan to sell the DIY version by ourself and without quality warranty.

More companies should be like this.
Giving people review samples for giving a contribution to the community.

Sadly I don't own any FiiO amps at the moment, but I wouldn't be surprised if that changes in the future.

Keep up the good work!

The price will not higher than $199. but for the DIY version, it also depend on the OP attached. some high end OP is very expensive so we can not reply it now.

DIY version?

Sounds interesting. Might built one of those just for the fun of it.

LOL, I will be very happy if Apple can provide me a free iPhone5 for review. 

 

Anyway, we will try our best to provide more free review samples, usually we will prepare about 20+ free samples to our fans, head-fi'er, editor, and such etc.. but plz understand us that we need to make sure the reviews can cover more regions and media as possible. 

 

And we have a review application to people who want to review our products, we hope the reviewer should have the skill in SQ and reasonable device to help other people.

Of course, I imagine your priorities may be attracting the non-head-fiers first; the people who might want better sound quality, but are not into this hobby enough to browse head-fi all day long like I do.
Most of the people around here have at least heard of FiiO's reputation, even if they don't own any FiiO amps themselves, but this is not true for the general consumer masses which you may be able to attract by having reviews on completely other websites.

I'd love to review one of your products in the future. That'd be the least I could do for contributing so much to head-fi by offering affordable gear.
Before that time comes I want to get some more experience with different amps first, since as it is now I have never done any thorough comparisons between amplifiers.

Thank you for the news FiiO! I've been practically living on Head-Fi right now, and I just go and reply to threads that appear on my list. The E17 thread shows up frequently.

 

Now, I've been getting asked this CONSTANTLY by members with E17's that are exhibiting problems or are worrying about warranty. I see there is an updated warranty on your site.

http://fiio.com.cn/about/Asissit.aspx?MenuID=020902

 

I'm not sure when it was updated or what the previous one before it was but my idea of your warranty and aid before the whole counterfeit fiasco was this:

Buy local or from an authorized dealer in your country. If any problems, go first to the local level. They are faster and are in your country. If they can not get it fixed, FiiO will deal with the problem personally by asking them to please deal with the problem. Lastly if the device in question can not go on the local or regional level, the device will be sent to FiiO HQ in China (at owners own expense) and FiiO will fix it and send it back free. However as this is in China, it will take too long and so FiiO likes to prefer to keep things regionally.

 

This is what you told me half a year ago.: Now with that updated warranty page, which I'm not sure when you updated it, I think you guys are saying this:

Buy from Authorized dealers only, FiiO will not provide support if you do not buy from an authorized dealer. If you bought from deal extremem or some company that is not official and the device breaks, FiiO is not responsible for it. Even if the device is real, as the device was bought by another person, per the limited warranty terms, the warranty is not transferable to any other person.

 

 

Quote:
All FiiO products  come with a one-year limited warrnaty against defects In materials and workmanship from the original date of purchase from an authorized agent.

 

 

Quote:
The limited warranty is provided to the original owner only and is not transferable to any third party. 

If you do buy from an authorized dealer and problems arise, the above first thing I posted on contacting local and or regional agents and authorized dealer you purchased from would be best.

 


Would this be correct? I have had a few questions asked about it and am confused myself on your new warranty stance.

I believe what was meant is that the "DIY version" would be a tweaker's version.  I highly doubt that you'd be able to build one from the ground up.  However, it would be constructed in a way that one could easily get the case cover off, and install various op-amps to tweak the sound and performance.  Also, by doing this, it would essentially be provided with little, or no warranty.

 

I think this news is pretty exciting.  Being able to get something of audiophile quality in the $200 range?  Nice.  Very nice.

I think it will be a moddable and already mostly assembled if not fully assembled PCB  and various screws and the case it self in pieces that you can buy. With FiiO either giving us a list of op amps that have been known to work with it right out of the box and or us making a thread on op amps that work well with the E12 DIY variant.

 

$199 is a bit... high so it may put some users off, but it is also good as it shows FiiO moving forward. Taking it step by step, price range by price range to get up to the top while refreshing some lower lines along the way! Let's see how the $200 portable amp market responds to the E12. It may be a mixed bag but only reviews will tell :) The E11 had price on it's side for being a power amp with bass boost for $60. The E17 had features and options on it's side for $140. I wish FiiO success with the E12, just like with the E17.

 

It seems the E12 will be similar to the E11 as in. Chargin wise where you have to take it out to charge. I hope Micca store will again release a cheap accessory pack!

The DIY version means you can change the OP amps by yourself. so you can DIY the sound by yourself, also we may provide customize laser printing for the DIY version, and it will be limited edition.  so this model should be call E12D. for the price, it is too early to decide it will be $101 or $199 because

 

the design has not finished. but for most poeple who buy the comercial version. the price will be reasonable.

 

Noted that FiiO's portable amps line up will includes 3 basic universal model, E6-E11-E12, with a special model which only support iPhone, before is E1, now we have a new model E02i, so E12 will be the eldest brother.

Thank you very much!

 

Now can you answer my question on your current warranty and support?

It has been asked quite a few times.
